It’s important to know that some of our fisheries are contaminated with mercury, PFAS and/or other concerning substances. The Massachusetts Department of Public Health maintains an online database with up-to-date advisories regarding fish consumption, sorted by location. We recommend you consult this valuable resource when planning a fishing excursion.


This no-fee, 24-hour, double wide ramp is open to the public and offers on-site parking spots for 43 trailers. The ramp averages 6ft at low tide. A good access point for Stellwagen Bank, Provincetown, the Minot area ledges, and Boston Harbor. Swimming is not permitted. There is also a wooden pier on site.

This land is within the region of the Massachusett (or Massachuseuk). To learn more about local Native American tribes, we encourage you to interact with their members. The Mattakeeset band of the Massachusett, and the Massachusett tribe at Ponkapoag, both share information on their websites.
