Minuteman Campground – Littleton, MA


We’ve been waiting to give Minuteman Campground a try for quite a while. We got lucky. A last minute call paid off and we reserved a full hook-up pull-thru site for an August weekend.

Minuteman Campground is conveniently located on MA Route 2A, about 3 miles west of I-495 (exit 30) in Littleton, Massachusetts. The campground entrance is easy to spot. The bright green sign at the entrance (just past the Citgo station) welcomes you up a short drive to the campground office. Check-in was quick and the staff was friendly and accommodating. They also guide you right to your site.

The property is located entirely in a pine and mixed hardwood forest. If you’re looking for a cool respite from the summer’s heat, this is the place. It’s so wooded in fact that you’re sometimes unaware of a sunny day. Interior roads are gravel, somewhat narrow, and wind up and down moderate grades… larger rigs can navigate throughout the campground but it can get a little tight in some places.

This appears to the an older, well established campground. It’s clean, well maintained and most of the sites are comfortably large. There are several full hook-up pull-thru sites for larger rigs. Sites are fairly level, but you will need to work at it a bit when you set up.

I wouldn’t say that the facilities are squeaky clean, but they are more than acceptable. The restrooms and showers are reasonably maintained. Showers are free, and the water is always hot. The campground runs smoothly. While there were quite a few kids when we were there, it was still a quiet, peaceful stay. Pets are also allowed here and their owners were respectful of the rules and of other campers.

Minuteman Campground has a nice little campstore with a good selection of groceries, camping supplies and souvenirs. The store had an impressive selection of free VHS movie rentals with over 400 titles to choose from! There were a few DVD choices as well. If you are looking for some reading material they have free books for the taking or you can leave some you’ve read for other campers. They have a free modem hook-up in the recreation hall and plan on installing Wi-Fi throughout the campground in the future.

Amenities include a good size heated pool, a small children’s playground, paved half-court basketball, volleyball, horseshoe pits, and a rec room that includes 5 or 6 video games. Seasonal sites seem to be few and far between and, unlike most campgrounds we’ve visited, they are hard to spot because they don’t have the typical wood decks, painted stones and twirling windmills. They also have several one and two-room “Kamping Kabins” complete with a comfortable porch swing. Single room kabins sleep 4 while the double room kabins sleep 6. Kabins have both heat and air conditioning.

While we’ve been told that there’s a RV supply store and several fast food restaurants “just down the road”, we only saw one restaurant within walking distance. Also, there is a Dunkin Donuts shop located in a service station near the campground entrance, but that’s about it.

This campground is also a great location to base your exploration of the region. It’s convenient to Boston and Southern New Hampshire. A short drive away you’ll find horseback riding, a large mini golf course, bumper boats and a driving range.

Minuteman Campground is cozy, clean, quiet and reasonably priced. Good Sam and AAA members also get a 10% discount!


  1. We just spent the last 5 nights at this great place. Our site was 50 amp full hook-up but we were thrilled to find that so many of the sites, including ours, had a true “tent camping” feel (even for the large campers). The staff was professional, friendly and helpful. It’s unbelievably quiet and clean even though the place was full. We’ll definitely return. There is so much to see in the area. Thanks for a great stay!

  2. Minuteman campground is our favorite campground especially for a long weekend. We have stayed here for the last six years. Our favorite sites are the back ones looking into the forest and the sites near the field. The owners are wonderful and always accomodating and especially helpful guiding us into a site with a trailer. The campground is well maintained and the pool and bathrooms are clean. My husband and I feel very comfortable and safe and feel like we belong. We look forward to camping every Memorial Day and Labor Day weekend when Joy the clown puts on a magic show for everyone. All I can say is that we love this campground and look forward to our next visit!

  3. This is the worst campground we have stayed in 43 States. We stayed for 3 nights June 2010. They have an unfriendly staff, dirt (or mud when it rains) pads and bad ant problems. I cannot believe this is a Good Sams Campground. In my opinion you should stay somewhere else even I it means driving further into Boston.

  4. Nice place… a good friend suggested the site to me last year and I have no regrets. The place and personnel was incredible. Cool amenities just right for family camping. You’ll never now that it one of the oldest campsites there is. If you are looking for a place like home I think this is the one.

  5. We camped there in October 2009 and it was fantastic. There is WiFi throughout the park now. We have reservations to return in July and again in September. There is a great place to pick apples nearby.

  6. This campground is beautiful and looks serene. If given a chance, I would be choosing this campground and will be introducing this to my friends. Though I just saw these picture, it is more than enough for me to conclude that the place is good.

  7. I went through this area on my last trip. I checked them out. They have a first rate facility. I will keep them of places to stay.
    Thanks for turning me on to them.
