Ponds are nice for swimming and kayaking for a day. Quiet. Needs more parking and make the roads to the pond parking 2-way -- a bit scary now as there is only room for 1 car at a time. The sand at the beach seems to have washed in to the pond - make the beaches sandier. Need to have... More

Rented SUPs as well as canoe here to our family. Great little pond to use the device in. Serveral beaches with sand and calm waters.

You cannot go wrong with Cape Cod. Nautical and historic. You won't find the boardwalk atmosphere here. Get outside and do things.

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.
