Quiet and scenic camping on Cape Cod/Provincetown

by samtin

Can anyone recommend any nice campsites on the Cape? Ideally one near Provincetown and one the South end of the Cape. We have a small two man tent and prefer peaceful campsites even if undeveloped over higly developed and commercialised campsites. A scenic spot/nice view would be great. we'll be visiting in June as part of tour of New England and probably staying two nights on the Cape.

Many thanks,
Sam from England

There are two campgrounds in Provincetown, Coastal Acres and Dunes Edge . They are both walking distance to town and beaches, though Coastal Acres is more convenient... you have to cross the one and only highway to get into town from Dunes Edge. These are your only choices out here & both are OK (but yes, there will be some RVs in the park but probably not too many in June...July and August it gets really crowded). Nickerson State Park in Orleans is beautiful and has lots of campsites... about 1/2 hour drive from Provincetown and at the far South end of the cape is a place I plan to check out this spring, Washburn Island (this is a primitive, tent only camping situation & you need to have or rent a boat to get out there. . Hope this helps.

I forgot to mention North Truro for camping:

In North Truro, about 7 miles from Provincetown, North of Highland campground specializes in tent camping and you can walk to Head of the Meadow Beach from there ( Horton's Campground is walking distance to Highland Lighthouse and Truro's Coast Guard Beach (, as is North Truro Camping Area ( & they are both on the shuttle bus route that can get you into Provincetown.

Travel Tips for Provincetown

A Quaint Little Village by the Sea

by littlesam1

Provincetown appears to be a quaint little village by sea. But looks can be deceiving. It is actually a very gay/lesbian friendly vacation destination. The streets are very crowded with pedestrians. Driving is almost impossible on the main street during the tourist season. Just outside of the town is a beach behind large sand dunes.

by GeorgeJabin

Homophobics beware! Though the Pilgrims touched land here first, there's very little Puritanical culture remaining. This is the home of artists, and the playground of the gay. If you have trouble dealing with homosexuals, I suggest visiting Chattem or Hyannis instead. It surprised me on my first visit, but have since learned to live with it.

by ppotts

Take some time to go to Race Point. You can rent bikes or walk around. I believe you can get a permit to even drive your car on the beach. It's about 1 1/2 miles outside main town Provincetown. Here are my feet on the beach at Race Point.

When one is hungry, price is not important?

by SeaBreezeUSA about Surf Club Restaurant and Bar at Lopes Square

Located just off the wharf, it seemed a good place for a lunch. The food was good, but for 2 adults and 2 children, $49.00 does seem a bit high, even in Ptown for sandwiches. I would recommend a less expensive place for a quick lunch.

Provincelands, Cape Cod National Seashore

by chodearm

The national park system has an interpretive center/visitor center here. Walking in there and obviously giving their bathroom a run for its money, we found out about a trail that traced the circumference of two kettle ponds that were set among a dunescape. The trail introduces the hiker with a pond completely blanketed in lily pads. Following along the sandy trail weaves through forest sometimes opening to semi-arid dune fields. The hike continued for about one hour, but give some spare time to sit pondside, to quietly wait for frog bellows.
