The best thing about this park is you can access Boston from it, it's about 4 to 5 miles from the ferry $4.50 each way. You can get über to the ferry or drive. We biked. The park is beautiful but staff found every reason in the book for not keeping facilities clean. Mold in the showers, dirty floor, etc. - Brian2000

Beautiful forest park with well-spaced sites and clean restrooms just outside a beautiful old small New England city. Convenient to ferry to Boston and roads to Plymouth and Cape Cod. We'll be back on our next New England trip. - Upstater

Rate reflects non-MA resident, electric only site. Since there was no water or sewer at any of the sites, we used their showers; they were fairly clean, hot water, and some even drained. Spotless and new? No, but adequate. We eventually got our 38' with opposing slide-outs in there and level. Some tree branches were touching the back and top. We were too close to the fire pit to have a fire. If you are big, be picky on which site you choose. Neighbors were far apart. Lots of folks gathering damp wood from the park for their campfires which resulted in lots of smoke in the air at night and sometimes during the day. GPS took us to a non-entrance to the park. Make sure you approach from the north west of the park on Union street; use the address on the web site (doh!). Hiking and biking trails were plentiful and well marked. Note, there is no swimming; the major body of water is a reservoir. - MichelleKry

Ditto PawPaw's comments. Electricity is available using the non-used circuit supplying site 10. Site 10 is the priority owner of either the 50 amp or 30 amp circuit and site 11 has use of the non-used circuit. Power pedestal for site 10 shows the 50 amp being used by site 10 and jointly used by site 11 for the 30 amp circuit. Additionally, it is doubtful that our site 11 would fit a unit requiring 50 amps there the 30 amp available suffices. The distance from site 11 to the power pedestal is approximately 35' so an appropriate extension may be needed. If you can stand 15 amps you're in business. However be prepared to make lemonade here and enjoy the views and short ferry ride to Boston.
P.S. #9 is most suitable for B or C model. No "A"s. # 10 & # 11 can handle any rig, however self level is helpful. - Bill - Ursula

As mentioned above - the location and view are incredible. Especially for the price.
Staff is focused on dealing with large day-use visitor population. Campground is not their specialty.
We were assigned a spot on the upper section. The spot was great for our longish TT, but the closed portions of the loop road made it a challenge to get the rig turned at a hard 90 degree angle to get into the spot. We had to have someone move the closure barriers before we could get into the spot.
(Loop road for campground is closed due to erosion causing cliff bulkhead to collapse).
It is a nice campground in an incredible location, but like many military CGs, suffers from lack of maintenance and priority compared to other MWR activities. - PawPaw

This is located at the end of a peninsula with a million-dollar view of the River and beaches of Scituate on the West and the Atlantic on the East. Geographically, it is half way between Plymouth and Boston. Utilities are good but the advertised cable connection requires a Cable Subscription. OTA picked up many Digital Channels, and we had good luck with our Tailgater antenna (set on the roof) picking up Dish.
Our complaint is Administration: The staff is friendly, but not knowledgeable when asked questions. They were not sure about any questions asked, and do not enforce Military ID requirements for day visitors, who clog the roads every day, even parking in spots clearly reserved for paying campers. Despite complaining to the manager twice (about the deplorable conditions of the bathrooms), only a token effort was made to clean things up, and obviously no follow-up was made.
Some of the perimeter road is closed and access to the Atlantic side is off limits due to beach erosion and collapsing of the cliffs. If checking in, stop at the side of the road just before the registration building to find out where you will be going, or you may be forced to back up with your toad (as I was). We would come back, and hopefully the administration will improve by the time we do. A plan is posted for eventual stabilization of the beaches, but time will tell if this will be accomplished. In fairness, it will be a large and expensive undertaking. - MoeStevens

This was a tough one to review. My rating reflects a comparison to other campgrounds which this is really not. It's a concert venue with some 200 plus seasonal sites and very few (I was told maybe as little as six) sites available for reservation. If you are there when there's not a concert, there's very little to offer by way of amenities/activities. They have a very nice pool and bathhouse and the facilities where clean. The camp store doubles as a gift shop/main entrance on show days and offers virtually nothing as far as supplies go. There is a gas station with a Food Mart adjacent to the property which you can walk to. It has everything (including Subway, Dunkin Donuts) just not a lot of camping supplies. When shows aren't going on you can wander around the venue and have access to a lakefront. They do charge something extra per person and require a $25 refundable deposit for the pool/bathhouse. If you're there for a concert weekend they require a 2 night minimum. They allow you to check out late on Sunday which is nice because they really pack them in. The venue is a great place to see performers up close and they have all the usual concessions. There's plenty of space to wander around and you can still hear the music down by the lakefront. The people who work there and the seasonals who stay there were all very friendly. But be forewarned it is a party atmosphere. Lot's of music and cocktails, and lots of circling around in golf carts. But again, I can't say enough about how friendly people were. - McNamara's Band

The sites are not level and there is no recreation during the week. There is a lake, but there is no recreation on it. I would not camp here again. - har-fl

This campground has a lot of seasonal sites. We stayed in the Nashville area in the front close to the office on huge concrete site that was 30x60. Water, electric and sewer was good. Wi-Fi was strong for access but did not connect to the internet. We have a sprint Aircard and used it instead. This campground caters more to people that want to attend concerts such as Billy Ray Cyrus or Keith Anderson who performed the weekend before we arrived and Charlie Daniels was scheduled to perform the following weekend. If you stay on a weekday, can get in the Nashville sites and have Camp Club USA it isn't a bad place to stay. We would only stay here for a couple of days when passing through. If you stay here say Hi to the gentleman who lives there and loves dogs more than people. - TXBobcat

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

This campground is fine as long as you know what you're getting into to. We chose to stay here for the convenience of exploring the town of Salem. It is a very quick drive to all the popular tourist destinations. We're a healthy family, and were able to walk a couple miles into town without trouble. You also had the option of taking the Salem trolley, which passes through the camp at regular intervals. So far as campgrounds go, this place is very unusual. It seemed to be staffed mostly by disinterested teenagers. They were friendly enough, but not particularly helpful. The place appears to be a former municipal park that was converted hastily into a "campground." Sites are extremely narrow. Ours was literally two former parking spaces with a picnic table. We did have fresh water and electric and a nice view of the harbor. However, it was very difficult to get parked in this tiny spot, because of a large building across from our place and the two adjacent campers. If you have a big camper, do not reserve 16d, 16c or 16b. I would not camp at Winter Island in a tent, because they only have two showers for the entire camp. The lone bathhouse was jam packed with people waiting for their turns. (This campground also shares its facilities with a public beach). Also of note, Winter Island does not have a dump station: For this you must go to the wastewater treatment plant down the road. We found it a challenge to get into the plant, because it requires a tricky u-turn and the road can be busy at times. One plus: Swimming at Waikiki beach, where our children found loads of sea glass. - Family0HappyCampers

If you own a dog, do not visit this park. There are at least two sets of pit bulls owned by permanent residents who attack other dogs regularly. I witnessed a severe attack and the owner of the victim dog was taken off his feet and injured while trying to defend his poor pet.
This is a relatively large campground with too many permanent residents. There are apparently no clutter limits at each site. At one site there was an old sofa parked outside as if it belonged. The roads are certainly accessible and most of the sites are level with adequate shade. Weekend activities load up the energy in the park for the kids. - LarryJohnston

We stayed here twice in summer/fall of 2014. First time for two months. Our site was very nice but in the middle of two roads. There are a lot of seasonal sites. Weekends and holidays were crazy busy. After Labor Day the place cleared out. We will definitely return as they are the best value the area. - Land roving

This place is okay if all you expect is a level place to park, decent water pressure and 50 amp service. WiFi is awful. If you do get it, it's super slow. You only have free access for 2 hours a day. There's pick up and delivery from the train station during the week. Very nice. Check in was chaotic. It was Labor Day weekend and the entrance was jammed. If you've got a big rig be careful upon entering between a large boulder on one side and the key gate on the other. No site escort. They should require the seasonal places to pressure wash and keep their places tidy. They are awful and gives the place a "hood" feel. I even saw a guy looking for bottles and cans in the dumpsters the first couple of days. Sites are grass, dirt and gravel. Roads are mainly dirt and gravel. The grass we do have needs mowing. An employee came out with a weed eater and cut a few weeds on the site next to us and left. The other sites and the dog area (about a foot tall in places) remained untouched. Tons of kids and roving teens while we were there. Cars parked everywhere. Some sites had 4 and 5 cars. Too crowded. The place did thin out after the holiday weekend and might be okay for a couple of days if you're just looking for a place to stay while visiting the city. Just don't expect too much. - AnnS

The staff was friendly and helpful and the campground was clean and neat. There appeared to be many things for the children to do. However, while this campground had many positive aspects, I would not stay here if you planned on a good night's sleep. We had loud parties late into the night on both sides of our camper, children playing and screaming at 11:30 at night-every night- and people cutting through our campsite-walking between our chairs- while we sat around the fire or at the table. There was incessant dog barking that never stopped, and loud music along with drumming-yes drumming- late at night from the cabins across the street. Could not wait to get out of there! - Charlie K

First visit and off season but we enjoyed the campground, glad we went. We were in the back section and our site was ok but it could have been a bit larger, had to park the truck in at tough angle. The hook ups all were fine and the neighbors were very friendly. It was somewhat busy for being later in October. The front section had lots of activities with many kids enjoying the bouncy pillow and playground. As we walked there are some really nice sites with plenty of room and some others that are just small. For some with lower trailers, the sewer hook up could be a bit uphill which would be an issue. All in all we are glad we went and will keep it in mind for future trips. - Happy Camper X2

We stayed here twice while attending family events (and visiting Maine in between). The park itself is very nice. Lots of woods & shade. Lots of kids, but still relatively quiet. An enjoyable place to stay. Both times we stayed in the wooded area at the far back area of the campground.
However, I 'd suggest you check your site before settling in. At our first site, the sewer connection was UPHILL from where the RV could be parked, making it unusable (since, you know, stuff doesn't flow uphill). During our second visit, there was no way we could level the RV ... there was just too much slope on the site. The motorhomes on either side of us were jack up so high that both front wheels were completely off the ground. Ours were, too, but there was still a distinct down angle toward the front of the coach. Enough to be noticeable. Next time we visit we'll stay in another part of the campground where the sites looked to be more level. - VA-Parrothead

We really enjoyed being in pine trees with natural grass/dirt campsite again. Our site had electric & water & we were able to schedule a holding tank pump out mid week for an extra $20. This was a great place for sightseeing - Old Plymouth, Boston & Cape Cod all close. - licensedtochill

This campground is huge! There is a good mix of long term/seasonal and weekend/temporary campers. We were here over the July 4 weekend, and it was obvious this was the place for families to get away, and probably even some family reunions. There were tons of kids, not surprising since there is a lot to keep them entertained, but it could be loud at times. There were several scheduled events - a dance and a band while we were there, but we didn't attend. Our site was the most unlevel site we've ever been in. A good size, but still tight based on how were had to park and one random tree. Showers were reasonably clean, but did not feel very private, so we didn't use them. Overall, not a bad campground, just more "action" that we tend to like. - wanderfilledlife

Pinewood is a great place to stay while day tripping to the various attractions in the area, including whale watching visiting the Plimoth Plantation (yes, that's the correct spelling), etc. The campground is clean and well kept, with the maintenance staff continually on the move as they clean vacated sites, mow, and clean the restrooms. There is a nice swimming beach on the adjacent small lake, and fishing is allowed nearby. The sites a packed sand, and our full hookup pull-thru site was very level and spacious. The many tall pine trees made satellite reception a challenge, but doable. The power, cable, water, and sewer connections were centrally located, and easy to reach. There were numerous children playing during the day, but the campground was very quiet at night. There is a gun range and municipal airport nearby with occasional noises from both, but only during the day. Pine pollen and tree caterpillars were abundant while we were there, but both are just seasonal and beyond the control of the management of course. The Verizon cell signal was on the weak side but usable, and with our Maximum Signal amplifier turned on, data speeds were very good. The campground WiFi service is free for the first hour, but fairly slow especially in the evenings. We really enjoyed our stay here, and will return again in the future. - NYDutch

Let me start by saying that this campground has tremendous potential. The grounds are very nice, mostly wooded and includes several ponds. Another nice feature is the bar that is located on-site that includes live entertainment on weekends. Now the negatives. The staff members that we came across during our stay were very rude! I think campground employee's sometimes forget that the campers are the campground's customers and without them they wouldn't have jobs. We found the sites to be very small and extremely close together. Upon setting up our travel trailer once we opened the awning there were literally tent stakes from the tents in the site next to ours under our awning. I'm sure there are better sites within the campground however they are few and far between. Last but not least ten dollars per person for friends/family to visit the campground is ridiculous. I would not recommend this campground and I won't be back. Stay away! - Mikeynas

This was a typical campground where the teenagers get very loud at night around the basket ball courts until 11 pm or 12 am. The sites are not very big at all. - v245059

This campground is not a place to take your family. It seems most people bring their kids here so they don't have to watch them. Teenage kids are walking around all hours of the night screaming and swearing. Seasonal sites are very run down. The "swimming hole" looks like something from an industrial park. The store was no bigger than our camper. There doesn't seem to be any rules either. People were setting off fire works from their sites at all hours. People at the camp site behind us were using campsite to take off tires, so we got to listen to an impact wrench and stare at a stack of tires. This is not what we were looking for in a vacation. It was more like being in the middle of a city. - caly

This campground is very clean and well kept; the staff are very friendly and helpful. The restrooms and showers are clean. It's very peaceful. There are plenty of choices for sunny or shady sites. There are a lot of amenities, including a large dog park. They are very dog friendly. We took advantage of their dog potty break service; at $10 per potty break for both dogs, we used it twice in 1 day while we did the Freedom Trail and a Red Sox game. We felt $20 was a reasonable price to take our dogs on 2 potty breaks and feed them. The sites are spacious and level with either gravel or concrete pads. Each site has a picnic table and fire ring. The WiFi was decent at our site. The only downsides are fires are only permitted between 6pm and midnight; and they are very expensive. Prices include 2 adults; the kids are $5 each per night. There is not much choice in the Boston area, and we were reluctant to pay this much after a poor experience last summer with an expensive campground. Even though it was very expensive for us and we don't need all of the amenities they offer, we would stay here again if we're ever back in the area. - Ursula A

Campground is large with 4 pools (1 indoor) & multiple laundries. Laundry was clean with multiple machines but a little costly; $3 to wash. There is an assortment of campsites ranging from pop ups to upscale class A's. They rent pop ups & cabins. There is a gate with a code to get in & out. There is a decent size store. There is even a concierge. They have a snack bar with a large menu. It is about 30 miles from Boston, mass transit is available. Cable & decent WiFi. We got satellite signal also. - Connie's Co-Owner

Lots for the kids to do. Scheduled games, activities, bike park, 18 hole Frisbee golf, bocce courts, sand volleyball, gaga ball, fishing lake, baseball fields, this campground has about every amenity I can think of except for mini golf and tennis! There is a cafe with a large menu, they even have treats for dogs! One of our favorite parts of the park was the HUGE dog park!
I would recommend this park for families and people travelling with pets to get the best value. This is one of our favorite campgrounds in the country. Our only negative would be unpaved roads. - 4RollingGs
