This is a very nice campground but could be made even nicer with little effort. The entrance is nice with good signage, flowers, big area to unhitch if you are towing. The office is a lovely cape style building, nicely decorated with very helpful, happy personnel. The grounds people were also nice and facilities super clean as stated in previous reviews. Our site was large enough to support our "A" but it was in desperate need of raking. The site backed up to an old stockade fence where laid about two years of fallen dead leaves. We actually watched a mouse travel back and forth. There was very little foliage separating us from our neighbors. Sitting under the awning, we had direct view of their sewer hookup. There are a good number of seasonals here and some units are unkept. I will never understand why a campground allows this to happen. Units not washed gathering mold, decks in need of repair, clothesline rope from trees, miscellaneous junk hanging around or covered with those blue plastic tarps. That is our only negative comment. It could be a beautiful campground with its ideal location, but sadly it's not. We camped at Shady Knoll in a Motorhome.

Smaller campground, nice wooded individual sites, excellent restroom and shower facilities. Friendly, knowledgeable staff. Washers/dryers took quarters only, but there was no change machine. That's my only complaint. We camped at Shady Knoll in a Motorhome.

We made reservations a full year ago and paid the required deposit. Upon checking in this year we were confronted with a MUCH higher balance than was stated when we made the reservation. We had the printout from a year ago but that didn't matter. The clerk explained that the price had gone up yet no contact was made to let us know in advance. It was a huge increase and it put a significant "damper" on our vacation. They had our phone number and email information and failed to let us know about this increase.

Also, they claimed that we had 30 amp electric service but we tripped a breaker twice, not the one at our site but one somewhere else in the park. We have a small travel trailer and have NEVER tripped a breaker before. We camped at Shady Knoll in a Travel Trailer.

What a nice surprise. The park is well laid out for the size and amount of sites. Our 34' TT managed to get where it had to go without issue, although you have to travel very slow and watch for trees and other vehicles. Restrooms and showers were cleaned at least twice a day while we were there. The staff was awesome. Our site was very long for a back in and was one of a few that was surrounded by trees and shrubbery. As mentioned above, the dump station was a challenge to get to, but managed without any issues. All in all, this campground made our stay enjoyable and relaxing to come back to after our day trips out and about. We camped at Shady Knoll in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Brewster is centrally located on the Cape. Plenty of places to visit and sites to see within 30 miles either side of the town. Traffic is the only issue, but if you time your trips, this can be overcome. Recommended not going to the "bayside" beaches during low tide. Very hot while we were there and no water. Recommended Harding Beach in Chatham right down the road. Double bonus was that the parking fee was waived for veterans. They saw the license plate. Otherwise, all you have to do is ask if they (or any establishment) offer discounts.

We have stayed here previously and find it's location close enough to attractions, yet away from the crowds. Although there is no pool, the Bay Beaches are nearby. There is a Deli across the street for those little items you might have forgotten, or in my case, the local paper and a cup of coffee. The sites are roomy enough for or set up (big Pop Up), the staff is extremely friendly and the facilities absolutely spotless. I plan on many, many more return trips. We camped at Shady Knoll in a Tent Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Matakeese Wharf in Barnstable for dinner at Sunset is a must. Bookstore and Restaurant in Wellfleet also a good choice. A trip to the Brewster General Store, and a scoop of Ice cream is a ritual for us. We get a Beach Pass for Skaket and Nauset Beaches......Skaket for the Bay Beach, Nauset for the Ocean Beach....one pass gets you into both.

This is a wonderful park! The facilities are spotless. The showers are clean and the water is HOT with plenty of water pressure! The spaces are tight, but with all of the shrubs and trees around, we felt like we had plenty of privacy. Nights are quiet and peaceful. Centrally-located and easy to get into Hyannis, where there is plenty of shopping with big stores. Highly recommend! We camped at Shady Knoll in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Go to Provincetown (P-Town as the locals call it). It's at the end of the Cape, about a one-hour drive from the campground. It's a lovely destination. Walk up and down Commercial Avenue and have a Lobster Roll at The Canteen. Sit on the back deck and look out over the Atlantic Ocean. Go to Race Point Beach and watch whales breach right from the shore.

Nice campground and good location for exploring the Cape. Roads and sites are gravel. Check-in was easy and staff friendly. Our site was wide and easy to back into with minimal leveling needed. New electric pedestal and good water pressure. Small playground for the kids but not much else. Very clean restrooms. We camped at Shady Knoll in a Travel Trailer.

Great little campground in the middle of Cape Cod. We had full hookups including CATV and WiFi. Good staff and a store across the street. Pets are welcome and the Beach and Bike trail are nearby. We camped at Shady Knoll in a Travel Trailer.

Great, small campground with a friendly staff located in a central part of the Cape. Electrical connects are upgraded from last year, and as always, the park was very clean. We camped at Shady Knoll in a Travel Trailer.

A private park, a lot of permanent sites, more like a trailer park than a campground. Site was not level. Bathrooms were locked. Laundry facility was clean and nice. Difficult entry and exit to this park off of busy Route 6A, use caution. Town is very recycle conscious and requires trash to be separated. Would not return here again. We camped at Shady Knoll in a Travel Trailer.

This a is a great campground in the middle of the cape. Facilities are newer and clean, staff is friendly, and would recommend this campground to others. The campground itself is a simple set up and not a resort type place, but a perfect spot to set up while you explore the area. We camped at Shady Knoll in a Travel Trailer.

What a terrific campground. We wanted something close to the rail trail for biking and this was perfect. The office staff was wonderful. The grounds were immaculate. We had a pull through site which worked well for us but some of the sites were quite tight. Very convenient to most of the cape. We camped at Shady Knoll in a Motorhome.
