We visited during a quiet time, a week after Labor Day. I was a little disappointed with our site, as it was misrepresented on the map provided on the website. That being said, the sites were nice and the facilities were exceptional. The restrooms and showers were incredibly clean and I couldn't believe the showers were free! That was a... More

MA state workers should rent busses and visit a state Park in NH to get an idea on how to clean bathrooms. Use the woods so much cleaner. This is a nice hiking park. Don't bike it....too Hilly.

We love camping at Nickerson. There is so much to do there. We went out on Flax pond on paddle boards we rented there (it was a bit to pricey, so next time we will try somewhere else). There is hiking, biking, swimming, fishing, bird watching, something for everyone.

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
