Mashamoquet Brook Sp Campground

Mashamoquet Brook Sp Campground
Mashamouquet Brook State Park consists of 1,000 acres and is located in Pomfret, Ct. The present park was formed by combining three parks: Mashamoquet Brook, Wolf Den, and Saptree Run. An interesting trail system provides access to the various areas and features of the park. The most famous of the park features is the Wolf Den into which, on a night in 1742 Israel Putnam crept and shot a wolf which for years had preyed upon local sheep and poultry. The same Isreal Putnam was later to gain fame as a Major General in the Continental Army during the Revolutionary War. Near the Den are the Table Rock and Indian chair stone formations. Activities and services in the park include picnicking, fishing, swimming, field sports drinking water, concession, picnic shelter and camping at two different areas. The Mashamoquet Brook Campground contains 19 wooded campsites with outhouses, drinking water and a nearby dumping station. The Wolf Den Field campgrounds contains 35 mostly open campsites with flush toilets, showers drinking water and dumping station.
