The 9 Best Places for Glamping in CT

If you’re looking for a higher-end camping experience, though – a “CT glamping” experience if you will, you’ve come to the right place.

Some would argue that all Connecticut camping is glamping. After all, we’ve got some of the top nature spots in CT here.

As I’ve talked about in many other articles, I’ve got little kids (3 of them).

I’d love to take them camping, but I’m going to need some top-shelf amenities when we go.

I want a nice cabin or yurt, nice bathrooms, and, if possible, a pool.

As much as my family loves hiking and swimming in lakes, when I take them camping, it’s going to be glamping.

I did a little research and found places for glamping in CT and decided to share the list with you.

So, let’s get right to it.

Odetah Campground – Bozrah

Odetah is hands-down one of the best all-around campgrounds in Connecticut. There are so many great activities here.

Here, you can find primitive camping, but if you’re looking for glamping, you’ll be booking one of the cabins or yurts.

The Premier Cabins have bathrooms, electricity, a/c, running water, and a mini-kitchen.

The other cabin levels are still very nice and provide a great glamping experience, but don’t come with restrooms or running water.

Lake Compounce is Connecticut’s best-known amusement park, but did you know that you can find camping here?

The deluxe tipis are your best bet if you’re looking for a classic glamping experience. They come with cots, electricity, and a mini fridge.

Of course, if you camp here, you’ll be just steps away from all the fun that Lake Compounce has to offer.
