Making Reservations

Beginning the last weekend in June through Labor Day (usually the first weekend in September) and for Columbus Day arriving on a Friday requires paying for a minimum of 3 nights and arriving on a Saturday requires paying for a minimum of 2 nights.  This allows campers to leave anytime they like on Sunday or by 11am on Monday.

Unless you are staying with us for the entire season, we do not guarantee a specific site number.  On our reservation form you will be allowed to choose your first choice of sites off the map and can list in the requests/comments any other choices but we do not guarantee one site specifically.  We reserve the right to change site numbers based on the equipment you are reserving for!

Site rates are based on 2 people with one piece of camping equipment and one vehicle.  If you have additional people arriving in an additional vehicle and setting up additional equipment then you must rent an additional site.  Making reservations for sites ahead of time ensures sites being together.  If you arrive your day of check in with additional people/cars/equipment you may be required to rent an additional site that is not near your original reserved site.  Please plan ahead to avoid sites not being together.  All site rentals are subject to minimum stay requirements.

Length of Stay

We have a two week maximum on lengths of stay unless you are seasonal at our park.  We have an extensive waiting list for seasonal sites at this time.  You are welcome to call our office at 978-283-8683 with any questions but we have a set number of seasonal sites and keep the rest of our sites for those visiting the beautiful Cape Ann Area.
