Camp Overflow

A Memorable
Camping Experience

Camp Overflow is a third-generation family-owned campground located on Otis Reservoir in the Berkshires of Massachusetts.

About us

Our location in Otis, MA is a small hill town where a walk along a country road or a swim at the lake’s edge are the norm. The Otis Reservoir is a beautiful lake to enjoy boating, swimming, fishing or just relaxing. Our mission remains the same as it was over 60 years ago when the campground opened: we strive to provide a clean, family-friendly camping experience.
