“Pretty primitive, but quiet and well-spaced sites”
Reviewed Sep 09, 2017
Typical Mass State park: no hookups, water available at specific locations (no sites), and no park rangers, just front office staff. Solar is pretty iffy because these sites are mostly truly shaded from sunlight; I had to break out the generator by day 3.
The trails are the win here, beautiful long hikes that lead to Heritage Garden or just around the park. You can also walk to a grocery store (Stop and Shop), hardware store, and pharmacy. Or the Cape Cod canal!
Sites are dirt and mud and tree roots, so you may need to go back and get a second pick of a site, because the entrance to some sites, like 41C, is very tight, with trees on both sides of the entrance and roots, rocks and mud making it challenge to back up straight.
The upside is that you can usually find a spot here even on Labor Day weekend! Note: in winter, only the east loop is open, and some sites there are very close to Route 6, so lots of traffic noise. Also, there is a railroad line so you may hear train whistles, but generally only during the day.
