On the banks of the Cape Cod Canal near Buzzards Bay, the Bourne Scenic Park Campground is a family-friendly RV park in Massachusetts. The Cape Cod Canal was constructed for ships to use as a shortcut, so they didn’t have to sail around the entire cape, with the beautiful steel arch Bourne Bridge spanning the waterway today.
Campsites at the Bourne Scenic Park Campground are equipped with 50 amp electric and water hookups, as well as cable TV and access to the internet. There are clean restrooms, hot showers, and a dump station available to guests, as well as propane and firewood sales at the camp store.

Camping at Bourne Scenic Park Campground is a good base for visiting the Myles Standish State Forest, which forms part of the Atlantic coastal pine barrens ecoregion. It encompasses large tracts of pitch pine and scrub oak forests, which are surrounded by 16 lakes and a number of ecologically significant coastal kettle ponds. There are more than 15 miles of paved cycling trails and 13 miles of hiking trails to explore, as well as routes that are accessible to horseback riders. Keep your eyes peeled for eastern box turtles and native fishers while exploring the forest, as well as prairie warblers, eastern bluebirds, and whip-poor-wills.
The Bourne Scenic Park Campground is around an hour’s drive from the Cape Cod National Seashore, which was created by President John F. Kennedy in 1961.

Directly south of the Bourne Scenic Park Campground is the Mashpee National Wildlife Refuge, which was established in 1995 to protect the area’s salt marshes, cranberry bogs and Atlantic white cedar swamps. It provides vital habitat for migratory waterfowl, songbirds, and shorebirds, not to mention white-tailed deer, native red foxes, and the endangered New England cottontail rabbit. There are miles of walking trails that visitors can explore independently or during one of the regular interpretive programs, and hunting is available in designated areas with relevant licenses and permits.
The Bourne Scenic Park Campground is within easy access of numerous supermarkets where you can stock up on grocery supplies, as well as gas stations if you need to fill up your RV rental.

In Bourne, don’t miss a visit to the Cape Cod Military Museum, which is dedicated to promoting an understanding of the contributions of Americans to 20th-century conflicts. There’s a particular emphasis on the role of southeastern Massachusetts, with military memorabilia and artifacts belonging to men and women who served both at home and abroad.
A short stroll from the museum is the Bourne Society Historic House, an 1830's residence with period-furnished rooms and a granite-walled barn. Another museum not to miss is the Aptucxet Trading Post Museum, which centers around a replica of a 17th-century structure built by pilgrims to trade with the Dutch and the Wampanoag Indians. Other buildings on the property include a replica 19th-century saltworks, a wooden smock windmill, and the relocated Gray Gables Railroad Station.
