Lake Compounce has long been one of Connecticut's most popular amusement parks. Through the years it has grown to accommodate new attractions including roller coasters and a water park. It seemed as if it had everything you needed in one location to keep visitors entertained. Lake Compounce continues to evolutionize by introducing a campground on site.

For the first time this summer guests can stay overnight at Lake Compounce's new campground, Bear Creek. Bear Creek will be located a short walking distance from the park. Campers can experience the camping life while being minutes away from their favorite amusement park. Turn your plans into a weekend or week long getaway.

Bear Creek will feature tents, RVs, tipis, and cabin rentals. Be aware that camping fees are cheaper during the weekdays compared to weekend prices. Tents can accommodate a maximum of six people at a price of $45 or $50 per night, depending on weekday or weekends. RVs have a maximum of eight people for $60 or $70 per night. Tipis hold a maximum of six people at a price of $90 or $100 per night. Cabin rentals with a maximum of six people, or up to 10 for an additional price, will cost $150 or $175 per night.

Special accommodations include a 24 hour access restroom with showers, a general store, and daily family activities. If you need to pack light or decide to extend your stay, a laundry room is available. Pets will be permitted on leashes. The tent sites will feature fire pits and picnic tables. Campers will get a $9 discount off of a single-day admission ticket to Lake Compounce.

For their first year in operation the campground will only be open from July 1st through September 6th this 2014 season. Reservations can be made online, or by calling Lake Compounce for more information. Lake Compounce is located at 822 Lake Avenue in Bristol, CT.
