Clean, fun vibe, great beach access, close to the arcades. No sewer but 4 dump stations (long lines on Sunday check out days). No frills. We camped at Salisbury Beach State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Salisbury Beach State Reservation, Salisbury, MA Site F047 Out of state fee $50 This was a two night stay on our way home from camping in Maine this fall. The Merrimack River is on one side of the campground and the Atlantic Ocean on the other. There are 484 campsites with w & e, comfort stations and a playground. Boardwalks and paths are all around for birdwatching, beach going and just taking a walk. Two boat ramps are near the river and there also swimming & fishing. This park has 3.8 miles along the Atlantic Ocean with a nice sandy beach and the western area is bordered by areas of salt marsh. Birds and harbor seals can be seen near the jetty. The bathhouses do have showers. There is a big playground near the beach. This is a huge campground and fills up on the weekends in the fall as well as most of the summer. It is like a parking lot but every site has a firepit, picnic table, some grass and many sites have a tree. We have not stayed at this campground in years and were worried about some reviews talking about equipment going missing. This did not happen when we were there. It seems that those going through to the beach drive through parts of the campground and stuff has been stolen. We talked to another couple from Ohio that stayed here for two weeks while they toured parts of southern Maine along the coastline. They did not have any problems either. Just lock up everything. The campground is also pet friendly with dog bag stations and they are allowed on the beach. It was a nice stay for us and we met some great campers that just love camping here. We could look out from our site and see the sunrise over the river and it was a short walk to the beach. We camped at Salisbury Beach State Park in a Motorhome.

Theft of property is apparently common. While we were there campers posted at restrooms what was stolen and then of course, it happened to us. Do not leave your site unattended for a moment. Sleep in shifts or lock every thing up. We thought the park was nice and the beach etc., but not if you can't leave your site. If you own anything that you care about, do not bring to this park. Donate it somewhere else. We have never had this problem before... We camped at Salisbury Beach State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Yes its a parking lot. Not a wooded camping experience. I did not think I would like it but was pleasantly surprised. The location says it all - it's at the beach. Very clean good water and electric. Bring extra cords and hose. The state police who come thru on horse back are very friendly. Just a great spot. Good job, Massachusetts. We camped at Salisbury Beach State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Check in was easy, they had a pleasant gentleman stationed at the entrance directing us in the dark. Finding our site was easy as the rows are lettered and sites clearly numbered. Considering this is a State beach campground we thought there was good space between sites. Sites were level and had concrete pads with paved driveway. Sand/grass around the pad with a fire ring and picnic table at each site. Walking distance to the beach and river from any site. Lots of people had their bikes. The campground was busy but pretty quiet. Dogs are allowed on river beach and off-season on the ocean beach. Bathhouses were older but clean. The store sold wood and some incidentals. Great, great, great location, can't wait to go back! We camped at Salisbury Beach State Park in a Travel Trailer.

W/E hookups are a ways away from RV, needed 50' of water hose and all 35' of power cord. Pad and driveway level. Park was clean and staff was efficient and friendly. There are no sewer hookups, but the dumping station has been completely remodeled, and there are now four dump units that are well designed with plenty of room. We camped at Salisbury Beach State Park in a Motorhome.

Excellent W/E hookups. Pad and driveway required very little to level. Park was clean and staff was efficient and friendly. There are no sewer hookups in the park, but the dumping station has been completely remodeled. There are now four dump units that are well designed with plenty of room and new pavement. A new bath/toilet facility is being constructed in the small camper/tenting area. We camped at Salisbury Beach State Park in a Motorhome.

Salisbury Beach is a campsite located on a coastal plain so there is little shade. Sites are standard with water and electric, but no sewage. Many campers use "blue tanks" to empty their camper tanks. Each site has a level concrete pad, but you need to bring an additional 30 amp cord to reach the electrical service. At least 50 ft of hose is necessary. The water has a fairly high salt content so you may like to bring supplemental water for drinking, coffee, etc. It was very windy so everything needs to be tied down. The river and ocean are beautiful, but the water was very cold in July. The State Police does not tolerate any rule breaking as a camper was escorted off the property for using fireworks within the hour. It is a super deal considering motels and beach houses go for considerably more money. We camped at Salisbury Beach State Park in a Travel Trailer.

This is a huge park with 481 sites with water and electric, which are mostly 30 amp, but there are some 50 amp sprinkled around. There is a dump station on site. The sites are paved as are the roads. Each site has paved patio attached as well. If you come here, bring lots of water hose, at least 50' and maybe an extension for your electric cord. All of the utilities are lined up in a row at the very back of the sites, and separate the rows. As such the water pressure is pretty low, so you may have to fill the water tank on the rig and use your on board water pump to get a good shower. The beach is nice, and there is access to a bay area where dogs are allowed on leash, and the beach area as well if it after 5 PM. There is a small store/concession stand in the middle of the park that has a few camping necessities. There are no-see-ums here, which I learned early the second morning as we were outside working out. There is a lot of extra parking around the beach as it is a public access beach. That also means a lot of folks walking around the beach and campground area, so make sure that your stuff is secured when you are away for a length of time. If you are into boating there is also a public boat ramp connected to the campground. The location is pretty much in town, so trips to pick of supplies is fairly easy. We paid $33 a night for the park, which isn't too bad for a campground by the beach. There are no real water views, but the beach is only a few minutes walk from your campsite. We did get Verizon signal at the campsite for the WiFi, but the antenna tower was across the bay, so signal could be a bit sketchy depending on the time of day. The restrooms are handicapped accessible, but they are a bit on the old side. We camped next to a gentleman who camp hosts at the park. There are several camp hosts, which stay from 1 to 4 weeks at a time. Since none of the sites have sewer, there is a honey wagon that will come around to pump you out for $15 if you desire. We camped at Salisbury Beach State Park in a Motorhome.

Beautiful park. Gorgeous beaches, lots of walking trails, nice clean facilities and a store. The sites are gravel, level and kind of spare. Gnarly trees at some sites. But if you like the beach, this is a great place. We have Verizon and the cell phone signal was great. Also got great TV (35 channels, excellent reception) with an over the air antenna. Wish we could have stayed longer - it was a great place. We camped at Salisbury Beach State Park in a Motorhome.

We booked through Reserve America and price includes the $8.65 reservation fee. It's a nice park, nothing fancy but is a great location for the beach. A mix of 50 & 30 amp and tent camping. We could only get 30 amp and all sites are back in. No wifi or cable TV but good reception for TV on antenna. No sewer hook up although there are very accessible dump stations. Be aware that on busy mornings there is a queue for the dump stations. The roads are tarmac and sites concrete and mainly level although quite short. Not suitable for rigs over 40 ft. Fire rings and good condition picnic tables. They have a very good recycling area. We camped at Salisbury Beach State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Very nice State Park. Back into your site and you are level side to side. The campground is somewhat like parking lot camping but there are quite a few trees through out of course the ocean is right there. The Merrimack River is also right there as this is where it empties. Lots of nice views and picture opportunities.The sound of the ocean and waves breaking can be heard at night when things quiet down.Have been several times and will continue to camp there. We camped at Salisbury Beach State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Our site was level and open. Relatively easy to get in and out because we were behind a bathhouse and camp store. Only had 20 amp hookup but we made it work with a little juggling. Easy walking distance to beach. Campground very large and busy but well patrolled with friendly camp hosts. It was quiet, especially considering there are almost 500 sites.

With the direct access to two beaches and the cost per night is why we keep choosing this campground. Our W/E hookups were in good working order. No sewer available at campground. Typical beach area camping, place flat with little shade. Camp sites are grid style and on the small side. Bathrooms and showers were just okay. No Wi-Fi, but good signal on our Verizon cell phone. Campground offers two beaches, kayaking and fishing. Careful, many of the sites have manhole covers and sharp drop from the site asphalt which are trip hazards. We would return again.
