Rent an RV in Eastern Connecticut

People say the New England area has some of the most beautiful scenery in the country, so it makes sense that Connecticut is a top destination for an RV trip. If you love fall foliage, you absolutely won’t find a better spot to take in the leaves. Of course, the rest of the year is pretty good too. Whether it’s Gillette Castle State Park with its medieval castle-like mansion, the incredible displays at Mystic Aquarium, or the boardwalk at Ocean Beach Park, you’ll quickly learn why people love it here.

The Top RV Resorts in Eastern Connecticut

Strawberry Park – 42 Pierce Rd, Preston, CT
If you want an RV park that has plenty of family fun, this is the one for you. Almost every weekend has some kind of theme, and there are supervised activities seven days a week. There are two nationally acclaimed music festivals in the spring (a bluegrass festival and a cajun zydeco festival), and there are even heated pools when the weather gets cool, plus a splash pad for the kids. This site is near both Foxwoods and Mohegan Sun casinos.

RV Rental Locations in Eastern Connecticut

Hidden Acres Family Campground – 47 River Road, Preston, CT 06365
The “hidden” aspect of this park is maybe the biggest thing that keeps people coming back here year after year. If you want a riverside retreat to relax, you’ve found your destination. This park is on the Quinebaug River, which provides excellent opportunities for fishing or (for the more adventurous) tubing. The Mystic Aquarium and Seaport is located nearby, as are a pair of casinos and Connecticut Wineries.

Wilderness Lake Campground & Resort – 150 Village Hill Rd, Willington, CT 06279
Just a few minutes off I-84 sits over 100 acres of pristine New England countryside, home of Wilderness Lake. The freshwater lake here provides a chance for fishing, swimming, or boating, and there are trails for hiking and biking. It’s worth noting that this park does try to keep the “wilderness” in tact, so there are plenty of dense trees around.

The Top RV Destinations in Eastern Connecticut

Gillette Castle State Park
As the name implies, Gillette Castle State Park is home to what looks like a medieval fortress from the outside. But inside, there’s a one of a kind house with built in couches and tables, artifacts, and woodcarvings that are the brainchild of actor and playwright William Hooker Gillette. The incredible estate took five years to construct and is open for tours today. There are also several hiking trails through the area that give great views of the river and rare rock formations.

Small RV Rental in Eastern Connecticut

Mystic/ Olde Mistick Village
Stop off at the town of Mystic, a small town devoted to all things maritime. There’s the beautiful Mystic Seaport, the Mystic Aquarium, several art galleries with local work, and even Mystic Pizza, the restaurant made famous by the Julia Roberts movie. Lots of things in Mystic are geared towards kids, so this is an excellent destination if you have the family in tow. Olde Mistick Village is a recreated 18th century New England village that offers a nice change of pace from the shopping mall. More than 60 small shops are located in the village, along with many small restaurants.

Sheffield Island Lighthouse
First illuminated in 1868, the Sheffield Island Lighthouse is currently on the National Register of Historic Places. Even though it was retired in 1902, it sits today as a museum and nature preserve. The Seaport ferry at Sheffield Island takes visitors on a harbor cruise to the island, where the 10 room lighthouse has period furniture and an excellent glimpse at 19th century life. The nature trail at Stewart B. McKinney Wildlife Refuge is nearby, a chance to see a variety of wildlife (like nesting herons) in their habitat.
