  • We found this place by accident just because we were looking for lighthouses to visit. It was an adventure going down the stairs to the rocks around the lighthouse. It was so peaceful and they have lo...  more »
  • Stopped in quickly to view the ocean. The staff at the gate were very friendly and the view was beautiful. The lighthouse was the best part. 
  • We've camped here for the past five Octobers in a row. Winter Island is a piece of peace when we need to get away from the madding tourist crowds on Essex Street and Derby Street during "high season"....  more »

  • We spent 3 days there and LOVED it! The location is excellent, just a few minutes from Salem and a 30 minute train ride to downtown Boston. The staff is fantastic, we enjoyed our stay there so much we cancelled our appointments to a KOA on the outskirts of Boston for the latter part of our trip. We drive a 39 foot class A with a tow vehicle and had no problems maneuvering through the park. We will definitely go back!!!
  • Great view. Quiet. Not your usual campground if your not in the field. But a great trade off for the view. Nice staff. You can catch the frilly into town to avoid trying to park but it's a little pricey and the last trolley back is at 4.
  • Just got back from spending 3 nights at Winter Island Park. We had a wonderful time tent camping there! Beautiful park, friendly staff, clean bathrooms and showers. Make sure to book early to get a good site. I recommend calling and speaking with some one about which sites are best if interested in tent camping. The beach is lovely! Very close to down town Salem, Peabody, Danvers. There is a trolley you can take in to town. Lots to do in the area. FYI, this is not a traditional campground, it is a public park. Not all of the campsites are surrounded by trees, so not all of the tent sites are private. However, it is very safe there, no body will bother your belongings while you're out touring. Check out Salem Willows Park while you're there. Totally worth it!
  • Great place to visit. Camped out here on the water front. Very cool cooking at night on a camping stove under the stars at this place. Cool history and the light house is nice at night.
  • If you are seeking a place that is close to Boston and minutes away from the commuter rail into the city, then this is 5 stars. However, if you are seeking a memorable camping experience then this is one star.There are electric and water hookups, but beyond that it is a large dusty parking lot where the spaces are marked by chock lines in the dirt. The bathroom was clean but sorely in need of maintenance. Fire pits are not provided because campfires on the ground are not permitted. Based upon your intentions this could be one star or five stars, therefore I gave it a three star rating.
