People that are staying hotels or coming in for the day your best bet is to go to Cini Park 20 Main Street Niantic. There is a spot  right where the East Coast watercross truck is ,where you can just back your trailer using your truck to into the river to Launch.  If you have an ATV you can still launch your ski at the same location on the Ocean Side from the beach.
If there’s Racers coming in with oversize large rigs you can launch and park over night at the state deep boat launch in Waterford Connecticut.  ( Only use this if Cini Memorial Fills up)
Do not enter the “hole in the wall beach” entrance with trucks and trailers you’ll have a hard time turning around if you make that mistake. That area is for cars only and Spectators parking.
