“Good for all ages”
Reviewed 15 August 2014

First came here as a child, then with kids of my own, and now as a carefree adult. It works for all! Good info available, lots of clean restrooms, nature trails, and you can picnic in the park (no picnic tables but you can either bring a blanket/chairs or use one of their benches). We picked up a lunch across the street at the Eastham Superette and enjoyed a picnic by the pond.

“Good stop on your way into the national park”
Reviewed 10 August 2014

We stopped here on our way into the park. They have maps. The rangers seemed knowledgeable and can provide information and recommendations about the park. They also have various short documentaries that run often. There is a nice view of the salt pond from the back. There is also a gift shop. They also have a museum but we did not have a chance to look at it.

I also believe they sell fire/campfire permits here. There was a line of people waiting for the doors to open to buy the permits and we went midweek. I think there is a limited number of permits, the reason people were sitting in folding chairs to wait o buy their campfire permit.

“Wonderful Learning Experience”
Reviewed 6 August 2014

We learned so much about the ecosystem and the endangered species in this part of the country. Saw a display about the endangered Plover, and a day later we saw 2 adult Plovers and chicks while we were walking on the beach. What we learned about them made us appreciate their plight. Also saw a brief yet fascinating film on Marconi.

Beautiful views from the back. We watched a really interesting 20 minute documentary on the formation of Cape Cod!
