Nice hiking and lots of ponds
Sep 2020 • Couples
We enjoyed a hike around Cliff Pond and Little Cliff Pond during our visit to Nickerson State Park.

The trails were well marked and the views very picturesque. After our hike my fiancé set off on his bike on the Cape Cod Rail trail which is near the entrance to the park. He biked 12 miles to our next destination in Wellfleet was where I was waiting with the car.

Nice but parking is expensive
Sep 2020 • Friends
You get dinged for being a tourist. $20 to park and it’s now post Labor Day. One quarter of that if you’re from Massachusetts. Anyway, we enjoyed the park, hiking around Cliff Pond, taking lots of pictures. It’s a long hike, almost four miles but beautiful and worth it.

Great option if you need a break from the beach
Aug 2020
We brought kayaks and enjoyed the freshwater beach. There were a lot of great hiking and biking trails too. It was very clean and not terribly busy. Plenty of spots to park and signs everywhere

Beautiful

We swam and went kayaking (rental) on one of the “ponds”, which are large lakes. So beautiful and serene. Lots of campsites in the park, must be wonderful to stay in.

A gorgeous state park with miles of bike trails that link into the rail trail. Numerous well maintained campsites some right on the kettle ponds. The staff at the park are top notch. A special shout out to Maddy thank you for being so super helpful.

Great day at Cliff Pond
Jul 2020
Great day of swimming and kayaking. Nice sandy areas for chairs and buckets plus calm waters for smooth kayaking. We've often spent full days here just enjoying the small crowds and clear water. Dogs are also OK although do everyone a favor and use a leash. Many people load kayaks with coolers and chairs and paddle over to private beach areas. Very nice.

Beware--Trails are poorly maintained
Jul 2020
Trails are poorly marked and not maintained. It is easy to get off the trail and then you end up trudging through muddy water. The trails were also covered in thorny bushes that should have been cut back and it crossed my mind that I should have brought a machete because it was like being in the jungle. It's just not pleasant to have to scramble up steep hillsides to find one's way back onto the trail only to have the same issue happen again and again. Minimal signage. That said, the water was beautiful. I just wish the parks department took better care of maintenance. For the steep $30 out-of-state parking fee, I expected a better experience.

You won’t believe your on Cape Cod on these trails. Worlds Away!

Great park! Went for a walk on a detour from the Cape Cod Rail Trail. The trail system in the park is vast and is paved. Great for walking or bike riding.

Great place to swim and kayak
Jun 2020
We brought our own kayaks and went to the large kettle pond here and loved it! We were able to paddle to our own private beach area, so fun.
