Fourth Cliff Family Recreation Center

We stayed a week at Fourth Cliff Family Recreation Center in Massachusetts. This was the first of 3 military parks we will be staying at this month. In short we had a really great week but we would probably not visit again.  There isn’t much to do here other than the beach and this location is in need of some updating. 20170910_133551

Cost: $35 a night for electric, sewer, water, cable, and internet. $15 for no hookup campsites.

Pros:
-Beautiful views of the water.
-Great cable and internet.
-Our highlight was exploring during the extreme low tides and finding different sea creatures. Crabs, snails, hermit crabs, starfish, shrimp, and small fish can easily be spotted around the rocks. IMG_20170909_195313
– Laundry available in building #6 $2.50 to wash and $2.50 to dry.
– Fire pits on the beach (none at campsites)
– Sounds of waves crashing while you sleep.
-Beautiful sunsets and sunrises.

Cons:
-Several rv spots are no longer in use because of beach/road corrosion.
-Some of the rv spots have the hookups on the wrong side.
-The bathrooms were dirty and full of spider webs. Note: we don’t use the bathrooms (I prefer using our rv) but I always check them for a review. I checked twice in a 3 days span and noticed the same trash was on the floor, no paper towels, ect.
– No security. Gate is wide open for anyone to come through. No id check. They only asked for id when we checked in for our site.
– No pool or park for the kids.
-Small campsites. We got lucky not having neighbors most of the week so the kids had room to play and ride their bikes but if someone would have been there it would have been tight quarters.

Things to do nearby:

Scituate Lighthouse: 25 minutes awayIMG_20170913_121002
Town of Scituate: If you are already visiting the light house I also recommend walking around the town of Scituate. Several cute shops and restaurants.
Boston: About an hour or two away depending on traffic.IMG_20170913_120655
