The entrance comes up very quickly right after another road joins on the right. It is a divided highway with little access to the other side so don't miss the entrance. This campground has a lot of permanent summer campers. It is very hilly with some tight turns. - suerover

We just love it here, the feel of the Cape. We camp here at least once a year and will continue to review it because it is great. It is hilly but nice to walk around. People are friendly as is the staff. We laugh as the workers rush to clean the sites as trailers pull out. Some sites get cleaned 2 or 3 times as the guys just run around making sure the place is in great shape. The pools were open but a little too cool for us to go swimming. Stopped in the ice cream shop a couple times, really enjoyed that. As always great fire pits and good wood made for a couple of great fires. We just love it here and will continue to camp here for as long as we can. - Happy Camper X2

Another great stay, we love it. We had a great site with a great view. Hook ups were great. Check in was quick and easy. We were able to relax here. A lot of the seasonal so we're working all weekend getting ready for the winter. Bought wood and it burned very well, kept us warm all weekend. Just a real nice, pleasant and friendly place to camp. Next year we hope to stay longer and go a little earlier in the season. - Happy Camper X2

Went to the Cape, but unfortunately we picked a weekend with a lot of rain. But we still had a good time getting away. Our site was a little narrow. Would have like to have better Wi-Fi coverage. As campgrounds on the Cape go, this one is pretty good. - jp873

Right on Cape Cod Canal next to lovely walk/bike trail. Very dense shade sandy ground. Some sites very narrow, but ours was large. Seasonal rigs with a lot if stuff lying around detract from the beauty. Water pressure in showers way too high to stand under. Wi-Fi only available 300 feet from office, but office open until 9:00 PM and they invite you to sit there. And there is a large pavilion with access. Store open on weekends in off season. No real alternatives, and this CG isn't bad. - Doogiesmom

Bourne Scenic Park is narrow piece of land about a mile long located between route 6 and the Cape Cod Canal in Bourne, MA starting just west of the Bourne Bridge. This is a town run campground on land leased to them by the Army Corps of Engineers. Management, the office staff, store staff and staff in the campground were very friendly and helpful when asked. The location of the campground makes it a great place for watching the boats and ships traveling through the canal. The manned security gate is a plus. Our site had 50 amp service with gray water pit. We were told only a small section of the campground had upgraded electrical service. There is a dump station for black water. Wi-Fi is only available at the pavilion. There appears to be a lot of scheduled activities and two small pools manned with lifeguards. There are almost no mosquitoes, I guessing due to the smoke. The store had the best Ice Cream. Now for the negative review. 1. Part of campground sits directly below the Bourne Bridge. This bridge transverses the Cape Cod Canal. Trucks crossing over the top use their Jake Brake to slow down in both directions. Tires hitting the expansion joints add to the noise (thump, thump). The noise of the traffic and the braking gets to be very annoying. 2. Emergency vehicles across the canal start their sirens leaving the station and appear to not shut them off until the reach their destination. By the frequency of the noise, they get a lot of calls. 3. NO Air Conditioners are allowed to be used even though we had 50 amp service at 120 plus volts. This means that if you shut your RV’s windows due to the campfire smoke you literally roast. It can get very hot and damp in the RV at night. The smoke just seems to hang in the trees due to the heavy canopy.. 4. No cable and we could only get one station (not all the time though) consistently OTA. We had to face the antenna toward the Bourne Bridge even though the station was in the opposite direction. Trees blocked any chance of a remote satellite dish. 5. Even though there are a lot of sites with grass and excellent views of the canal, you cannot get reserve one. The seasonals have almost all of them. Our site was all sand. 6. Burning of trash in the fire pits is a frequent pastime at this campground. Nothing like the smell of burning trash before you get up in the morning. 7. As far as I could see, none of their rules are being enforced. C section is far enough away so that the bridge noise is significantly reduced. This section is well above the canal. There are many sets of steps leading to the canal service road. The number of steps range from 20 to 50 steps depending where you are located in C section. This section is extremely tight. The larger sites and the sites with a canal view appear to be taken by the seasonals. The roads are very narrow in C section. My neighbor from Rhode Island mentioned to me that the seasonals were not very friendly and I agree. If you can deal with the noise, no A/C , heavy smoke and the smell of burning trash, this might be the perfect campground for you. Until they allow the use of A/C's, I would not recommend Bourne Scenic Park. - ploiselle

Great park. Large soccer field. adult and family pools. Heated. Glamping sites are really nice but $104 on a holiday weekend. Paver fireplace. 4 Colorful chairs. circular picnic table with umbrella. Very clean park. But expensive. We were at the top by the office. You are best to get a site away from the cabins...too many cars when parked by the cabins. - User3274

The campground was nice with good amenities. Our first site (W42T) was more spacious than the site we ended up in, however, my Progressive Industries EMS kept kicking off the power due to low voltage. I reported to the office and they maintenance man concurred that is it was low and couldn't fix it. So he called the office and requested a new site for us. Our new site was in a more congested area and the site was smaller. We had adequate room for slides and awnings, but we did not have much room outside to provide privacy while we were out. The site was fairly level but I had to use a few boards under the rear wheels. My reason for rating the value lower was due to the very high guest fees. We had two guests for dinner (they were in the campground from 5:00 pm - 9:00 pm) and the charge was $26 ($16 guest fee and $10 car fee). They did not use any of the amenities at the park. While most campgrounds have guest fees, I thought these were out of line. This was our first time to Cape Cod. While I have no serious issues with the campground, I will probably look to try a different campground next time to try to find a better value. - Randy & Sharon

Decent park to stay at. The Staff was well trained, and customer oriented. The park, restrooms, and showers were ALWAYs clean. Couple of Kudo's - 1. The Dog park is a great asset. 2.The park is well monitored for noise after quiet hours.
Negatives - WiFi is sketchy at best. 2. Sites are VERY close! - Chris Shorter

The staff was friendly and helpful and the campground was clean and neat. There appeared to be many things for the children to do. However, while this campground had many positive aspects, I would not stay here if you planned on a good night's sleep. We had loud parties late into the night on both sides of our camper, children playing and screaming at 11:30 at night-every night- and people cutting through our campsite-walking between our chairs- while we sat around the fire or at the table. There was incessant dog barking that never stopped, and loud music along with drumming-yes drumming- late at night from the cabins across the street. Could not wait to get out of there! - Charlie K

First visit and off season but we enjoyed the campground, glad we went. We were in the back section and our site was ok but it could have been a bit larger, had to park the truck in at tough angle. The hook ups all were fine and the neighbors were very friendly. It was somewhat busy for being later in October. The front section had lots of activities with many kids enjoying the bouncy pillow and playground. As we walked there are some really nice sites with plenty of room and some others that are just small. For some with lower trailers, the sewer hook up could be a bit uphill which would be an issue. All in all we are glad we went and will keep it in mind for future trips. - Happy Camper X2

We stayed here twice while attending family events (and visiting Maine in between). The park itself is very nice. Lots of woods & shade. Lots of kids, but still relatively quiet. An enjoyable place to stay. Both times we stayed in the wooded area at the far back area of the campground.
However, I 'd suggest you check your site before settling in. At our first site, the sewer connection was UPHILL from where the RV could be parked, making it unusable (since, you know, stuff doesn't flow uphill). During our second visit, there was no way we could level the RV ... there was just too much slope on the site. The motorhomes on either side of us were jack up so high that both front wheels were completely off the ground. Ours were, too, but there was still a distinct down angle toward the front of the coach. Enough to be noticeable. Next time we visit we'll stay in another part of the campground where the sites looked to be more level. - VA-Parrothead

$10 per day "second pet fee" causes this campground to fall in the "overpriced" category. Massachusetts law requires rabies vaccination be shown at check-in. Low hanging branches alongside interior roads scratch sides of rig on curves. 10% Good Sam discount to everyone without proof of club membership. Unimpressive campground with plenty of potential with a few improvements. - goodspinach

We thoroughly enjoyed our 2 week stay here. It is well run, friendly staff and our site (F2) was big for a pull thru with full hookup. Our towed vechicle battery went dead and they came over to help us with a jump start. Centrally located so we visited Cape Cod, Martha's Vineyard & Newport RI Mansions. We would definitely recommend staying here. - kemosabe

The road leading to this park is narrow, winding with low hanging branches, so take it slow. There are also some ruts and potholes that you may want to steer around. We drove our 40ft class A with toad down this road and by being careful we had no problem with it. The park has well maintained hard packed gravel streets with grass sites that will require some tight turns to get to them. Each site has a picnic table, fire ring and was bordered with shrubs or trees. The 50 amp full hook-up pull-through sites had no overhanging trees to block your satellite dish. Sprint 3G phone and WI-FI hot spot worked well. Bathrooms were old, in need of a remodel and not very clean. There were three dumpsters right next to the horseshoe pits that did smell. There is a swimming area at Sandy Pond that can be accessed by a short hiking trail. The water is clear and cool. Staff was very friendly and helpful. This is a quiet park with no road noise. - Road Train

Nice campground. Well maintained. Staff was friendly. As mentioned by the previous reviewer, sites can be tight to get into. Site was level. Cable TV was good, but WiFi was iffy. Great location for exploring Cape Cod and environs. Most sites appeared to be occupied by full timers or seasonal clients. This was especially true with waterfront sites. We would stay here again. - Joe-n-Doe

Price reflects C2C membership-Good Neighbor Park. Campground was very easy to find-although their signs were small. Check in is easy, as the gate guard/staff had all of our check in paperwork ready when we pulled in. We stayed here in September and so there were no activities and the pool was already closed. Sites are average to small in size. We were able to fit the truck, 5th wheel and jeep-but there was no room to spare. Campground can easily handle big rigs; but be aware that the trees can make maneuvering a challenge. Because some of the sites are smaller, there are boats, trucks and vehicles that extend into the road-adding to the already narrow roads.
Sites are close together, but the trees bring some separation. Gravel, well maintained, roads through the campground. Each camp site is gravel. Sites are all very level. Each site has a picnic table. Good Verizon coverage. Because of the trees, we had no DirecTV satellite. We might have enjoyed the campground more if any of the amenities had been available. Also, we prefer to not have solid trees, someone else will appreciate all the trees.
The campground was very clean and well taken care of. We would stay here again, just be aware of the campsite and the challenge getting into and out of site; and the thick trees. Loved the area and the campground has easy access to Cape Cod attractions. - GLPColorado

Good Sam rate. Pond with beach and inflatable island and pool with corkscrew slide and fountain for family fun. Basic site was on small side. This park has a lot of history (not all good) and it shows in the community feel of it. The current owners have restored the confidence of the many seasonal residents here and sites can be hard to get. Plan well ahead if you want to stay at this resort. Limited laundry facility and bath and shower rooms can be a bit of a walk but they are cleaned at least once a day. Some recreation options for older kids near the front of the park. Spent one rainy day with no cable TV or Internet. I hope they can fix the reliability of these amenities. - Bigdave2165

We stayed here for a weekend. The staff was friendly and efficient. The roads were paved. The sites are dirt, but they are roomy, shady, and level. They had a table and fire pit. Bathrooms dated, but clean. No hook ups. There are hiking trails, a playground and a small camp store with essentials and firewood. The campground volunteers put on a great pancake breakfast. Quiet at night. We would stay here again. - trip1

This is a very nice park with shaded, private sites. While staying here you get access to Scusset Beach which is a very nice beach on Cape Cod Bay. Bathrooms are clean and the people that work here are very nice. We stay here often and the area is convenient for sight-seeing on Cape Cod. - BroadwayBaby

We camped at this park on Columbus Day. What a neat place to dry camp with a big rig and visit the Cape. The price is right, they have a excellent dump station, water spickets are spread out through the park and I don't think this park ever fills up. It's got my vote. - monaco cruiser

Very comfortable and spacious sites. They are dirt, so rainy weather could be problematic. Woodsy setting. Plenty of space between sites for use of fire ring and picnic table. Nice staff. Newly renovated large pool. It is a bit of a drive to the mid-Cape area. No problem with entrance road as cited by others. Renewed our interest in the Thousand Trails system. - RJ Massachusetts

The rate quoted is a Passport America rate. We stayed here because of the PA discount and the proximity of the campground to friends.
This campground is a former KOA (you can tell by the camp office building). It is gated, upon arrival you have to call the office via the microphone to gain access. You are then told to find a site, then come back to the office and tell them which one you took.
The road leading into the campground is paved, but turns into dirt. Upon reaching the campground, the gated main entrance is paved, but the remainder of the the roads are sandy dirt and full of pot holes. The area has a lot of trees and a sandy soil....which of course gets tracked into your rig.
The campground has full hookups (Water, electric, sewer). The is no cable. There is WiFi, at least close to the camp office where we were. It was capped at 1 Mbps and would frequently dropped out. Frustration led to us using the MiFi. Verizon wireless was 2 bars of 4G if I put my phone in the window. Otherwise it was 3G.
There are a good number of seasonal sites and park homes in the campground. We stayed in October, I was surprised to see the place about 75% full.
This was an average campground that could be so much more. The roads needed grading....we had a 2" rain storm while there which lead to huge puddles in the roads. The junk laying around the camp office could cleared out. The adult lounge looks like a construction trailer.
If in the area to visit our friends, we would stay here again. But that is the only reason. - cmgoeke

We were in a good site where mostly motor homes stayed but it was too dusty to be down in another section. There is an Adult Center close to where we stayed however it seemed there were some young adults who practically lived in the center. They were sleeping in their car and staying in that center all day. The people staying in the park were generally nice and friendly. It seemed like this park was understaffed in that speed limits were not enforced and kids and teenagers drove and ran wildly around the park. It is a big park and for the area, it was a good enough place to stay. - dldw1954

Just spent 10 days here visiting family in the area. Site was level and had no issue getting our new 42" 5th wheel into space #58 with room to spare. All of the sites are large and well spread apart. While we were there they had an issue with the hot water boiler in the rest rooms and were in the process of replacing. They had offered to allow us to reschedule, but we told them we had our own hot water and it would not be an issue. - dhshaw

Not fancy, but a quiet, peaceful, lovely campground, close to the gorgeous beach. You can fish from the pier and lots of biking along the Cape Cod Canal - 7 miles each way. Scrubbier sites, but farther away from each other. Met a man at the pier who has been fishing there for 60 years - bought a house close by so he can go everyday! Nice life! If you like the beach and touring Cape Cod - this is the place! Great value for the money! - User901

First time visitors to this campground. We were in the Charge Pond area A and half of the other areas were closed. I don't know if they open up more as the season picks up. The beach area at Charge Pond was nice. The water was clear, there was good fishing, and it wasn't busy at all. The campground was clean with sandy sites and that near the ocean kind of feel. There is about 20 feet of forest between each site. The kids enjoyed riding their bikes on the paved bike paths. Make sure you have a map and pre-plan your trip as it can get confusing without one. We were hoping to climb the fire tower but it was locked up. We would go back again, but it's kind of a long drive. Oh, the bathroom had a door that was left open but it didn't matter because there wasn't a screen on it. - B. P. Donelan

We camped here on a weekend where all sites were full, but found the Barrett's Pond area very quiet. Our site (J11) was small but level. Backing in was tricky due to a small incline, but I was able to do it on the first try. After exploring the park, I realized that there was only a handful of sites that were level enough for a travel trailer, and we clearly had the largest TT in the park. Park is more suited to pop-ups and tents. Firewood cannot be taken in or out of Massachusetts parks due to the ALH beetle, but firewood is reasonably priced. Bike paths made this dry camping experience worth it. 15 miles of paved paths; however, they are very hilly, and would be difficult for small children to pedal on their own. The College Pond swimming area is nice and has a small sandy beach and a place for renting kayaks/canoes. The weekend we were there, we arrived at 10AM and people had already begun placing belongings on all the picnic tables in the park. Guests can use the lake on a day pass, so there were many very large groups playing music and cooking all around us. The water was nice and the experience would have been better if it had been limited to camping patrons only. - Craig family

This is a great campground when you want to get back to nature. There are no electric sites and water is a very short walk. You are truly in a forest. There are many ponds to take a swim in, too. We have spent 2 different weekends there and have always had a good time. - User961
