Boston visit

Any suggestions on campgrounds while visiting Boston?

Have stayed here a couple of times. When visiting Boston we drove the car to the nearest train station, parked it there and took the train into Boston. Once in Boston we took public transportation or just walked. That are tour buses all over town that you can take and get on/off at different locations.

We have stayed at three different parks. First we stopped at Sturbridge Village Thousand Trails park. Twice at the Circle CG Farm Campground at
131 North Main St. (RT 126), Bellingham, MA 02019, and the last one at the Boston Minuetman Campground, 264 Ayer Road, Littleton, MA 01460. The Sturbridge park was old, but clean and well maintained. 30 amp no sewer near the lake and 50 amp tight sites away from the lake. We liked both the other two parks much more and both are closer to Boston. If you do not know Boston, it would be best to park in a lot, then walk. My wife is a Boston girl so she gave me the directions.

It's been a few years (10?), but we had a great stay at Normandy Farms. Beautiful amenities.

At that time, they offered a bus tour of Boston from the resort. The driver was a work camper from the resort. No way I was driving our big pickup into Boston. If they no longer offer tours, I would suggest you check out a Gray Line tour. We've done tours like that in several cities and never been disappointed.

Normandy Farms is very near that big stadium where a certain football team plays.

Have a great time. I grew up there so never camped. So many places to visit in town if you are into history. The old cemetery where Sam Adams is buried. His headstone is easy to spot as there is usually an empty bottle of Sam Adams beer on top.

We have spent a lot of RV time in the Boston area as kids went to college there and stayed. We've spent many nights in Home Depot, Costco, and Lowes parking lots. But our two favorite real campgrounds are north of the city. One in Salem, Winter Island Park. We prefer the parking lot spaces because of the view, but the grassy areas are nice also. It fills up fast in the fall. The other is in Gloucester, Cape Ann Campsite. Smaller rigs can get back into the woods but there is plenty of big rig parking up front. This one has a great beach park right down the street. Both towns are fun to visit and you can take a train into Boston or drive your car. I do not recommend driving your RV into the city, the tunnels, traffic, and narrow streets make it very difficult.
