State parks usually have the lowest rates.
Many offer Senior discounts. See the specific details for the park in which you are interested.

Primitive Camping means with a tent and no service like electricity and water. This is the cheapest way.
Not all parks offer this lower rate.

Camper / Motor home pull in sites can come with a variety of amenities. Rates vary depending if they are with and without services such as electrical hook-up, water, waste water dump and cable TV.

Cabins: When available rates often vary depending on location and the size of the cabin within the park.

Same thing applies as for cabins about location and size prices.

Dogs: Parks vary on this, but some welcome well behaved dogs. Some charge $15. per night for a dog to stay with you. You are always expected to clean up after your dog.

Some parks do not welcome dogs, and others prohibit them from certain areas such as buildings on site etc. Leash regulations often apply, as well.

Activities are usually based on the type of location.
The campground headquarters can provide you with information about campground activities and events.

Often there are lists and pamphlets for local tourist attractions there.

Most offer a beach or swimming pool or river. Canoeing or boating is often available.

Almost all have picnic areas and hiking trails.

For those that like golf, there are some campgrounds with a course nearby or in the park.


Massachusetts State Parks Terrain

There's a wide variety of terrain from the Cape Cod sands and ocean beaches to mountainous areas.

Altogether there are well over 3,500 sites situated on Massachusetts State campgrounds during the year

Horseneck Beach in Westport and the beach parks on Cape Cod are great beach camping areas

In a couple of hours you can go from pine forests of Cape Cod to deciduous treed areas of eastern, central and western Mass.

Off site activities are numerous and include many historic sites. Massachusetts was first colonized in 1620.

The areas often offer cabins, and the campgrounds vary from primitive with no amenities to full service RV pads.

Some Massachusetts State parks have boating, fishing and swimming etc..

There is always something to do with various activities for all ages.

Sometimes it's just nice to sit in your campsite in the fresh air and chat with your friends and family, read a book or take a nap.
