Shady knoll is also owned by Atlantic oaks, we never stayed there but took a drive through once, sites looked extremely small in our opinion.

Its about 10 or 15 drive from Sweetwater to Atlantic oaks.

Don't get us wrong we really enjoyed Sweetwater but you mentioned having no laundry there... that is the other reason why we prefer Atlantic oaks.

Either way you can't go wrong!

Don't forget to get a lobster roll!

Atlantic Oaks if you bike. Sweetwater is my favorite. Water/Electic no sewer ok? Scusset Beach SP.

Peters Pond is mostly seasonals and they have a big power issue there.


If all of these ,I've always liked Scusset Beach the best

Then Atlantic Oaks

You guys aren't making this any easier [emoticon]. We do bike, but also plan to take the ferry to both islands different days


If you're doing the islands, then you want Cape Cod Camp and Resort

Ten minutes to the Island Queen to Oak Bluffs and a half hour (more or less, probably more) to the fast ferry to Nantucket.

Scusset is right on the Canal and the bike path goes for 10 miles alongside the canal. But because it's on the "mainland" side, things on the Cape (and therefore ferries to the islands) are harder to get to.

I'm basing this on summer traffic, which you may or may not encounter. When we first moved here, the place was abandoned after Labor Day. Lately it's been summer type traffic until Columbus Day. Most things are staying open until the end of October.

We just made reservations for Atlantic Oaks. As was said, we probably would have been fine with any, but full hookups, laundry, close to bike path won out. Thanks to all who responded...and lobster is definitely on the menu!

You should not have sent the menu this early. I'm trying to figure out how I can leave tomorrow instead of late Sept. [emoticon]

I've stayed at Shady Knoll, it's okay, we liked it better then Atlantic Oaks which we only drove through. Think I'd call all of them and see if you can even get reservations. It can be slim pickins the holiday weekend which may narrow your choices. I also like Scussett but it is all the way at one end of the cape, we usually prefer a more central location and use Nickerson as we don't care about hookups. If I remember correctly, Scussett was redone not long ago so it may well have changed since I stayed there.

The weekend AFTER the holiday is the Wellfleet Oyster Fest which is a good time albeit crowded.

As was mentioned, a lot closes after Columbus day.


Happy Motoring

We did Scusset in May this year. The re-do was just the electrical system which was causing a lot of damage. I guess the state figured it would be cheaper to rebuild the electric than settle damage claims. In general, the infrastructure in Mass is terrible, and the Cape sometimes feels like a third world country.

One note: Bring plenty of water hose to Scusset.

I once had a site (#36) that was 94 feet from the assigned water spigot. On the Reserve America site, the site-specific info on the scheduling page will show how far the site is from its water source.

We have stayed at Cape Cod Camping Resort a couple of times and like it. We also stayed once at Peters Pond, Never Again. They sell out sites and have the transient sites scattered about. The guy at the end of the road, couldn't stand us "rvers". He thought he owned the place blocked the road all the time. A real problem.

We looked at Atlantic oaks and would stay there. Bring your bikes as they have a rail trail you can bike to different villages. We also did the whale watch out of P Town which as exciting and went wondering through Falmouth & Woods Hole on the other. For a day trip we went to Martha's Vineyard from Woods Hole ferry also a lot of fun. We went back 3x as you just cant do it all in a week much less a weekend.

Happy Trails
