Two miles of mountaintop resembling a sleeping giant give this park in Hamden its name. The resemblance also makes the mountaintop a distinguishing feature on Connecticut's skyline with a lookout tower, picnicking, hiking and nature trails. Parking fees are in effect weekends and holidays from Memorial Day weekend through Labor Day. There is no fee for camping.
