Forget the state campgrounds, look at the private ones. I used to camp a bit (before kids). The one I really liked got sold to the state, who then shut down most of it, including the really nice, secluded tent sites.

I've been to this one a couple of times http://www.beaverpinescampground.com/. They have some nice remote tent sites. The one I used to go to (R3, I think) you couldn't get to with a normal vehicle, had to be 4WD. Or the owners would shuttle your stuff in on their UTV. I haven't been in about 10 years or so, so no guarantees.

Idk if you're responding to thread-jacking Kurtz (:P don't ban me) or not but it looks like that place does allow alcohol.

Yeah, responding to the thread jack. I can vouch that they have no problem with alcohol.

We used to go to a friend's property in VT, but that's gotten more difficult as people's schedules got more complex. We just wanna be able to drink(lots of CT campgrounds don't allow alcohol) and sit around a fire BSing past 10pm.
Pitch as many tents as you want in my back yard. Park the RV in the front. There's a fire pit, speakers, and miles of woods for the murdering.

No place allows alcohol. But I’ve never been kicked out sitting around a fire with beers/bourbons/brunch cocktails or even for any strange “smells” coming from our site. Basically it’s a get out of jail free card for camp grounds. Be an asshole, they spot a beer and can toss you.
