About 1,800 people call the town of Norfolk in Litchfield County, Connecticut their home. One of the best-known facts about Norfolk is that it's the home of the Yale Summer School of Music and it hosts several musical events each year. There's also an exciting variety of architecture in the town that dates back to before the city was incorporated in 1758. Norfolk is also known for its abundance of recreational activities, most of which can be enjoyed outdoors with your dog by your side. In its 46 square miles, Norfolk has three state parks, each as beautiful as the next.
These state parks are dog-friendly if your dog is on a leash, and the two of you can enjoy miles of hiking trails and other park features together. Campbell Falls State Park is a 101-acre park in the northwestern tip of Norfolk. In fact, a tiny portion of the park even crosses the border into Massachusetts. In addition to the miles of trails to trek in the park, it's also home to a 50-foot waterfall where you're sure to want to stop for a photo opportunity. On a day when you and Buddy aren't at one of Norfolk's state parks, the two of you can make the short drive to a nearby off-leash park!
