IndianWell2Indian Well was so named because of the Romeo and Juliet-like Native American legend surrounding the park’s scenic waterfalls and the splash pool at the bottom of the falls. Local Native Americans never actually used the area as a well, according to the Connecticut DEEP. In 1928 Indian Well was established as a state park.

The park is open from 8 a.m. through sunset.

Park goers can picnic at the beach.
