Mystic CT campground recommendations

Looking for a campground in the Mystic CT area. I have a 38ft 5th wheel. Any recommendations?

I can't help with a recommendation but can steer you away from the KOA there. Don't get me wrong we love KOA in general but the Mystic KOA is rowed up like soldiers with VERY little space between you and your neighbor. Also very open with no shade. We were there twice in our 25 ft TT and would not even consider going back in our 42' fifth wheel. That being said, if all you want to do is park it somewhere and spend little time around the campground and your camper and go see the area then it is well located and for that purpose would be fine. For a destination CG though, no. Hope you find something that suits.

that's just as good as a recommendation, thanks. I hate being cramped up.

Yeh. It's tight. 'Maybe' 12ft between you and the next camper. Not good. Actually the tent sites back in the woods are much nicer. Lol!

Seaport Campground in Mystic. And if you don't have to be right there in Mystic there is a beautiful state park in Rhode Island called Fishermans State Park which is about an hour from Mystic and also close to Newport Rhode Island if you are looking for things to do. I have not been to Seaport yet, going at the end of July with a group so I don't know what their size limits are but you can call 860-245-2800 and they can answer any questions.

40 minutes west of Mystic is Hammonasset Beach State Park. Seriously, just go there. It's a beautiful park, right on the beach. Sites are so huge we could pull our 32' motorhome on the site SIDEWAYS so that the awning faced the road. Family friendly, clean, beautiful beach. We were only there one night and kick ourselves everytime we think about it. We're from Cincinnati and have no earthly reason to ever return to Connecticut, but we're thinking of going back just for this park.

I live about 40 minutes northeast of Mystic. Unfortunately, there are no campgrounds I would stay in at Mystic. As mentioned earlier, there are a couple of nice state campgrounds, Hammonasett and Rocky Neck. STAY AWAY from Niantic by the Atlantic. I haven't been to Aces High for a while, so I cannot comment. Laurel Locks in Salem, CT is right on Gardner Lake and is well maintained. Salem Farms, also in Salem, is nice as well, but both are a 40 minute drive.

Burlingame State Park in Charleston RI is nice also. No hook ups. Maybe 30 minutes from Mystic. 5 minutes to nice Ocean beaches etc.
