Scargo Tower has been a favorite place in the past. After many years we finally made it back and were so disappointed to find the doorway boarded over and a chain link fence around the base. Since the view from the small parking lot is pleasant, but not special, it is sadly no longer worth the detour to visit

The tower is hidden out of the way so you really have to look for the sign. Drive up the hill and climb and easy rise up to the top. Pick a clear day and take the camera. Nearby Scargo Tavern is a great place for luch after you've worked up an appetite.

What a great old tower to explore and climb to the top, Cute small tower that we love to check out and climb to the top, not too tall at all.. Great experience and worth the trip.

The lake is clean and enchanted, and that's why I swam there daily, for two weeks during my visit in August. I backstroked, watched the clouds move, and it was heaven on Earth! If you like peaceful fresh water, with minimal rules, it's for you. During the main hours in season, yes, the property requires those dang stickers, but if you enter after 4 pm (hours are posted) the guards are gone, no one yells about anything, and it's mostly locals (and lucky, in-the-know tourists). Want to fool around with raft, got a small kid, your dog likes to guard your blanket? This is the place! I heard lots of languages being spoken (including Russian, Spanish, Portuguese, and French) and I saw a couple of people who looked like they may have never lived off-Cape. I'm back home now, scrubbing bits of pine pitch off my car's roof, and that's not so much a complaint as an unintentional souvenir that brings a smile to my face. I'll be back whenever I can.

My first memories of Scargo tower were as a child watching planes do practice bombing runs on the target ship off Eastham. Then watching many sunsets and moon rises and submarine races with girl friends. Now always a great place to take Cape visitors to see beautiful Scargo Lake and Cape Cod Bay
