Kimball's Campground

Kimball's Campground offers tent and trailer sites. There is an in-ground pool, and beach swimming by crossing the footbridge over the Cape Ann's yard approach track. Railfans find excellent views of yard traffic entering and departing Davis Yard, as well as mainline action on the double-tracked main beyond. Activity at Quinn Intermodal can also be seen from many of the sites as well as the footbridge.

Freights rumble past the rear of the campsites - an unpleasant surprise for those expecting peace and quiet.

Office and bath house.

Railfans line the footbridge while significant others enjoy the pool.

Quinn Intermodal Facility is just across the tracks.

Here we are at Kimball's Beach, as a Cape Ann passenger train passes under the pedestrian footbridge on its way to Davis. The footbridge allows campers from Kimball's Campground to get to their sandy beach without having to cross the tracks.
