I love this park, beautiful ponds, peaceful walking. We use it all the time, there are paved paths with great signage. Also there are wooded pathways and fire roads you can hike for miles and miles very beautiful.

Great place to go biking, fishing and walking-driving thru. Right near the Brewster Bay. You are in another world from the beaches. Beautiful.

Not enough people enjoy the beauty of nature that we have right here in our backyard at Nickerson State Park. With miles of paved and unpaved trails there's always something new to see once you get out there.

There are no sites directly on ponds. You have to walk down a trail to them
