Ahhh, camping. It’s quite possibly the funnest way to experience nature, and positively the easiest way to escape from everyday life. And whether it’s to the west, surrounded by beautiful fall foliage in the Hoosac Mountain Range, to the south in Myles Standish State Forest, or up north in Salisbury Beach State Reservation, where only the gentle sounds of the ocean can be heard, you’ll find a variety of campsites to enjoy practically everywhere in the state.

Camping amidst sand dunes and pines at Dunes’ Edge Campground in Cape Cod…51 large and private campsites are available in Greater Merrimack Valley at Pearl Hill State Park…Short- to long-term camping can be found at Ellis Haven Family Campground, located South of Boston.
