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

On a four month travel from Tucson up into the N.E. Hard to find an RV park mid-Oct in this area. Chose this one and it's fine. Setting is in the woods, heavily treed, rustic camping, yet with full hook-ups. Staff was friendly & helpful. This is a summertime retreat with a large lodge, lake and seemingly a myriad of activities for families escaping the Boston area. We'd stay again. - TPDBOB8687

Charge extra for pets ($10 per night for 2). Will charge you for a full propane tank even if your tank is not completely empty (mine was at about 1/3 full so I didn't get it filled). Lots of rules and regulations. Absolutely nothing private about the showers--door opens to the shower curtains facing the door. Very few restrooms so my friends, who were unlucky enough not to have their own bathroom, had to really trek to use the facilities and being able to cut through my site cut off a little of the distance. - Scldg

Our site was a back-in that was a bit off the road. We had to block up the front of the coach (even with jacks), since the site wasn't level. No breaker at the power box. Decent sewer connection. Very wooded. The staff in the office was friendly and efficient. Quite smokey from all the campfires. - DreamCaptn

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

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

Very closed in, small, tight sites. Good proximity to travel out from the park to Boston, Cape Cod etc. We could get our tow vehicle on our site, but barely. - mdjr

Kind of in the middle of nowhere. Park is a little in need of TLC. Stay away from the upper camping area, really bad roads and unlevel spaces. We were camping elsewhere and extended our vacation staying here. We were able to check out the campground the day before we moved there. Staff was very nice about letting us pick a different campsite. Store was sadly stocked. - Retired Medic

This was our third stay at this campground and I'm not sure what's happened but things seem to have gone downhill. We stayed during the KOA free night which might be why it was so crowded so we only got a water/electric spot. It was not at all level and had lots of roots on dirt. Using the showers in the main building was odd because the shower head was on the side you walk in on so you have to get wet to turn on the shower. There's another shower for full-hookup sites which is better. As mentioned by other campers there are no rules enforced. On the Saturday night there were cars and trucks parked everywhere; some as many as four to a site. There's plenty of overflow parking but seems people don't want to walk. One couple waved through our door as they cut through our site. People across from us seemed to be long-term with large outside TV (loud) and a large black dog that barked a lot and often was off leash. Lots of trees but none that prevented backing in although the road was not in good condition. It is convenient to shopping and freeways and about halfway between Cape Cod and Boston. The wifi worked OK. Ask for a space along the back row which are full-hookups. - Catsinatrailer

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 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 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
