Seeking recommendations for Cape Cod

We have stayed several times at the park in North Truro, which is close to Provincetown. Sorry can't recall name, maybe Horton's? I think I originally found it by googling RV parks on Cape Cod.There are two, close to each other and owned by same outfit. Either one is good. There is a public bus that serves the area and is probably the best way to go into Provincetown (parking nightmare)

Atlantic Oaks in Eastham is where we have friends stay. They can accommodate 40' rigs easily. Sweet Water Farms in Brewster is very nice, and should be able to handle a 36', but not 40's. It's in the woods like real camping.

Cape Cod

Cogen, We are here at Sweetwater Forrest now attending a wedding in Harwich, This campground can handle your rig and if you like woods this is woodsy.45.00 FHU cable and wifi.Minutes to beaches,boat rides, a million resturants and plenty to see and do. June will be a little more congested as folks arrive.Dirt roads here at the campground bug me as we camped here with the kids 35yrs ago. no pool but a lake/pond and the place is well cared for and managed by the family for many yrs.Quiet in the woods place. Many campgrounds on cape cod. Hope you enjoy whereever you land. paul

I have also heard good things about Sweetwater and Peter's Pond but never stayed at either. We had a bad experience at Cape Cod Campresort once but that was ten years ago so I don't know if it has improved or not. One thing to note is that a lot of the places on the Cape don't allow campfires.

X2 on Atlantic Oaks, we live on the Cape 30 minutes away and we stay there! Right next to the bike path (abandoned rail road right of way) a couple of minutes to the National Seashore. 15 minutes to Chatham or P'town.

P'town - Take Art's Dune Tours http://artsdunetours.org/, roam the art galleries, take in the ambiance.

Orleans - eat at The Lobster Claw http://www.lobsterclaw.com/ family run restaurant right off the 6/6a rotary.

Chatham - visit the Chatham Bars Inn http://www.chathambarsinn.com/ and Chatham Fish Pier http://chathampierfishmarket.com/.

Nantucket - take the ferry out of Hyannis for Nantucket

Martha's Vineyard - take the ferry out of Woods Hole for the Vineyard.

Hyannis - Baxter's Boathouse restaurant http://baxterscapecod.com/ on the water in the harbor.

There are only 2 bridges on to Cape Cod so traffic can get bad. The lanes are narrow (2 lanes each direction) but we drive them all the time in our coach (I get in curb side lane and take more than a lane). Do NOT try to come on Cape (Memorial Day to Labor Day) from Friday 3 PM to Saturday 3 PM (weekenders are the Friday traffic, Saturday is cottage rental turn over day). If the weather is bad Sunday Noon until 8 PM, if weather is good 3 PM until 8 PM. If it is a holiday weekend add a couple of hours to above and Monday is the busy day. Best time to come on, go off Cape during the summer is Tuesday - Thursday.

If you want more information let me know what you are interested in.
