SOUTHFORD FALLS STATE PARK
Have a day of family fun at Southford Falls State Park. Spend your day enjoying field sports, or try your luck at catching trout.
At the turn of the century, this was the site of the Diamond Match Company. Scenic waterfalls are at the southeast end of the Park on the Eight Mile River. The Larkin Bridle Trail is nearby.
Connecticut has made state parks, forests, trails, historic sites and beaches more accessible to our residents so they can enjoy the many attractions and beauty they offer. Under the Passport to the Parks program, parking fees are now eliminated at Connecticut State Parks for those with Connecticut registered vehicles. You can view the CONNECTICUT PASSPORT TO THE PARKS
