Locations >> Devil's Hopyard
Chapman Falls and a parking lot are near the junction of Hopyard Road and Foxtown Road in East Haddam. The trail runs from the road above the waterfall beside the water to the rocks down to the pool and river. It is an easy walk from the parking lot to the rocks, where Chapman Falls makes the perfect wedding backdrop.
A covered bridge wedding in the Devil's Hopyard State Park would be a great symbolic way to begin your journey of marriage together.

Each season brings different colors to Devil's Hopyard: Crocus and other colorful flowers for your spring wedding, bright greens for your summer wedding, brilliant foliage for your autumn wedding, and earth tones for your winter wedding.
Near Devil's Hopyard State Park is the Fox Hopyard Golf Club, a beautiful, well-maintained golf course. "On The Rocks" is the restaurant and lounge attached to the Fox Hopyard Golf Club.
There is a covered walkway between "On The Rocks" restaurant itself and the outside patio. You could plan your outdoor wedding on the patio, get dressed inside, and CT's changeable weather would not dampen your plans.
