  What do our ratings mean?
Wompatuck State Park is probably the closest campground to the Boston area. This is a perfect place for a night away from home when you do not have time to spend the whole weekend in the great outdoors. Still, you will be deep in the woods, and you will feel as far from the big city as you would in New Hampshire or Maine.
All 260 campsites are under the trees and therefore very shady in the summer. Most have long driveways that take you off the access roads.
Several trails around the campground will allow you to explore the State Park, and there is a 12-mile network of bike trails on the other side of Union Street. Other roads in and around the Park are also very pleasant for a bike ride, and traffic is usually light in the area. Mountain biking is also allowed on trails in the Park.

From Wompatuck State Park, you can also drive to Hingham Harbor, one of the best spots for paddling around Boston. Check our Kayak at Hingham adventure to go on the water with no hassle.

You can make an advance reservation for Wompatuck State Park campground by calling 1-877-422-6762 or by visiting www.reserveamerica.com.
