“Good information”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2013

Mom and I stopped here for information before we traveled through the park. The man at the desk was really wonderful and full of good information. We even stayed and watched a short film on Cape Cod. A must stop before you enter the park!

“Salt Pond such helpful info”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2013

The location is beautiful. There are even swans on the pond. The bridge was out the day I was there so you could not walk around it. The park ranger gave out helpful, marked maps to make the Seashore visit easy.

“A Must See Marsh View”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2013

The Cape Cod landscape is one of many estuaries and salt marshes. The largest individual marsh is the Great Salt Marsh to the west of the town of Barnstable. With deep channels running through it, this is a popular area to explore by kayak. We have been told by several folks we have met along our journey that the viewscape of the Great Salt Marsh near Fort Hill should not be missed.

Nearby, Captain Penniman built his French Second Empire style house on Cape Cod in 1868. Today, house is a National Historic Site owned and interpreted by the National Park Service as part of Cape Cod National Seashore. The house holds the Penniman family's written records and artifact collections, which provide glimpses of the places and people that the family visited on their whaling voyages.
