Satan's Kingdom State Recreation Area is a public recreation area occupying one-acre (4046.8 ha) of land beside the Farmington River in the town of New Hartford, Connecticut. The site is located on the north side of the Route 44 bridge over the Farmington River. It is used as a put-in for canoeing, kayaking, and tubing excursions on the river.
The gorge through which the Farmington River flows has been known as "Satan’s Kingdom" since at least the 1820s. The recreation area was added to the roll of Connecticut state parks in 2012.
