14 Parks near Dennis Port, Massachusetts

Location was easy to find and navigate. Being located mid cape, it provided a nice base camp for exploring all parts of Cape Cod. Staff was very friendly, and we were escorted to the site, thankfully. Interior roads are paved, but narrow, and wind through the crowded maze of mostly seasonal and permanent park models to the RV site. Site itself was concrete and we were on an end so had plenty of grass area and privacy. Utilities were well located and worked fine. Bathrooms were close by and needed a code to enter. Private beach was right across the road, an easy walk with chairs and cooler. On the weekends the private beach was a blessing, as the adjacent public beach became quite crowded. There is one restaurant/bar within walking distance and we ate their once. It was okay and the prices were decent. We would definitely return here. - MissMyGolden

Easy access from major highway. Call for directions as entrance to the park is easier to make coming from the opposite direction that the GPS will direct you. Check in was pleasant and easy. Gated community with card access.
First on the list is internet access. While they have Tengo here with free passes, if it is a holiday weekend and the park is full, internet of any kind does not work. Verizon is also non existent on these days and wound up being almost useless to us the entire time with a poor signal on our Mifi. Satellite access no problem in most sites.
There are several transient sites interspersed throughout this park among many small cottages and permanent parked RV's. Residents are mostly friendly. Sites are nicely landscaped and pleasant to look at. Four paved RV sites face the busy Old Wharf Rd. with a white fence separating sites from the road. Our site was one of these and a little difficult to get in and out of with our Big Rig. Paved pad was just long enough for the coach. Had to park our car beside of the coach on the grass. Utilities are easily accessible. Small shade trees in the park. Most all sites have concrete pads with all having picnic tables. No campfires permitted. Did not use restrooms.
There is a sidewalk alongside Old Wharf Rd. across from the campground that has many walkers, joggers and runners. Park is pet friendly until mid June and no dogs allowed on "small" beach area after Memorial Day until later in the season, no exceptions as the sign says.
Lots of things to do close by as this is a historical area. Many seafood restaurants in the area. Grocery stores easily accessible. - eaglesfan

Location, location, location! Right accross the road from the beach. The "premium pull-in sites" have a concrete pad with full hookups, cable TV and a picnic table. There are only 4 of these sites directly accross the road from the beach, so reserve early. Although this is a PA park, they don't offer this discount on these sites, however they did offer the 10% Good Sam discount. The park has other premium and standard sites where they offer the PA discount, but not accross from the beach. While this is a good sized park they have only about 30 RV sites. The rest of the sites are small cottages. - Michael Kibler

We stayed here in late September/early October. The park is primarily for seasonal mobile homes and permanent RVs; very few were actually occupied this late in the season (the Cape is a "summer location"). There are few temporary "RV" spots here. However, we were very happy with this park because it is in a super-quiet area and is full of beautiful trees; it is a lovely park. The seasonal RVs are mostly quite nice ones, too. This is a well-kept park. Though sites are a little close together, we had plenty of room for our 30 foot trailer and large truck. There as plenty of room to open our slides. There is a playground here and a nice walking path. There is basically no wifi-- you have to go to the club house or something like that; I just hotspotted into my AT&T phone, which worked fine. - beckydmc

This is primarily a summer residential camp. The toilets and showers are very old with few amenities. There was not even a hook in the shower. But there were spiders and moths. There were also lots of little worms dropping from the trees - something that would not happen all the time - we just managed to hit worm season. Very nice pool. - suerover

This park is not for actual campers. It is a mobile home park for permanent residents. There were few actual RVers and campers. There was very little, if anything, going on in the park. No activities. The bathrooms and showers were filthy, unkempt and unsafe. There was actually an electrical cord hanging in the women's shower without a GFI plug. Very unsafe. The internet access was extremely limited. Only 4 consecutive hours of Wi Fi and you needed to be at one location in order to receive it. It was not a good location to the area. We will Never return here. - smartrv7

This is a large, family-owned campground nestled among the hills and trees. It is centrally located on Cape Cod. The office and camp store are well equipped and staffed. It has some facilities and events for kids and families, though I did not use these.
The campsites are rather artfully placed among the trees and hills. Even though they are rather close together, they don't feel crowded. I really liked my site on Loop C. Facilities were above average, restrooms very clean and roomy.
All in all, this is a great campground. My only real annoyance is the half-mile or so of bumpy gravel road at the entrance. I also wish they had laundry facilities. I recommend this facility to others and will return if ever in the area again. - BobbyG2016

This park is tough on your first stay go maneuver in with a larger RV but once you have done it once it is easier. The park is quiet at night and has plenty of room on all sites to give you privacy. Very easy in and out of the park from the road but the signage is a little tricky for the first time. Plenty of room to walk the dogs but watch for tics. - cbrew

Sweetland is a large campground located just about central Cape Cod. It is as called Sweetland Forest because it is an atypical campground with a lot of trees and the sense of being in a forest. Starting at the road driving in, the cg is about a 1/2 mile in from the main highway, most or all roads are hard packed sand. Roadways within the cg are somewhat narrow and though they have some sites near the office to back in larger campers, some very large 40 ft. motorhomes or 5th wheels would have a hard time navigating through the park. My wife and I loved this park because of the quiet sandy forested setting. The campsites are also hard packed sand and for the most part pretty level. Some sites may be a bit challenging to either enter or exit from depending on which way you come into your site. We had move from one site to another because we added additional nights at a later date. Our first site only had 30amp service. We had trouble with breakers in our rig popping. Could not run one AC even with nothing on. Contacted the office and they sent a fellows out who found out my pedestal was only showing 106 volts, or a brown out. Later, we ran the AC. When I moved from the first site I did damage to my motor home basement doors that dragged on the slope of the campsite as I exited the site. However, if I would of gone the other way this probably wouldn't of happened, but I didn't want to drag my empty dolly around the bumpy narrow twisting road to our new site. Rests rooms were clean with 4 toilets in each, three sinks and two showers which were a little small. Water pressure in the showers was great and the water was as hot as my home. Office staff was excellent checking in and very helpful in suggestions of things to do and see on Cape Cod. One waterfront restaurant suggested by them became our go-to while there. This campground represents to my wife and I why we like to camp. We are already wondering how soon if will be until we return. - vincee

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. - NJMom

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. - Tony Burns

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. - Beer Belly

Quiet state CG, very rustic, located in the middle of Cape Cod. Surrounded by woods, I loved it. We camped in my Volkswagon Westfalia, and didn't even need the awning, the trees provided so much shade. Go down the road and eat at JT's restaurant for delicious fried clams and lobster. Park has kettle ponds for fishing and swimming, but the bike trail is its' main attraction.
Note that the quiet hours and other rules are strictly enforced, forget using a generator at night, or drinking a beer. I'll be back soon. - JudoJeff

Beautiful park. Beware, if you camp here in a motorhome or trailer and want to use a generator .. don't count on it being OK. In, NON quiet hours, if some or any campers complain, you have to shut off the generator or you will be kicked out - period. We were here in off season during the week and had a refrigerator failure on the gas side. To bad they said, buy some ice or go to the parking lot. - User1400

Many sites have a view (not access) of the "ponds", lovely forest lakes that make Nickerson one of the best state parks in Massachusetts. Easy day access to Cape Cod, but beware of weekend traffic. Site was spacious and clean. - Eli Israel

A wooded, sandy campground adjacent to the Cape Cod rail trail. Very quiet (at least in the off season). Gated asphalt entry road with single lane (one way) gravel and sand interior roads. Big rigs need to use caution going through the gate as obstructions are close aboard and a left turn is required before completely clearing the gate area. Gravel and sand sites with varying degrees of level (some are level enough only for shorter rigs, others are fine even for big rigs). Campground staff seems to be aware of this as both times we have been there we were put in a site with a long enough level area for our rig. Sites width was very good.
Power OK even under heavy load - 113v while pulling 30A on leg 1 and 41A on leg 2. Water OK, but only moderate pressure - 40 psi. Sewer needs a donut. No satellite access due to trees. 1 bar T-Mobile with adequate speed, 3 bars Verizon with decent speed, campground good signal and decent speed, but campground was only half full. Full single stream recycling on site. Cape Cod rail trail access directly from campground.
Can be difficult making a left out of campground to return to the "mainland".
This is our go-to place for Cape Cod, but we've been careful to go only off season. No idea what it would be like during the season. - SeaLandSkyPhoto

All sites are pull throughs. Rate is for low season after Labor Day. This is generally a very good park but for a few quibbles: getting a spot suitable for satellite TV is difficult (all those oaks). Most useable spots are occupied by seasonals or returning customers who reserved specific, satellite-friendly sites. Most other spots leave the camper with mediocre cable (standard definition, 24 channels, none of them premium) or OTA TV. Try several different staffers and you may find one who will try to find a satellite-friendly spot for you. Lots of mulch and gravel have been imported to alleviate the problems of the sites being on dirt but much of the gravel had dissipated by Labor Day. Sites have been leveled since we were last here two years ago but some spots have sharp drop-offs requiring rigs to be backed out. Wi-Fi and other utilities operated flawlessly. - Mtmoi

A beautifully kept property. Many summer residents but people were nice if you wanted or left you alone. It was pleasant sitting on the beach of their lakes. - Barbara Smith

We camp at Peter's Pond every Labor Day, I have just recently began posting reviews on this website but every year Peter's Pond is our favorite spot. This year we were on site H16, it was amazing and I look forward to next year already. This season we have camped in PA, NJ, NY, VT ME but still our best trip is the Cape. This campground is centrally located to the bay and sound (15-20min drive for either). Its a quick drive on and off. All wonderful accommodations/amenities, ranging from a waterslide in their pool to a Aquapark with inflatable toys in their lake or a state-of-the-art game room to a brand new playground / ball fields. I honestly can not say enough about Peter's Pond. World class!!! - RiggsandClem

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

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

We have stayed at this campground several times in the past few years. We absolutely love the location for proximity to the beach, canal, and bike path. Spacious sites, scenic views, friendly neighbors, good water, new electrical system, improved bathrooms & showers, fishing pier - almost heaven. Only the addition of a sewer system would bring my rating up to 10. TV reception varies by site - some get up to 14 channels and some get only a few. - Aracz

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
