    Boston: Harold Parker State Forest

    Boston hangers: just a heads up to check out Harold Parker State Forest. The campground is empty this time of year and has some perfect hanging spots. So close to the city too! Great for a S24O.

    Thanks Arbitrage for the information.
    Are you at Lorraine Park Campground within Harold Parker State Forest?
    I only ask because the Mass.gov website specifies May-Sept camping (see below).
    Could you clarify if this campground is open year round? If so, I have family in that area that would love to get in some winter camping.

    ===> I have hung there a lot. I believe that the campground itself is closed for the winter. Stealth hanging? Maybe.

    Most likely "IN" if you folks put something together...we had a blast there.

    I know in NH and VT you are allowed to use the State Parks while closed. NH asks you to make a donation in a drop box. I have not done this yet though...just read about it on the website. Maybe MA has similar rules?
    If it moves, you can eat it. No promises you will think it tastes good.

    ===> I should be (hopefully) free that weekend, Jerry! My SIL should be too. Maybe we can find a place to hang in NH someplace for a change. Let's keep in touch. Would love to take my new RidgeRunner down into lower temps! And try out my new hammock sock.
