438 Plymouth St., Middleborough

This kid-friendly campground has a “jumping pillow” (like an unenclosed bounce house), an outdoor pool, basketball and volleyball courts, bocce, miniature golf, horseshoes, playgrounds, a dog park (being rebuilt), a camp store, and organized weekend activities. Accommodations include RV and tent sites, rustic cabins, and furnished cabins.

Myles Standish State Forest

Cranberry Road (at the end), Carver


No less than 16 ponds and the state’s only horse camping area make this nearly 15,000-acre park stand out. A favorite with freshwater swimmers, it offers five camping areas along the shores of four of the ponds, ranger-led walks, and interpretive programs. Sites are available for RVs and tents, and the campground has three yurts built within the last few years.

Normandy Farms

72 West St., Foxborough


This resort-like park is far from roughing it, with an indoor pool, three outdoor pools, three hot tubs, activity lodge, a disc golf course, and massages offered, plus the more traditional amenities of a private campground, such as playgrounds, sports, and a dog park. Spend the night at an RV or tent site, in a furnished cabin or yurt, or in a rustic three-sided shelter.

Wompatuck State Park

204 Union St., Hingham


Popular for mountain biking and easy access to Boston and Nantasket Beach, this park offers 12 miles of paved bike trails, a network of multi-use and bridle trails, fishing and boating (car-top boats only) in an on-site reservoir, and the Mount Blue Spring, where people bring jugs to collect fresh drinking water. There is no swimming. Sites accommodate RVs and tents.
