Beach was nothing but rocks - no sand at all. Facilities were ok - clean at least. Not sure I would go back but had a good time with family.

Via kayak or boat - or when the tide is super low you can walk - a visit to this harbor island is just plan fun!

Overseen by the State of Massachusetts, u can reserve campgrounds on several,of the Boston Harbor Islands. There are decent sanitary facilities provided and some nice trails, from which you might see deer, turkeys, pheasants and even coyotes, so keep your foodstuffs safely tucked away. You can set up tents on the campsites and have magnificent views of Boston as well... More

The boat will take you to this picturesque island where you can spend to day exploring, picnic or even camp out! It's a great family place.

An interesting place to visit, fish from and walk out on the sand spit at low tide. There are even prehistoric horseshoe crabs on the spit sometimes--don't touch them!!!!

My husband and I just returned from a 2 night camping trip on Bumpkin Island; we had such a great time! We took the ferry from Hingham Shipyard ($14 round trip/person plus $1/day for parking) and arrived on the island early afternoon. The two rangers, Max and Kimm, were on the dock to meet us. They gave us a map... More

I toured the islands on the ferry last summer and it was great. This Memorial Day, we rented sea kayaks instead and setting off from Hingham, we paddled over to Slate Island, ate lunch (Slate is not too user-friendly). After lunch, we paddled accross the channel, avoiding some bigger boats. The weather was cool, overcast, and cloudy, so the seas... More
