I read the reviews here and was hesitant to stay here during a trip to Provincetown over Memorial weekend. I've travelled extensively and stayed at many places, some of which were much less than desireable, so I wasn't really worried about it either way. There must be an issue with guests who leave these negative reviews. Yes, the campsites are small. So what? It's a campground in Provincetown! It's a place to pitch a tent and sleep on the edge of the sand dunes. I've seen campgrounds before with no vegetation around them, just one camper next to the other. It's beautiful in Dunes Edge. I arrived a bit early and the staff was extremely friendly. Said they could give us a site that was ready since ours wasn't yet. We opted to wait because we liked the site they had assigned to us, so we went over to Race Point to pick up our free beach fire permit that we had called ahead for. When we got back the site was ready and we set up. I have an SUV and I had no problem fitting the tent, SUV, camp chairs and table along with clothing line on our site, and it was very small. People say the bathrooms are weird, but I didn't think much of it. They were very clean and each individual shower stall was private. I noticed people leaving their cell phones plugged in in the bathroom and leaving them so I did the same. Staff came by at one point to let me know that I could also leave it in the office/shop if I was worried about it being unattended. The recycling was obvious and easy. No big deal. Not sure why people complained about that. You have to walk over to garbage cans anyway, so it's not like you have to go out of your way. The office/camp store is the cutest thing ever. It is so nicely kept and items displayed, with a cool retro vintage feel. Plenty of useful and fun stuff to buy. Coffee and muffins every morning for a small fee. I'm not big on muffins but they were delicious as others have mentioned. Throughout our whole stay the staff was friendly and busy keeping the place clean and in order. I saw all different types of families. At night there was a lot of camp fire socializing w/o the camp fire. People were having a good time as they should be. A few tmes it got a little loud but nothing major. I was waiting for staff to jump out and harrass the guests as others have suggested, but it never happened, ever. In my opinion, people who come to touristy campgrounds shouldn't expect to hear the sound of silence when the sun sets. After a long day of walking around Provincetown, I had no problem falling asleep! I would most definitely go back there again and again!
