About

State Park

Description Located just 35 minutes from downtown Boston, this 260-site (half with electricity), campground boasts a network of trails - biking, hiking and some of the best mountain bicycling in the state. Enjoy fishing and canoeing in the reservoir and ocean swimming at nearby Nantasket Beach.

Geography: One of the most notable features of the Park is Mt. Blue Spring which is a popular source of fresh drinking water. Visitors can help themselves for free. The park is named for an Indian chief the local colonists knew as Josiah Wompatuck. In 1665, Chief Wompatuck deeded the park and the surrounding land to the English settlers. During WWII the park was used as an ammunition depot by the US military.

Recreation: Wompatuck State Park offers 12 miles of paved bicycle trails, and many miles of wooded bridle paths and hiking trails. This is also a geocaching park as one can find up to 30 geocaches within park boundaries. Fishing is allowed in the Cohasset Reservoir. A boat ramp is provided for car-top boats, but no boat trailers, please.

Facilities: This beautiful forested campground offers 260 spacious campsites, flush toilets and showers. Each campsite is furnished with a picnic table, pedestal grill and a fire ring. With 125 sites with electric hookups and a dumping station, this is a very popular facility with trailer campers.

Nearby Attractions: While in the area, be sure to visit other nearby DCR properties: Boston Harbor Islands, Blue Hills State Reservation, Nantasket Beach, Myles Standish State Forest and historic Pilgrim Memorial State Park.
