  • Shawme is a wonderful treasure on Cape Cod. Most of the sites have a good buffer from the neighbors. These are primitive sites, no power or hookups. All of the sites I have used have had good drainage...  more »

  • This is a great campground. Heavily forested area makes each camp site feel pretty private. Rustic but suitable for tents, campers and RVs. Clean toilets, hot showers and a sink to wash dishes. There are even handicap accessible camp sites and showers. There is some traffic noise but it wasn't too bothersome. I would definitely recommend this campground.
  • Secluded, quiet, park rangers don't bother you or check up on you. Overall great experience every time I go!
  • Very fun. Near ice cream place and beach. Camp here.
  • A great experience! It still gets chilling in the yurts this time of year but much warmer than camping. They sell bundles of wood at the entrance so you never need to worry about running out. Also the staff working up front are wonderful!
  • Went there with my girlfriend for a road trip. We stayed 4 nights and really enjoyed the spot. We're happy we did it by internet because the campsite was full when we got in. Pretty private, beautiful nature and helpful staff. You're not supposed to bring your own wood, but do it anyway : they sell their wood for way too much.
