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!

This Labor Day weekend was our second time camping at Nickerson and once again we loved it! So many of the sites are very nice. We camped in Area 6 both times, but we found sites in Area 7 and Area 2 that we really like. Love that there is access to the ponds via trail and there are sandy... More

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!
