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.

This is a lovely little park. We were out on the lake. It was extremely peaceful and there were only kayakers and some small fishing boats. There were also some nice sandy beaches along the lake.

Granted, this is a state park, but you can't beat the price, and the location. Right in the heart of the cape, 2 hours from boston, about 40 minutes from Provincetown. right on the cape cod bike trail. Beautiful lakes and hiking trails. a few decent ocean beach close by, as well as shopping and a few restaurants (although for... More

It was very scenic, and the day we went, there were fishermen wading in the pond. There was a great mound at the end of the road we followed, which, when climbed, gave a great panoramic view of the entire park area. Definitely worth a stop to rest and take in the beauty.

From the cozy fresh water ponds to the vast expanse of woods, wildlife and wetlands, Nickerson State Park, has it all. The only down side was a naturally occurring algae in Cliff Pond the last few summers and those trouble- in- paradise critters - tics. The first snowfall transforms the woods into a winter wonderland. In fact, the woods and... More

Nickerson sits in the middle of beautiful Brewster with bay side beaches which are great for little kids. Freshwater ponds within the Park are great for boating and swimming. Many walking and hiking trails and pet friendly.
