With activities, amenities and ambience to spare, Massachusetts’ Normandy Farms sets a high bar for resort-style RV parks
Normandy Farms Family Camping Resort in Foxborough, Massachusetts, could be the prototype for the ideal family-friendly RV park. Just 35 miles southwest of Boston, the resort is supremely situated for exploring the historic capital city. However, there’s so much to do on the beautifully manicured grounds, families may have a hard time dragging the kids away.
At the heart of Normandy Farms, a recreation lodge serves as the hub, offering a fitness center, sauna, art center, game room and indoor swimming pool. Outside, visitors can take their pick from three more pools, including one just for adults, plus a fishing pond, a pair of playgrounds, sports courts and a bike park. Guided mountain-biking tours are offered in Foxborough State Forest right next door.
Normandy Farms buzzes with activities for all ages, especially during the summer season with theme events, classes and games offered daily. For canine campers, the resort has kennels, walking services and a 1½-acre dog park with a separate area for smaller dogs. An onsite snack bar makes it easy to grab a meal without taking a break from all the fun.
Nearly 400 campsites spread out across the gently rolling, tree-shaded landscape, most with full hookups. Rates vary by season and amenities, and Good Sam members can take advantage of the club’s 10 percent discount.
