Granville State Forest
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.

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 ...
