Ways to Stay

Nickerson Park Family Campground offers a wide range of sites; from secluded plots beneath the trees, and group areas under the stars, to trailer sites overlooking the river, and easy-access pull-though pads for larger rigs.

Explore below to find the perfect base-camp for your next adventure!

Full Hook-Up

Located just a short walk from the banks of the Natchaug River, our Full Hook-Up sites offer Water, Sewer, Cable TV, and up to 50 Amp Electrical service. Each site offers a gravel pad, and a grassy lot, with a picnic table and fire ring.

For guests looking for easy-positioning and simple setup, there are multiple Full Hook-Up, Pull-Through sites that are ideal for Motor-homes or Fifth-Wheel Trailers.


If you’re looking for a site with a view, you’ll want to camp on one of Nickerson Park’s River-Side sites. Each of these 40+ campsites sits directly on the west bank of the Natchaug River, giving guests a front-row seat to some of the valley’s most beautiful sights and sounds. Many of these sites provide direct access to the river for fishing and swimming.

Sites along the river include hook-ups for Water, Cable TV, and up to 50 Amp Electrical. Due to their close proximity to the water-front these sites do not have sewer hookups. Dumping stations are available for use at the end of your stay.

Wooded Area

The North End of Nickerson Park contains a number of wooded sites perfect for tents or smaller trailers. These plots provide guests with a beautiful camping experience among the trees. Many of these sights are located along the Natchaug River, or the forest edge.

Most of these sites include on-site Water and 20 Amp Electric.

Group Areas

Nickerson Park offers a large area for big groups, perfect for family reunions, church groups, or youth programs. This space includes the use of a pavilion and large fire ring.
