5 Parks near Hanscomb AFB, Massachusetts

Because this Famcamp is located immediately next to an airfield, noise level is high during daylight hours. After sunset, the aircraft noise is normally not present.
Washer/dryers are available at $1/load. One dryer was out of service during our stay here. Power was stable during our stay. Pedestals are new and easy to hook up to.
Staff is friendly and helpful, furnishing information on how to travel to Boston and surrounding areas.
We stayed in one of the new sites which are in an open area with no tree cover. - Lakewood90

We were able to get a shaded spot at this park, which was a huge help in the heat. It is right next to the airstrip and the kids loved watching the planes take off and come in, but it did mess with our wifi signal.
The park is convenient to Boston. There is so much to see and do, we could have spent 3 months here and not seen it all! - FrugalNavyWife

Great hookups and foundation for campers but sites are so small that slides nearly touch neighboring campers. In other words sites are way too small. Good for a last resort in the winter. - camper36687

We loved it here, one of the nicest, friendliest campgrounds we have stayed at. Makes you feel like you are really camping in the woods,. fire pit and all. About 30 minutes to the train station for commute to Boston. - John Hester

We Just spent 1 night while traveling south from Ellsworth Maine. This park was easy to find, and easy to access. It is a beautiful, heavily wooded park. The trees adding privacy to every site and the feeling that we were truely out in the wilds. The interior roads were easy enough to negotiate, but it was very helpful that the staff led us to our site and helped us maneuver into it. - tweymouth

What a beautiful campground. We weren't sure what to expect when driving through some of the industrial areas up to it. All the reviews had been good and they were right, a hidden gem.
Our site was easy to drive in & get ourselves levelled. Services easy to access. - Our-Wandering-Casa

This park is very convenient to the Nashua, NH and Lowell, MA areas. It is a small park on a beautiful lake, and primarily caters to long term residents. The park offers few amenities, but the rates are very reasonable. Comcast cable and phone service is available on every site. The park is closely monitored by the owner via video cameras, and it is not unusual for the operators of the part to come out and meet incoming campers without being prompted. No pool, showers, or Wi-Fi is provided, but if you need a decently priced campground for a long term stay in this area, this park stands out. - tricotec

This place looks like it has finally closed as suggested in a 2004 post. Although it was open last year, all rigs are cleaned off from the premises and the web site telephone number is "no longer in service". Make way for some condo's! - jdkd123

This park is located at Salem Harbor and still houses the Fort Pickering Lighthouse. The views by the marina parking lot and the bluffs by the beach were lovely. The options for RV camping around in varied locations through the park. We camped in a 20 foot travel trailer with our two grandsons, 6 and 8 years old. They placed us in the equivalent of a parking lot field with water and electric connectivity. The location of the park is most convenient to downtown Salem and you can also take the tour trolley ($$) into town and back and get interesting information that tour guides provide. If you are looking for convenience this location is fine. Dump site is at a location about one mile outside of the park. Many RVs were also parked in the parking lot by the Harbor but they were in open sun and also with other cars in the lot. Many tent campers came and went onto grassy sites here and there in the park. The park is open to the public for picnicking, hiking and swimming. - John-Jean

This is a bare-bones campground, but with one big positive--the trolleys stop here on their tours. This means you can park here and not have to drive into Salem to sight see. The office sells tickets and the trolley is on/off as much as you want. It is also bike riding distance to town. The field campground is dust and dirt, with packed in RVs. Every time someone comes in, there is a cloud of dust, so I kept all windows closed. The waterfront sites are basically also cramped, but in a parking lot overlooking the marina. A big negative is that there is no dump station, so you have to drive down the road to the sewer plant. Another negative is that it is a tight and stressful drive through Salem's traffic and narrow streets to get here. Not fun. - judy_online

I understand what previous reviewers have said about this campground but my experience was very good. This campground has much others do not. It has a great walking trail, great beach and view. The Wifi is strong and free. It also has a great history going back to the Revolutionary War and is the location of a previous Coast Guard station. It is also the location of Gallows Hill where they used to hang offenders. - LarryJohnston
