*Clean campground. bathrooms are cleaned twice daily, I think. This is so awesome. *The owners fill up the campground in a really nice way, keeping a buffer between you and neighbors till they have to fill neighboring sites, which is really nice. *campsites fit a big tent, big screen room, and we actually had two screen rooms. * not much...

Experienced Canadian tent campers without kids. Fantastic location for exploring the outer cape. Great campsites, quiet campers (people who get it). Great showers clean bathrooms, large campsites. We would definitely come again. Distance travelers, there is a huge "stop and shop" grocery store 15 min away. If I was going again I would save packing space and buy groceries when... More

We stayed 4 nights and I believe they cleaned the toilets 8 times during our stay. This place is very well maintained. The site is in a forest of pine trees, so the ground is covered with pine needles and nothing else can grow except few patches of grass here and there. So wind can flow easily and there was... More

We camped for four days w/ two small kids. Great place that is well kept. Amenities include everything you need - hot showers (7min/25 cents), bathrooms, store, playground. Short walk to the beach. Almost entirely pine wooded sites w/ mass amounts of needles. A lot of rules but nothing too unexpected. Do note the campfire rules: only charcoal, by permit... More

We camp at North of Highland for a week. This was not our first stay, we have stayed before a few times. We stayed in the 200 section. It was so quiet and not a lot of traffic. The staff were so friendly and the lady who works at the camp store gave us information about stuff to do in... More

Yes, the have rules, but nothing outlandish and you can walk to amazing Cape Cod National Seashore in 15-20 min. Best beaches in all of Cape Cod by far. Stay away from rocky and seaweed beaches on lower Cape. Make your way up to Truro and enjoy the beauty. Lots of RV's for the summer, but thats bc the ideal... More

I first camped here in 1998 and have come back every year. As other reviewers have pointed out, there are lots of rules to follow here which may explain why it's so quiet and peaceful! It's a short walk to the National Seashore, one of the most spectacular coastlines anywhere. The Truro Public Library is very close by, and provides... More

This is located in a very beautiful area and within a walking distance to the beach. It was so quiet on the campground, hadn't slept that good in years! The RV we rented was very new and beautiful on the inside. Would recommend for location and value.

We just got back from a great labor day weekend trip to North of Highland. This campground was fantastic overall. The facilities were super clean, and our site was great. What really sets this campground apart for us is the fact that it is very woodsy and locate close to the amazing head of the meadow beach. We will be... More

The facility is lovely, the location is great, and we are repeat visitors. We understand why there are so many rules - as the evenings are quiet for sleeping and there are no open fires...but you can go to the beach with a permit and have one. This was our 2nd year going with a large group (a family and... More
