This is always our first stop when we arrive on the cape! The rangers are helpful and courteous. Ask for suggestions if it's your first visit. If you have time, watch a short movie or two in the auditorium. It will get you into the cape cod spirit! Be sure to visit the gift shop, especially if you are looking... More

My family and I always stop at the visitor center for current information. The staff is always friendly and extremely informative. The restrooms are always kept clean and there's plenty of parking. The walking trails are beautiful and Salt Pond is always beautiful to see.

I wasn't expecting much and honestly pulled in because the parking was free. We walked one of the trails along the marsh with our 4 year old son. The tide was high so we took our shoes off and walked through the water. My son loved seeing the little fish swimming through our feet & we loved the breath taking... More

Perfect place to spend two hours before a wedding. Saw two excellent movies about whaling and Cape Cod formation. They offer a variety of tours and activities throughout the National Seashore. Small, informative and well documented museum in the building.

If you're gonna be on the Seashore for a week like most are, stop in and see what NPS has going on. Always worth chatting with a ranger, they know everything!

We have visited this area for years, but had never done a Park Ranger led activity before. We went to the Wednesday night campfire at Nauset Light Beach. It was great fun mainly due to the efforts of the two Rangers who led the activity. It was a mixed crowd of about 30 people with some teenagers, our 11 year... More

If you come to the Cape Cod National Seashore, you might want to stop by the Salt Pond Visitor Center for an answer to a question about the local flora/fauna, a quick look at the museum, a stop in the gift shop, or simply to soak up the 50's era national park atmosphere. No one here is unhappy. The place... More

We usually stop in here every year as we are biking to the ocean. The rangers are very informative and helpful. Make sure to see one of the short 20 minute films - very interesting. Even the kids like coming here!
