I loved seeing the ocean floor and walking out onto it. I really should have studied up on tides before going. I found it amazing. Was only disappointed by the number of places that were closed which was due to our lateness in planning this getaway. Next time we'll plan on maybe 2nd week of Sept

The ponds are a wonderful place to swim, and the bike trails are a great way to enjoy the scenery. All the camp sights are within easy access to both.

I haven't camped in years and we really had a very nice time on this trip with a group of neighbors. Nickerson has nicely-sized lots with enough preserved tree cover to offer some privacy. Lake was accessible enough without introducing concern that our younger kids might accidentally wander over. Felt safe to let the kids ride their bikes around the... More

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
