This was not a bad place to stay for touring Salem, Boston and Concord. The sites were small but for the amount of time we spent in the park it was okay and all the neighbors we encountered were friendly. The electric hook ups were behind us and you had 2 sites together on the electric box so one would have to have a super long electic cord. The water was like the last reviewer said behind the camper hanging along the fence. There was a lighthouse, and day use beach with wonderful views of the water. The bathrooms were a concern when we got there and wasn't sure how it was going to be sharing them with the beach people and all the other campers but never saw anybody in the shower when we went and they were always clean. We did experience a lot of rain on the 4th and had about an inch of standing water on the ground but it wasn't a problem. We never did use the dump facilites that were at the sewer plant so can't comment on them but that was probably the biggest drawback of the park. Would probably stay here again though if in the area. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.

Being the closest park to Boston, it's just an OK park, nothing fancy at all. We were only able to get a 30 amp spot for 2 of our 3 days there. Had to move on the third night. Bear in mind that this is an old military facility that has been abandoned and now turned into a public boat launch, and a 50+ vehicle day use parking area. An RV parking facility with RV spots lined around the perimeter of the parking area, as well as having turned an additional empty field into RV parking. Your water supply is an above ground 1 1/4" ABS plastic line strapped to the 8 inch timbers around the perimeter or tied to a cyclone fence. The "store" has basically nothing of any use unless you need a soda or charcoal briquets. Check in Staff was there and emotionless. There are no sewer connections at any of the sites, nor is there any sewage dump on site. They send you offsite about a mile away to the Salem Sewage Treatment Facility to dump. We went there only to find that you have to drive up to the fence, pick up the phone, and call someone to let you in. The entry is a single lane entry angled at a 45 degree angle opposite the way you come from the campground. So if you have a large unit, you have to drive into Salem, turn around, then enter the facility. When you leave, you have to do the opposite, drive through Salem, turn around, then back to the park. Huge hassle. Overall, if we had a choice, we would stay elsewhere. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.

We enjoyed staying at Winter Island. It is a great choice if you want to explore Salem and Boston. We had a 30 amp waterfront site which had a lovely view of the harbor. In general, the campground was peaceful but be aware that it has a launch ramp and the boats are launched starting at 5:30 am. Also, the park has many public functions taking place at the pavilion and function hall. On Friday evening, a graduation party took place at the function hall which is at the end of the 30 amp waterfront sites. It was very loud and the party guests did not stay at the hall but walked through, around and into our site and we were parked four campsites away from the party. The campers at the closet site were very unhappy. Fortunately, the hall was only used one evening and the functions on Sat and Sun were lower key and over by 6 pm. It is very easy to bike to the historic sites of Salem. The House of the Seven Gables is only 1.4 miles from the campground. They also have kayaks rentals on site and a lovely small "Waikiki" beach. We enjoyed the lighthouse just off the parking lot and poking around Fort Pickering. One of our fellow campers did have a problem with a skunk that ate all the corn they left out overnight. The 30 amp power was not that strong. (ie: you can't run a microwave and anything else.) The Verizon service worked well. We hope to visit again in the future. We camped here in a Motorhome.
