I'm not surprised: Closure info posted in the New London Day:

"Seven state parks with campgrounds in southeastern Connecticut will close
from noon Friday until noon Saturday because of strong winds and heavy rains
expected from Hurricane Earl.
Gov. M. Jodi rell said that even though the storm is not expected to hit the
state directly, the move was being made for safety reasons.
Hammonasset Beach State Park, Madison; Rocky Neck State Park, East Lyme;
Hopeville Pond State Park, Jewett City; Devil's Hopyard State Park, East
Haddam; Salt Rock Campground, Sprague; and the Mount Misery and Green Falls
campgrounds in Pachaug State Forest, will close for at least 24 hours.
The state Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) will ask all campers
to leave the seven affected campgrounds Friday morning. DEP plans to allow
campers back to the parks by Saturday afternoon unless the impact of the
storm or weather conditions require a longer closing."
