"Great location to explore the area"

We arrived following the website instructions and signage for our two nights stay. Our GPS wanted to have us turn on Bradbury by a school, which would have been fine too. The office was closed but our arrival package was in the check in box. We proceeded to FHU site 107, which we had chosen online. We had a tough back-in on the corner. ...

"Good access to Mass. tourist areas"

We stayed here last minute because of Mass. getting so strict. The price for the site is too steep for what is there. They are very flat but these sites are close together.
