Overall, Rocky Neck State Park is a nice campground. The sites were a decent size, generally flat and paved. However, we probably would not camp there again for a couple of reasons. First, the beach was too far away; a 1.5 mile drive from our campsite to the beach parking lot. Second, the bathrooms could use some help. Third, there was no playground that we could find. We camp with small children and it is inevitable that someone will need something back at the camper after having arrived at the beach. Having said that, the beach is awesome for small children. Being on the LI Sound, the waves are gentle and the water is very shallow for quite some distance from the beach. We enjoyed swimming during the day and watching the sunset (on the beach) at night. The beach was also very clean. Regarding the bathrooms, they were cleaned every day, had hot showers and were otherwise acceptable. However, the shower curtains had a healthy amount of mildew on them. Near the end of our stay, the cleaning staff must have realized this and decided something needed to be done . . . because someone cut the bottom two-and-a-half feet off of each curtain. As a result, the shower curtain barely hung below your waist! Not only was this a little unnerving, but everything you brought with you into the shower stall got soaked. There was not playground. You can only play frisbee or throw a ball around for so long before the fun wears off. It would have been nice to have a couple of swings and a slide to mix things up. I should mention that a "nature center" was just recently re-opened after having been closed for 5 years. It had a nice collection of indigenous snakes, turtles, etc. for the kids to look at. Also, the young man that worked there was very knowledgeable and offered to take us on nature hikes. If we did camp there again, we would avoid camping near the tent sites. The tent sites only have port-a-lav' s available. Thus, we had a steady flow of tenters passing through our campsite to use the full service bathrooms in our loop and wash thier dishes. If you do camp there, make a trip to the Submarine Museum at Groton. It was very nice. It is also free.
