Fantastic bike trail starts in Dennis MA and goes all the way through the park to Wellfleet. The trail is relatively flat and goes through several towns (including a nice stop in Orleans with a bike shop and other stores).

I have never camped there, but have visited friends who were camping there on numerous occasions. This is definitely for family fun with all ages of members. If you can, reserve a site near one of the large ponds for easy access to fishing. All you will need is a MA freshwater fishing license and a suitable rod and reel.... More

Good camping. Good swimming ponds, hiking. Well managed. Must reserve camping spots way ahead. Watch out for ticks. Great cross-country skiing on bike path in winter.

We stayed at Nickerson State Park 7/25/13-7/28/13. It's a great place to set up a base camp in order to explore the areas on Cape Cod, within the park and the beaches. Bikes are a great thing to bring as much of the area within the park and surrounding areas are bike friendly. Additionally, the Rail Trail is nearby for... More

Most people come to the Cape to visit the Bay, ocean, Nantucket Sound but forget that Nickerson State Park has ponds for swimming, boating and fishing & trails for hiking and biking. Go for the day ($5/day fee) or make a reservation for a campsite.

Great State Park for family or friend camping overnight, weekends or for an extended visit on Cape Cod. There is swimming, paddleboats, SUPs, and sailing. The Park store provides some groceries and snacks, but the closest grocery store is only 2 miles away. Call for reservations for a camp site, or call the Town of Brewster for a beach pass.... More

Beautiful state park, central location, easy to navigate, and access to biking and plenty of other outdoor activities. Wish I'd brought a tackle box to do some fishing. If it's recreational, this park has it. Definitely recommend checking it out.

Great place to hike, bike, and be one with nature. Although there is a fee, plan to spend the day and it is worth it. Not very many place on earth like cape cod and this is what it's all about. Enjoy

In all of our visits to Cape Cod over the past 18 years, my husband and I had never driven through Nickerson State Park, so during our most recent visit, we made this a priority. For a $5 entrance fee, we had access to the park for the day. Our visit was only an hour or so, but we enjoyed... More

Everything overall about the park is excellent. Two things disappointed me during this latest stay. We stayed in a yurt, which is a good value. When we arrived, the yurt had not been swept, unlike in years past. And, there was no dust pan and broom, nor pole doohickey to open the top to ventilate. While the staff promptly brought... More
