Educational, fun, and beautiful! A half mile walk around Ocean Spray's bog area. We saw fogs and many, many turtles!! The cranberries are getting ready for harvest. Who would have guessed this nice serene hike was in back of the Bass Pro Shop?

it is easy to visit if you are already at the plaza close by to Bass Pro Shop or Trader Joe's. We usually get our snacks or picnic food at Trader Joe's and walk with kids a little on the trail.

We hit the bog trail to get some fresh air, a walk and picnic in on a muggy cloudy day. There are some picnic tables behind Bass Pro and you can walk the short trail around the bog. It is cool to see the cranberry...More

Nice place to walk just about any time of year. Relaxing, different than many New England hikes and just outside BassPro so near convenient shopping.

We always walk the bog when we are in the Patriot Place area. Right behind the Bass Pro Shop. Open dawn to dusk (use driveway on right side of Bass store). Leisurely walk around a bog/nature area that is full of wildlife. Would also recommend...More

We had a great time on this hidden gem. It is behind the Bass Pro Shop and can be easily missed. It is well maintained and just a great place to be. The bonus for us was watching all the turtles. There was a lady...More

Hidden behind the ruckus of Patriots Place, this little gem is a great 'get away' when you can't really get away! Access from behind the outdoors sports business, it's fairly easy to get to. Easy walk, active/working cranberry bogs, it's my 'go to'.

Ran into this little gem. Very quiet and an easy walk. Beautiful spring day. I walked in flip flops.

Nice short walk behind Bass Pro Shops. Exit through Blue Fin restaurant. A few hilly areas, my 4 and 6 year old did fine. There are signs throughout with cranberry facts. Worth the 15-20 minutes.

I try to make the fall cranberry harvest where the volunteer growers are accessable to answer all your quetions about how a cranberry bog works and is maintained. Questions like with bogs that are 100 years old and have layer of sand put on them...More

I'm not sure what camp you are referring to but when we were in Foxboro, we went to the Cranberry Bog and to Patriot Place. We then went nearby to Plymouth to Plimouth Plantation which is wonderful and very family oriented.

If the stroller is heavy duty, I'm sure you could manage. It is not a concrete or boardwalk, but a regular walking trail. It is fairly smooth/even ground. I do not recall there being a lot of holes or anything, but it is... More
