  • Beautiful state park,well kept. Been going here since I was a child
  • This is a GREAT state campground! There are some nice trails, the bathrooms and showers are kept up, and the swimming area at the lake is also really nice!
  • Tolland state forest may or may not suit what you are looking for. From the bright side it is family friendly, water recreational centric and the campground is neat and has wide site On the other side it turns to be pretty noisy with constant boats or jet ski around. We love to be out and camp in more quiet places. That said it may just fine for you!
  • Great fun for boating and kayaking, nice lake houses/cabins, great for summer bbqs and even moose come in our family's cabin's yard
  • We had a horrible experience, for experienced campers. The camp was great during the day; clean, nice staff, very typical; however, we had three nights of chaos at night and got very little sleep. It my be due to bad luck, so I am asking anyone considering camping here to make sure local camps don't hold festivals across the lake. We stayed Father's Day weekend and found a drug hippie festival called unifier parting all night, Saturday and Sunday, at camp timbers. They started parting both nights late and ended when the sun came up. It was so loud that my family decided to leave Sunday night at 1am. On Friday, some men got so wasted and we're playing loud music till around 3am. The staff tried to control them and monitor them but would not kick them out till it was morning because they were so wasted. Saturday, there was a domestic disputes after 2am, which was so scary that I and several others, called 911. The guy did leave before the cops came and the women seemed to be okay. After that, the unifier party was loudly heard to 7am. Sunday, we left at 1am due to unifier partining again. Staff told me that there was nothing they could do and nothing that the police could do. Do to these events, I will never camp over the weekend. I may try during the week to see if the crazies will stay away because it is a pretty place in a good location in the Berkshires but it was insane. I think I would be okay with the wasted campers and the domestic dispute, but the all night party from unifier is what made my experience so terrible.
