Make Memories that Will Last a Lifetime

Easily Reserve Your Campsite Now For Next Summer


Even if you can only get away for just a few days…

Consider camping with us early in the summer in May or June, or later in the season in late August or early September.
As during these times we have our most flexible reservation options of the summer.

Outside of our Peak Season you can reserve your own quiet, private campsite within easy walking distance of scenic Head of the Meadow Beach for as little as just two days or more. You’ll find that Truro’s amazing beaches are more easily accessible and far less crowded outside of the busier months of July and August when reservations are highly recommended.  During these “quieter times” you can often decide to come camping with us at the last moment without an advance reservation (depending on availability).  Since it is so flexible during these times of the summer this can be a great way to treat yourself to a relaxing day or two at the beach to recharge your batteries, or as a special adventure to share with your kids, creating some lasting Cape Cod memories.  Feel free to call ahead or send us a quick email to check on our off-season availability at

Camping Cape Cod’s Best Location!

When it comes to camping Cape Cod is truly one of the best vacation destinations in the NortheastAlthough there are many campgrounds on Cape Cod, deciding where to stay on Cape Cod is easy…

Located close to beaches and other attractions: North of Highland Camping Area is the perfect spot to relax and unwind near the tip of Cape Cod. Our campsites rest on nearly 60 acres of wooded pine trees completely surrounded by the tranquility of the Cape Cod National Seashore Park. Stunning Head of the Meadow Beach is just a short 1/2 mile walk from our campground.  So we are close to the best Cape Cod beaches yet we are also less than 10 minutes by car from all of the shopping and restaurants in nearby Provincetown and Wellfleet.  So you’ll get the best of both worlds.

Are you going to be TENT CAMPING on Cape Cod? Many of the other campgrounds on Cape Cod focus on large RVs and mega trailers, often parked side-by-side in a grid-like pattern with little privacy.  By comparison our campsites are particularly tent friendly with campsites that are quietly nestled among twisting pine trees. If privacy is really important to you then you may want to consider requesting one of our more remote campsites, which we call “path sites”, where you walk along a short path to access the site separately from your nearby designated parking spot. Each of our campsites is uniquely shaped by the contours of our Cape Cod landscape and the pine trees that abound throughout our campground. We think this makes for a more “relaxing” and “natural” camping experience than anywhere else on Cape cod.
