A great escape in Salem

It's a fun place with lots of places for picnicking and camping. There's a nice waterfront and some great places to wander around as well as a great lighthouse to check out.

Great park with onsite camping (did not camp but would like to get back and spend a weekend). Has a boat launch if needed. Like the old fort, ammo bunker and hanger a lot. Easily hike able/bike able from downtown salem.

It was beautiful and peaceful. I enjoyed looking out at the lighthouse and the water. It was so serene, I didn't want to leave!

We wanted to visit Boston as part of our trip to the east coast. Ferry service (or train service) from Salem to Boston is exceptional and Winter Island is VERY VERY CLOSE. Though it... More

I love this place for camping or just a day by the water. Best campground in Winter Island is they call the Igloo site cause it's the only place allows a camp fire. They have a nice little store there to buy drinks, more or even more fire wood

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.
