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!

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.
