Beautiful beach to hang out on or to walk the coastline. Get your parking pass at the front desk at your hotel if you plan on spending the day at the beach or wait till late afternoon when the tide goes out and your kids can explore the seashore for a hundred yards out.

was great fun, and a bit challenging in spots for a roller blader joining us. We stopped at Area 7 and swam in a fresh pond. Absolutely perfect!

We enjoyed flax pond. The water is clean and safe for the little ones. There are bathroom facilities and outdoor showers to wash the sand off your feet. The kayak and paddle board rental make for a fun filled day. It is expensive to rent the equipment but you can take turns so everyone gets a chance to enjoy.

My husband and I happened upon this campground on our first visit to Cape Cod early in July. We were lucky enough to get a site for 4 nights as someone was cancelling as we were coming in! The Staff were very friendly and accommodating! We were very happy with our stay... even through hurricane Arthur!! We loved the ponds... More

Wonderful camping facility. Clean bathrooms, clean showers. Beautiful ponds within easy reach. Decent park store. Mostly families, very quiet after dark. Areas 1-5 are close to pond and main road. Area 6 has shower. Area 7 is far and quite secluded. Cliff pond and Flax ponds are wonderful!

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. Ask for a camp or reserve in Camp Area 1, it is closest to the entry, 6 and 7 are the worst as you have to drive too far. Go to the beach by Camp Area 1... More

Great bike trails, an interesting switch from the CCRT because of changing elevations. Not for very young or very inexperienced bikers as there are some steep grades. 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
