This heavily wooded park, minutes from Interstate Route 495, offers abundant beauty and many opportunities for recreation. Four lakes provide excellent fishing. Swimming for camping patrons only is available at the beach on Middle Pond. Biking, canoeing, walking, hiking, horseback riding and cross-country skiing are popular activities. In the fall the contrast of scarlet cranberry bogs against the pines is breathtaking. Massasoit is also a favorite of trailer campers, with most of its 123 campsites provided with electrical or water hookups.
i really enjoy all the different trails. the trails wrap around the multiple bodies of water. there's plenty of space to ride bikes with the family, if thats your preference. ive been hiking through this park for almost ten months now, on the weekends, and still discover new trails to explore.
The ponds and lakes were beautiful. Lot's of people fishing. The trails are all very well maintained but not well marked. There is really only one marked Blue trail (and not marked well in some spots) and many offshoots that are not marked at all and are not reflected on the trail map. So if you go exploring it's easy to get turned around. I'd rate the hike as easy with only a few moderate inclines. We hiked 6 miles in about 2 hours with stops along the way. Truly a beautiful area and would do it again.

Fun, but keep your eyes ready and steady. Poor signage for trails
