Cape Cod National Seashore and Area Campgrounds – Massachusetts
Here’s the recipe for an unforgettable autumn camping excursion—pick up a Boston area RV rental and then head southeast through Plymouth and Barnstable to Cape Cod. The National Parks Service has preserved forty thousand acres of Atlantic shoreline, marshes and dunes, as well as an entire guidebook full of historic sites, for RV campers to enjoy.
It may be too chilly to swim in early autumn, but you’ll be blessed with uncrowded trail and beach hikes and views of more than a dozen Cape Cod lighthouses. No camping facilities within the Cape’s boundaries, but, lucky for you, we’ve gathered information on Cape Cod area campgrounds to help you plan.
From Cape Cod to Narragansett,
the crowds have gone home and left peace and quiet for autumn RV campers to enjoy. Pack your own RV or pick up a convenient motorhome rental near your destination. Either way, it’s time to head east to discover the joys of autumn East Coast camping.
