    Hingham, Massachusetts

    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.

    Salem, Massachusetts

    Winter Island Park, nestled near Salem, MA, is a gem for those looking to explore the historic city while enjoying a coastal camping experience. This campground operates from May 1 to October 31 and offers a mix of tent, RV, glamping, and yurt accommodations. It's a popular spot, especially during Salem's bustling Halloween season, so reservations are a must.

    The campground boasts some fantastic bayside sites with stunning views of the bay. These spots are highly recommended, even though they are close together. The RV field and hanger spots are more utilitarian but provide a convenient base for exploring Salem and even Boston, which is about an hour's drive away.

    Visitors have praised the friendly staff and the cleanliness of the facilities. The campground features electric hookups, drinking water, and showers. While there are no sewer hookups, there is a sanitary dump station available. Pets are welcome, and there are picnic tables at each site. Fires are allowed, but you'll need to rent a portable fire pit from the camp store.

    One of the highlights of Winter Island Park is its proximity to the water. You can enjoy the beach, launch a kayak, or simply take in the beautiful ocean views. The park also has a playground, making it a great spot for families. For those who prefer not to walk, there are Lyft services and a trolley that can take you into Salem.

    Overall, Winter Island Park is a fantastic choice for campers looking to combine a bit of history with their outdoor adventure. Whether you're here for the Halloween festivities or just to relax by the water, this campground has something to offer.
