The winter weather won’t stop families camping at a new campground built at the former 4H camp in East Haddam (Connecticut)

According to a report, glamping is the way Machimoodus Getaway Campgrounds in Moodus billed itself. The 86-acre former 4H camp is now home to 45 guest cabins. They typically sleep two, but nine cabins can comfortably accommodate four.

“Each site comes with an outdoor fire pit, chairs, firewood that you can purchase,” said Allison Neeven, general manager, Getaway Machimoodus.

The inside is charming, it has a kitchenette, a king-sized bed, and an entire bathroom with a shower. Campers don’t have to bring food. If they’d like, it will be there upon arrival.

Campers don’t need to check in with anyone. They’ll just have to walk right into their cabin and receive a code on their mobile.

“People love going to the middle of nowhere, sitting by a fire, and just disconnecting,” Neeven said.

There’s a lockbox available for cellphones, or visitors can go out and explore the Goodspeed, Opera House, Gillette Castle, or go for a hike. It’s pet-friendly, too, with a fenced dog park.

“It is pretty shocking to see so many cars and the labor of love we put into this place,” Neeven said. “To see all the people enjoying it with their pets and going for walks on our nature path.”

Visitors can’t get lost. Each cabin may look identical, but each has distinct names, named after a Getaway family grandparent.

“We have a lot of people that come just for that one-night reset,” Neeven said. “We have a lot of people that come for the weekend. Our weekend warriors, they just hang out do hikes all around the area,” Neeven ended.
