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

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

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

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

This park was one of the best we've stayed at. They have rows of seasonal campsites, some of which could use cleaning up, but if you stay in the area of the day campers, you will be fine. We had full hookups with 50 amp, and the spaces were very wide on both sides. The area has large trees, and it is a great camping experience. The staff is super-friendly and accommodating. They have a higher daily rate over the weekend (Fri-Sun). We could not get satellite TV because of the trees, but we were able to get 24 over-the-air channels, so we could keep up with the news and some of our favorite shows on network TV. They do offer Wi-Fi, and once connected, is fairly fast. It is close to Plymouth, and Boston is 1 hour away. - Ferdy

This is a gated campground with grass and dirt back-in sites that are plenty big enough for slides and awnings. The utilities at our FHU site worked well and we had good Wi-Fi and were able to pickup a few OTA channels. They have lots of activities for kids and a big playground. It was easy to get in and out of the park as was our site. Our only complaint was the barking dogs, the worst we have experienced in almost 4 years of full-timing. The park host warned them a couple of times but it didn't help much. I don't believe it is a regular issue, just a few campers that didn't care what others thought. The host are very friendly. We would stay here again. - dandg

Mostly seasonal campground with plenty of space available for daily/weekly/monthly campers as well. Friendly, welcoming owners are on-site, so any problems are taken care of immediately. Lots of activities for adults and children. Large, shady spaces, swimming & wading pools, rec hall for the many group activities offered, free fishing on private pond with no license required. Easy access to highways to visit tourist areas/attractions. - BootsScoochnBoogie

First time visitors to this campground. We were in the Charge Pond area A and half of the other areas were closed. I don't know if they open up more as the season picks up. The beach area at Charge Pond was nice. The water was clear, there was good fishing, and it wasn't busy at all. The campground was clean with sandy sites and that near the ocean kind of feel. There is about 20 feet of forest between each site. The kids enjoyed riding their bikes on the paved bike paths. Make sure you have a map and pre-plan your trip as it can get confusing without one. We were hoping to climb the fire tower but it was locked up. We would go back again, but it's kind of a long drive. Oh, the bathroom had a door that was left open but it didn't matter because there wasn't a screen on it. - B. P. Donelan

We camped here on a weekend where all sites were full, but found the Barrett's Pond area very quiet. Our site (J11) was small but level. Backing in was tricky due to a small incline, but I was able to do it on the first try. After exploring the park, I realized that there was only a handful of sites that were level enough for a travel trailer, and we clearly had the largest TT in the park. Park is more suited to pop-ups and tents. Firewood cannot be taken in or out of Massachusetts parks due to the ALH beetle, but firewood is reasonably priced. Bike paths made this dry camping experience worth it. 15 miles of paved paths; however, they are very hilly, and would be difficult for small children to pedal on their own. The College Pond swimming area is nice and has a small sandy beach and a place for renting kayaks/canoes. The weekend we were there, we arrived at 10AM and people had already begun placing belongings on all the picnic tables in the park. Guests can use the lake on a day pass, so there were many very large groups playing music and cooking all around us. The water was nice and the experience would have been better if it had been limited to camping patrons only. - Craig family

This is a great campground when you want to get back to nature. There are no electric sites and water is a very short walk. You are truly in a forest. There are many ponds to take a swim in, too. We have spent 2 different weekends there and have always had a good time. - User961

This is an old campground that's certainly seen better days. if you want quiet, it certainly is that. We were assigned site 14, so when you leave the office, you must pull your RV up a VERY steep hill (at least a 15% grade) to get to your site. Our site was a back in, and was pretty out of level and also dropped a great deal in the rear, so the front of the RV was nearly on the ground.. No cable connection, and satellite would be impossible with all the trees, so we tried the digital antenna. Picked up a total of 5 stations, no major stations, and of course, 3 shopping stations, clear as a bell! There are many permanent RVs and mobile homes set up, most of which are nicely groomed. It appeared that we were the only overnighters around, which surprised us at this time of year. The location is about 10 miles south of Plymouth, where there is a great Pilgrim Museum and Plymouth Rock, and a nice shopping and restaurant area. Just an OK park for a few nights. - AlaskaJack

Because there are no full hookup sites I figured the single Dump Station would probably be a Zoo in the morning so thought I would Dump on the way in instead of on the way out. Was told that would cost me $20! (extra). Bizarre and definitely NOT Customer friendly. Unsurprisingly the bathroom was in poor repair (no functioning locks on stalls, toilets loose on the floor) and fairly Filthy. We will assuredly NOT return here. - geysergazer

This campground is nice and woodsy and quiet. The television reception isn't very good because of all the trees. There is only a gray water drain at the site. The office staff is extremely nice and helpful. We would definitely come back here. - LarryJohnston

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
