This quiet year-round campground at the beginning of Cape Cod has over 285 sites in a wooded setting (camping site 1; camping site 2). Yurt camping is now available. More than 15 miles of roads and trails provide hiking and equestrian access to over 700 acres of pitch pine and scrub oak landscape. Parking access to the beach at Scusset State Reservation is provided in camping fee.
A good walking trail. It can be very sunny in the summer and extremely (extremely!) windy in the winter. So dress accordingly and always bring a hat or scarf in the off seasons just in case, you can always leave it in the car. Don't forget water! Also the trailhead markers by the road say, Trail 1, 1.5 miles (or similar) they mean it's one and a half miles OUT, not the loop! Beach is a good winter walk and a good place for a few shells but the beach is rocky so footing can be iffy at times.
Hiked out to the tenting are (fee required) in a rain storm on September 13, 2015. It is approx 3.7 miles along the beach side to the tenting area. It is a beautiful hike along the ocean but you walk in sand the entire time. The tenting area is protected from the wind with wild cranberries and beach plums in the area. The next day, in beautiful weather, we hiked along the marsh trail which is mostly flat but also sandy. My legs from the knees down got a geed work out. On a nice day it is a beautiful hike if you can handle hiking on the sand.
Not a very good place to hike better for mountain biking or dirt bike . Parking area looks like no one has parked there in a long time ! Trails not marked got lost ended up in someones backyard & had to ask for directions back by road 1.5 mile hike back to the car ! Go to Scorton Creek instead Excellent place to Hike !!!
My daughter and I hiked this trail today. There is no parking lot or signage and GPS had us park on the side of the road at the dead end and walk. Nice paths and hills but remember your way because as you walk deeper into the woods you go off many paths which made it difficult to find our way back. I recommend hiking in October because we didn't see one bug.
