Great family spot!

Safe, clean, family oriented. Go and enjoy. Spend the day, bring lunches and your bikes too! You'll make it a regular spot every time you visit the Cape for sure.

The Nickerson State Park near Brewster is beautiful. You can hike several miles on bigger (signed) trails or small paths around the ponds/lakes. If you want you can take a bath on small beaches also. Many people are there for camping also (but not crowded). You should visit if you are in the near of Brewster!

Nickerson State park is a wonderful place to camp and experience Cape Cod. Centrally located, near the elbow of the Cape and along the Old King's Highway. - my favorite part of the Cape. You have easy access to the beautiful cape bicycle trails and are a short drive to some really great beaches. If the traffic is light you... More

This is a gorgeous wooded park with hilly bike trails, kettle ponds & a campground. We enjoyed a week here. Would definitely return. So peaceful & quiet.

Nickerson State Park provides a lodging alternative to the sometimes-spendy options on Cape Cod. We stayed two nights, driving to the Cape Code National Seashore and the nearby hamlets during the day. The NSP rangers were very helpful and friendly, pointing out a secluded beach nearby where we could watch the sunset.

We were greeted at the gate by friendly attendant who directed us to a beautiful lake. We met two fisherman who caught a large trout that was going to be their dinner. There is another part of the park off Linnell Landing with trails.

Our family used to camp here many years ago, but now that we live on the Cape we bike over to the park as it has some fine bike paths (a few quite steep in spots). The trail passes a couple ponds that are really quite pretty.

I love kayaking on the ponds, swimming as well. I used to always camp there one or two weekends a summer, but now you can not bring in your own firewood, you have to buy from them. I Live on the Cape so the firewood I bring in IS local. Most out of staters had opportunity to buy local firewood... More

We stayed for 4 nights and really enjoyed our time camping on the Cape. The location is convenient to the bike path, the bay and the ocean side. September is a nice time to visit as it is still warm and not as crowded.

Great biking, hiking, swimming, kayaking, paddle boarding and of course camping. The Cape Cod Rail Trail (Bike Trail) goes right through the park and continues onto Orleans Village. The freshwater ponds at the park are fantastic. Great Spot!
