Coastal is still quite expensive but has recently been bought. The new management is dedicated to making numerous improvement and it was happening during our stay. In the past you has to make reservations by mail! That says a lot about the place, but it is heading in a much better place. Check out the website. You can actually book online!! My rating were based on our last stay which was during the conversion... Oh and we checked out the bathrooms and everything was very clean. - MakeMemories

Terrible park for big rigs. the local streets have low hanging branches and the park itself has some tight turns with bushes/trees encroaching roadway. I had to stop and trim bushes and tree's in order to get to back lot. Management came by and told me i had no right to touch vegetation. I disregarded their comments as i cared more about my rig than their dumpy lot. Finally got to site and was nothing more than grass field Mosquito laden! 30 Amp service was 100-105 volts. I ran my generator most of the time during the day as power was unable to run even one a/c unit. Management could care less. I'll never go back to this park and would not recommend it for any reason other than the proximity to town which is the only reason i gave it a 2 instead of a 1. - Big Rigger

The campground has a high percentage of permanent residents but the places are neat for the most part. The power is a major problem. We were unable to run A/C on their 30 AMP service. Our EMS kept disconnecting us due to low voltage. The electrical system voltage drops dramatically when load is applied and we rarely saw over 107 volts to begin with. We had the same problem trying to run the hot water heater on AC. Fortunately, the weather was cool enough for fan cooling. I would not want to be here in hot weather as I have given up tent camping. The park has no wireless and the analog cell signal in the area we were in would barely support a phone call. The price was outrageous for what we got but if you want to stay in this community with a RV larger than 25', this park is the only game in town. They do not have a lot of sites capable of handling larger RVs. Therefore, do not come here without a reservation. The roads in the campground while paved are too tight for larger vehicles and some are impassible with a larger unit. The overhangs and side growth is in severe need of trimming. I would never return to this place. Primarily because of the clientele. It would be a better idea to stay nearer the center of the cape and drive to the various points of interest. - Ras2

For my partner and I this was our second stay at Dunes Edge and both trips have been wonderful. This is a very quiet and well kept campground. It is VERY close to downtown Provincetown. We typically bike, but it is also a short and easy walk. The Cape Cod National Seashore Park Visitors Center and Herring Cove Beach are a bit farther, and I would recommend biking only. The camp staff is very helpful and will assist in scheduling whale watching tours with the local guides. They are very knowledgeable on other tourist activities as well. There is a small camp store available. They also have a dishwashing station located at the bathrooms. This was a fantastic feature that we have not found at other parks. We also appreciated that recycling is available and very encouraged. This campground is highly recommended for everyone and anyone!! - dneidert

Having read another review, I was a bit concerned about staying here, but the camp site was great. Showers/laundry was excellent, although make sure you have a lot of quarters. Wi-Fi was best obtained near the office. Our site was shady and spacious and only a few minuets walk to the bus stop for the $1 each, 15 mins bus trip into Provincetown. The buses run every 30 mins until well after midnight. We walked through to the lovely, safe beach. I would definitely recommend this site, and I would stay here again. - Deb F UK

Hard to find the positives in this one! We used this as base camp for sightseeing and therefore the actual camping experience was secondary. We did not have a vehicle and the bus stopping right at the entrance to the grounds was very convenient. Our actual site was fairly nice but close to other campers. The power was good and water pressure adequate. We had full h/u. Of note: we actually stayed in the Horton's CG which is a ways down the road from the main CG. We had to check in at the main office and were then directed to Horton's. So many bad first impressions. 1.) Signage is very poor and we weren't even sure where to check in. Had to get turned around once we were in the park. 2.) Campers are very close to each other, low overhanging branches and VERY tight corners to navigate in a 40' MH. First impression of Horton's is even worse. It is desolate, the store is under renovations and therefore the only access to a store was at the main grounds over a mile down the road. Horton's is in the process of being upgraded but it is NOT attractive at all. There was no obvious staff presence. A dilapidated truck came through a couple times a day to pick up garbage. There was no security and no gate preventing unwanted visitors. I only gave this a 5 because it DID serve its purpose. It doesn't come close to anything resembling a resort. Fortunately, they do offer credit for unused nights which can be applied at other Adventure Bound properties. We will see if those are any better. We would not stay here again. - kjpayne

Very clean, nice staff, sites are close together. Seemed like about 80% of it was seasonal campers who aren't really warm and receptive, but I wasn't here to make new friends. I was here to fish and spend time with family. All sites are back in, just don't pick the wrong road or YOU WILL get stuck if you have a large RV. Ours is 40', almost took a wrong turn until a guy stopped us. Upside, it was very peaceful, you can smell the ocean air, you can walk to the beach and there is a tram that will take you into town right out in front. It would have received a higher rating if they knew how to control the seasonal campers who put fences and ropes up to "identify" their "claimed" property. Which clearly, on a lot of sites encroaches on rental sites. The seasonal folks also pile up all their unwanted items on the rental sites too. I really didn't need 3 picnic tables. Beyond that we will return, but I suggest you walk to the site and check it out before driving in, as I will do next time, for space purposes and parking ability. - RetMilitaryGuy

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. - Sibernut

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! - skipanda

Park manager so rude, we left and went to Atlantic Oaks! Not impressed by overall beauty of park either. - elizabethg

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

Lovely campground in the midst of amazing Cape Cod beauty and seacoast! People very helpful, cooperative, friendly. On the bike trail. Wish we stayed here longer! - GailMOH

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

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

Large spacious campsites with fire ring and picnic table. Lots of trees. Pads and roads are dirt. No sewer connections. This is a seasonal park with lots of seasonal campers. The rate is good for the area. The access road from the highway is paved but rough (watch out for the frost heaves). Interior roads are narrow, steep and rough. We had a "pull-thru" which had a turn which was too tight for our 35ft fifth wheel. Ended up backing in.
Extra person was $10 per night and a one hour visitor was also $10.
Beware! This campground charges $40 for the dump station if you are not registered. - lyzzards

This is an old campground that's certainly seen better days. if you want quiet, it certainly is that. We were assigned site 14, so when you leave the office, you must pull your RV up a VERY steep hill (at least a 15% grade) to get to your site. Our site was a back in, and was pretty out of level and also dropped a great deal in the rear, so the front of the RV was nearly on the ground.. No cable connection, and satellite would be impossible with all the trees, so we tried the digital antenna. Picked up a total of 5 stations, no major stations, and of course, 3 shopping stations, clear as a bell! There are many permanent RVs and mobile homes set up, most of which are nicely groomed. It appeared that we were the only overnighters around, which surprised us at this time of year. The location is about 10 miles south of Plymouth, where there is a great Pilgrim Museum and Plymouth Rock, and a nice shopping and restaurant area. Just an OK park for a few nights. - AlaskaJack

Because there are no full hookup sites I figured the single Dump Station would probably be a Zoo in the morning so thought I would Dump on the way in instead of on the way out. Was told that would cost me $20! (extra). Bizarre and definitely NOT Customer friendly. Unsurprisingly the bathroom was in poor repair (no functioning locks on stalls, toilets loose on the floor) and fairly Filthy. We will assuredly NOT return here. - geysergazer
