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.

Just 30 minutes from downtown Boston

Rocky Woods features over six miles of former woods roads and footpaths rambling through rolling hills of white pine and red oak. Explorers of the four ponds on the reservation may find bullfrogs and painted turtles, and visitors can enjoy catch-and-release fishing from these shores. Recent landscape renovations have created a scenic meadow, grassy common areas, sandy shorelines, and plantings of ornamental shrubs. Restrooms, picnic tables and a pavilion are onsite, and future plans include creating a visitor center and improved children's play area. - Trail Map (PDF) - Campsite Map (PDF)
