Our tour stopped here for in introduction of the province Lands. They have a gift shop, viewing deck, bathrooms, and we saw a movie about whaling. The top looks like the old life saving towers that was the beginning of Coast Guard. Interesting museum.

There are many wonderful, natural places to visit on Cape Cod. This is a place that stands out in that the dunes cannot be seen like this anywhere else on The Cape. There is an observation deck inside the visitors center and amazing bike trails throughout the forest. The area is pristine with lovely views of the shore. All of... More

We stopped here on our way leaving Ptown. The guard was super friendly and directed us to the visitor center which had a nice view and gave some nice history of the area.

This has a great view from the top deck and they have a fountain for refilling water bottles. The rangers were extremely helpful and it is worth a stop to acquaint yourself with your surroundings.

If you visit the Truro/Provincetown area, Province Lands is a must! The Rangers were so helpful. Go upstairs and take in the breathtaking views of the Ocean surrounded by the Dunes and you can see a few historical Dune Shacks if you look closely. We even saw some whales! Even though they have two binocular stands, it helps to bring... More

I found the Visitor Center by accident on a morning ride and it was a welcome site. While I was really only looking for a location to fill up my water bottle I was pleasantly surprised by all of the exhibits and information here. Be sure to go up top to the lookout platforms for a wonderful view. Restroom facilities... More

Arrived there at 6 pm. It is a chill, solitude corner, far away from the crowds, which was exactly what I expected. There were seals swimming in the ocean. We waited 2 hours to see the sunset, it was beautiful, and it was just you and the world. It reminds me Michael Jones's Seascapes.
