Swanson's Farm

1 site · RV, Tent33 acres · West Greenwich, RI
We have a pretty magical farm in rural West Greenwich. We are only about 10 mins from I-95 but we are nestled in the woods. Fall asleep to the sound of crickets and cicadas and wake up to birds chirping and our rooster crowing . It is certainly a peaceful, quiet, private area. Our site has a waste-bag toilet (must take waste with you), an extension cord and a sink. The site is located in a quiet field where you will often find deer grazing in the morning and afternoon. We are a young farming family. Our dream is to build a cidery on this property in future years. We have started to plant our orchard with cider apple varieties, about 650 dwarf apple trees, and we are also growing some flowers and squash at the moment. We currently have six pigs and nine chickens on the farm. Eggs and cuts of pork are available for purchase, just ask! Feel free to walk around the farm, just be respectful, don't leave anything behind, and be aware that some areas have poison ivy (the field where you are staying does not have any).

The lighthouse stands at 59 feet tall and continues to guide ships in and out of Salem Harbor with an alternating 20-second white-red light. The 10-acre light station, which includes six historic structures such as two keepers houses, an oil house, and a lantern room (now operating as a gift shop), is located in the northwest quadrant of the island and was formally owned and operated by the US Coast Guard. The rest of the island is in private ownership including the Bakers Island Wharf. The deed to historic Bakers Island Light Station was transferred on August 27, 2014, from the United States government to the Essex National Heritage Commission (Essex Heritage). Learn more about this land: Rated #1 Hipcamp site in Massachusetts by Outdoor Magazine in 2020! Enjoy the sights and sounds of off-the-grid coastal living at the Bakers Island Light Station Campsite.

The best camping near Myles Standish State Forest guide

Overview

About

Located in America’s hometown of Plymouth, stands Myles Standish State Forest, the largest recreation area in southeastern Massachusetts. The park offers vast forests of pine, camping, hunting, fishing, canoeing, and picturesque kettle ponds. There are 15 miles of bicycle trails, 35 miles of equestrian trails, and 13 miles of hiking trails that take visitors deep into the pitch pine/scrub oak communities. It’s a great place to come for the day and exercise, or make a trip out of it for a quaint little get-a-way. In the summer, interpretive programs, such as pond shore walks and cranberry bog explorations help acquaint you and your little tykes with the unique natural, cultural and historic gems of the state forest. Once you are here you can inhale the sweet pine, rejuvenate, and wonder how this wide expanse of nature can be located so close to Boston and its suburbs.
