Campground Details

Open: Open from mid May through mId October
Number of Sites: 22

Located along the southern border of Massachusetts in the towns of Granville and Tolland, this state forest's 2,426 acres, borders with Connecticut's 9,152 acre Tunxis State Forest, creating a sense of tranquil remoteness. Formerly, this extensive rolling terrain was once the hunting and fishing ground of the Tunxis tribe, later becoming open farmland and pastures; now slowly reverting back into a northern hardwood-conifer forest. In 1749 the first English pioneer to this area, Samuel Hubbard, settled along the banks of the river now bearing his name. Enjoy a walk along the Hubbard River as it cascades through natural rock formations forming pools and waterfalls, dropping a rapid 450 feet in 2.5 miles.

Recreation at Granville includes a wooded camping area with toilet and shower facilities, offering access to nearby regional tourist attractions. Other popular activities include bird watching, wildlife viewing, snowshoeing, and mountain biking.

Camping Services and Amenities: 22 campsites with flush toilets, showers, picnic tables, and fireplaces available.
Camping Season: late May to mid-October

Very nice grounds; Park Manager is rather jerky!

Overall the camping experience at Granville was okay. The hiking is enjoyable, fun and easy-to-moderate in difficulty. It's a very pretty park almost rainforest in nature. The sites are a little close together so there is not very much privacy and the number of sites are quite limited. The bathrooms were very nice, clean. They did have a dish washing area outside the bathrooms with a full sink which I thought was a nice touch and quite handy .

The camping biggest negative is the Park Manager! I have to say that the manager of the campgrounds was really unpleasant ...
