Directions & Parking

Head of the Housatonic Parking

Because limited parking is available at Indian Well State Park, parking within the park is reserved for cars carrying boats, boat trailers, utility trailers, crew buses, crew vans  and passenger vehicles with handicap parking tags. Note that in order to facilitate parking in a limited space for the large number of car-topping scullers, all scullers will be required to unload their boat before moving their car to its parking spot. All other competitor and spectator passenger cars will park offsite. Regular bus service is provided between the offsite parking location and Indian Well State Park. Allow a minimum of 30 mins for transit time during peak hours. Note that propane tanks are not allowed on the shuttle buses.

Roads nearby the park entrance will be marked and enforced as a tow-zone and Shelton police will turn away cars at the park entrance.

Drop-offs at the park entrance are not permitted for safety reasons.

Please note that camping, alcohol and dogs are not allowed in the park.

No exceptions. If you are late go directly to offsite parking. Trying to get dropped off in order to walk in will only delay you more. Be sure to check the event schedule and leave enough time to park and ride the shuttle.

Parking for Boat and Utility Trailers

Boat and utility trailers are encouraged to park and unload at Indian Well Friday afternoon from 12pm-5:30pm.  A security guard will be stationed at the park overnight. All remaining boat and utility trailers must be in the park before 8:00am on Saturday. The park will open at 5:30am. After 8:00am all trailers may encounter delays and utility trailers may be turned away. Crew buses and crew vans will be allowed in the park throughout the day.
