Indian Well State Park Beach
This is Indian Well State Park beach area in Shelton, CT.
It is located on the very scenic Housatonic River and is not affected by tides.
The picnic area has recently been renovated with a new snack bar and restrooms.
It is a pretty big park with huge fields for Frisbee playing, and it has a new boat launch.
There is a shelter and lots of picnic tables and grills for your hamburgers. The beach is not a large beach, and they replenish it with sand every spring, because every winter the sand washes away.
This is the only State Park located in the Shelton area. When I was there last year it cost $4.00 to get in. People walk their dogs here in the off season. The beach area is lined with pine trees, so if you want to get a suntan you need to come in the morning. This beach never gets overcrowded, and there are plenty of places to park.
DIRECTIONS: Take Rt. 8, exit 14, go north on Hwy. 110 through Shelton downtown, follow 110 several miles and you will see an Indian Well State Park sign on your right, turn and follow this road about a mile and you'll see the sign for the waterfall on the left. Park there in the little area to the right if you want to see the waterfall.The beach is further down the road another mile, you'll need to make a right into the park.
Disclaimer: As with everything in CT, you can almost bet this information and rates will eventually change.
