Known as one of the most famous seashores in the United States, Cape Cod National Seashore is a must visit destination for your next RV adventure. Cape Cod has a long history and has been the home of the Wampanoag Native American people for many centuries. The modern history of the area dates back to 1602 when English explorer Bartholomew Gosnold landed in the area and took aboard a “great store of codfish", thus naming it Cape Cod. The official Cape Cod National Seashore area was first established on August 7, 1961 by President John F. Kennedy and features 43,607 acres of ponds, woods and beachfront on the Atlantic coastal pine barrens ecoregion.
Due to the massive size of the National Seashore there are many different recreational activities that will keep you occupied during your visit. There are six beaches that are fantastic for swimming, ranger guided activities (such as talks at the visitors centers and guided hikes), multiple picnic areas and opportunities for activities such as hunting and beach yoga. There is also a great visitor center that will inform you more about the history of the area and the animals that call the park home.
While there are no RV campgrounds within Cape Cod National Seashore we recommend that you stay at the nearby Nickerson State Park. Here you will find multiple camping areas that are available via reservation or on a first come, first served basis. Cape Cod National Seashore is open all year round.
