“great campground in perfect location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

Nickerson is a great campground, mid cape cod. A great rail trail (paved) bike path passes right through the park. It is relatively easy riding. The sites are large and afford more privacy than most parks. We've decided to leave the tent at home and opt for the yurts (if you don't know about the yurts check out the web site). The only downside to relying on the yurts is that you have to reserve months in advance. Bathrooms are clean and pretty close. No coin operated showers and there is plenty of hot water. Most of the cape is within half an hour drive (Provincetown is about 40 minutes). There are two lakes within the campground. Boat rentals are available but a little pricey for my tastes. My favorite beach, Nauset, is probably 15 minutes away. Major grocery store is 10 minutes down the road, although there is a camp store for things like ice and milk. My family loves this place and has been going a couple of times per year for several years.

“A Beauty”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2013

Go for the pristine ponds and cool breezes. This park is easily accessible by the cape cod rail trail or by car. A very family friendly environment with boat rentals, rest rooms, shade and campsites all available. Pack a lunch and spend the day. We have been back many times.

“Great Bike Path”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2013

We love to ride our bikes on Cape Cod Bike Trail that runs through the park. We can stop for restroom facilities if need be, picnic, and park in convenient lots. Great place to spend a Springtime day.
