This tower is very easy to climb. There are not that many stairs. At the top is a platform with a perfect view of the Cape. Looking down toward Scargo Lake was enjoyable seeing the colorful sailboats in the water. You only need a small amount of time for this attraction. However it is worth doing as the view is... More

We went to Scargo tower after visiting Eden and eating a nice lobster lunch at Susuit Harbor Cafe. Little winding drive and there the tower sits atop a scenic overlook. Beautiful views, not too tall, free admission. Definitely worth a trip.

Scargo Tower is a century old tower that is easy to climb and offers awe-inspiring views of beautiful landscape and ocean!!! Plus it's free.

Cape Cod is beautiful, but because of the trees and the fact that the roads do not meander along the shore, it is difficult to get a perspective of this peninsular of land. If you are driving along Route 6A in Dennis, consider a side trip to Scargo Tower. It is totally free and the short clime to the top... More

Free, close and no hassle diving to, but accept that it is only a small tower and worthy of about ten minutes time. Spiral stairway inside the tower leads to top. Not a lot of steps but may seem narrow to some. Didn't count the steps, but the tower does not seem to be any higher than a single story... More

Stop by with the family - only takes a minute to walk the spiral staircase to the top of the tower. Beautiful view of Scargo Lake and the ocean beyond. Even better around sunset!

OK, it's not more than a handful of steps and it sits by itself in a small parking lot off a residential road, but the view of Scargo Lake and Cape Cod Bay are well worth the visit.

Simply refreshing! A 3 minute walk up a spiral case of stairs and voilá! Take in the scene for as long as the doctor recommends! Best part ...it's FREE!

Scargo Tower is only 30 feet high but it's location on a hill gives some amazing views. If you have a clear day and look just right you can see out to Provincetown. The tower is made from cool field stones and is an easy climb to the top, just be careful you don't clunk your head at the top.... More
