was a nice stopping point if you are already in the area. easy walk to the top of the tower on a spiral staircase (and I've got a bad knee--so tells you how easy it was). Great way to see the bay and the area.

The view can't be beat... Go on a clear day. The drive up the hill gives you the elevation. The tower is an easy climb for most.

We stayed right down the road at the Kingfisher Lodge. What an awesome view of the Cape Cod Bay and Scargo Lake. Friendly locals explained the rich history of the area. Slow the pace and enjoy the scenery. Its a panoramic view from the top.

It's not very big but loads of fun. If you are in Dennis, you'd be insane not to swing by this free attraction.

You will not be disappointed if you head to the Scargo Tower. To reach the top, you must wind around a thin, spiral staircase. It's worth the climb because the views at the top are spectacular. It was a beautiful, clear day and we could...More
