Boston Minuteman Campground
Here at ATVA, we appreciate history. Boston Minuteman Campground is located 30 miles northwest of Boston, where reminders of our nation’s history are around every corner. It’s possible to camp just outside of the city and visitors can spend a few days exploring Massachusetts’ largest city.
Boston Minuteman Campground has electric hookups, picnic tables, fire pits, and Wi-Fi service. It also has a camp store, recreation center, bocce, and free movie library. This family-friendly campground is only ten miles west of the Minute Man National Historical Park, and close to the state capital of Boston.
Cape Ann Camp Site
The Cape Ann Camp Site in Gloucester is a hidden gem. Guests have their choice of electric and water RV sites in either the regular area of their campground or in the upper wooded area of their campground. Visitors need to make a reservation because the sites fill up fast. Campers should ask for a big rig site if their RV is over 32 feet. This campground is also close to local beaches, a boating area, and deep-sea fishing boat rentals.
