We were greeted at the gate by friendly attendant who directed us to a beautiful lake. We met two fisherman who caught a large trout that was going to be their dinner. There is another part of the park off Linnell Landing with trails.

Our family used to camp here many years ago, but now that we live on the Cape we bike over to the park as it has some fine bike paths (a few quite steep in spots). The trail passes a couple ponds that are really quite pretty.

I love kayaking on the ponds, swimming as well. I used to always camp there one or two weekends a summer, but now you can not bring in your own firewood, you have to buy from them. I Live on the Cape so the firewood I bring in IS local. Most out of staters had opportunity to buy local firewood... More

We stayed for 4 nights and really enjoyed our time camping on the Cape. The location is convenient to the bike path, the bay and the ocean side. September is a nice time to visit as it is still warm and not as crowded.

Great biking, hiking, swimming, kayaking, paddle boarding and of course camping. The Cape Cod Rail Trail (Bike Trail) goes right through the park and continues onto Orleans Village. The freshwater ponds at the park are fantastic. Great Spot!

I loved seeing the ocean floor and walking out onto it. I really should have studied up on tides before going. I found it amazing. Was only disappointed by the number of places that were closed which was due to our lateness in planning this getaway. Next time we'll plan on maybe 2nd week of Sept

The ponds are a wonderful place to swim, and the bike trails are a great way to enjoy the scenery. All the camp sights are within easy access to both.

I haven't camped in years and we really had a very nice time on this trip with a group of neighbors. Nickerson has nicely-sized lots with enough preserved tree cover to offer some privacy. Lake was accessible enough without introducing concern that our younger kids might accidentally wander over. Felt safe to let the kids ride their bikes around the... More

We stayed two nights and we liked our site. The park was great for biking. We had a travel trailer and one complaint that was a concern was the dump station. That might not mean a lot to some but to those who CARE about germs beware. It was very sloppy to say the least. Now that's from uncaring users.... More

Visited the park on a Wednesday in the fall. I think my husband and I were the only ones there. Its a big state park with lots of trails and ponds! It was so tranquil and relaxing. The water seemed so clean. Next time we bring 2 beach chairs and a couple of sandwiches and hang out!!! Loved it would... More
