Suggestions for Boston area

Do you have any campground suggestions for 5 nights near Boston - traveling with a 4, 6, 8 year old. Son and family will tent camp next to our motorhome. We hope to tour Boston during the day and keep the munchins entertained at night! Thanks!

Check out Ogunquit Maine. It's not far at all from Boston!

Wife and I stay at Winter Park in Salem while visiting family in Boston, you can catch the trolley there and go about anywhere, lots of history and things to do.

I've heard the KOA in Plymouth is pretty nice. Getting in and out of Boston from there isn't too bad as long as you avoid rush hour. Cape traffic may be an issue if you are going in season.

Some friends recommended Minuteman to us the other day for a lacrosse tournament we are headed to in a couple months at what used to be Fort Devens. You'd be just outside 128 and just about a straight shot down route 2 into town.

KOA would be close to some nice historical sites like Plymouth Plantation which might be fun for the little ones.

If you are going in the summer, Salisbury Sate Park is on the Ocean and as a State Park is very reasonable (Salisbury Beach State Reservation) and about 40 minutes from Boston.

If you look 30-40 mins or even an hour outside of Boston there will be LOTS of options.

Other than access to Boston, are you looking at other spots to visit or amenities needed or close by?

To add to my post, you have public transportation in the immediate area to get you into Boston (parking is tough and $$$). This cg was a KOA years ago and went on their own. They have maintained the high standards.
The Boston KOA in Middleboro is nice too and has public transportation in the immediate area. You have historic Plymouth very close by and also Fall River. There are beaches available. Cape Cod canal and Hyannis are within an hours ride. Would be happy to give additional help if you have questions.

Boston

We camped at state park in Hingham.It was great and we took the ferry into Boston two different days and back in the evening.The short trip on the ferry was great and no traffic.It drops you off right in Boston Harbour.The 5 nights at the state park cost us only 85.00! what a deal so close to Boston.We loved it !

Is the ferry close to the State Park where you can walk, or do you need a car.
