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.

This place has a bit of everything to make your stay comfortable and enjoyable. The campground operates from May 15 to October 15, giving you a good chunk of the year to plan your visit.

    One of the standout features here is the easy beach access. You can spend your days soaking up the sun and enjoying the ocean without having to travel far.

Facilities like bathrooms and showers are available, and while they might be a bit dated, they get the job done. Showers are coin-operated, so bring some change.

    The location is pretty convenient, too. It's close to both Gloucester and Rockport, so you can easily explore the local shops, restaurants, and scenic spots.
