Sounds like a fun trip! There are endless things to do in boston. A good campground to stay at is Boston/Minuteman in Littleton. It's about 40 miles west of Boston but you can drive to the subway red line in Cambridge to easily get in and out of Boston for day trips.

Normandy Farms in Foxboro is a great campground especially for children. It's only 25 miles from Boston, a hope skip and s jump to Patriots Place (stadium ) and 50-60 miles to Cape Cod. Not sure if you stayed in Bar Harbor before but I suggest Narrows Two campground. If you are a TT member you get a pretty good deal.

Narrows two is a corporate chain park that is very expensive at that time of year. You can get with in a couple of miles of Bar Harbor by staying at Bar Harbor Campground. Family owned, they do not take reservations, but they have over 300 sites. KOA on Mt. Desert Island also gets good reviews on RVParkReviews.Com

X2 on Boston/Minuteman in Littleton. It is right of Interstate 495 and you can then take the train into Boston. The train station is about a mile from the campground. The campground is a clean and friendly place to stay.

Sounds like a great trip. Down in the Boston area there are few options. Two have been mentioned here. Normandy Farms is a very large Campground with quite a few amenities, it is located about 3 miles from Foxboro stadium. The Minuteman campsite is nice, has received some upgrades in recent years the roadways are narrow for larger ubits, it does have access to the train.
There is another option Salisbury State reservation is a large stae facility, does not have sewage, does have a dump station. It is located on the ocean and beach, directly down RT 95 to Boston.
Of course when you are in Boston a Red Sox game is a must, a tour of the City on the Duck Boats, a stop at Fanuael Hall, Restaurants in the North End or in the Sea Port District. Do not forget though to make it over to Lexington and Concord, or upto Lowell and Lawrence where the Industrial revolution began.
Sorry for rambling much to do, so little time.

Jack- Lake Bomoseen is a long time favorite part of VT for us... we are doing a real similar trip from Northern NJ to Boston (Looking at Boston Minuteman CG) then a stop at the Budweiser Brewery for a tour- then off to Bar Harbor (Bar Harbor CG) and then to the White mountains (Glen Ellis CG) and Mt Washington.... Maybe a stop in the W Springfield MA area to see some college friends on the way back....

Boatless- Would welcome your suggestions... anything we should not miss while in the area?

Get RV park reservations early in New England and the Red Socks tickets will need to be purchased in advance. Good Luck

Camping near Boston

I may be too late with this post but a few years ago we camped in Hingham ,Mass at the state park begins with W- Wampatuck something like that.
You could drive about 10 minutes,park your car for 3.00 and catch a passenger ferry right into Boston Harbour.The cost was about 12.00 return.It was an incredible way to do it as the ride was only about 20 minutes and lots to look at and wonderful at night with all the lights.You are dropped off right in the Center of the action!We took a hop off and on one day and went wall over Boston and then took the subway to JF Kennedy Museum.We went back on a second day and did a walking tour,took in the ball game at Fenway Park.The campground was terrific ,quiet with lots of wonderful trees.We camped for 5 nights for 85.00 and we were so close to Boston!!Highly recommend this way although I realize it may be a bit more expensive for a family with the ferry.Hope this helps!
