We spent the day at Nickerson State Park where we were able to hang on the beach of the lake. The kids enjoyed fishing and swimming and also the paddle board rentals. We played bocce ball and brought our lunch. It was a great day. Very clean park and rangers were very nice.

Have been camping at Nickerson for many years. Have stayed in campgrounds all over the United States and Nickerson is one of the best. Large wooded camp sites. Great bike trails, clean lakes, and clean restrooms.

This is a great camp ground, wonderful lake, so natural and beautiful, very clean bathrooms and camp overall. Love the beach, fresh water.

You can hook up with CCRT at the main parking lot. Study the maps. Trails can be a little confusing. Trails are not at all crowded as CCRT is, at times. No fee... More

Nickerson offers great family camping with flush toilets, hot showers, camp store and interpretative nature programs. Plus an awesome in-park bike trail that connects to the Cape Cod Rail Trail. Plus swimming and paddle sports on Flax and Cliff Ponds (rentals available.) So much to do, in addition to just a short ride to ocean beaches. Love this place! Area... More

This is the best way to visit and experience the cape if you are on a budget. The camping is wonderful and the ponds make for a great swim. Reservations are a must here, as the secret is definitely out. Not all campsites are created equal, so make sure to check the map before booking. Also know that there are... More

Immaculate park (THANKS TO CAL!) and one of our favorite destinations when we want to get away. Smack dab in the middle of one of the most beautiful parts of the country. The park employees make it what it is.

We decided to drive through and have a look around. We were staying close by. The camp grounds look very nice. Plenty to do there. Nice lakes. There was bike paths throughout. Bath houses too. Very pretty clean grounds.

The park is free and easily accessible. it has numerous ponds with wild birds. You can walk for miles through this peaceful, wooded section. The Cape has great beaches, but this is a bonus attraction, if you think to use it.
