We stayed at Adventure Bound Camping Resort during the last week in August. The location is wonderful. It's close to some of the best beaches on Cape Cod. As a matter of fact you can walk to the beach.... granted its a long walk about 20-30 minutes and about a mile away, but if you are up for it you can do it and it's actually a nice walk through a wooded path. The sites at this campground are mostly filled up with seasonals. There are really no amenities at this campground. Even the campground store is stocked with very little. The bathrooms are a bit older but mostly clean. We didn't use them because our camper has a bathroom and we had a full hookup. The campground charges you $5/night for a fire pit, which I think is ridiculous and every day the staff comes around to collect the fire pits unless you've paid ahead. The $5 charge does not include wood so this price is really outrageous to me. Also, if you don't put out the fire by 11:00 pm the night crew will dose it with a bucket of water, which happened to us. We weren't upset because these are the rules and we were aware of them, but some people might get offended by this. I also think that it had to do with the fact that the camp ground could lose their fire permit if the fires aren't out by 11:00 pm so that is why they are strict about it.
The site we stayed at was very large but the hookups are really far away and we had to go to office and ask for extension cords, which they let us borrow for a $100 deposit (which we got back when we brought back the cords). As I said this campground is set up for the seasonal campers so the hookups are positioned for their convenience and not the convenience of the transient camper. In addition, the seasonal campers have built large courtyards and boardwalks that run in between sites and back up against the transient sites. We had seasonal campers walking back through our site for 4 days straight which was unnerving at first but since actually became friends with some of the seasonals so it was OK. Many people would not appreciate this since it's not only disturbing and rude, but invades your privacy. I for the life of me couldn't figure out why these people couldn't walk in front of their sites on the road instead of back in between the sites. On the plus side..... I found the seasonal campers to be extremely nice and friendly and as I said this was the only reason why it didn't bother me.
Also the wireless is not free here... you have to pay extra for it. The website for the campground is a bit misleading about that. There is free wireless, but you have to sit outside by the office to get it for free; otherwise there is a weekly charge. The cable was free though with a full hookup and there was curb side garbage pickup twice a day, which was very convenient.
I would stay at this campground again because the location is just so good. I think I'd pick another site though - one that was backed up against some trees instead of seasonal campsites. If you are looking for a place to stay cheap (well cheaper than a hotel or cottage on the cape, but this place is pricier than most campgrounds) this place will work for you. If you want a real camping experience try Nickerson State Park or Shady Knolls in Brewster, Adventure Bound is much more of an RV resort with mostly seasonal sites.
