Reviewed 13 August 2012

Headed to the Cape to Bayview, one of our favorites anfter a long time away. Things had changed but they had not, it was still great. The pools are nice and the ice cream shop is always a hit. The little takeout window was nice. The location of this campground works for us, not far to the ferries, took a trip to the Vineyard and next door to the go-carts. Had a great long weekend and hope to get back soon.

My family has two sites at Bayview. It is a great place for families, especially with small children as there is lots for them to do there. Awesome snack bar and ice cream! I would recommend as a camping spot for families.

We just got home from our weekend camping trip at bay View Campground in Bourne, MA. I have to say, overall awesome experience at Bay View. Very friendly staff, bathrooms and grounds were kept extremely clean, pools were beautiful. Ice cream shop and Sat. night entertainment was a bonus. We will definitely be coming back with the whole family. Recommend

We stayed for a week and had a lovely time with our 3 kids. The pools were really well kept and the whole place was very clean all the time. It was very convenient having the coffee shop and ice cream parlor right on site - a REAL ice cream parlor with 12 flavors and plenty of sundaes and shakes. We enjoyed the entertainment on Saturday night. It was a 50's band and the lead singer was really talented. The sites were nice, wooded, beautiful stone fireplaces on each, and the kids were kept busy with all the activities. Overall we had a great vacation here and hope to come back as seasonal next year!

I wish that I had a chance to go, but we had an emergency reason for having to cancel two of the four nights that we reserved for a weekend. We had no choice. We were told that they cannot cancel 2 of 4 nights since there is a 4 night minimum for weekends. No exceptions.

So, I asked to cancel but was told we still had to pay a $25 cancellation fee since it was less than two weeks beforehand. Not 1 week, not 48 hours, but 2 weeks. Ridiculous!

I am so angry and upset over this that I will never go there, nor recommend it to anyone. I have never heard of this before in all my years of camping.

We've traveled extensively with our RV throughout the South and the West and Bay View is one of the best yet! We paid the seasonal rate and felt it was a great value. Location is fantastic and campground is charming and well maintained with large spacious sites. We are staying on site #410 next to the playground, with great neighbors and absolutely love it! Bay View is close to beaches, ferries and shopping. Ignore comments about rules: the rules are what makes this campground a pleasant experience. No rude neighbors, loud parties or screaming kids (kids at Bay View are pleasant and well behaved- including ours!) Remember-no rules comes with a price! Despite other comments, the staff at Bay View are
some of the most friendly and customer oriented people that we have ever encountered. If
we had one request it would be to improve the onsite (free) cable channel lineup-limited
selection, weak signal. It would also be very nice to have onsite wifi service. Like another
poster stated, we also purchased MiFi from Verizon which we find is a small price to pay to
have Internet service anywhere at anytime!

If you are looking for an RV Resort, this is not going to meet your expectations, but as a campground it is pleasant with good spaces. Lots of campgrounds that we might have chosen do not have sewer, probably because of all the water restrictions near beaches. We paid for the season and feel that the price was fair given the area we are in. Our major disappointment was that we were assured twice that we would have no trouble getting WIFI on our spot, and that was wrong. You either have to walk to the pool area with your computer or invest in a MIFI unit which we did with Verizon as an added expense. If you are not a Cape Cod regular, note that coming onto the Cape and off the Cape over the bridges can be difficult with miles of traffic jams on weekends. In addition, there are no nearby grocery stores or drug stores that we have found, so you have to plan ahead. Overall, we find this campgorund to be adequate and will choose to come back because the sites are a nice mix of sun and shade and meet our needs. Watch out for speeding traffic as you enter and exit this campground.
