Although we could not go inside the castle because of Covid, we were able to walk around it and on the grounds so we got an idea of its enormity and the grounds are lovely.

This is an amazing setting. Even with the castle closed to tours, the grounds are gorgeous with beautiful views and a bit of a trail to explore. Well worth the trip!

We went on a rainy day and the tour of the castle was closed. Although I was a bit wet, I enjoyed touring the outer part of the castle and the spectacular view behind the castle. Interesting place, and I hope to return on a day that I can explore a little more indoors and out.

The inside of the castle was closed when we visited due to COVID but the grounds were open until sunset. We were able to walk up to and all around the castle and there are even some trails that take you around behind and below the building. Views of the Connecticut river are incredible.

We were in the area and stopped. The castle and the grounds are beautiful. It was sprinkling the day we went and we were the only 2 at the park. Due to COVID the castle itself is closed but there are hiking trails and you can take a ride on the ferry across the river.
