Rent an RV in Northern Connecticut


Visit the home of one of America's best-known storytellers at the Mark Twain House & Museum. Samuel Clemens' home was featured in 1000 Places to See Before You Die, and if you do, you can see his personal library, the Billiard Room where he wrote Huckleberry Finn, and tour his historic home and grounds. Also on your tour of famous American authors, visit the nearby Harriet Beecher Stowe Center to learn more about the woman who wrote Uncle Tom's Cabin, and see where she lived.

Relax in Bushnell Park and see the carousel dating from 1914, which is still in use today (and for $1 a ride, is still a pretty good deal!).

Finish with a trip to Dinosaur State Park and Arboretum, one of the largest dinosaur track sites in North America. Investigate fossil tracks that are more than 200 million years old, and walk the nature trails at the Arboretum.

Its population may be small, but with almost 62 square miles, Woodstock is actually the second biggest town in Connecticut. Spend some time in the other Woodstock, and visit Camp Nahaco Park, situated on Crystal Pond, for fishing, boating, and swimming in summer, and ice skating and cross-country skiing in the winter. The park also has a new disco golf course opening this summer.

The Northern Connecticut Wine Trail

Connecticut is unique in that its wineries aren't concentrated in one particular region of the state. There are vineyards and wineries all over Connecticut, and wherever you're visiting, you can probably find one nearby. While in northern Connecticut, you can follow some of the state's Wine Trail. In northern Connecticut, try the Taylor Brooke Winery in Woodstock (where kids are welcome, and you can pack a picnic to go along with your vino), the Land of Nod in East Canaan (which also offers fly fishing, and is near great hiking at the Blackberry River and waterfall) or the Sharpe Hill Vineyard in Pomfret (save time for antiquing in historic downtown Pomfret).

Where to Camp

Camp at the Mashamoquet Brook Campground at Mashamoquet Brook State Park in Pomfret.

Follow the Northern Connecticut Barn Trail

Connecticut is also home to many beautiful, historic barns. Go on a photo hunt for the iconic red barns in the state. In northern Connecticut, start in Woodstock, and find a few barns. The Historic Barns of Connecticut website has barns registered in every county, so you can look them up wherever your travels take you in the state. Just remember -- you may take photos from public property and streets, but you may not trespass onto private land.

If you're camping in East Canaan, also be sure to visit the Beckley Furnace. The furnace was built in 1847, and produced crude iron (known as "pig iron") until 1919. The furnace is situated on the Blackberry River, so along with some history, you get a lovely view as well.
