Can't go wrong with this place.

It always delivers. Beautiful setting in the woods, clear ponds with nice sandy beaches. Very good location. Only con: very difficult to book a campsite.

We spent a day riding bikes on the Cape Cod Rail Trail. We rode a total of 52 miles, including a great section through Nickerson State Park. While the majority of the bike ride was flat, the section through Nickerson was hilly and more challenging, in a good way! At one point, after riding up a rise and rounding a... More

First time camping at Nickerson. Had no idea so big. Great for biking, trails everywhere. Crystal clear swimming kayaking ponds. The only thing they need is electrical sites! Extremely hot and humid last week when we were there in our camper!

Our family goes camping here every year. We love it! Each camping area is different and unique in some way. There are 3 lakes, but only 2 are open for swimming and kayaking. We love the bike trails. It's lovely.

We were staying at another state park nearby and decided to drive through Nickerson to see what the hype was about this popular state park. We are campers and are always looking for new campgrounds to explore. The park is large with a lot of camp sites. We drove through each camping loop and some of the roads would be... More

We like going to the pond on a hot day. There is shade and the water is clean. People go kayaking, paddle boating, and only non motorized water sports allowed. No dogs or smoking on the beach which makes it more enjoyable. There is a place next to the pond that rents paddleboards, kayaks, etc.. The cape cod rail trail... More

Spent most of a day there late last summer; it's clean, verdant, dog-friendly, and good for camping if you're into that. A good day trip if you're in Ptown or thereabouts, and a mix of beach, water, and forest that will please all nature enthusiasts.

Bike ride on the CCRT! It was lovely but a little busy for my 6yr old. We still had a great ride, he was just with all the other bikes zooming past! The pond is very small, so a little crowded but it was so lovely. Warm, clean water; bathrooms nearby with running water. We had a great day!

Thank smarBoston
