Just hop on board the ferry with your gear to get to your campsite. Stock up on baby wipes and be prepared to supply your own water beforehand because there’s no showers or water source. (Don’t worry though, the other campers will smell, too.) And don’t forget, whatever you take in with you, you gotta take out! Peddocks Island has yurts, but reserve early because those prime spots and ferry seats get snatched up fast.

Kayaked to Lovells island from Christian A Herter Park above Harvard on the Charles River over July 4th weekend, 2016. Do your homework on the weather before you leave (tides/winds/etc). The camping on Lovells island is top notch. Reserve your spot months in advanced. If you do not have a large group, its easy to improvise and find a good spot. Make sure you account for a good breeze. Great view of the city skyline, Boston bay, and in my case panoramic view of fireworks up and down the coast. Bring smores for a solid beach campfire. A must for good vibes.
