Griswold is a growing community located in Southeastern Connecticut. It is situated right off Interstate 395. Although Griswold has, in the past, been mostly farmland, Griswold is building a strong tourism base.

Griswold is rich in forests, lakes and rivers. It is the home of Hopeville State Park and Pachaug State Forest, the largest state forest in Connecticut. You will find many campgrounds nestled along the shores of the Pachaug and Quinebaug Rivers. Whether you favor a rowboat, canoe or motorboat and water skiing, you will find the perfect body of water to explore. All have state boat launch access.
