We camped here in early October 2020 and enjoyed our stay. We stayed in Beach loop which I think is the best area. Large grassy sites, just beautiful. We had a 27 foot Airstream and a large tent on our site and still had a ton of room. Most of the other loops were not in use due to COVID restrictions. Easy check in process, Clean bathrooms, clean sites. Kind of a bummer that there were no fire pits but you could rent one from the campground store. Sites were level and a short walk over the dunes to the beach. Other loop sites look closer together - it is a huge park.

We didn't stay here but visited friends who were camping to avoid paying more for the cottages we stayed at across the street.

Anyway, Connecticut state parks are pretty expensive, and non-residents pay up to $45 to camp in an RV in the park. Just to visit for the day, if you have a car, costs $22 on the weekends. Or you can bike in, as we did, for free as far as day access goes.

The campground is just a series of loops where you're essentially camping in wide open grass spaces, so there's no privacy at all. The beach is walkable or an even easier bike ride, and it's certainly beautiful. There was no trash and plenty of shells to explore. We went in September and the water was already frigid. A bike path from the park was fun and shaded, wide and well-maintained, and the bathrooms were clean.

The nearby town of Madison is pretty much a postcard of what I think everyone imagines New England small towns to be, and well worth the visit if you find yourself in this park anyway.
