“Nice for Camping”
Reviewed December 20, 2012

There are several ponds and ample facilities for camping. Lots of bicycle paths that are also nice for walking. It's well signposted just take note as to where you are.

All in all I only ever cycled in there never stayed but it is very pretty.

“Nickerson by bike”
Reviewed October 12, 2012

Too hilly for me to do a bike ride on trails but if you go to area 1 there is a walking path down to a small lake at site 25. There are a few comfortable benches to relax by the water. The ranger can give you a map and explain how to get there

“Great get away for us locals too!”
Reviewed September 29, 2012

We have taken our family here alot through the years. We especially liked that we could "get away " and still drive back and forth to work.

“A wonderful state park”
Reviewed September 27, 2012

Great for biking, hiking and camping. Ponds are beautiful to swim in, although only one was open when we went due to the drought and it being late in the season. You can rent paddle boats, stand up paddle boards and sunfish sailboats by the hour. There are great bike paths (be ready for hills) and there are also unpacked fire roads for mountain biking. It's a hidden gem on the lower cape.
