We are thrilled that so many families are looking for a seasonal site at Sunfox, and have added a few campsites to our seasonal program for 2017. However, all of our 2017 seasonal sites are now filled. We expect to know if any sites will become available for 2018 by September 1, and would be happy to add you to our seasonal waiting list. Sunfox offers a limited number of Seasonal Sites, as well as a variety of shorter camping packages, such as “spring seasonals”, “summer seasonals” and “fall seasonals”. A wide range of seasonal sites are available, all with full-hook-ups (with water, metered electric, 48-channel satellite cable TV, wifi and a sewer connection). We are able to accommodate any type of standard RV, including 40’ trailers with slide-outs, with some sites equipped for Park Model units, up to 12’ in width, with 30 AMP service. For both safety and appearance purposes, each RV is subject to approval, and is based on initial acceptance of an RV no more than 10 years old. Any seasonal request for an RV more than 10 years old must be accompanied by a photograph of the unit. For all our long-term sites, site improvements such as decks, storage boxes and attached rooms are permitted, but must meet the specifications of Sunfox Campground. Please note that per CT State statutes, any RV on location for more than 90 days during the camping season will be subject to personal property tax assessment from the Town of Lisbon (as well as on any deck or attached room).
2017 Seasonal Camping Program
Sunfox offers the best and most complete seasonal camper program anywhere. Our seasonal agreement covers a full 12 months—from April 1, 2017 until March 31, 2018. This consists of unlimited camping from April 1 through October 31, as well as on-site winter storage. Please note that during the spring and fall, when school is in session, children are not permitted for extended duration stays, but are allowed during weekends and school vacation periods. In addition, golf carts are NOT permitted for camper use. However, those in need of assisted transportation may consider 3 or 4 wheeled handicapped scooters.
Advantages of a seasonal site at Sunfox Campground include:
- Never having to haul your RV back and forth (saving time, money and gas)
- No registering with the office upon arrival, or leveling the unit and connecting the utilities each time you travel
- No reservations ever needed
- No check-in or check-out times

This special does not include a 2nd site free on our “2 for 1” weekend. This program is limited to those campers using the site on weekends and any recognized holidays or school vacation periods (1 week of mid-week camping permitted), and is not intended for those seeking daily use throughout the period, for which published monthly rates would apply. Rate includes up to $60 of metered electric usage.
2017 “Summer Only” Short Seasonal: June 18 to September 1 (the Friday that starts Labor Day Weekend), this plan covers more than 10 full weeks of the summer for just $2199 W/E/S/TV or $1999 without sewer (gray water dry well only, with pump-out service available), a savings of more than $500 over the summer weekly rates.

2017 Fall Seasonal: September 8 to October 30: Enjoy the fall season (includes the 8 weekends after Labor Day) for just $899 for a site with water, electric, sewer and cable TV, or $799 for a site with water, electric, satellite cable TV and a dry well for gray water (pump-out service available). This special does not include a 2nd site free on our “2 for 1” weekend. Rate includes up to $60 of metered electric usage. This program is limited to those campers using the site on weekends and any recognized holidays or school vacation periods, and is not intended for those seeking daily use throughout the period, for which published monthly rates would apply.
Storage: While winter storage is included with our full seasonal, if electing on-site storage with our short seasonals or for any other purpose, the rate is $150 for Winter Storage On a Campsite (November 1 until April 1).
Year-round Camping 2017-18: Sunfox has only 6 sites that have been in pre-existing use for winter camping, and all 6 are reserved for the 2016-17 winter. The rate for the “full winter” of November 1, 2017 until April 1, 2018 (5 months) is $2375 (an average of $475/month—payable at $500/month for Nov-Feb, and $375 for March…or $2275 if paying in full by Nov. 1), with winter water, sewer, Satellite Cable TV, plus metered electric. Although it is unlikely that any winter site will be open for less than the full 5 month period, a monthly rate of $500 plus electric would apply to a shorter winter stay of 1-4 months.
Per CT State Statutes, the town of Lisbon will assess a personal property tax on any RV that is located at Sunfox for a period of greater than 90 days as of the annual assessment date (typically October 1). Many campers choose to register their RV locally, as the mil rate in Lisbon is very low (most recently just 19.5), compared with many other CT towns. For example, an RV worth $20,000 would be taxed at about $275. Therefore, all “full seasonals” are subject to this assessment, while campers opting for the “short seasonals” would not be assessed by the Town of Lisbon unless the combination of programs creates a stay of greater than 90 nights where RV is at Sunfox as of assessment date.
