We stayed two nights and we liked our site. The park was great for biking. We had a travel trailer and one complaint that was a concern was the dump station. That might not mean a lot to some but to those who CARE about germs beware. It was very sloppy to say the least. Now that's from uncaring users.... More

Visited the park on a Wednesday in the fall. I think my husband and I were the only ones there. Its a big state park with lots of trails and ponds! It was so tranquil and relaxing. The water seemed so clean. Next time we bring 2 beach chairs and a couple of sandwiches and hang out!!! Loved it would... More

We have been going to Nickerson State Park on and off for the past 25 years. It's one of the best State parks we have camped in, the sites are big and private for the most part. Great access to the bike trails up to Wellfleet and around the park. The only negative comment is that on Saturday we returned... More

I have been enjoying Nickerson for decades and I never tire of it! It is located right off the Rail Trail and there are miles of additional bike trails throughout the park. Of course, you don't need to have a bike to use the trails. I have thoroughly enjoyed just walking on them, throughout the woods, alongside ponds. Once, I... More

We stopped at Flax Pond on a cycling trip along the Cape Cod Rail Trail. Crystal clear water--some of the cleanest for swimming I've seen. Bath house on site with spigot for rinsing. Wish there was a bike rack near the bath house, I'm not sure, with bike trails nearby, why there isn't one.

This is a hidden gem in cape cod, proving that cape cod is more than just beaches. There is a beautiful lake where you can kayak and paddle board. This is a great trip especially if it's too windy on the beach.

The layout of the place is great. Large campsites; even though some folks were a little loud, we had enough privacy and enjoyed the camping trip. The one disappointment was the camp store. Not open for the much-needed coffee at 6 or 7 am; not enough camping necessities, such as poison ivy creams/lotions/soaps...they could pack the store to the hilt... More

Our three year old loved the trail system within this park. Lots of elevation changes, mushrooms, and the occassional frog. We rented a canoe (right in the park - a little pricy, but very convenient) and spent another afternoon playing on all the little beaches around the various ponds. If you go late in the day, there's a bonus as... More

The ponds are warm and great for swimming- good for kids as they are gradual in depth and have sandy beaches and bottoms for a ways out. Some of the bonds have boat rentals and are good for fishing. Bike trails meander through the park, and are again perfect for kids because there aren't many hills and they are smoothly... More

The park was clean and quiet. Bathrooms could use updating but every thing worked as it should. We'll be going there again!
