  • Went on a day trip with the family for a swim, the kids loved it there, very clean place,bathrooms are very clean, there could be a couple loud people there, but I ignore, will go there again. 
  • We went camping to enjoy time away from the city. Instead, we heard the loud music and children screaming well after midnight and before 8 am. The site was next to the road so we heard traffic noise a...  read more »
  • We went tent camping and had a good experience on Reserve America, even pre-registered on-line, so I thought we were all set. Myles Standish State Forest is very big. We went to our campsite, listed a...  read more »
  • First time camping here and as soon as I arrived and checked into the headquarters, one of the staff members who wasn't even taking care of my group was incredibly rude to us. Giving us highly unnecessary attitude, making rude comments, etc. We get to our campsite, and the site we were supposed to have, and reserved for, was completely filled up so we had to move to a completely other campsite. Not cool. Really cramped site too. The bathroom was absolutely disgusting, waste all over the toilets and even in the showers. Literally the only good thing about the trip was the lake we swam in. Beautiful lake and decent little beach. All in all not the best experience.
  • $17 per night. Check in at 1, check out at 11. I go here every year at the same time for 10 days. Make reservations far in advance if you want the best sites long term like we do. We like Curlew Pond. Great for kayaking, swimming, etc. Lots of trails, nice bathroom and shower facilities. Visitors are only $8 per car. There's also a pond you can go for day trips called College Pond.
  • My family and I have been camping at Myles Standish State Forest every year since I was 6 months old up until I went away to college. It was always a great way to spend a week or two during the summer. Completely disconnect from everything. With such a large campground its hard to review it all at once. There are several camp-site ponds, some public day-use beaches, equestrian trails, and tons of biking, dirt-biking, and hiking trails. I would recommend Curlew Pond for camping, its a pretty quiet pond, and most of the campsites have direct access to the water, though some are down a steep hill. The bathhouses are kept quite clean and were rebuilt about 10 years ago. What better way to spend a week then swimming, hikes, campfires, and fun. If you want to take some time out of the park, its not a long drive to Plymouth and you can see some historic sites and do the whole tourist thing too.
  • Love the area. Beautiful forest, the hiking trails, the ponds are all fabulous. The campgrounds have little to be desired. Bathrooms must be almost impossible to keep up with in the height of busy season + it shows.
  • What a gem of a recreation area! We only had the opportunity to camp for one night, but this seems like an amazing resource to the public! We would highly recommend camping here -- And it is still affordable! Check it out if you're traveling through!
