Hurd State Park is a public recreation area located on the east bank of the Connecticut River in East Hampton.. The park is known for its scenic views of the Connecticut River and is surrounded by nature. It offers a variety of recreational activities such as hiking, picnicking, and mountain biking. One of the unique features of Hurd State Park is that it is one of four Connecticut state parks that offer primitive camping for boaters on the Connecticut River. The park is recognized by its landmark "split rock" towering above the trees. Fun fact: In the granite ledges of the split rock are veins of feldspar which was once mined extensively in Connecticut.

This site is part of the Connecticut River Paddlers Trail, which includes campsites, access points, and portage trails along the river.
