Connecticut River Island

Haddam Island State Park is an undeveloped 14-acre island located in the lower Connecticut River in the town of Haddam, Connecticut. The island was originally used by the Wangunk tribe and was reserved for their use as part of a 150-square-mile land sale to English colonists in May 1662. In the 19th century, the island was used for fishing and farming. The early 20th century saw it as a place of public recreation, and the State of Connecticut purchased the island and made it a state park in 1944. The park, which is only accessible by boat, offers activities such as boating, fishing, and birdwatching. According to legend, Captain Kidd buried some of his treasure on the island, but none has been found.
