What a location! Steps from the National Seashore beach (Head of the Meadow beach). Quiet and private campsites nestled in the Cape Cod evergreens. Fall asleep to the sound of the waves crashing on the shore. Wake up early and walk to the beach to catch the sunrise before just about anyone else in the east coast! Short ride to... More

All and all I really liked this campground. By far the quietest campground I have ever been to in my life. The bathroom smelled like seawater at low tide but they still seemed clean. I know that sounds counterintuitive. The subject head "kinda pricey" was only for the fact that it was rustic and expensive. The site itself was lovely... More

Just returned from camping over labor day weekend. The site was completely full but we loved it because it was so quiet and peaceful. I am so tired of being kept awake by noisy neighbors drinking and talking in loud voices so every word can be heard in our tent when we are all trying to go to sleep. As... More

I camped at North of Highland with my family for seven nights in August 2016 and we had such a great time that we did not want to leave. The Owner's are very thoughtful about how they run the campground. There are notices posted to clearly communicate the rules of the campground and to keep things orderly. I appreciated the... More

If you're looking for a quiet, peaceful, clean camping experience, with spacious and well thought out pine-covered sites close to the beach, then this is your campground. This place is so professionally run that it's the first time since I was a kid that I felt the joy of camping. I came with my 4 y/o boy and my wife... More

We don't usually go camping but stayed here for three nights in a tent and loved it. The campsite is managed well, everything is clean and pristine, the staff was very helpful and friendly and we had everything we needed.

We stayed here three nights in July. Nice clean bathrooms and shower rooms. All the staff were super friendly and nice. I did not like the fact that we didn't get to pick our campsite, or that there were no fires or dogs allowed, but we knew this before booking. The path to the beach was really cool! So close!...
