This is exactly what I look for in a state park campground; roomy sites with good separation, clean, quiet, and peaceful. - affreeman

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

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 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

We had a group of 4 rigs in the Pull Through, PT 14- PT23 section. These sites are larger than most of the rest and we had good satellite service. We had no problem with large dogs and the owner told us the person that had the pit bulls (see prior review) was not a permanent or seasonal. The park is large and has a large number of campers. We used the limo to and from the train station and they never failed to pick us up. We would return IF we could get a site in that section. Most of the other sites are too small for a 40' rig and are surrounded by many trees. We had good 50 amp service. - johnwadams

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 KOA chooses not to enforce its own rules. I contacted management, and they were nothing but apologists for the bad behavior of the known rule breakers. Plan on being woken from sleep many times at night, due to Harley riders revving their hogs, then speeding through the park at night, even after the 11 PM "quiet hours" cutoff. I was told that if these individuals were excluded "all I'd have left is a bunch of Priuses and tents." I was told that 20-25 campers have Harleys every year on Labor Day weekend, so nothing will be done. Everyone deserves to enjoy their camping experience, but not at the expense of others. There are plenty of parks in this area. Pick one where your peaceful enjoyment is a priority. - Pdx discovery

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

Busy campground. Large sites, albeit muddy when it rains. Friendly staff. Friends staying in cabin were disappointed with small size odor. Wifi very slow. - Maltaman

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

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

We loved our October stay at Normandy Farms for "Spirit's weekend"! We have camped here a number of times over the years and always have a blast. It is pricey but well worth it. The kids, 10 and 8yrs, always meet new friends and play all day long. They love the Gaga ball and the bike park. We highly recommend the halloween weekends! We have many memories here are are so grateful to Normandy Farms. We stayed for the Taylor Swift concert last summer and will remember that forever. All the sites are great and the grounds are impeccable. Patriots place is great to visit even when there are no events happening. Highly recommended! - Howls_Castle

A quiet, heavily wooded campground. The road (MA 1) to campground requires a lot of caution for a big rig - trees inadequately trimmed, narrow, winding, and potholes. Interior roads are asphalt and gravel with adequate width. Sites are mostly level gravel and long.
Power ok, did not use other utilities. T-Mobile 1-2 bars LTE with reasonable speed; Verizon 3 bars LTE with reasonable speed: campground wifi ok signal strength with good speed but campground was less than half full. Satellite access problematic due to the number of trees. Full single stream recycle on site. Ok road bike riding in campground, no road bike trails adjacent to campground.
We would stay here again when in the area (for an overnight or a longer stay). - SeaLandSkyPhoto

This is THE park to stay at in the Boston area. The sites are gravel with a concrete porch, and very roomy. Laundry facilities are very clean with front load washers and large dryers. This park is packed with amenities. It is a well run park, staff are very nice and helpful. Weekends are very busy here, and the park is usually full with lots of activities available for everyone. They can accommodate any size rig that you have, and even have a beautiful area for tent camping. Pets are allowed, no size limit, and must be kept on a leash. There is even a dog park for their enjoyment! We camped here from September to October in a 35 ft. travel trailer. - MGR58

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
