“Excellent Campground!”
Reviewed 28 August 2013

This is without a doubt THE best and cleanest campground you will ever find. The staff is pleasant and helpful! Make it a point to camp at Shady Knoll when you are on Cape Cod! :) You will certainly have a positive camping experience!

We just got back from Shady Knoll Campground. This was our first time camping on the Cape and our first time at this campground. It was great. Our site was large and very private. After walking and biking around the campground we realized just about all the sites were big. I don't think there was a site there that I would say I wouldn't camp on. The restrooms and showers were super clean. The campground was very quiet at night, great for sleeping. My son loved that we could buy a ping pong ball for $.25 and continue to use it throughout our stay. The camp store had some nice items. Whatever they didn't have was easily picked up at other stores very close by. The beach is right down the road. Highly recommend this place and we will return next year!

Room Tip: We wish this place had a pool. Then it would have been perfect, but the beach is close so that was...

Great centralized location to visit any part of the Cape. Sites are good, but some are right on top of each other. Bathroom and showers are clean and no extra cost for showers. Only one car per site so don't plan on having a lot of guests. Store is OK but there is a good general store across the street.

Clean, well maintained sites which allow fires. There was enough space to have a good amount of privacy. Helpful staff and extensive games room and book exchange. All bathrooms were very new, well maintained and clean.

We have been camping at Shady Knoll for 11 years now, and we will keep going there for years to come. The campground and bathrooms are very clean. The staff is so friendly and helpful. The campground is so close to the beaches, and it is very quiet, being in the campground you don't hear any of the Cape hustle and busle. I tell everybody I know if they are camping on the Cape, go to Shady Knoll , it is the best place on the Cape.

We had a great time at Shady Knoll. The facilities were impeccably cleaned every day. The showers were hot and had great pressure. The campground also offered a sink at the bathroom building for washing dishes. They ask that no pots and pans be washed there BUT they have a spigot right there for hot water to clean pots at your site. Many of the campgrounds on Cape Cod are not allowed to have campfires (what is camping without campfire cooked s'mores) but Shady Knoll allows moderate campfires. The camp sites are not right on top of each other. They afford you some privacy if you want it but if you like the social aspect of camping you are not totally isolated either. Everyone we encountered was friendly. As for proximity to attractions on Cape Cod, the campground is located practically in the center of the Cape.You are only a 5 minute drive to Rt. 6. The staff was very nice, sociable, and very helpful. Another plus was the lack of major traffic noise. I will and have recommend this campground to anyone looking for a campground on the Cape.
Happy Camping to all!
