Great campgrounds and state parks welcome you to the Berkshires

Among the choices of Massachusetts lodgings and accommodations are public and private campgrounds. Massachusetts campgrounds are operated at many of the dozens of state forests and state parks throughout the state, in the Berkshires region of Massachusetts, including Great Barrington and Stockbridge, and in the Connecticut River Valley towns of Springfield, West Springfield, Northampton, and Amherst. Many private campgrounds also operate in the Berkshire Mountains region of Mass., including Mount Washington and Mount Greylock. A stay at an MA campground is a wonderful and inexpensive outdoor-oriented vacation for children and families, and people who love the beach, fishing, swimming, boating, and hiking.
