With thousands of acres of forest, and hundreds of ponds, Plymouth is the ideal destination for campers and outdoor enthusiasts.  And what better way to enjoy the outdoors than to camp out under the stars?

Myles Standish State Forest
Myles Standish State Forest, the largest publicly owned recreation area in the region, offers five camping areas. All are beautifully maintained and are tucked into the forest or set along the edges of four of the park's 16 ponds. A section of the Charge Pond area is set aside specifically for horse camping.

The park's main entrance is on Cranberry Road in Carver. The east entrance is on Long Pond Road in Plymouth. (click here for map)
