General Information

Description - *This information was provided by the Connecticut Department of Environmental Protection*

Campbell Falls State Park is a natural area with no developed facilities and plenty of Geology and Natural features.

History- Campbell Falls State Park Reserve was a gift to the State of Connecticut and the Commonwealth of Massachusetts from the White Memorial Foundation of Litchfield Connecticut. The Whiting River, rising in Massachusetts falls nearly 100 feet before entering Connecticut. The park was placed under protection of the two states in 1923 and special laws were passed in 1924 to authorize the cooperation in care and maintenance of the park.

Attractions - Campbell Falls State park boasts many streams and dense wooded areas containing a wide variety of trees. Several waterfalls are also present in the area.

Recreation - Hiking- There are numerous well beaten paths throughout the forest upon which a hike is possible. Pets on a leash are allowed inside the park. Bridges have been installed to make hiking easier, and many geological features can be viewed along the way. (See site for Geological details.) Stream Fishing- Small stream fishing on a limited basis is avaliable. (See site for details.)

Climate - The climate of this state involves a moderate amount of humidity, heat and cold. Summer highs reach 90 degrees F with low temperatures near 65 degrees. Evenings near the water can become cool and light jackets and sweaters are recommended. Winter temperatures average in the mid thirties during the day and in the teens at night. Rarely do temperatures dip to zero, especially in the southern portion of the state, where the water influences the more temperate weather.

Location - Follow Route 272 north from Norfolk center. Take a left onto Tobey Hill Road. The park is on the right.
