Date of Stay: August, 2012 - $58.00
We stayed here for 5 nights. This campground has been purchased by Adventure Bound Camping Resort. This place is more rustic than the main site which is about a mile away. This review is addressed to Horton's only. Had a great time, mostly well treed sites & grass. Our rig is 60 ft, and there is plenty of room to maneuver & hook up. The Cape has a bus service that goes right past the entrances of both sites every 30 mins in season, and $2 per ride. The campground provides tokens at 50% off that price, a great deal. Wi-fi was not available at Horton's yet. Very friendly staff; lots of room for pets; garbage picked up daily at the site. Hard to believe the almost complete absence of flies, etc. Only downside in our opinion, the roads were rutted and potholed so badly the 5 MPH posted limit was not needed. Bobcat sitting on premises, unused, made this avoidable. In all fairness, the new owners are trying to bring this campground up to par, I'm sure it will improve with time given the condition of the main part.

Hortons Camping Resort could be a top rated destination because of its location. Nearby beaches, Provincetown, miniature golfs, drive in movie, restaurants, national seashore, and much, much, more are all in its favor. However... The campground (it is most definitely NOT a camping resort) needs updating in both its facilities and management. The fees are extraordinarily high for the amenities it offers. Adult guests are $12 per day and that must be for the privilege of breathing Cape Cod air because there is nothing to offer folks at the CG. Extra charges abound for air conditioning, more than two kids, and almost anything else. The sites are adequate in size but are are not cleaned regularly. Ours had much trash from previous campers. The grass was sparse but sand and gravel was plentiful. Restrooms and showers (2 stalls) are antiquated. The owner is a gruff old guy who is more concerned that you have your yellow sticker in the right place on your windshield than he is to be polite and helpful. He does nothing to make anyone want to return - which we won't! We camped at Horton's Camping Resort in a Motorhome.
We stayed 4 nights at this campground, but did not really spend much time there. I never stepped into the public restrooms or showers so I cannot comment on them. The few staff people we talked to were friendly. Our site was narrow, (about 20 feet between campers), but it was well kept and completely covered with grass. I did notice that some sites in other areas of the campground were not nearly as nice or level, and we probably would not have been as happy at them. The campground is within a mile of a nice beach, and walking distance to a historic lighthouse and museum. Provincetown and other attractions are not far away. Although the nightly rate is $38, we ended up paying $50 a night since we have 3 kids. Overall I cannot complain about the campground for the short time we were actually in it. We will most likely stay there again on our next trip to the cape. I would recommend taking a quick look at the sites when you arrive and try to pick one out you like if possible.

Customer service at this "resort" is awful! We were letting relatives borrow a camper and were bringing it down to set it up. The campground (not *resort*) knew of the situation in advance and didn't seem to have a problem with it. When we got there, they wouldn't let us on the property without the relative. We told them that we were just setting it up for them and leaving but were still refused. We were then rudely told that we could not stay on the property with the camper and had to come back when the relative got there. That left us driving around Truro with a camper for 2 hours in the summer traffic. After arriving with the relative, they had to pay almost $20 in visitor fees just for the privilege of setting up our camper for them. Our relatives had to leave their car behind a barn while we brought the camper in because only 1 car was allowed on site. The rules at this campground are ridiculous. Their "full hookups" also do not include sewage hookups and if you want to use your airconditioner, it's an additional fee. The owner would be around to check if you were using the a/c or not if you chose not to pay for it. The playground is also very outdated and consisted of swings only. The customer service at this place was awful and they do not know the meaning of hospitality. Stay far away from this one when looking for a place to stay.

We've made around six visits to this (my favorite) Cape Cod campground. The sites are well maintained, and afford, thanks to well located trees/shrubs, privacy that's not usually found. No water view, but you can hear the surf on the backside of the Cape. A few minutes walk thru typical CC woodlands and kettleholes will bring you to Highland Light. 2 minutes in a vehicle, and you're at an ocean beach. No traffic noises, beautiful scenery, and that clear air. Works for us. Probably the best kept secret on the Cape. We camped at Horton's Camping Resort in a Travel Trailer.
