Awesome place to go camping. Hard to get reservations but worth it as it is a great location on the cape with all the joys of camping.

We have camped at Nickerson in the past, but more recently we just go & swim at the public beach. It's warm, clear, beautiful and just right. You can rent boats a little bit away from the beach. Perfect place to tune and relax.

There are no sites directly on ponds. You have to walk down a trail to them

In general the sites away from the water and further out are larger and will be more private. Check out areas 6, 6x and 7.
