Miles of well-marked trails. Some are paved, others are wooded paths. There are many beautiful ponds to walk around or view from one of the many paths. The park is huge with tons of variety in terms of walking trails.

Located just off Route 6A in Brewster, there are a number of trails for walking and biking. We went off season which was nice as we avoided traffic and crowds. It was beautiful as some trees still had some Fall color. The trails are well maintained and I had a sense of being safe there. On the day we went,... More

Cape Cod Rail Trail (CCRT) is VERY manageable, not too challenging. Very clean, very friendly activity.

We ate lunch here by the side of a beautiful lake - beautiful and peaceful setting - wooded rolling hills.

Located off Route 6A in Brewster, the park is a sprawling wood area with much to offer. Campsites for tent, RV or trailer campers are well used in season and reservations are recommended. Two clear, sandy ponds offer swimming and boating; one has both a boat rental concession and toilets. A number of hiking or biking trails are in the... More

Always a wonderful getaway! We love this park. We try to go camping at least once a season. This is the bad part. The booking system to reserve a campsite is really terrible. Reservations begin in January. The system is rigged in such a way that if you don't get online in the first 10 minutes, you won't get a... More

This used to be one of my most favourite campgrounds. The campsites are large and most of them are quite private. I've gone there about 4 times since 1992. This year I was really looking forward to my time there, until I had to use the bathroom. They have not been updated, nor have they been well maintained. Someone posted... More

I recently spent a night camping at Nickerson (the last weekend of summer, even though summer unofficially ends on Cape Cod on Labor Day). Last year on the same date I started a camping tradition with my 7 year old son here, and this year my 5 year old joined us. I hadn't been to Nickerson for ten years or... More

Another wonderful beach and quite crowded in the summer. Fall is the perfect time to visit Cape Cod beaches with the tourists gone and most of the traffic only locals as well as retirees (drivers beware!).
