Black Rock Sp Campground

Black Rock Sp Campground
The name "Black Rock" is derived from the local graphite deposits which the early settlers of the Naugatuck Valley were allowed to mine by the resident Indians. Visitors can enjoy the scenery of the Western Highlands while hiking the blue-blazed Mattatuck Trail which connects the park to the woodland sections of the Mattatuck State Forest. The campground consists of 91 wooded and open campsites, all located within a short walking distance to the beach and swimming pond. Camping facilities and services include a concession stand/camp store, drinking water, dumping station, flush toilets, showers, and gravel/grass parking. Each site has a fire ring and a picnic table. Firewood and ice are available at the camp office. Activities at the park include camping, picnicking, swimming, stream and pond fishing, hiking and field sports.
