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, including the Boston Harbor islands and on Cape Cod. Many private campgrounds also operate throughout the state, along the coast, in the Berkshire Mountains, and through the historic regions near Plymouth and Salem. A stay at an Massachusetts campground is a wonderful and inexpensive outdoor-oriented vacation for children and families, and people who love the beach, fishing, swimming, boating, and hiking.
