Hide-A-Way Cove Family Campground is located in Killingly, on the shore of Middle Reservoir, just north of Route 101, and a few miles west of the Rhode Island border. The region is often referred to as “Mystic Country,” a rural oasis between the metropolises of Boston and New York City, covering the eastern third of Connecticut. At its heart is the Foxwoods Casino Complex, New England’s largest casino and one of its most prominent entertainment venues. The casino is only a half-hour's drive away when you choose a rental motorhome near Hide-A-Way Cove Family Campground.While that might not seem like a great distance, the campground feels a world away from the glitz of a major casino; its rural setting is more suited for reading a good book or just watching the wildlife roam free in a nearby clearing. Hide-A-Way Cove isn’t short on modern amenities, though; the RV campground has laundry facilities, hot showers, a campground store, and propane fill-ups available, in addition to the water and electrical hookups at each site. Those enjoying the more social aspects of motorhome camping will appreciate the variety of planned events taking place at the campground each summer, providing them with the opportunity to mingle with fellow travelers. Should you decide that you need to get out and explore the wider world, though, Interstate 395 is only a few miles west of the campground and can take you up to Worcester, Massachusetts, or down to New London.

While there are no tall mountains in the state, the vast forests of eastern Connecticut are the playground of hikers and trail runners. Quinebaug Lake State Park is a favorite spot, with several short trails crisscrossing the park and a small lake to paddle around in. If you don’t have a boat of your own, the closest rental shop is just up the road in Killingly.Ross Pond and Old Furnace State Park are also quite popular and are just east of Interstate 395. These adjacent parks once contained iron furnaces that were built prior to the Revolutionary War, but little remains of them. Today, the three-mile-long Old Furnace Trail is used by hikers and cyclists looking for a quick workout, and the Half Hill Cliff Face is a favorite with local rock climbers.If you’re looking for a great scenic drive when you get an RV rental near Killingly, Route 146 is a reliable option. Running for twelve miles between Branford and Guilford, it’s an alternative to busy Route 1, which becomes congested with traffic during the summer. It’s a fantastic way to see the salt marshes, forests, and coastal features that are emblematic of Connecticut.Something you wouldn’t expect to see in southern New England, though, are bison. But your eyes aren’t deceiving you, these lumbering creatures can be found at the bison farm in Brooklyn, just a short west of Killingly. These gentle beasts are incredibly tame and relatively friendly too, you can even pet them if you feel inclined.
Mystic Country is a fascinating region to travel through and one that few people stop to enjoy on their trips between Bean Town and the Big Apple. But it’s an area filled with historical significance, particularly the town of Killingly outside Hide-A-Way Cove. One of its most fascinating stories involves Prudence Crandall, the woman who opened the first school for African American girls back in the 1830s. Her schoolhouse closed not long after, but it has since been converted into a museum, so generations to come can learn of her ambitious attempt at education for all.Ever since the days of the Revolutionary War, New England has been producing high-quality alcohol. Whether it be wine, beer, cider, or spirits, New England, and in particular, Connecticut, has got it. Travel around Mystic Country, and you’re sure to find a few vineyards, breweries, or distilleries offering tours and tastings for thirsty travelers.For some, the slower pace and subtle nature of Mystic Country can feel somewhat confining. Fortunately, the city of Providence is only 45 minutes' drive away when you rent a camper near Hide-A-Way Cove Family Campground. The Rhode Island capital really punches above its weight, with fantastic cultural attractions, sports venues, and excellent restaurants to indulge in.The WaterFire is almost certainly Providence’s most talked about attraction; it’s a bi-monthly bonfire on the water display accompanied by art installations and musical performances. Then there’s the Rhode Island School of Design, one of America’s most famous design schools. The school’s art museum is a sight to behold, with intricate needlework projects, priceless paintings, and top-notch sculptures to peruse. Providence’s Dunkin' Donuts Center plays host to Providence University’s men’s basketball team and the Providence Bruins ice hockey team.
What type of RV should I choose?
Start by determining how many people are planning to travel with you. Going on a solo-journey? Choose a camper van or a teardrop trailer. Bringing the whole family along for the ride? Consider a spacious Class A or five-wheel.
You’ll also want to consider amenities. For example, if you’re planning to cook on the road, you’ll want a kitchenette. If your campground doesn’t have public restrooms, you’ll want to search RVs with bathrooms. Check out full descriptions of our models to help you decide here.
Do the RVs have bathrooms?
Yes. Class A’s, Class B’s, and Class C’s and five-Wheels typically have bathrooms. Depending on where you plan on camping, you’ll want to double-check the availability of restrooms if selecting a rig without a bathroom. Nervous about renting an RV with a bathroom? Owners can help show you how to clean the tank or will offer to do it for you for a fee.
