Lakeside camping near Boston with fishing guide

Overview

Boston is a roiling metropolitan area with plenty of camping opportunities along its outskirts such as lake camping at Ponkapoag Pond and Glen Echo Pond to the south. To the west there's farm camping, an opportunity to live your bucolic dream and breathe in the fresh air of the countryside. Or opt for some coastal camping at the Boston Harbor Islands of Grape, Bumpkin, Peddocks, and Lovells to the east. In fact, the latter offers awesome views of the Boston skyline while giving privacy and relaxation. Peddocks Island isn't just about sand and surf, but it's also rife with Civil War history, hiking trails, and fishing, a sort of all-in-one deal. While you're within a few miles of downtown Boston, take an opportunity to visit some of the most famous historical sites such as Boston Commons, The Paul Revere House or the Old State House. Walk the Freedom Trail, stopping just long enough at the waterfront for some to-die-for lobster rolls. Whether you want to experience history, the countryside, or sand and sun, Boston has it in spades.
