Campground in/near Boston/Ma

Hi,

I am quite surprised that there is no CG in or very close to Boston. It's a business idea: we create a CG there. Who's with me?

OK, but 45 or more miles are too much for a day or weekend visit. For what it's Homo Depot or Walmart?

Or does anyone have a better idea where we can stand up to us for 2 days next weekend?

In Germany and many other European countries, there are so-called "spaces".

Almost all are free or you can use them for little money. Some even offer water and electricity for a small fee. Is there such a thing in USA?

Walter

Normandy Farms RV Resort in Foxboro, MA has high reviews and is fairly close to Boston.

Home - Normandy Farms

A lot of the cities in the USA have started building RV/camping areas in their city parks. We spent 3 nights in the city park at Sayre, OK with water and electric hookups at the camp site. They also have a holding tank dump. It only cost $12 a night.

I don't think we have many, if any, places that are as you describe. We think the best campground to use to visit Boston is Boston Minuteman in Littleton. Reasonable rates, very helpful staff, short drive to public transportation, which is the best way to visit Boston.

I don't believe $50+ a night a "good" find.

I'm so fortunate to have a brother living about 60 miles from there, however we just don't go into Boston except occasionally.

Wayne,

"In season", especially, I'm afraid things are expensive here in the northeast. We don't like it, but not much we can do about it, other than get out or stay home. State parks are usually cheaper, but they either have no hookups or are booked through September. And as far as Boston area is concerned, the choices are few and far between.

Neil

Smile near boston campground

Walter, You might want to look at wamputuck state park in hingham ma. its not a bad ride into boston except rush hour. There is a Boat that runs out of hingham harbor that a lot of people use to get into boston. the rate for the park is 17.00 with elec, and the water connections are not at the site but close by. i was there last week but the rain was too much and we left. I was visiting family in the area and only slept there so i have no info on this park. paul
