Incorporated in 1721, the town of Voluntown lies in the southeastern part of Connecticut, bordering the State of Rhode Island, as well as Windham County and the towns of North Stonington and Griswold. Located half way between Boston and New York, Voluntown is conveniently accessible from I-95 and I-395, Route 2 and the scenic highway of Route 49. The town's population of 2,400 doubles during the summer months as its tourism season flourishes.

Visitors enjoy lodging at places such as Nature's Campsite, Circle C Campground or Tamarack Lodge, and hometown cooking at popular restaurants such as Town Pizza and Claudia's. Nearby Pachaug State Forest provides 28,000 acres of recreational opportunities and the area is known as one of the top five sites for fall foliage in Connecticut. Within town limits, visitors will also find numerous riding trails and the state's only "horse camp", as well as boating and fishing at Beach Pond, which has a public boat launch and is annually stocked by both Connecticut and Rhode Island.

Voluntown is also home to many entrepreneurial companies offering services from carpentry and construction to antiques and motion pictures. Dairy and tree farms are an important part of the Voluntown economy, as well.

"Voluntown is a unique little town. The Town has always worked well with us and is fortunate to have great assets like 26,000 acres of state forest, the Pachaug River and recreational opportunities like hiking, mountain biking, kayaking and other outdoor sports. It is a great place for people who love the outdoors!" - Pete Lazourack, Nature's Campsite
