Great campgrounds and state parks welcome you to Greater Boston and Cambridge

Perhaps surprisingly, travelers can find campgrounds in Boston, MA – at the Bosto harbor Island National Park, a cluster of 34 islands in and just beyond Boston harbor and a 45-minute ferry ride from downtown Boston. The Boston Harbor Islands, where public facilities are undergoing recent and large-scale renovation projects, offer shell and slate beaches as well as swimming beaches. It is a wonderfully unusual way to combine an urban and rustic vacation, with a short ferry ride connecting the two worlds.
