Father's Day weekend saw our return to Bear Creek Campground at Lake Compounce in Bristol, Connecticut. We spent 4 days at Lake Compounce and my kids loved every minute of it. Our first visit was last Father's Day weekend and we went again later in the summer. Bear Creek is a relatively new campground, built in 2014, and owned by Lake Compounce Amusement Park (Festival Fun Parks LLC). The campground is located across the parking lot from the park entrance and it is easily walkable or there is a tram that provides guests rides to and from the park.
During our first stay last year, we became Lake Compounce Platinum Season Pass Holders and thanks to a Black Friday Special, we are Diamond Pass Holders this year. Bear Creek has new Stay and Play Package options or you can purchase a Lake Compounce season pass starting at $55.
While we stayed in a RV site, Bear Creek offers tent, tipi, cub hut and cabin rentals, in addition to both tent and RV sites. This was our third stay at Bear Creek and each time they have made improvements to both the facilities and programming from our previous visit. The Activity Schedule is a little more robust this summer and the kids had fun crafting and playing games.

My three kids keep asking when we'll be returning to Bear Creek this summer and we hope to book another trip towards the end of August, this time with friends! Overall, it's a great place for families, and the perfect place to plan a fun activity like making sponge water balls to keep cool on those hot summer days.
