Hubby and I walked from the Wharf to this park. Enjoyed the views. Has two rocky beaches, tons of camping and a general store. Views and kite flying are excellent

Great little place to stop have a picnic, read a book or just watch the boast sail by. A walk down to the lighthouse is good too.

Been coming to Salem for years and had heard about Winter Park but was unable to make time. Finally got down there this year and man!! What a cool place. Great popcorn stand with REAL popcorn with (gulp) REAL butter!! Parking is a challenge but the view is great!

Learned about this place while on a trolley tour so we came back for a closer look. Beautiful views from the beach. One of the camp sites is actually the site of the last public execution. Fort Pickering is also located on Winter island and is worth a visit.

Have camped here several times while visiting Salem. Close to downtown and convienient trolly service if you do not mind the view of the power plant. the place has really been suffering from neglect over the years

Great for camping & the view of the sunsets are amazing! The only dislike that I can think of is that they don't have sewer hookups but is no problem as the plant is down the road to dump

This is a lovely stretch of land that offers magnificent views, cooling breezes, and the illusion that you are far, far away from everything, when you are really in the heart of a metropolitan area. It is a great place for nature watching and a picnic; well worth the trip.

Pretty marina area with a great overview on the other side across the bridge to Beverly, MA. The camping area is small, but clean looking. Lots of boats are docked there.

We booked a spot for our 21 foot travel trailer a few months ago for Columbus Day Weekend. Easy check-in and friendly staff. SMALL spaces. About 15 feet. If you have a camper with slide-outs, it's going to be TIGHT!!! Good water pressure and safari field was nicely maintained. Dumpsters not marked on map, so we left our large bag... More

Winter Island has it all for the traveler. We camped in October which was a little cold but they have wonderful showers. You can't beat the view from the Island and the stories you hear there are frightfully fun. Great camping for the entire family.
