Tully Lake Campground

We hope everyone is staying safe and healthy amidst the coronavirus outbreak. We know everyone is anxious to get out camping as we are just as anxious to open our gates and welcome everyone back to Tully.

Due to the Massachusetts re-opening plan we are not allowed to open the campground at this time. Campgrounds will be allowed to open in stage 2 which is at minimum in 3 weeks depending on the Covid-19 case rates going down. With this information we are postponing the opening of Tully Lake Campground to July 1, 2020 in hopes that we will not need to postpone the date again.

If you have a reservation between May 22nd and June 30th, your reservation will be cancelled, and you will be issued a refund to the card that you booked with.

Before our opening we will be sending out our finalized Covid-19 plan on how we will be opening and operating the campground to keep campers and staff healthy and safe. This will be emailed out to all campers with reservations and posted on our website once it is finalized. The reservation system will open back up for reservations on Monday June 1st to make any new reservations between July 1st to October 12th. If you have previously made a reservation after July 1st your reservation is not affected.

We appreciate everyone's understanding and hope everyone stays safe and healthy. We know how important it is to get outside, get exercise, and connect with nature in challenging times, and we look forward to being able to open the campground for everyone to enjoy safely.

Please email with and questions you may have.

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 7.5-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, cornhole board, and a nearby disc-golf course round out the family fun at Tully. But don’t wait to reserve, this campground fills up quick!
