There are extensive and well-maintained trails for year-round hiking and dog-walking. In the Summer, Burges Pond offers boating and swimming at two beaches.
Within the East Boston Camps area, there are facilities for camping (in tents or cabins) and special events, such as weddings, family reunions or other celebrations.
Renting The Camps
EBC campsite facilities can be rented by individuals and groups on weekends during the spring and fall seasons. The facilities are available to both residents and nonresidents, and include a kitchen, dining hall, and recreation hall, as well as cabins, bath houses, and fire pits.
The Westford Conservation Commission is entrusted with the care, custody, management, and use of the East Boston Camps property, including the campsite facilities. In collaboration with the Commission, Westford Parks & Recreation handles the entire rental process for the EBC campsite facilities, from scheduling, and issuing permits, to the collection of fees.
