Very helpful host; he helped us get into our site and gave us a lot of info about the local area. Nice laundry facilities (although no quarter machine) and a book exchange. The Famcamp is first come, first served (no reservations), but we had no problems in October. Plenty of spots available, even for our big 42.5' fifth. Easy to navigate to the park, as well as the interior roads. You have your choice spots with plenty of tall trees overhead, or in wide open areas. Excellent value in a great location. - RVerFamily

Nice park but nothing special. Good wifi. No cable and satellite is site dependent; was able to get with my portable by running wire across the street to open area. No reservations. - z32k12

Nice location near Boston area. The campground is near the airport runway with mostly civilian aircraft traffic. The campgrounds has dated facilities but the staff are excellent. The local history is rich in sites and information about the American Revolution period. - boomerlee

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

The site we had was a pull through that we were able to pull into but were not able to pull out of safely with our 30' travel trailer. They had just finished installing water on every site but we were not charged for the fee for water. The playground was very modern. The kids had a great time riding their bikes. The swimming area didn't look too great and the pond was okay for canoeing with my 10 year old. We probably won't go back but do recommend it. - B. P. Donelan

We've stayed here before and will again, since we have relatives nearby, and there are no other options as convenient for us. However, the sites are lovely but primitive. Parking is tight, so larger rigs should avoid. Outstanding locations for tents. - Tiger

Harold Parker is a treasure close to Boston. The park has miles of hiking, mountain biking and horseback riding trails among eleven ponds for boating and fishing and swimming. There are more geocaches in this park than I have ever seen before. The Rangers keep the bathrooms and showers neat and clean. The sites are large and well spaced. Most sites are surrounded by trees. We come here whenever we need a short getaway. The only issue with Harold Parker is the historic use of the Park as a party place for many young people. The Rangers have started to staple the rule stating "Alcohol is not allowed in any Massachusetts State Park" to every campground map so I believe there will be a zero tolerance for alcohol related disturbances. Even so, inspect your site before allowing the kids to run barefoot. Police patrol through the park and campground regularly day and night. This is a lovely place and the Rangers are doing a great job preserving and restoring it. - Wind Rider

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
