NOTICE: The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers at Tully Lake informed us that the lake has tested positive for unsafe levels of Cyanobacteria, also known as blue-green algae. Cyanobacteria blooms are naturally occurring, and tend to happen during the spring and fall seasons. You can learn more about Cyanobacteria by clicking here. Unfortunately, this means that the water is not safe for swimming and wading at this time. Believe me when I tell you that we are not happy about no swimming allowed either! We apologize for the timing of this natural process and encourage you to enjoy the water by boat. The lake will be visually inspected daily. When it appears to be clear, testing will be arranged to confirm that state water quality standards are being met. We will keep the website updated and spread the word as soon as the swimming ban has been lifted.

Tully Lake Campground is your close-to-home wilderness getaway! A tent-only campground set along the shores of a 200-acre lake in Royalston Massachusetts, Tully Lake Campground showcases the best of New England outdoor recreation. Paddle up the picturesque Tully River, or explore the islands and inlets on the lake. Hike to tranquil overlooks and roaring waterfalls, or mountain bike the 7-mile loop around Long Pond. Fish off the campground banks or lounge in the refreshing shade of towering pine trees.
Feeling adventurous? You can even plan a two-day trip on the 22 mile Tully Trail loop, or practice your geocaching skills. A horseshoe pit, volleyball net, and a nearby disc-golf course round out the family fun at Tully. But don’t wait to reserve, this campground fills up quick!
