Devil's Hopyard Campground

Devil's Hopyard Campground
Devil's Hopyard consists of 940 acres and is located in East Haddam, CT. The primary focal point of the park is the Chapman Falls whose water tumbles over the rocky escarpment more than sixty feet. The water from the splash pool at the base of the falls, continuing as the Eight Mile River, flows through the hemlock canopied picnic area, providing a tranquil setting for a family outing. No less than half a dozen myths surround the name of the park. The numerous potholes at the base of the falls are the basis for one tale which suggests that these formations were the result of the Devil hopping from ledge to ledge in order not to get wet. The cylindrical holes were "burned" into the rock by the "hot hoofs". Activities and facilities at the park include picnicking, camping, stream fishing, hiking, mountain biking, picnic shelter, outhouses, gravel parking and drinking water. The campground contains 22 campsites in an open field setting.
