Wildwood State Park comprises 600 acres of undeveloped hardwood forest terminating on the high bluff overlooking Long Island Sound. Trailer and tent sites are available for campers. Swimmers can take advantage of the cool waters of the Sound, and picnickers can relax at shaded picnic tables as their children enjoy the nearby playground. Visitors can fish and use the hiking and cross-country ski trails. Fall Festival will be held on September 25, 2010.
I went early in the season, and it was pretty quiet - though I hear the camp fills up with families in peak season. Good amenities and a nice spot for car camping - and a nice train ride out if you take the LIRR.
A few trails that loop around through the woods, and a nice long stretch of beach too. I didn't have any issue w/ ticks, but I wouldn't recommend heading out without plenty of DDT for yourself and permethrin on your gear.
We have been going camping here every summer for as long as I can remember. There are some hiking trails which are marked and easy to follow. There are never crowds.You can even go off the trail a little and see the sound. We have seen deer and even packed a lunch in a backpack and stopped to have lunch. The kids love it. We always make hiking part of our camping trip.
