“It’s summer and time for wandering…”
 - Kellie Elmore
Whether you're swimming at the beach or hiking in the woods, summer is the most popular time for everyone to get out and about.  The dog days of summer are great for taking a vacation, stay-cation or maybe just an extended weekend to relax, decompress from the daily stresses of life and rejuvenate your senses. With 109 State Parks in Connecticut you're bound to be close to one.

Great Park Pursuit 2016
Another successful run of the Great Park Pursuit, the Connecticut State Parks Family Adventure concluded with a campout at Rocky Neck State Park on June 11 where over 40 families braved the threat of thunderstorms to pitch a tent and sleep outside.  The Adventure kicked off at Keney Park on April 30th in Hartford and guided or self-guided events were held every weekend through June 11.  Take a look at our highlights from the 2016 Great Park Pursuit.
