We just returned from a very wet Labor Day weekend at Tolland State Forest. We booked late and got the last available tent site. It was a great site -- large, level, shaded, and private. It was pretty far from the bathrooms though. We were so glad we brought our bikes with us, not only to bike to the bathrooms, but also to the lake and all around the campground. All of the campsites seemed really nice. Many are on the water, but some of those seem to have smaller and less level spots for tents. Although the campground was packed, it was pretty quiet except for some barking dogs and crying babies. The beach was nice and we had it pretty much to ourselves, since the weather was awful. It must get crowded when the weather is decent. There are a lot of trails and we enjoyed a soggy hike on the Gilmore Trail -- saw tons of salamanders (or were they newts?). The women's bathrooms were modern and relatively clean. I wish I hadn't seen the cleaning in progress though -- filthy old mop and black water being dragged around the floor. Yuck! My husband complained that the men's room stank and was filthy. There are dishwashing stations too. As others have commented, it's a 10-15-minute drive to a convenient store. It's a cute store though, with some local produce and a farm stand across the street. We hope to go back and have better weather!
