Farm River State Park

Route 142, Mansfield Grove Rd.
East Haven, CT 06512


Farm River State Park may not rank high on the list of parks by size but it is well placed when ranked by location.  Taking its headwaters to the northeast, the Farm River flows 16.5 miles on its way past the Park where visitors enjoy the sun, sights and salt air of Long Island Sound.

This quiet park has fascinating and picturesque geology. The uplands and bedrock outcrops, especially in the northern section, provide the landscape diversity and the topography that allow tidal marsh flooding to separate the park into its upper and lower portions.  The river shoreline and its access points in the southern section provide a quiet and scenic respite not often accessible this close to the coast.
