The Great Outdoors

There's an excellent variety of outdoor activities to enjoy in your RV rental near Salem Farms Campground. Devils Hopyard State Park is located less than 10 minutes' drive from the campground. There you will find several charming trails for hiking and bicycling. It's also a great place to enjoy a picnic or even fish in the local streams. The biggest attraction, however, is the stunning waterfall, which features mysterious potholes at the base of the waterfall. You'll want to bring your camera to document the stunning beauty of the falls.

Salem is also a short drive away from the coast of Long Island Sound. During the summer, you'll want to visit the charming beaches in the area.

This is a great place to go boating or swimming, and there is fishing available too. It is very scenic and has a calm, quiet atmosphere. It's a great place to get away from hectic city life. It's important to note that the nearest boat rental services are all near the coast, so you'll need to go there first if you don't have a boat of your own.

Exploring The Area

Although this campground is located in a very rural area, there is still plenty to do within a short drive. The coastal town of Mystic is just a short drive away, where you will find several historical landmarks, including the Mystic Seaport Museum and the Brant Point Replica Lighthouse.

This mansion was built by actor William Gillette in the early 20th century. It has a very unique medieval style that makes for a fascinating tour.

Camping at Salem Farms Campground puts you in a very rural area, so you will need to travel a little farther than usual for essentials.

However, there is a small general store much closer if you're in a hurry.
