I stopped in here for the first time to go for a fall hike over the weekend. There were a few trails you could take and they were all extremely well marked and took you through various parts of the woods. There were some views but you definitely would want to come once all the leaves fell off the trees to see better. There was good parking, maps now and then, and free to get in for CT residents. You can't ride bikes on the trails here, something to keep in mind.

Kettletown SP is fantastic. I do a lot of my trail running here and it is really a fun place. There is hiking, trail running, a beach w/swimming, and camping. There are also plenty of picnic tables if you would like to BBQ.

Souhtbury is lucky to have 3-4 state parks and land trust properties. Live close and use all the time, in every season. Nice trail system with some scenic overlooks of the Housatonic. Great for cross country skiing in the winter.

They have a very nice little beach area in a cove. The hiking trails are well laid out and maintained. They also have a camping area. It’s a nice gem.

I live about 2 miles from Kettletown Park and visit there frequently for walks with my wife and our dogs. I've also camped there with my children. It is a beautiful state park with a beach and numerous hiking trails with various degrees of difficulty. I would highly recommend it for camping or a day enjoying the outdoors. One caution though, Southbury was hit by a tornado this spring and there was tremendous tree damage suffered within the park. Crews are finally in the park and actively cleaning that up so that by the spring of '19 it should be back in good shape.
