You’ve probably noticed the cranberry bog located here at our own Camp-Resort. Well, it’s far from the only one in the nearby area! Cranberry bogs have been an important part of Massachusetts throughout its history. As early as 1816, cranberries have been cultivated and sold commercially in Massachusetts, creating an iconic state industry. For a very interesting read on the history of the cranberry, check out this article!
There are a multitude of cranberry bogs near our Camp-Resort. You could visit Edgewood Bogs, located right here in Carver! They’ve been active for more than 70 years and offer fresh cranberries for purchase! There’s also Benson’s Pond in Middleboro, which not only offers delicious cranberries for sale, but also provides unique experiences such as their Bogger for a Day harvesting program, and their annual Burgers and Brews bogside dining event!
Whether you’re a longtime cranberry follower, or a brand-new fanatic, there are plenty of events coming up that we’re super excited to share! There’s the Dennis Historical Society Cranberry Exhibit, open from now through September, the Massachusetts Agriculture Day at the Big E Fair, and of course the Nantucket Conversation Foundation Cranberry Festival this October! All of these events occur while we’re open, so you can use Jellystone Park™ Cranberry Acres as your home base for the cranberry festivities occurring all season long!
