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!

We LOVED it here. For $10/vehicle/day (non-MA plates), we found one of the most beautiful, expansive fresh-water ponds we've ever experienced on the cape, as well as miles and miles of beautiful hiking trails. This was a real treasure.

It's a great place to camp and also an excellent park to visit for a day. There're so many activities for people in its huge area: swimming, hiking, jogging, cycling... You could swim in the ponds or go across the road to the ocean.

Lots of up and down (unlike CCRT) and a lovely spot for a simple picnic or snack if you brought one onto the trail while biking. Pretty forest

Nice place to enjoy with family, friends and dogs. Lots of trails to explore by foot or bike. The ponds are great for swimming, kayaking, fishing or to just get your feet cooled off. The staff here are very informative and friendly. It really is a great park to enjoy, not really having to go anywhere else.

We only had time to take the trail around the biggest pond (seemed like under 3miles). At times it would have been nice to see more trail markers. Just stay close to the water - although some of the offshoots looked intriguing. I must say it is surprising that Cape Cod has some pretty big snakes! Next time we'll check... More

If you are vacationing on the Cape and do not go to the beaches, you have missed all the Cape has to offer. This is a beautiful beach and I have never been there when it was too crowde.

This is a gem in the Cape. People tend to think of the ocean beaches, and are missing out on this great spot with numerous stocked kettle ponds where you can rent kayaks or SUP boards to enjoy the ponds (which are really the size of small lakes). Bike trails, hiking trails, camping areas, sandy beaches and warm clear water.... More

I took a bicycle ride through the park and found it to be of high standard bike trails, walk trails and car parks. Well worth a visit.
