You don’t have to go far to have a remote camping experience. In fact, all you need to do is hop on a ferry.
Three of the Boston Harbor islands, Grape, Bumpkin, and Lovells, allow overnight camping. The camping experience is a rural one — no toilets, showers, fresh water, electricity or telephones. Campers must also bring their own food and water.
Per-night camping fees start at $6 for state residents. Reservations are required.
