You’ll feel extra lucky when you drive into Aces High RV Park, where the owner is renowned for going the extra mile and ensuring guests feel right at home.
RVs roll off the interstate and get connected to electricity (30/50 amp), sewer, and water, plus the internet so you can stay in touch with distant friends and family. Sites are crushed gravel and superbly level, offering pull-through and back-in access with picturesque trees for shade. A picnic table and fire ring are provided with a daily rate of $74 that goes up to $80 if you want a premium site overlooking a lake.
Classy cabins offer travelers a fully furnished accommodation in an inspired country setting with a waterfront view. There are no spaces for tents but plenty of grassy spaces to walk your dog. The rules enforce an on-leash policy and for owners to bring litter bags and clean up their pooches' waste. There are no breed restrictions, only a request that woofers appreciate this 93-acre paradise and play nice with guests and other dogs.
A gorgeous swimming pool invites campers to cool off while the hosts get inventive with camp activities. The season kicks off in April when local bands perform at the pavilion, and the fun continues throughout the year with volleyball tournaments and bonfire parties ending in October with a spooky Halloween celebration!
Restrooms, showers, and a laundry are clean and well-kept, and if you want to go fishing, hire a paddleboat and get out on the lakes. The park has a few trophies to be proud of, as it was voted Best Small Park for quite a few years. For this reason, the hosts encourage campers to book ahead, as national holidays and the summer months are prime times at the park.
If you’ve come to explore the trails, you better head for Nehantic State Forest Trail, only three miles from the park and an enlightening 6.5-mile trek through an ethereal forest where you can take your dog.
The nearby town of East Lyme boasts a seaside village ambiance with boutique stores, a casino, and family-friendly restaurants. If delving into the town history is a hobby of yours, take the kids to the Brookside Farm Museum, where they can witness what it was like to run a dairy farm back in the early 1900s.
Camping at the Aces High RV Park puts you in the box seat for a fun-filled holiday and opportunity to explore the charm of Connecticut. Security gates ensure camper safety while offering a peaceful haven that's close to plenty of local attractions.
