Kid friendly mooring spots in Long Island Sound

We currently keep our boat on a mooring off of South Norwalk, CT. It is easy to get to, cheap, and near all the restaurants and festivities of that town. The problem is that it is right in the Norwalk river, with boat traffic passing all the time. That means swimming there is out of the question.

With two young kids now, we're increasingly using our boat as a floating summer home and not going to as many places as we used to. We'd like to find a place to put down a mooring in a quieter, calmer place; hopefully it would have clean water for swimming and perhaps even a beach nearby. Of course, we'd need a place to keep our dingy on shore, and a place to park our car. If dogs are allowed on shore there, even better.

We live in Hoboken, NJ, and normally drive to our boat Friday night or Saturday morning to spend the weekend. Does anyone have any recommendations for places we should check out?
