CSA SONGWRITING RETREAT
Where in the World is Camp Wightman??

The longer answer is more confusing. Because the camp covers 200 acres,
Camp Wightman’s mailbox is located in Griswold, Connecticut and our address
(for GPS purposes) is 207 Coal Pit Hill Rd, Griswold, CT. The vast majority
of the camp falls within North Stonington, but it has a Griswold phone
number; however, if you look for us in the yellow pages, the camp is listed
as being located in North Stonington .
DIRECTIONS: see below
For GPS purposes, enter 207 Coal Pit Hill Rd, Griswold, CT
Notes: Bottom line: You want to get on Rt 201 and just stay with it, no
matter how it twists and turns, Coal Pit Hill Road is off 201, on a curve.
Note that 201 is co-linear with Route 2 for several miles in either
direction of Foxwoods Casino. Rt 201 splits off from Rt 2 at a light (also
called Cossaduck Hill Rd at that point).
Note that when the directions below say 'a mile and a quarter up the dirt
road', it may seem like a lot farther when you're on that road because you
have to go slow (potholes) and you're really in the middle of the woods.
