Hi Mylife,
There are non within about 25-30 miles of New Britain. How long are you planning on staying? Do you expect visitors?
The reason I ask is that for an extended stay (more than two weeks or so) I would recommend "Wilderness Lake" in Willington, CT. It is a Passport America CG so you can save a few bucks there if you are PA, and the visitor restrictions are not as bad as most. Some 50Amp, most 30Amp, and if there for more than a week, Honey wagon pump out was free. Almost all CG's in CT charge from a few dollars to $5 or more per person for visitors just to visit, not stay over. I think this stinks but too many have taken advantage of them and fill the CG's with visitors and ruin it for just someone to stop over for a burger and a beer.
The closest one is "Lake Williams CG", in Lebanon, CT. It is gated to the extreme. The owner is obnoxious, the sites are grass, tilted, and muddy, and only a dump station, and plenty of poison ivy, some 30Amp sites. Went there five summers in a row and got treated like he was doing me a favor taking my money. I will never go there again. He is also PA but only for one day. Close to route 2 and easy to get to New Britian, but don't recomend it. There is another in Lebanon about 5 miles further (for got the name) but last I knew only 15 amp sites, and very small sites, but very clean, neat, swimming pool, and very nice people running it, but too small sites for my rig.
There are others in Willington, but only 15Amp, small sites also, and very crowded on the weekends.
There is another in Northampton, CT, that also have very small sites, 15Amp and very vistor restricted, and very crowded.
I haven't tried the ones near the coast and the Casino's yet, but they are much more expensive.
If I can be of further help, just fire away.
Hope you enjoy you stay in my home state.

Hershey Park is a better choice. I completed a six week tour of New England and the eastern states late last year and found some of the best places in Eastern PA and some of the worst in my old home state of CT. While Heshey is great I would also look for a family amusement park that is one of those hidden in the woods kind of places that doesn't have a fence around it. Check the states tourism office for the name of it. I forgot what it was but will be looking for it on my return. The worlds biggest Cabelas and the Crayola crayon factory is also on my to do list. Some of the best spots to camp are in Lancaster county, another great tourist location. You can't help but have fun.

We are going to Lebanon, PA because that is where Thousand Trails is and it would not cost us anything. From there we will visit Hershey Park, etc.
