We found this place by accident and what a find. It was centrally located on the Cape. Spacious camp sites, we didn't feel like we were on top of other campers. Very quiet and relaxing. Lots of stuff to do for family's, free hot showers, clean restrooms, the staff was all very helpful and friendly. Will defiantly go back again.

We stayed here a few nights in July. No real complaints, it was peaceful for the most part. The banks around the campsite made you feel more isolated, and the lake was lovely. We were at site B 15 which was fine but nothing special. The lake was just a little walk away. The bathrooms were fine, had hot showers and they were kept clean,and there was a sink to do your dishes. The site was a good size. We did get visited by a skunk quite a bit at night, fortunately he didn't spray at all. Our fault because our dog spilled her food on the ground. I used the store only to buy ice, but it looked like it had quite an assortment of things if you forget something. And there's a Stop and Shop within 20 min. No coin laundry on the campsite as we found out after a rain storm, but there is one not too far away. The only bad thing was their prices advertised are not their real prices, they did raise prices this year but apparently had an issue with their website developer not updating their website, so they do not honor the prices posted online. I didn't have a problem with it but apparently some people do. This is not one where you will find organized activities for the kids, basically it's a campsite but we were there for going to the beaches, which were not that far away.

We have been camping at SWF for the past 3 years and have nothing but good things to say. The sites clean and are mostly private (C-sites are my favorites), bathroom are always clean and even though there are only 2 showers, you rarely have to wait for one. The water pressure is awesome and very few critters in the bathroom. They are very strict about quite hours (10pm-8am) which I like. They consider "noise" to be an emergency and to call whenever. They are very responsive to complaints/issues. We called one night because the community water spout continually ran. They were there within 20 min to fix it. From 10pm-8am (?), they close a gate which is nice. You can get a key from the main office if you will be back after 10pm. They don't have activities for children (other than a weekly hay ride), which doesn't bother me since we don't have any children, but with so much to do on the cape, I don't think that's an issue. There's fishing at a pond on the property, however, you can't swim in the pond. With lights only being in the main office, rec building (TV, books), you really feel like you're camping alone. Being located in Brewster, you're nearby to farmer markets, restaurants, beaches, CC Rail trail, etc. We are definitely coming back for our 4th year!

Room Tip: c-sites seem to be the most "private" and offer the largest sites

This was our sixth year camping at Sweetwater and we loved every minute of it! The campground is clean and safe and the bathroom facilities are more than adequate and kept clean as well. We love the availability of campsites that are not right on top of each other as they are at the state park. Sweetwater Forest is close to beaches, the state park, the rail trail, grocery and other stores and yet very quiet and private. The staff is great and on the rare occasion that there is a need of some type, they are very quick to respond. We've already made our reservation for next year and look forward to it as a highlight of the year! This is all coming from a city girl who said she'd never, ever go camping--but Sweetwater changed all of that!

We have been trying to get into Sweetwater for the last few years, but due to site availabiliy or our schedules we had been unable to connect. However, after this past week camping there, we are glad we kept trying. Our family has camped up and down the New England coast for the last 20 years, and Sweetwater was the most family, pet, bicycle and staff friendly place that we have been since Webbs Campground on Martha's Vineyard closed in the late 1990s. On top of that it is the cleanest campground that we have been to. It seemed like the bathrooms are cleaned 3 times a day. We can't recommend it highly enough to anyone who has an RV, pop up or tent. You will not be disappointed and the convenience to the Cape beaches, bicycle paths, fresh fish and fresh vegetable stands is almost as good as the campground staff. We are sure that you will enjoy your stay as much as we and our dog did.

We have been camping at Sweetwater Forest for over ten years. Sweetwater is clean, safe, fun, the staff are wonderful, and the camp is close to the best beaches, trails and all kinds of summer actiivities. Hot showers, clean bathrooms and very nice camp sites. We just got back from camping this year and already reserved our spot again for next year! Thanks to Heather and all of the staff at Sweetwater for the hayrides and memories. See you next year! What a great way to enjoy Cape Cod.

Room Tip: There are special camp sites at Sweetwater for everyone. We have had the same site for six years. F...
