Nickerson State Park Campgrounds

Reviewed 23 September 2008

We stayed here for 3 nights in Area 4 and loved it. Becuase of the size of our tent we paid a little extra and had a RV site. Lots of space for our children to run around. There was a picnic table and firepit. Relative to European campsites, this pitch was enormous! It was shady.

The park is well located for the cape cod rail trail for cycling and for visiting cape cod attractions. The childrens playarea is great and the camp shop is very well equiped and very reasonably priced (we had to buy a double airbed!). The shower blocks are a little walk away but are very clean with lots of hot water. There are flushing toliets situated nearby.

There are lots of ponds (looked like big lakes to me!) to explore. We are looking forward to coming back here and staying longer and exploring the park more. Our young kids loved it as so did their parents!!

Great park and great camping. we took the dogs who enjoyed a swim in the beautiful lake. Our visit was too short, it is a beautiful park/ campground - facilities were clean.

After having camped on three different commercial camping sites in Cape Cod we decided to try Nickerson State Park,mostly because it was cheaper than the $60 per night for other campsites.
It turned out to be the best camping site on the Cape. The rangers are friendly,the camp store is well equipped and the sites are large and quite private.There was ample room for 2 tents, our cars and our boat without infringing on any other camper's privacy.
Then there are the ponds. No more getting in the car to find a pond!! We could walk from our tent to the pond!! This saved us a lot of wasted traffic time and it made our trip far more relaxed.
The best part is the unspoiled nature setting of the sites,instead of bulldozer straightened rectangular campsites that are piled on top of each other.We felt that we were guests in one of nature's prime spots.
We will be back!!

I’ve been to a few beautiful places, Kauai, Colorado, Bermuda etc. and I must say Nickerson State Park ranks with the best of them. Imagine a pristine peaceful wilderness situated in the middle of an already beautiful Cape Cod. The kettle ponds have to be seen to be believed. Cliff pond is the biggest at 106 feet deep. The water is crystal clear and likely cleaner then your backyard swimming pool; I was able to see down 26 feet at one point! These are not your typical ponds and will leave you awe struck. The park has a large staff of rangers and is safe for kids. There’s no drinking allowed and camp sites are widely separated so it’s real quite too. Our kids love Nickerson State Park as much as we do and are always sad when it’s time to leave.

i must say.. one night changed my view of cape cod. the truth is ive traveled to numerous places but when it comes to beauty, crisp and clean air and excellent fishing and camping, nothing could beat nickerson's. size really doesn't matter. under 2000 acres fits the most fun ive ever had. from fishing on cliff pond, renting a bike from barbs, lighting a campfire and being surrounded by nature, i was completely amazed at how much fun yet rest and relaxation was possible. everyone who goes there should expect great hospitality, plenty of things to do and lots of relaxing minutes on their hands. i must say it was truly the best trip ive ever taken. went there one night in early june of 2004 and before checking out had to reserve a three day weekend because it was that good. now im looking forward to july 4 weekend when i get four days to stay there. what could be better then that. i must say, if you haven't stayed at nickerson's now is the time. if you dont youll be missing out on the time of your life.
