Winter Island Park – Salem, MA
If you like camping in a parking lot, Winter Island Park is your place to go! It is in located Salem, Massachusetts, and they charge alot! This was originally a Coast Guard post, and still looks like it, minus the campground atmosphere. When we finally found it, we came to a guard house… then we finally found the office, which is in the back of the armory, the people are nice, but don’t seem to be very knowledgeable! They each say you need to talk to another person to get any answers. Then they had us park in a camping spot, in the parking lot… that was our site! If you get there when fishermen are trying to load their boat into the ocean, you are asked to move.
We didn’t have any room for our slide outs, so don’t even think you can use them along with an awning. And don’t worry about dog poop, you couldn’t even distinguish it from all the goose poop everywhere. Then there is the noise from the electric plant next door. When we were done camping, we had to drive a mile down the road, back into town to get your septic tanks dumped at the City Sewer plant.
We had a very bad experience at this campground.
