Boston Harbor Islands CampgroundThe Boston Harbor Islands are less than an hour's ferry ride from downtown Boston. This national park area has campsites on four of 30 harbor islands and accessible to the public via passenger ferry service or private boat. Camping is available on Lovells, Peddocks, Grape and Bumpkin Islands and reservations are required. The four island campgrounds have no water for flush toilets (composting only), showers or drinking but offer a great primitive experience within sight of the Boston skyline. Interpretive tours and public safety is facilitated by at least two island rangers 24 hours a day. The Park`s waterways are patrolled by local, state and federal enforcement/emergency response authorities.
One night minimum stays are accepted.
