Explore Bumpkin Island
Small and picturesque, Bumpkin Island was home to American Indians, a fish-drying operation, tenant farmers, a naval training camp, polio patients, and more. Now it’s a quiet camping destination, with ten smaller campsites (max. capacity 4 each) and one group campsite (max. capacity 25). Its slate and shell beaches and open areas make Bumpkin a relaxing place to wander. Walk trails lined with wildflowers. Explore the remains of a stone farmhouse and children’s hospital. Watch the sun rise from your campsite.
When visiting this island travel direct from Hingham or Hull, or take a connecting ferry from Georges (summer only).
