Back in June we went camping at the Pachaug State Forest (I've been a bit busy in the meantime having a baby and all so I'm just posting it now). It was a campsite where you parked and had to hike into so you only brought what you could fit on your back. Carrying everything in isn't as easy as it may sound; it's the camp fire wood and water that really make things heavy, but on the way out it's a lot lighter!
The campsite was free, we just had to register online so we knew it wasn't taken.
I think it is no dogs allowed though.... (shhh don't tell).
The hike in was only about a mile or so and had a shelter to prop your tent up in. We brought books and some good food to cook over the fire. It was probably one of the most relaxing camping trips we've had together. The state forest also has another free shelter to hike into that we would like to try out sometime.
Are any of you going camping this Fall? I might be too soft to handle the cold.
