Yes Wompatuck State Park is a great campground close to Boston (about 15 miles south).
Three miles from the park you can catch a bus to Quincy then get on the red line right into Boston.
There is now a commuter rail train that goes right into south station that is close to everything too (three miles away).
Then at the shipyard in Hingham there is a commuter boat that runs a lot during the week then less frequently on weekends. The boat brings you right within walking distance of everything you'd want to see in Boston (like the freedom trail).
You can catch a boat to the Boston Harbor Islands too if you like history tours and great views.
The park is about an hours car ride away from Cape Cod.
Last year Wompatuck was $15 a night with electric on site and water on the roads. Plenty of room and privacy and it's mostly quiet too.
