Great for biking, connects to the cape cod bike trail. Also, trails for hiking along the ponds. There are campgrounds, picnicking, swimming.

A very interesting park to visit, be it yourself or with friends or families. Not one to miss if you are in the area. The Park rangers are very helpful too.Love this one for hiking trails around the ponds and woodlands. We visited this park early Autumn last year and would highly recommend it for anyone who would like to... More

From the cozy fresh water ponds to the vast expanse of woods, wildlife and wetlands, Nickerson State Park, has it all. The only down side was a naturally occurring algae in Cliff Pond the last few summers and those trouble- in- paradise critters - tics. The first snowfall transforms the woods into a winter wonderland. In fact, the woods and... More

Nickerson sits in the middle of beautiful Brewster with bay side beaches which are great for little kids. Freshwater ponds within the Park are great for boating and swimming. Many walking and hiking trails and pet friendly.

I actually visited August of 2012 and camped the year prior, but overall I really like this park. When I stayed here with my husband (then boyfriend), camping was easy and cheap and felt cleaner than the hotels and rental houses my family has booked in the past. That said, we did have a friend's house nearby where we ended... More

Mid October was our fist visit with our dog to circle Cliff pond one day and having loved it, returned to circle Flax pond. Hardly a soul, warm water and white sandy beaches around the turns. We brought a picnic and enjoyed a peaceful walk and even saw a swimmer loving a place we had just discovered right under our... More

Second visit to this park - mainly to do the walk round the great pond. The trail goes all the way round - with possible detours to walk round a second, smaller pond. It was midweek but good to see that there were quite a few other people walking, jogging, fishing or just enjoying the sun on one of the... More

I have come here every year to swim in its crystal clear ponds and hike its trails since I was a local, year around resident..There is something for every nature lover at Nickerson and the grounds are clean, usually quiet and beautiful with wildlife...Gorgeous in the fall when the leaves change color.

We tent camped after Labor Day and had a campsite overlooking one of the ponds. Set back off the road but across from clean rest rooms. A distance to showers but one of cleanest and largest shower rooms we have ever had...real hot water. Quiet, secluded in the heart of Cape Cod.
