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.
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.
