“A very nice beach campground near Cape Cod and Boston”

Reviewed Jul 15, 2018

Overall Rating

We booked through Reserve America not long before our arrival and felt lucky to get a site during the week, weekends were not available. The campground was easy to find, with good signs on roads in the area. Campground checking was straightforward and site easy to locate. All sites are back-in, with paved access and campsite parking areas. Electric hookups are at each site and are in great condition. Water service is from shared faucets between 4 adjoining campsites, so good to have an extension hose. No sewer connections. The dump station is on the way out of the park and can accommodate two trailers at a time. The daily rate of $48 for non-residents seems a bit pricy with no sewer, but apparently that is common for New England state parks. There is reasonable separation between sites, and in some cases there is vegetation screening, but more typically not.

We enjoyed biking on the bike path along the Cape Cod Canal, a great bike path with access from the campsite. Fishing in the canal was also popular. The beach park is separated from the campground, and had separate parking lot and facilities, but is very nearby. The restroom in the campground was clean and well maintained. The only complaint we had with the facilities is that the restroom is undersized for the size of the campsite, with 3 toilets and showers each, men’s and women’s, for a pretty large number of campsites

“Very nice state park although more expensive for non-MA residents”

Reviewed Jun 27, 2018

Overall Rating

This is a beautiful state park just before the bridge over to Cape Cod and Sandwich. Some sites looked very close together near the front and they were open with no privacy. We were in site 21 near the back that had a good amount of space and privacy. We have a 41 ft 5th wheel and had just enough space with the truck parked sideways across the driveway. The 7 mile bike path along the canal is beautiful and can be accessed from the campground. The beach access is also convenient. Check-in was a bit of a hassle because we got there at 12:50 and they will not let anyone check in until precisely 1pm. So I had to join the long line of others waiting until 1pm. I understand not allowing early check-in, but a few minutes shouldn't be a big deal. We also didn't intentionally show up early, but we were coming from another park in RI where we had to leave by 11 and it didn't take quite 2 hours to get to Scusset Beach no matter how slow we drove. This park is pretty expensive for a state park with no sewer hookups, but it's partly because of the out-of-state up-charge. That seems a little unfriendly to me considering we are from Florida which does not charge extra at the state parks for out-of-state visitors. I guess Florida is more welcoming to tourists. Verizon, AT&T and T-Mobile all worked well. Flynns Irish Pub serves fantastic specialty burgers, we liked them so much we went twice. They are on special on Tuesdays.
