Welcome to Kettletown State Park
Kettletown State Park, situated in the towns of Southbury and Oxford, contains 605 acres and was originally inhabited by the Pootatuck Indians, members of the Algonquin group. Early colonists reportedly traded one brass kettle for use of the land for hunting and fishing. Eventually, the settlers acquired complete rights to the area and, by 1758, the Pootatucks had either migrated to the northwest or perished. The cool waters of the Housatonic River make Kettletown State Park and Lake Zoar popular recreation destinations. Kettletown Campground offers 63 sites in both open and wooded settings. Youth Group Camping is available at Kettletown State Park. The park is open from 8 am to sunset. Pets on a leash are permitted in picnic areas and on hiking trails. Pets are not allowed on the beach or in the campground. There is a weekend/holiday parking fee and a campsite fee at Kettletown State Park.
