Bristol/Southington, CT - After much planning, Lake Compounce is proud to announce that it will be opening Bear Creek Campground at Lake Compounce. The new 15 acre campground, opening Summer 2014, will complement the historical 168 year old Lake Compounce park and newly added Crocodile Cove Water Park.

Bear Creek Campground will feature 20 fully furnished cabins that sleep up to 10 people each, 56 RV sites with water and electricity hook ups, and 30 tent sites. There will also be a main lodge that will feature a general store and lounge. Each camp site is equipped with a picnic table and campfire pit. There will be a store on property where staples may be purchased, as well as a variety of beverages, snacks and prepared foods.

"Guests can turn a trip to Lake Compounce into a family vacation because they now have the option of coming to the area for more than just a day. They can enjoy the theme park and the water park, and also spend time visiting other popular sites in Connecticut as well” says Jerry Brick, general manager. "An added benefit is the ability for campers to spend time in the park and return to their campsites at their convenience throughout their stay.

Bear Creek Campground sites may be reserved starting in March on the Lake Compounce website. Sites start at $45 per night. Campers may purchase discounted tickets to Lake Compounce Theme Park and Crocodile Cove Water Park upon checking in. Group rates will also be available.
