Make your way down to the pier on Nut Island, a favorite spot for fishing and fabulous views.
Out of an abundance of caution due to the spread of COVID-19 in Massachusetts, DCR has announced the temporary suspension of camping, pavilion and picnic area reservations, until April 6, 2020, at which time DCR will reassess circumstances. Thank you.
With beautiful views of harbor vistas and easy bike and car access, this little peninsula is ideal for a day spent by the sea. Previously used by colonists to graze cattle, Nut Island now works in conjunction with Deer Island Wastewater Treatment Plant and is a popular fishing destination. Enjoy the ocean breeze while at the pier, take a walk, or spend some quiet time fishing.
