Camping fees

A round-up of camping fees for Massachusetts state parks

Contact ReserveAmerica to make a reservation. Here's how to change/cancel a reservation today or change/cancel a reservation in advance.

There is a $4.50 non-refundable transaction charge for each reservation made. Cancellations and changes will incur a $10 charge. Changes and cancellations can be made online or by calling Customer Service at 877-620-2267.

Day of arrival cancellations require a phone call to the campground and will result in the loss of the first night's camping fee, plus the $10 cancellation fee. Reserved campsites will be held until 8:00 am on the day after your scheduled arrival date. If we are not contacted, your reservation will be no-showed resulting in cancellation of your reservation and no refunds will be issued.

You must buy firewood at the park.  Please note that firewood sales are by credit card only.  Effective 2021, the cost is $7 per bundle
