We have been here 2 weeks and it has been outstanding. We are in site #10 - our back window is backed up to the Atlantic (about 10 feet from the edge of a cliff that drops off to the beach) while the front end faces the inlet to the marinas. With no one parked in #9 we have a 270 degree view. 180 if someone was in #9. It is spectacular. This location has remnants of WWII. There is an old observation tower that must have been used for sighting ships that could be a threat to the coast. There is also what appears to be an ammunition bunker. The concrete slabs are old and broken and cracked - all left over from days gone by. There has been a huge amount of beach erosion that got too close to the RV sites on the point and they had to stop using 3 of them. However there are some sites down there that are smaller and used for smaller RV's. The sites here, 9, 10 & 11 are fine for 40 + feet. There is also beach erosion here, but so far it does not threaten the RV sites. The water & sewer hook ups are on the wrong side of the RV and you have to cross them under the unit. Electric is at the rear. All utilities work fine. Our Verizon signal is good and we used hotspot. There is Wifi, but I wouldn't bother. Too slow. No cable, but wide open sky for satellite dish. The area - the town - is beautiful. If you like the look of 'New England' you'll have it spades here. The houses that line the beach are beautiful and when you cross the bridge there is a couple of restaurants. The Bridgewaye Inn is very good!!. The town of Marshfield has about anything you need in the way of groceries, restaurants etc. Hanover has a Walmart (not 'super'). Plymouth is a short distance (about 30 minutes) and a pretty town to visit. If you want to visit Boston, don't make the mistake we did. We drove in. Big mistake! There is a ferry that runs from Scituate straight to the Boston wharf. That's the way to do it. We would come here again and again. - jomark

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

260 site campground with about half with 20 amp electric service. Water spigots throughout. Sites are wooded with mostly hardwood mature trees. There is at least 100 feet between sites. Large sites, couldn't hear neighbors conversations. Loop M backs up to woods so no one behind us. The bathroom was decent for a State Park with 3 shower stalls. The roads are one way smooth and well paved. 12 miles of trails for biking or walking. Fishing and canoeing available. Geocaching in the park. Each site has fire ring and picnic table. Buy your wood when you check it, the campsites are about a mile in. The dump station is conveniently located as you leave. The park is over 3500 acres. The spring house for Mt. Blue spring is down the road to the left going in, to the right leaving. Lots of people come here with gallon bottles getting fresh spring water. - SueBee22

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

I see a lot of nice reviews here, but here is our review. There is a $5 surcharge to book online. It is listed on-line, but they charge $5 per night for your pet and there are no dog parks or dog runs. The campground is unkempt. We checked in after the required time, but our campsite had not been mowed. The brush was at least a foot tall. After contacting them twice to take care of it, and keeping our area cleared for them, they came 24 hours later and still looked terrible. We specifically requested site number 9 because it was Lakefront view. You cannot see the lake through all the brush. The campsite can't help where they're located, but there is a shooting range next door and planes flying overhead. The showers are $0.25 for only 3 minutes. They have not cleaned the shower or emptied the trash in two days. For $67 per night we say this is a bit pricey. This could be a very nice campsite if they maintained it. - Leesfromga

All in all a very nice large campground with generally spacious sites. Site #26 was especially long and spacious for our 40 foot rig and toad. We used the fire ring to good effect with the nice stones/rock setup. The lodge personnel were friendly. The store was well stocked and they service ice cream until 9pm. Satellite didn't work with all of the wonderful tree canopy but the over sixty channels on cable more then compensated. I would return to this site. Plymouth has a lot to offer. - RVStudent

The park was over priced for the services, its a large park in the woods dirt sites and lots of seasonal campers. The pond is nice and the beach is kept clean. The fire wood was expensive, you could bring your own but it couldn't touch the ground it had to come from your vehicle and into to the fire pit. If you had a visitor no matter what using the facilities or not it was $10. The only full hook up sites were on the entrance road, we got to see all the comings and goings for a week and witnessed the total disregard for the speed limit. I lived in Plymouth for 25 years and didn't know this place existed we came back to visit and found it. The staff was friendly and helpful but it was all about the cash. - Tfrout

I've stayed a few times at Ellis Haven and have zero complaints. Camping is about family time and there are all kinds of activities for the children. Everything is posted through out the campground. The sites have been made larger over the years. I would like to see some drivers go slower. The only real issue is some of the roads could be a tad wider. I wish the helpers would clean off the stairs at the pond for the elderly. My whole Family enjoys coming here. I'll be coming to Ellis Haven again. - Darci Kendall

Making the reservation was easy and the woman I spoke to very welcoming. Bathrooms are scary and dark.. and desperately need updating. Mini golf is overpriced and not very appealing . Showers aren't great either . Season sites are very run down and the "store" is a small back room with some items. Lakes are pretty. Playground is big. Sites are literally on top of each other where we are . We need to check in with the neighbors to let us drive in and out . Site size is pretty big but zero lighting near the ball field where we are . Makes it a little tougher to find the bathrooms at night . They had a meat raffle last night and all the campers seemed pretty happy. No angry people . There is a lot of sand and dirt which my daughter loves , but definitely bring sneakers !! - Camping mom Kris

This is a really nice, well-organised park. The staff were very friendly and we had no problem changing our reservation to an earlier date when we found ourselves ahead of schedule. The interior roads are in great shape. Our site was slightly sloped, but it was easy to level. They have many mature trees and many amenities. It seems like a great place to take kids. The only thing we didn't like was the relatively high price. - John A Guderian

I read some of the posts about the issues with the park which I was worried about. However our experience was very different. The park is well maintained and there was a driver who passed by often checking on things. Garbage was picked up regularly and the park was very clean. The staff was very helpful and gave loads of info about the local sites and things to do. We had a very good time and will definitely return to this campground. - bobm749

Horrible experience! Out of CONTROL loud music, excessive traffic, loud profanity until 3 AM! Pool was nasty all weekend! Front desk staff is not capable of handling even small tasks in a timely manner. What you'll find here are "Locals" who come to PARTY all night long every weekend. They don't take the rules and policies serious, because no one enforces them! The kids run around getting into mischief and being unruly until all hours of the night. You will not see nice big rigs here. We ask for a picnic table 3 times. Water pressure is low. Power kept going off. New manager is UNQUALIFIED/Epic Failure! 1. Get REAL security. Police get called because the two old guys who patrol the place ride around with the windows up in the truck. 2. Hire capable customer service for the store and especially outside. How about the manager quit trying to impress corporate with all his "banking experience" counting beans and clean this place up. Can not recommend!!! - LPhilo

Very nice family campground. Lots of activities for kids and adults. Looks like there was an expansion and that is where big rigs park. No trees there, rest of campground is pretty heavily treed. Lots of shade, trees were well trimmed. Office staff were very nice and helpful. We used the campground as a base for touring nearby areas of interest. Here for the 4th and no fireworks in the campground but could hear some nearby. Had a bonfire at dusk on the beach. Well run and maintained facility. - DRKM

Very pricey to be in an open field. WIFI was good, young lady at check in was very helpful regarding what to do in the area. We were there the last 3 days they were open for the season and zero discount!! - mdjr

We stayed over the week of labor day. We liked the pullthru area. 50 amps and sewer. The Big Rig area had no trees & that is alright with me. All the barking & kids noise was over in the well kept camp areas away from us. There many seasonal campers here. Lots of things for family & kids to enjoy. The staff were friendly. Service was great & the Camp was clean. This really is a great spot. The only issue we had was the laundry. We are fulltime and found the laundry facility to be the only thing lacking. There simply were not enough washers or dryers. With 300 or so campsites, 5 units did not meet the demands. - KodiTzu

This is a tough park to review since it is not a park. Someone took parking spaces at a marina and added water and electric. Here's the good, you are on the water and it is awesome. You see lighthouses, boats on mooring balls, fantastic sunsets and nice people working here. You also are only a 3 minute drive to downtown Salem. Now the bad, the worst restroom/bath house we saw on our three week trip. When I say bad I mean bad. My wife would not shower or use the restrooms. This is the first time in all our camping this has happened. So, if your RV has restroom facilities or all your tetanus shots are up to date then I would give this a thumbs up. If bad restrooms are a deal killer for, move on and book something else. Don't follow your GPS when you get within a mile. The signs show you the way. - Lil camper

We stayed 9 nights. We had site 43 (field) for 2 nights at $47/night then moved to site 15 (waterfront) for 7 nights at $50/night. It was two separate reservations. Each reservation charged a $3.50 transaction fee. There's something "funny" about reservations at this campground. Apparently there is one policy for regular folks and another policy for "friends of the park manager. We made a 9 night reservation for site 15 on ReserveAmerica. The system completed our transaction and took our money. Later that day, we received a call from ReserveAmerica canceling our transaction. They simply refunded our money and said our site was already promised to someone else. I put up a fuss but ReserveAmerica wouldn't budge. Ultimately we were forced to reserve two sites for our 9 day stay - neither site was the one we initially reserved. When we arrived at the campground, we were told first hand by "friends of the manager" that he had set aside site 15 (and other waterfront sites) for that weekend for his friends. There's also something "funny" about honey wagon service. When we inquired, the manager suggested calling United Site Services (USS) for possible honey wagon service. USS said it does not regularly visit Winter Island but would provide service for $140. Ouch. We did not request service. A day later we saw a USS truck dumping our neighbor. In speaking with the neighbor, they said they pay $30 (if I recall correctly) and they get dumped weekly. BUT --- even with all the funny business --- we really liked Winter Island. The field area isn't awful. The waterfront site was fabulous. We pulled nose-in and had a fabulous view through our windshield. The showers aren't horrible and the cleaning lady was very sweet. Hook-ups worked well. Received solid Verizon cell, Verizon mifi and DirecTV signals. Agree big rigs should avoid 16B,16C,16D. Boat launch wasn't too noisy for us. We enjoyed the park and its proximity to Salem and Boston. We would gladly stay again. - GottaGoNow

Winter Island is a Salem, MA city park that includes a pier with waterfront RV sites, beaches, short trail overlooks, historic Fort Pickering, tent sites, tide pools, and a lovely lighthouse. The Marina views from sites 12 through 16D are amongst the best anywhere. We pull our RV in front first to maximize the view so bring long cables. There are also additional RV sites on the pier that have partial marina views and additional Safari Field sites 42 to 55 that are a 3 minute stroll to the waterfront. The only drawback is that NONE of the sites have sewer hookups but free dumping is available at the nearby water treatment plant. Starting this year, reservations are handled by Reserve America. We love this Winter Island and also Salem. - ellynmae

Giant state park with a nice network of hiking paths and paved bike trails. We stayed at the lower end of Fearing Pond at site H9. We chose the Fearing Pond loop after reading other reviews that mentioned the main Charge Pond camping area had a reputation for being a little rowdier and noisy, even after quiet hours. For the most part, the Fearing loop was quiet, but the campsites are very close to each other with no vegetation or cover between sites. This also means that it is easy to hear conversations of campers at nearby sites.
Our site was an easy walk to Fearing Pond, where there was a nice, small beach. We were told over the phone that no non-marine-grade flotation devices were allowed in the water, but many families brought inflatable floats and appeared to use them without trouble. There are no kayaks to rent on-site, but there is a rental place a few miles away, with the guideline of renting for no less than a full day, and transporting it to and from the camp on your own.
There were multiple potable water stations and dump stations located on a loop behind the check-in station, for easy fill-up/dumping on the way in or out of the park. Additionally, many potable water stations were located throughout the loops in the park. - malsbury

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
