Dunes' Edge Campground
Reviewed September 14, 2012

We recently camped at Dunes' Edge over Labor Day weekend. I should preface this review by mentioning that we ended up picking the campground after finding that accommodations in town were pretty much all booked. We are not regular campers. In fact we had to borrow a tent for the trip. That being said, I was quite happy with the campground. I personally think it is a campground for novice campers. The sites are very close together. There is running water for the bathroom and showers. I felt like both were clean. Bring quarters though because you need them for the showers. The campground is very quiet at night and everyone seemed very respectful of their neighbors (definitely a good thing since you are so close to your neighbors). The campground is very close to both the beaches and downtown. Many reviewers have written that you can (and they did) walk to both. We started out walking downtown and discovered that there are no sidewalks. Fearful of being hit in the dark we went back for our car and just drove the very short distance to downtown. The next day we opted to drive again to the beaches so that we did not have to haul all of our stuff and pay attention to traffic. Overall I would recommend this campground when visiting P-town.

My wife & I tent-camped here Aug. 9th thru the 13th after a strong recomendation from a good friend. The entire staff was very friendly & helpful. We enjoyed the convenience of being so close to downtown P-Town and the beaches without sacrificing the atmosphere of a good old fashioned woodsy campground.We had some friendly nieghbors too, which is good because the sites are pretty close to each other. We did enjoy how quiet it got at 10:00 PM, we felt like we were out in the middle of the woods all by ousevles, loved it. We`ve already decided that this was our 1st of many trips to Dunes Edge.

1st time in P-town. Tent camped with children and mixed group of straight/gay women. Everyone felt very comfortable. Great location for walking and biking to town or beach bike paths. You do need to navigate a short area along busy rt 6 & intersection before safer travel for kids. Sites are small & close together so get a map and choose your site carefully as left side backs up to houses. Bath houses are relatively clean, but with no soap or anything to dry your hands with. Biggest bummer was lack of campfires, but supposedly rules of Nat'l seashore. We will go back again.

It's great being within walking distance of Ptown, and less than a mile from the bike path that goes to Race Point Beach. The campsites are very close together (though at least they're mostly tent sites), and the bathroom look (and smell) as if they date from the '40s. I think decades of urine has soaked into the concrete and wood of the buidlings...no getting rid of it now. It would also be nice to have liquid hand soap in the bathrooms. You need to bring your own.

I camped there for the first time last weekend and it is the nicest, well taken care campground we have ever stayed in. The front office staff was very attentive. The store had everything you forgot at home and price was right on target for a campground that was walking distance into town. TIP: Bring your bike! The bike trail to Race Point Beach is spectacular and the bike ride into town will take you less than 10 minutes. The only recommendation I have is that for some reason the womens toilets back wall is half way open to the womens shower stalls with is very unpleasant. There were several people in our group of 25 that complained about this. Hopefully by next summer, the staff would have boarded up the wall. Best spots: 42, 43, 44 Worst Spots: 51 and around it

Dunes Edge Campground is a fabulous place for people who want to enjoy camping in a beautiful, clean, QUIET campground convenient to the beaches and town of Provincetown. You can walk to town easily and bike to several beaches. The bike trails and dunes for hiking are fabulous.
This is the nicest campground I've stayed in in years because quiet time is strictly enforced. If "camping" to you means loud partying, Dunes Edge is not for you. The campsites are close together and most people use tents. You don't experience the noise and smell of generators from large motor homes or the ruckus from inconsiderate people. Everyone we met was extremely friendly and responsible. The grounds and bathrooms are kept neat and clean and all the guests seem to do their best to help keep it a nice place for all. The sites are wooded and there always seemed to be a mild breeze.
The camp store carries everything you may have forgotten to pack and the coffee and muffins available in the morning are an extra nice touch.
Finally, bring flashlights. The grounds are extremely dark with the only lights at the restroom/shower buildings. If you walk back from town after dark or have to get up in the middle of the night, it will be extremely difficult to navigate without a flashlight.

My one suggestion: Install soap dispensers at the sinks in the bathrooms to encourage handwashing.

I LOVED Dunes Edge Campground. The location was awesome....it is far enough out of town that you feel like you are camping, yet close enough for a 10 minute bike ride into the center of P-town. I have been coming to P-town for years and never camped before. It is also right next door to an incredible biking/hiking path that the town created that weaves through the dunes and along the ocean and bogs....I never knew it was there! it was a 20 minute bike ride to Hering Beach. The people at the visitor house/general store were awesome and very helpful. The sites were clean and all the other campers were very nice. There were a mix of families...some with kids some without. I am a gay man and all were friendly. If you are looking for a wilderness campsite that is in the middle of a wild forest where you cant see any neighbor houses or hear any other campers snoring at night....then head out to Wyoming. This is camping in Provincetown! Get over it. I would def. go there again and i cant wait to plan my next trip.
