REVIEWS OF Winter Island/Waikiki Beach IN Massachusetts

Jeannette Leigh

This has been an awesome experience. If you love history and the ocean this is your spot. Don’t expect a traditional camping experience with lots of privacy but do expect a once in a lifetime experience. We are so happy we did this trip. We had site 13 at ocean front and it’s been an an amazing 5 days. So close to everything. The ferry to Boston was worth every penny and so close. Enjoy!


The natural beauty of this park takes your breath away. I sat by the lighthouse and watched the tide come in. It's a wonderful place to test out your photography skills. Just stunning!!!

Bryn Dews

We love the boat ramp here. The park is very nice too... Good for large gatherings, family picnics, etc. Staff are very friendly and helpful.

Katie Stuempfle

I never knew this place existed! This is a hit with the locals. There is lots of waterfront area for campers and tents as well as day trips. We saw tons of picnics and families set up to spend the day. Fort Pickering is also located here. It is a bit hidden and overgrown but you will find a few informational signs about its history.

It is not a great beach. May be good for campers. But not for people visiting for a few hours. Has a small stretch of sand beach and a kids play area and lot of picnic tables. Parking was steep at $15.

Liam 21

It is a very nice place for keeping a boat and has a fair price too.

Really pretty beach with adjoining campground sites. We came around sunset, so it was free to come in. Equipped with showers, pretty views.

joe pelletier

Go there for the scenery

Robert Winters

Rock hunters dream

Ricardo Caivano

Great little cove looking towards Salem Sound.

Leslie Breton

Nice, small beach. Little Rocky, so make sure your littles wear water shoes. I did find some broken glass the other day, so keep your eyes open.


Camping in RV here. No sewer hook-ups, water and electric. Has a beach area and picnic tables. Has one building with bathroom and shower. Two stalls for showers and toliets in women side for the whole park. Had a party on the pavilion today and we had a line for the bathroom 5 deep when I was there. Park should have separate bathroom facilities for campers. Was here on the weekend and had to wait till after 11 pm to take shower.

Kenny Mcauliffe

.nice and quiet over there good place to go and relax in the summertime hey sit down on you beach chair maybe you can take a dip

David Vitello

Great trails to walk on. Great beach for family's and they have camping

Jay Houston

Loved this little hidden spot just outside the Salem Willows.. Hard to comment on the cleanliness because we went off peak season just after the snow thawed.. Looked like they've got a bathroom building that would be very convenient

tom kneipper

Great place to dip your toes in the ocean.

We spent a few hours here during low tide and had fun looking at all the crabs and wildlife in the tide pools. Cute park - great for an afternoon picnic.

chuck Collins

It feels like an island camping trip without a boat ride.

Hillary Sanborn

Beautiful spot with a lot of history, and plaques to tell the story. There are also bunkers left behind from the days of war, and you can feel the silent tension radiating from them.

SGP Versluis

Serene plot on the edge of winter Island. Nice to listen to the water hitting the

M Harrison

Small but beautiful beach.

Tenzing Jamyangling

Great place to bring kids. There's places to barbeque and swim. It's also a nice spot to have a picnic with the view of the ocean and lighthouse.

Jim Silva

Great RV spot!

Sherry Devine

This is the best place around

Jack H

It's like a hidden treasure in a great New England city.

Tami Stephenson

Very beautiful

Michael Anthony

Coming from Michigan where our beaches are kept very highly during the season, it was a tad disappointing seeing the conditions here. Nothing to extraordinary about the location.

Ruby Mercy

Very cool place to visit

Dana Diefenbach

Awesome private beach and a great place to go camping

Marshall Klaus

So much to see and appreciate in a relatively small area. A great place to get a feel for the ocean without fighting traffic out to the beaches.

Ravi Yelleswarapu

The sunrise from here is beautiful. You can either drive up and park, but I chose to run and it was a nice trail. The entire area has beautiful sunrises but this was my favorite and it seemed like there were a lot of people parking nearby.

Jeff Burns

Small beach, but nice at high tide. Very shallow and rocky at low tide. Beautiful views. Bring watershoes- lots of shells/rocks. Ruins of old fort interesting. A cool and very local place.

Tim O'Neill

The beach is great for kids, wide and rocky. Interesting hiking paths that show off the natural and historical (old fort) splendor. Large, unique playground. Nice bathrooms, with spray shower and water available. I've never camped here, but it looks great. Parking is $15 in summer, which might last longer than you might think.

Bridget Lalonde

Great views cool camping grounds, exclusive

Moon River

Basic lots, not very private, but the rest of winter island makes up for it, beautiful views and friendly staff.

Amreen Rafique

The view is beautiful.The vegetation around is over grown and needs attention.Nice place for picnics.

J Roy

Very scenic and peaceful spot!

Be the mermaid

Very friendly staff. It has the basics. Waterfront camping is a parking lot but there's plenty of camping spaces in the back on the grass. Beautiful beach and paths to walk.

Robert Metcalfe

Great park was at the hall for a party and had a great time

Scott Feldkamp

Be adventerous climb the rocks.

Robin Matarazzo

It’s very pretty & my kids loved it

Tanguy Bruyninx

Very nice campground, the staff was helpful and very nice. It has a nice view on the sea and for a fair rate it is fairly close to the city Would go back again

Trinity Snowberger

Amazing place to stay with an amazing view if the ocean. Gorgeous sun rise and sunsets.

Antonio Leon

This place could be much better than it is. The place is great but the City of Salem should invest to improve it a bit.

Dash Riprock

Grew up here... relatively quiet. Depends on amount of campers or summer camp field trips.

Jon Arnold

Nice area. Lighthouse was smaller than expected, but a good setup. Decent area to relax, camping nearby was surprising but good to know.

Leigh Tribuno

Great for kids

Sean Riley

Very cool place to visit!

Andrea Patterson

A lot of fun. Not too busy, really nice.

Dhulipala Somayajulu

A rocky beach that is very interesting in itself. Filled with a lot of American history. You might be disappointed if you come here expecting a fresh Sandy Beach.

Adam Sprague

Clean, friendly. Helpful staff, walk to attractions in Salem.

Ludger Boecken

Awesome afternoon, we have not seen any place at the Upper east Coast shoreline before. Loved the rocks, the lighthouse and all those boats out there. Great seafood shack with benches to sit outside, th kids climbed in a huge old tree, and the homemade ice cream was one of a kind. Despite coming on a Sunday we did not feel the peninsula was overcrowded! You can spend hours here, taking pictures, climbing rocks and just relaxing and keep your eyes out to the horizon above the dark blue sea.

Popeye Kahn

It's a beautiful view but like most things, better from the water!

dreamer alcantara

A wonderful and beautiful place is amazing because i can relax.

W. P.

Lovely view, quiet, nice little beach. The spots close to the water are in a parking lot. Water and electric only, WiFi is good. They also have a nice Green space for camping too and the gate locks at night. There is very old public bathrooms, nothing fancy, no hooks to hang a towel or bathroom bag. Chilly as you get into the fall. A tour bus drives thru here often with tourists, and the park is busy with locals. At night it is dark. Very little lighting in the parking area.

J falk

It's nice going there. Perfect little place to walk around

Edward Vick

A great place to camp walking trails history along the trail boating great place

Tamika Mayes

Its clean and there is a lot to do over there.

Gabriel Gualteros

If you're in Salem you need to stop by winter Island a great location for camping RV and of course enjoying the beautiful area beaches and campsites parking can sometimes be limited by the time of year and events going on a great place to put your kayak in the water or your boat as they have a great ramp a Harbor Master does a great job the staff they're very attentive picnic tables grills bathrooms enjoy your stay pick up after yourself and remember to say thank you

Nathan Rasmussen

It's a beautiful park. Not a lot to do and they charge you $10 just to park. Luckily they told us we can go really quick to check it out and not pay.

Brenda Jenkot

Great camping

Daria Emmel

My family has come here my whole life, it is our absolute favorite vacation spot. It is so relaxing camping so close to the ocean. It has wonderful views of the ocean everywhere, nice trails, beautiful beach and light house. My favorite is watching and the boats and ships in the ocean. We just can't get enough of this place (plus Salem of course).

Douglas Smith

Doran Wentzell

Lots to see and explore.

Pankaj Joshi

that's awesome it's a great feeling for me

Sharmin Davis

Went here to pass the time until the Salem Witch Museum opened. It was the first time my kids got to experience the ocean, they loved watching the boats. Enjoyed the tide pools with crabs, snails, clams. Even though the water was cold we even waded in the water. It was beautiful and stunning! I wanted to see a lighthouse and my husband found this one, so very glad he did, we have an amazing memory from there!

Brooke Johnson

I loved it! It was beautiful!

Gina Davidson


Cattibrie Robinson

I loved this place because you could do so much there was a camp sight and at the camp sight there was a playground!

Tim Butcher

Nice park

Jan Hart

Finally a beach day. Small beach. Feels almost private. Facilities available. Even showers.

Sherry Vacek

Beautiful Beaches and The Salem Lighthouse clean restroom great views from Fort Lee harbor walk and a fun camp out spot as well.

Max Berger

Great campground really close to the beach, only downside: the tent sites are right next to the road that leads to the boat ramp so lots of traffic.

Merrily Haas

A nice Sandy Beach on one side and just across the peninsula a small gravel and rock beach. Easy access, great views. A restroom with showers and changing area. Seems like a popular area. There is a $15 parking charge. More if you a launching a boat.

Sam Guertin

Great views and beach, very open camp ground.

Darla Vanhorn

Great view, expensive to park for a short time.

Calvin R

Camping super close to downtown Salem. Would have been 5 star but there is no dump station here and the one they send you to is horrible! The receptacle is so far off the ground you can only get part of your tank emptied. The power also went out for 2 days while I was here, but I will give them a break on that since the winds were crazy!

Monstarr -

Nice little beach. Not very busy with people.


Beautiful views from the top of the island great place to have a picnic relax with the family play with the kids and walk the trails

Garry Sager

Lots of fun, beautiful views


Beautiful beach nice and quiet

Bob Trousdell

Relaxing and beautiful

Heather Barnes

Fantastic views of the harbor and a really nice place to watch the sunrise.

Richard Kulesza

Pretty park and quiet.

Chris Dowgin

Great old 1600 hill fort.

Susan Souza

Very enjoyable, uncrowded, camp, Rv-ing options. Small beach on site, with bathrooms near by, large park to walk about, water access and views. Would definetaly park my RV here and drop my boat in for the weekend. But also great just for site seeing and a stroll or a beach day!

Yesenia Mariscal

The place is different from 20yrs ago. However we enjoyed ourselves, exactly the way we wanted too.

Dawn Bizzarro

Small but pleasant. Bathrooms. Quiet during week. Can get crowded with the visitor camping. Need a sticker or pay to park

weirdo rodriguez

Beautiful beach

Liselle Krac

A sad park with great potential. The state has a poorly run point that is very scenic. The buildings that are neglected, are just that. There is so much that could be done with this location. Just need some of this...$$$ There is a camp ground here and it's quite expensive to just investigate the park without planning to sit on the beach. It was $10 during the week/ 15 on weekends. Plan to bring lunch and it's a great place to bring kids who want to explore the old ammunition bunkers

Isaac Davila Photography

Great place to visit but during summer get ready to pay to get in and its even more expensive when you are not from town. Great views around the Salem Harbor.

Emily James

Such a beautiful place and so clean! Got to live by the dock life and get a good look at some neat boats! It was so relaxing to sleep so close to the water. Day or night is so scenic and my dog and I explored the trails every morning and night! The beached area was the cherry on top. Had a great time exploring the island and getting to explore salem. It was also convenient access for us to enjoy boston but still come back to some electric hookups! 20 minute train ride and 15 minute bike ride to station. Very quiet, friendly place for us while we were on the road. The staff is super respectful and hardworking as well. They were so helpful with everything when we wanted to stay another night for Boston. I would definitely come back if I had the chance!

Kenny Lear

Great place to go for a walk. Weather was great. For a winter weather this was enough hike for me.

Laurie Stanley

We had a great stay at Winter Island. Although it’s not a traditional style campground; more of a parking lot for RV’s with strategically placed tent sites in amongst the trees/shrubs. The only down side was that they charged us a $20 refundable deposit for a pass key to open the gate after 10pm. That wouldn’t have been a problem had the gate actually been closed between 10pm-8am. Unfortunately, the gate was never closed the 3 nights we were there, and cars entering and leaving between 11:30pm and 3:30 am. We found this a bit unnerving and disruptive to our sleep and sense of security.
