Wilderness Lake Campground and Resort – Willington CT
I would never stay at this campground again! On their website, which looked like a nice campground, they post the campground rules and regulations of which they state “Quiet hours will be maintained between the hours of 10pm and 8 am”.
This campground has a recreational hall in which they were hosting a function which included a loud DJ and lots of people screaming. As any camper knows, sound travels greatly through a campground. We were sitting around our campfire at about 9:30pm, trying to relax a little in between the blaring music and people screaming, when I finally called the office to find out when the function was going to end (figuring it would end at 10:00pm as stated in their own rules).
The man at the office, which I believe was the owner of the campground, stated the function was going on until midnight!! We tried to sit by the campfire and ignore the noise a little longer but it just got worse. We called the desk and the man starting screaming at us that we were complaining and told us to leave the campground (hilarious……we got kicked off a campground because the owner was mad because he wasn’t following his own rules!)
By the time we packed up and left, at 10:20 pm, the music and partying continued just as loud as it was earlier. Please be aware of this campground. Apparently any rules they state they follow on their own campground are not the rules they actually follow. The quiet hours do not begin at 10pm as stated. Loud partying is allowed until midnight!
This is not a place for relaxation. It’s like camping next to a dance club.
