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. We camped at Wompatuck State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

The park is beautiful and peaceful with grassy as well as wooded areas. The sites are spaced well apart and are somewhat secluded. There are miles of walking, hiking, and biking trails. The staff was friendly and welcoming. We would stay here again We camped at Wompatuck State Park in a Travel Trailer.

This is a top notch campground. I can't say enough good about them. Even the restrooms are extra nice. The sites are all really level. There's only electric but there's water on every road, so easy to fill up. It's really clean water. I can't wait to camp here again. We camped at Wompatuck State Park in a Motorhome.

They aren't suppose to have water hook-ups but they didn't say anything to someone in a motor home that hooked their water hose up to the community water. The motor home must have had a hose that was at least 75 feet long, but they got away with it. No one ever seemed to be at the gate so you could just drive into the campground and camp anywhere that was open. The quite hours were not enforced. Our bathhouse was broken so we had to drive to another one, and some campsites had 3-4 cars at them to where they were half way on the road and it was hard to get by them. The sites were big and nice. They all had fire-pits and plenty of room and privacy. I'm not sure if we would go back just because that park seems to draw the type of people that don't respect rules or campground property. We camped at Wompatuck State Park in a Tent Trailer.

The place was dirty, site had 12 pieces of trash on it when we pulled in. The grass had not been mowed in quite some time. The bathrooms were disgusting the first day but, cleaned to just filthy for the rest of the week. No way I would shower in one of those stalls. The people hired to clean them should be ashamed of themselves. It's not all bad: the sites are level and pretty well spread out. We camped at Wompatuck State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed in the loop with electric on the sites. Restrooms were in need of being remodeled as they are old, but were being well maintained. Some sites are small and may not fit all size RV's. Most sites are wooded and will have a good amount of shade throughout the day. We would stay here again. We camped at Wompatuck State Park in a Travel Trailer.

This place COULD be so nice: but it is not! The bathrooms have a card that is signed each day by someone that allegedly cleans them, this is a hoax. One shower did not even have a curtain, and one toilet had the same grunge (bad stuff) in the bowl all three days we were here. If you consider taking a shower, wear shoes, the floor is disgusting! The check in was nice, and the site was great and very private. This is also one of the first places I have been that does NOT have a water hose at the dump station. It is a shame to see such a beautiful park with so much potential in this condition. Not sure who dropped the ball. We camped at Wompatuck State Park in a Truck Camper.

Nice, quiet state park just outside of Boston. Two areas of campground, one area has no hookups at all, the other only has electricity (20 amp only), no sewer hookups. They do have a dump station. There are water spigots throughout the campground, so before you set up, you can fill your freshwater holding tank. When making reservations, it may be a better idea to call the park rather than use Reserve America, as not all the sites are the same size. Some are very narrow, while others are more spacious. Nearly all sites are very shaded. There are miles upon miles of hiking/biking trails throughout the park. The restrooms were fairly modern and nice and clean. There is also a natural spring nearby with nice cold, fresh water. The park was very empty , though we only stayed during the week. They evacuated the park for Hurricane Irene, and refunded the money automatically for the night that were reserved, but not used. All around a good campground, and we would definitely stay here again if in the area. We camped at Wompatuck State Park in a Tent Trailer.

This is a beautiful park. This is an old park with narrow roads and some low branches. We found several sites that would easily fit our 40' motorhome and toad. Shower water was warm at best and with little pressure. Bathrooms and showers were clean but old and need to be updated. We could not find a ranger to check in for about an hour. He was friendly but it was disorganized. Note there is only 20 amp service. I would stay here again. We camped at Wompatuck State Park in a Motorhome.

We stayed here over Memorial Day weekend. The park was pretty nice. Staff was friendly and fairly helpful. My wife used the showers and said they were cold and no-so-clean, men's room looked fairly clean. There wasn't a lot for kids to do (I didn't see a playground anywhere) so they rode their bikes a lot. Our site was pretty narrow with a lot of branches and brush hanging into the site. There was a small brook behind our site so the bugs were out in FULL force. (Don't forget to bring LOTS of bug spray.) The firewood I bought at the office was wet so I ended up burning the abundance of dead branches and brush I found on our site. Our site was missing the picnic table and when I asked at the office about it, I was told that their supplier shorted them. He said he'd try to find one for me but one never showed up (even though I saw several sites with more than one table) so I had to use my grill on my tailgate. This park is about 15 minutes from a 'T' station if you want to go to Boston. No enforcement of parking/driving rules(multiple cars on sites clogging the roads, people speeding and going the wrong way around one-way loops). I was surprised that it was very quiet in the evenings for a holiday weekend in a full park. With a little bit of cleaning and some site maintenance this could be a great park. We camped at Wompatuck State Park in a Travel Trailer.

We stayed here 6 nights while visiting Boston, Cape Cod, and Salem. For us it was perfect and so much more reasonable than near by RV parks whose rates reflected services we didn't need. Our site was large, 99% shade, so level we didn't need jacks, and we only had neighbors on either side on the weekend, and they were very respectful of quiet hours. We used the red line subway station in Braintree to get to/from Boston. The campground office has information on its location, parking, etc. We also used the laundromat in Hingham and found it very nice although slightly high in cost. WiFi was available at the library in Hingham. The downside is only 20A service, but even though it was 90 in Boston, our site was so shady it never got over 85 in the RV. We used a table top fan inside and it kept us very comfortable. At night the temps dropped significantly and the fan ran all night. The staff in the office was very friendly and helpful. We were given a map with circled suggested sites for our 33' motorhome and the list was very appropriate. We would definitely stay here again. We camped at Wompatuck State Park in a Motorhome.

Our first visit to this state park and we were impressed. There are miles after miles of paths and unused paved roads to ride bikes on. You can fill up your water bottle at the spring and hit the road. The electric hook-up sites are a little out dated and I wondered if it was going to work, but it did. Staff was friendly and we had a great time. I would go back again but in the off season when it won't be hot in the camper. Electric is not able to run the AC.

We liked this state park, but my problem with the state park, as well is others, is that the summer employees do not understand that a motor home needs a fairly level site. Reserve America only wants to know the type vehicle and # of feet. They also don't seem to have a clue about whether the sites are level. Trailers and 5th wheels can deal with unlevel sites because their tires are closer together. We camped at Wompatuck State Park in a Motorhome.

We have never camped here before. Very interesting – beautiful park. Nice drive through historic Hingham with beautiful old houses to get to the park. Close to Boston (35 minutes away) so that you can drive to the nearest T-station or take the ferry over to Boston and that is what many campers do that stay here. Plymouth is also a short drive down route 3 from here so one can visit many of the Pilgrim tourist attractions. There are two camping sections in this park (262 sites and 140 with electric), one with electric hookups and one without. It looked like sections of the non electric section did not even open this year maybe due to economic reason. Most of the state parks in MA need to remodel their bathrooms and repave their roads and even bike trails. Bike trails and hiking trails run through the park (12 miles of bike trails alone), plus one can bike on old military roads left when the military left this park to the state. Nice ride, beautiful views, ponds and some great birding. Make sure one picks up the trail guide though at the entrance to the camping area because you can get very confused. Mt. Blue Spring is in the park and from the campground one can walk, drive, or bike to the spring to fill out your water bottles or containers for some nice fresh spring water for free. Make sure you check closing dates for any campgrounds in New England because most close at the end of Columbus Day weekend. We camped at Wompatuck State Park in a Motorhome.

The park itself is wonderful - beautiful, quiet, clean and great rails to trail bike paths. The campsite was nice as well - very large and flat, lots of privacy from surrounding foliage. We were right by the fresh water, so we were able to fill up our tanks before settling into our site. There is a dump station in the park as well. The only down side of this park, and hence the 6 rating, was the bathroom. They were not clean and I feel pretty certain that they were never cleaned the entire time we stayed (about 5 nights). One of the showers had hardly any water pressure, the other shower was clogged up, and the middle shower was the best that they had. My husband said the men's showers were just as awful. So, if you are not using the showers this is a great park. The city of Hingham is very cute, you are within 4 miles of a great grocery store and the cleanest laundromat I have ever done clothes at in my life in downtown Hingham. We camped at Wompatuck State Park in a Travel Trailer.
