The campground is well situated. We parked our RV in the campground and biked to ferry boat (35 min). We took the ferry to Boston ($37 for 2, go and back).
The campground is not very clean. No water on sites and 20 amp electricity.
The showers and bathroom and terribly dirty. It is the second time we have been here and still dirty.
No facilities (laundry etc). - Galaf25

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

We spent a week here in their "new" area at the crest of the hill. This used to be their overflow area but has been improved to full hookup. The views from Site #15 are spectacular! No shade but wonderful breezes and clear, clean satellite reception. Quiet, well landscaped area, very pleasant staff, and handy laundry facilities. Great location to get in to Boston, Plymouth, or Foxboro with no hassle on Hwy 3A. We stayed here in a Class A 40ft Motorhome and will definitely return. - Steve & Linda

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 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

This is like 2 different campgrounds. Last year we were in the back section which was fine but away from everything. This trip we were in a backin site in the front section. We were right in the middle of the activities. Since our grandson was with us this worked out great. We were near the jumping pad, ice cream social, train rides, mini golf and pool. Our location made it real nice. Wifi was good as were the hook ups with great water pressure. We found the campground to be extremely quiet and enjoyable. Staff was great and friendly but could do a little better cleaning sites as our fire pit had trash in it when we arrived. Unfortunately for us it is bee season and they swarmed the site when ever we were going to eat or someone opened a soda. We had to eat a few meals inside to get away from them. This is a nice campground for a quick getaway. - Happy Camper X2

We stayed here for 4 nights visiting family in Taunton and touring Historic Plymouth. Quite a large campground. Our site was very spacious and in a nice part of the campground. We had a private patio, with table and chairs plus our own swing (glider). Although we only have 30 amp, the site was equipped with 50 amp. Water, sewer, wifi and cable included. We would stay here again. - Jack 1939

We didn't spend much time at the park, but we have been here before and nothing has changed. Got a back-in spot right by the bathhouse. Surprising, things were pretty quiet, so no real noise complaints from us. We were in town for a family event, and this campground is centrally located for that. Easy enough, also, to get into Boston for a Red Sox game (which we did), or down to Bourne (entrance to Cape Cod) for some lobster (quite excellent, by the way, and reasonably priced -- two 1-1/4 pounders for $32). This KOA is well-maintained and staff is exceedingly friendly. Makes everyone feel right at home. I recommend this campground and will stay here anytime I'm in the Boston/Cape Cod area. - VA-Parrothead

The park was pretty tight and we didn't get to see or use the whole park because we travel with our dogs and half of it is closed off if you have dogs. On this trip we had 2 other adults staying with us and they charged us an extra $40 a night ($20 for each adult). This was a bit much but it was on their website and I must of missed it when I booked us. - AudiG

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

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

Normandy Farms is an exceptional camping resort! It is very easy to get to, right off the highway (495) with gas/coffee close by.
I have stayed here in August for three years with a family that has been coming here for many, many years. Each year we have a group of 16 people (and 3 small dogs) spread over four adjacent sites. I have four children ranging in age from 8 to 20 years old, and all anxiously look forward to this trip each year.
The entire facility is geared towards the family, with CONSTANT activities. If you are looking for a quiet, private campground, this may not be ideal - kids are everywhere (what we wanted). That being said, they enforce quiet-time and make sure fires are out by midnight. The sites are very large, pull-thru and easily accommodate larger trailers and motor-homes. Lots of room both L&W to fit trucks. We turn our pop-ups sideways! Fire-rings/picnic tables at each site. Some sites have cement pads. The roads are not paved, so some dust. They water down the main road throughout the day to keep the dust down.
The facilities are truly exceptional. Numerous large, clean bathrooms/showers; laundry rooms; play grounds, gaming fields and places to play; huge bike park; huge dog park; nice 18 hole disc golf; 4 pools, with one pool indoor. A large pond for fishing, huge rec-hall with kids/adult loft areas, an arcade and so much more. The snack-bar is very good with prices slightly above average.
We have done many of the activities: candy-bar bingo; pay bingo; dodge-ball; softball; nature walk; scavenger hunt; shuffle board; Teddy Town (Build-A-Bear); ceramics (favorite).
Within a few miles: Patriot place with tons of stores & Bass Pro (favorite), Wrentham Outlets (outdoor), Emerald Square Mall.
If you are coming without children or don't plan to use pools/activities, then you are paying a premium; otherwise it is very fair. We joke and call this "the DW of camp resorts", and I HAVE BEEN to Fort Wilderness! - SHerzig

First time staying at Normandy Farms; stayed their with a few other camping friends. Campground is immaculately maintained; very nicely landscaped and has many things to offer. Enough pools throughout the campground, so even on the hottest day they were never overcrowded. Verizon cell signal was marginal at best; campground cable had quite a large channel offering and was clear signal. Site D1 was a very nice pull thru site that had tons of room lengthwise (able to park our Jeep Wrangler Unlimited, Motorhome and a Chevy Suburban on the site) and very level. Campground was very close to Patriot Place; and not too far from Boston for a few day trips to site see. Tons of kids activities throughout our stay. Camp store was a bit out of the way from the main camping area, but was manageable. - SJEAGLES609

We had a wonderful time hiking around the well marked trails and swimming in the lake. The sites varied in level but were fine for our little travel trailer. There was enough to do without leaving the campground for simple bike riding, hiking, and swimming. It is really nicely located for day trips to Plymouth and Cape Cod. Park Rangers were visable making the campground safer for the single camper. I would recommend this State Park to anyone for a simple trip or group rally. - sleepless
