Great information. Thanks everyone for your posts.
We want to do a whale watching boat tour while we're there.
Any suggestions?

Interested in this thread also for our trip to Boston.

Which CG within walking distance (we don't have a toad) for quick transport to DT Boston? Doesn't have to be upmarket or tons of amenities just somewhere safe to sleep at night = bit like ease of access for NYC from Liberty Harbour in NJ set up would work.

Thanks, FTW


A few weeks ago we booked 14 days for the middle of May. We originally looked at Normandy Farms but they didn't have any full hookup sites available for that length of stay.
Just a suggestion, I would book well in advance. This obviously is a busy tourist destination. Weekends are booked well in advance.

Two of my recommendations for your consideration are: "Old Sturbridge Village" in Sturbridge, Mass and "Battleship Cove" in Fall River, Mass.

I went to their websites. Looks very interesting. I'll add it to the list.
Thanks for the recommendations.

Thanks for the heads up Gramps, and I'm sure you'll have a blast on your trip. We are planning on September after schools back in, and also we are 100% off grid independent for up to 3 weeks on tanks and ample solar. We can handle dry camping, just want somewhere close to commute into Boston and safe to park overnight for 3 or 4 nights tops, purely to access Boston. Everywhere else we've got covered on spreadsheet, but Boston accessibility is proving to be a bit of a doozie for us, based on advisories not to drive into, and CG's so far away it appears.

PS: We're doing a 6 to 7 month West to East coast Newfoundland/Lab trip, starting end Apr, then dropping down to Boston/RI and across and up the lakes on the USA side coming back.

Cape Cod - Provincetown is "eclectic",

I'll be a little more descriptive than "electic"-lots of alternative lifestyles. If that type of thing makes you uncomfortable it might not be the place for you. That said it's a wonderful place for sampling New England at it's finest. Shops, restaurants, artists and great people watching. Visit the Pilgrim Monument, Race Point light house and of course, some of the most beautiful beaches anywhere.

FULLTIMEWANABE you’ll love Newfoundland and Labrador. We were there last year. The friendliest people you will find anywhere. Lots of wildlife and beautiful scenery.
I know the KOA is a short drive to the train station. You could take a taxi but it’s too far to walk. Not sure if there are any campgrounds close enough to walk.

Thanks for the information Crowe.
