“Inexpensive In-Season Stay on the Cape”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 January 2012

My boyfriend and I stayed at Nickerson State Park campground for 4 nights in July, 2011. We stayed in Section 7, site 003, and it was a huge site - there was probably room there for at least 3 tents. It was very quiet, and there were some lovely hiking paths nearby. The bathrooms were close, but not too close, and they were clean, although extremely buggy! (Ah, the great outdoors!). There are no showers in Area 7, so we drove (I have a bad hip which makes long walks difficult) to Area 6 for showers. This is definitely a more quiet area of the park, although you can hear the roadways just outside the park - we heard ambulance sirens nearly every night. If you like things a little more lively, there are other areas of the park where you can definitely get to know your site neighbors, and some sites are overlooking the ponds.

The great thing about the park is that you are right there, on the Cape. Brewster beaches are only a short drive from the campground entrance, there are grocery stores nearby so you don't have to bring all your supplies with you, and you can access all the fun things that are on the Cape. I would definitely go back!

Room Tip: Make sure to look at the maps before you choose where you are going to stay!

We had site 14 Area 5 in early May of this year. Peaceful quiet, clean, safe. We had the place to ourselves. We had 2 dogs and the access to the water was the best entertainment for them. We will go again in 2012.

The campsite on loop 1 was great. We had access to one of the lakes and were spaced out far enough from other campers. Took a drive to other camp areas in the park and the all seemed equally great. The shower facilities were excellent and very clean which was a great surprise. Highly recommended campground. Remember to leave it as nice as you found it.

We stay at Nickerson at least once per summer, due to its low prices and proximity to the bike path. Sites range from not private to extremely private, so if you care about that make sure to ask one of the rangers for a recommendation. Campground is well taken care of, bathrooms are clean, and the showers are plentiful, free and hot.
( I don't know if they spray for mosquitoes, but we hardly saw any)

Wow!!! I did a lot of research on where to stay in Cape Cod. And I am so glad I found Nickerson state park. The man who helped us check in was wonderful!! We found our campsite easily. We were told area five is the very best in the park, and I can see why. The sites are super roomy, and flax pond is gorgeous. We were lucky to have beautiful weather. But even on a gloomy day, this park would be amazing. I hope to return one day!!!

Room Tip: Area five!! I definitely recommend it :)
