While stopping at parks with a trailer takes a bit more set up and work...there are some very fun benefits for kids over hotels. Lakes have fishing, kyaking and sand...unique features over a hotel pool. One down side is that it needs to be warm enough outside to enjoy it. :)
This was a river we camped by- no swimming but they definitely got their feet wet exploring :)
We were only in Boston one day. We camped in Plymouth for three days.

It was a good trip. I'm glad we made the effort. It was a lot of driving but the stops were fun and we learned a lot about history...and camping with kiddos. :)
