There is a problem in all the northeast, all the land is "owned". There is very little park and federally owned land outside of New York (don't go there with or without a gun) and Maine. I used to do a lot of camping before I left the area. There were places I could drag a bicycle into the woods and tent camp, but even that was tense at times. I hope someone comes along with good ideas, because mine would be leave MA.

An hour away from Boston? Sounds like Worcester County to me. There is the Pilot in Sturbridge. There is also the Sturbridge Mobil Station on old US-15 next to the Sbarro's and Roy Rogers. Just ask first. Not usually a problem unless the local cops are enforcing the no overnight parking ban. They usually don't unless there is a problem.

btw, they do enforce the overnight parking ban at the Sturbridge Walmart.

Check with the local hospitals. Although they're not publicizing it they will usually allow you to park a night or two in their lot.

A friend did this after a family member had a bad car wreck, the staff even let him shower in the hospital.

The Appalachian Trail goes through western MA. There are a few places where people park to access the trail. Some that come to mind include S. Egremont, Cheshire and North Adams. People leave cars there overnight to hike the trail. If there is enough room for a large RV I don't see why you cant park at some of these places.

Normandy Farms Campground is in Foxboro MA with access to Commuter Rail into Boston if needed. http://www.normandyfarms.com/rates.htm . Also Circle CG Campground in Bellingham MA with Commuter Rail as well. Both are along RT 495 . http://circlecgfarm.com/ . I'm about 15 minutes from both of them & stayed at Circle CG last weekend on my shakedown cruise.
