We recently stayed here for 4 nights during the 4th of July weekend. We decided to camp only to bring the cost down from staying in a hotel. I believe our rate was $45 a night. Still a lot for camping in my opinion, but for being on the Cape, still a good low-cost option. We were in the "quiet couples" area, which is pretty nice, fairly secluded, and in deed relatively quiet. Our campsite was pretty much suited for a 2-person tent. Enough room to park the car, set up a tent, and have a little space around the picnic table and campfire ring, which are at every site. The campfire ring is a nice touch as it's the only campground I could find on the outer cape that allowed campfires. Note you do need to buy wood ($7 I think?) from them, cannot bring it in or search for it yourself at the site, and they only provide large wood, no kindling, so bring your own fire starter or buy it from the campground for $2. The main bathhouse was a very short walk from our site. Facilities are pretty clean, especially when you consider that you are camping after all! Sinks, flush toilets, showers require a quarter per 1 minute of hot water (yes, still need to pay for cold showers too). So bring lots of quarters. The staff when checking in was very friendly and helpful. She gave us some tips as to the local area, beaches, food, etc. If we decided on camping in this location again, we'd return to the campsite, and would recommend it to others.
