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 panoramic views of the Boston Harbor and an accessible lifeguarded beach, Spectacle Island is ideal for outdoor adventures or a relaxing day by the sea. Over the years, Spectacle Island has served several purposes, from supporting farming to housing resort hotels. It now functions as a park for the public to explore. Enjoy a day of hiking, listen to the sweet sounds of a jazz concert, or take in the breathtaking views from the top of North Drumlin.
