Massachusetts - Hingham - Wompatuck State Park (2 photos) / by Dave Hileman

We chose this park for its proximity to Boston and access to the ferry system. It turned out to be an excellent choice for several reasons. First, the park was priced fairly, about $27 a day for out-of-state with electric and water. I really liked the electric stations that were lit at night and had holders to keep the cord off the ground. (it was also easy to see for those of us with poor back up syndrome!) The site we had in the first loop on the right was D007. It was level, had a nice table and fire ring and the site was well spaced with lots of trees. We were about a 10 minute drive from the ferry terminal and since we were going to the NP on a weekend parking was free and the ferry - $15 to Boston. It is fast and convenient. We went first to the Boston Islands NRA, specifically Fort Warren. The second leg was from the island to the dock in Boston. There we spent a day seeing the African American Park and Revere’s house. We also had dinner, dessert and a great walk. Hingham is the home of Talbots, so, just a note you can shop in the original 1948 store and they they have a factory tour which we missed but one of us is a big Talbots fan so when we come back, not only is that on the agenda but we will stay at Wompatuck.
