Not on the Lake and Need a Place to Swim?

Feel like just cannonballing into a cool refreshing pond?!

Hot, humid weather is in the 5-day forecast. Don’t have a place on the lake… not at a campground… want a place to swim?

How about the town beach in Sutton?
Marion’s Camp on Lake Singletary. Just take Tuttle Road off of Singletary Ave up past the center of town. Here’s the link:

The Sutton Town Beach at Marion’s Camp is opened daily 12pm – 6pm.
Resident passes are $25.00 per household and non-resident passes are $50.00 per household. They are sold at the beach or the town hall. I don’t know if they have a day rate.

If that doesn’t work for you…

On Manchaug Pond, one campground offers day swimming and picnicking: the Old Holbrook Place. $4.00 each adult and $2.00 each child under 12, I believe. You can buy ice cream, candy, soda and chips at the store.

Or you could get the tent and the kids and try camping at one of the other two campgrounds:

And then again there is the campground at Aldrich Mill Pond just up the road: Sutton Falls Campging Area.

King’s and Sutton Falls have large camps stores with groceries, small toys, and camping accessories.

Personally I have not camped at all the campgrounds so I cannot give any recommendations. I can only let you know what is available! 🙂
