Just west of Campbell Falls State Park lies our 45-acre Whiting River Reserve. While it’s a neat property, we do not have convenient access to the bulk of our property lying south of the River. That’s a shame because the hillside tucked up against the Connecticut border is very pretty. But access to the River and its fish is only a short scramble downhill from Campbell Falls Road. And Campbell Falls itself is worth as short detour.
