The best place to stay to get away from it all!! A true Cape Cod getaway for those that love the ocean, scrub pine, and sound of the wind and the ocean!!!! Walk to the open ocean or ride on your bike. Enjoy a campfire on the beach with friends and family!!

Two years ago, we stayed at Dune’s Edge Campground, nearer to Provincetown, but this time we were looking toward a campground nearer to the beach. We couldn’t have found a better spot! North of Highland Campground is not only less expensive than Dune’s Edge (while still at only a few minutes from Provincetown by car or bus), there’s a path...

Stayed for 2 nights in June 2012 and was very impressed how quiet and clean the campground was. The bathrooms are in good condition and the shower area is very clean. The walk to the beach is the biggest plus about this campground. Staff was pleasant and helpful with tips on area attractions. Not having a fire was not great,...

I camped here with a bunch of my friends recently. It was for just one night. Because they don't take reservations for just single nights I had to call them a few times close to our travel dates to make sure they have enough camp sites for our group. They were very courteous and helpful each time I called. Out...

My husband and I camped here over this past 4th of July holiday. Although most of the campground was close quarters compared to where we are used to camping in Maine, we did have the best site—83 1/2. It was tucked away from the rest of the campers with a great view of an open forest area. It is important...

I am a lifelong Cape Cod lover and camper and do not recommend this campground. We are not the first to be shocked, read other reviews! Pre-season campout with my Cousins (45-51 year olds) on June 8, 2012. We were treated like criminals, asked to leave for no concrete reason. The owner was rude and admitted “it’s my campground I...

This place is awesome! I never felt so good at a place like I have here. My husband and I wanted to get away from the hustle and bustle and this place was perrrrrrrrrrfect for it.

This campground was very nice and provided all the amenities that one would want while camping. We stayed in Area 2 not on the main loop and found the experience to be great.

High demand linked to superb reviews have perhaps helped turn the staff into a rather unsmiling and undiplomatic lot, and that is unfortunate, because they seem to have forgotten that they are still in the people business! I rate their people skills as being quite poor, an example of how too little competition can bring out contempt for the client....
