My family stayed here last week for four nights. The campground is well maintained. The bathrooms and showers were very clean. There is a beautiful kettle pond on location for swimming. If you stay here, you will get peace and quiet. There are no planned activities, playground, etc., you get camping. Also, there is no store. You can get ice... More

Nothing spectacular, bathrooms are small & pay showers 25 cents for 1 minute. They charge $5 per guest per day, & guests must leave by 9pm, quite ridiculous in my opinion. We were in a trailer so we were right off the parking lot which was adjacent to the road. A lot of noise & lights at night. Oh, and... More

While the campground itself is nice the staff and especially the owner make it a very stressful and non-enjoyable experience. when we arrived on our first night we were given all of the rules which are very comprehensive and leave nothing unmentioned. you must be quiet after 10pm and your fire must be out by 12:00. the group i was...

The one area that could be more clear is in the website that states reservation are for only 3 day min. You can still go for a Friday and Saturday night or just a Saturday night, they just can't reserve a spot. The owners may want to review having some type of 1 or 2 night reservation for a portion...

I came here for years with family and with friends and the way they treat people has gotten worse. It is such a shame because the grounds really are lovely and well kept. There is a nice pond on the premisis and you are allowed to burn a campfire unlike many other spots on the outer cape. It's just that... More

Very close to loveless kettle pond called the Duck Pond. Very close to the end of the Cape Cod rail trail in Eastham. Easy drive to the famous Beachcomer (good if you're in your 20s) and other ocean beaches. Also within a 10 to 15 minute drive of the movie theater/drive in and welfleet shops and restaurants. Maybe we were... More

My wife and I have been visiting Paine's Campground for about five years. We always come back because it is as good as camping can realistically be on Cape Cod. The grounds are very well kept and clean. The restrooms and showers are perfectly clean. The owners and staff obviously care about their guests well being. We stay in the... More

The owner is VERY RUDE. My bf and I decided to stay at the campground to save some money on hotels during the 4th of July holiday. We got there on Monday afternoon (July 1st ), where the woman was “at lunch” so we came back in an hour or so. Not a big deal at all. She was very... More

We recently stayed here for 4 nights during the 4th of July weekend. We decided to camp only to bring the cost down from staying in a hotel. I believe our rate was $45 a night. Still a lot for camping in my opinion, but for being on the Cape, still a good low-cost option. We were in the "quiet... More
