“minutes away, worlds apart”
As the largest recreational open space in eastern Massachusetts, the Boston Harbor Islands offer a wide variety of fun activities and once in a lifetime opportunities. Whether this is your first trip or your 100th, all are welcome and there is always something new for you to do. Each of the 34 Boston Harbor Islands has a rich human history. We invite you to learn more about the stories, people, places, and objects associated with each island, and with the overall island system. The Boston Harbor Islands offers primitive service camping within sight of downtown Boston on 4 different islands - Peddocks, Bumpkin, Grape and Lovells. While you are camping, you can see the sunrise over the harbor and experience the islands in a whole new light. This rustic camping adventure offers a unique experience and may also require additional planning. On the islands there are composting toilets only, no showers, no supplies and access to fresh water is only available on Peddocks Island. Campers must bring one gallon of water per person per day. Please plan to carry it all in and carry it all out.The camping season generally runs from the end of June through Labor Day weekend. Reservations are required and can be made through ReserveAmerica. Individual campsites accomodate 4 adults or 2 adults and their dependent children and group sites are available for larger parties. One night reservations are accepted. Island access is by private boat or ferry service only. Please see additional details about the ferry service below.Resident staff live on the island during the visiting season and provide island supervision, park and campground management as well as offer island tours and educational programs.
