Lake Compounce is a great compact park for family fun. We live in Florida, where we often frequent the very expensive theme parks, (especially the one with the Mouse, among many others) and we have found that Lake Compounce is a very enjoyable, almost "quaint" park that we love visiting whenever we are in CT. Walking the park from end-to-end... More

Awesome place to go when you want to take the children somewhere without too much hassle. My daughter loves it and the season passes are well worth the expense!

Lake Compounce is a lot of fun. My family and I have been there 3 times in the past 2 years. The lines for the rides do not seem to be too long, but the water park does tend to get very crowded at times. We like the fact that you can rent lockers to keep your stuff in while... More

Hi Yacker! thanks for taking the time to review Lake Compounce! We are continually working on expanding the water park due to the continued popularity, visiting on a weekday is generally less crowded. Make sure to visit us during October or December! More

The Boulder Dash did not disappoint. However the Ghost Hunt ride did...my laser gun wasnt keeping track of my points and my girlfriend beat me. The water park was nice and I enjoyed playing volleyball and having random people join in. Its a great family theme park in Connecticut.

I'm 12 and naturally, I loved this place! Not all of the rides were my thing, but it's not like you have to go on them all. My favorite was the river rapids ride. There's really not much to say, just please come to this awesome place because believe me, you deserve it.

My experiences with Lake Compounce have all been positive. I have attended the Lake Compounce Haunted Graveyard 6 times and visited the park during the summer twice. Admission rates are steep-but really no different than any other amusement park in the area. Additionally, with admission, you get free soft drinks all day long, which while seemingly a small favor, is... More

This is more of a review for the new Bear Creek Campground. The amusement park itself is great. We live in the area and get season passes every year. The kids love it and it's great for a few hours of fun. That I would give 4 stars to. We decided to try out the brand new campground last month.... More

Looking for some fun in CT?? Head over to Lake Compounce in Bristol. We have been season pass holders for the past 2 years and will continue to be for years to come! Some quick highlights... great kid section for kids under 42 inches. Up and coming water park which gets better each season. Halloween and Christmas themed events. And... More
