North of Highland Camping Area is situated on nearly 60 acres of pine trees, completely surrounded by all of the natural beauty of the Cape Cod National Seashore park.

We are near the tip of Cape Cod in North Truro, Massachusetts only a few minutes walk from nearby Head of the Meadow Beach. Since we are close to both Wellfleet and Provincetown camping at North of Highland is the ideal location for your next Cape Cod camping vacation.

 Our Cape Cod Campsites:

  • We have 237 wooded campsites on 59 acres of pine forest

  • Each campsite is uniquely shaped to the natural contour of the Cape Cod landscape

  • Each site has its own picnic table

  • Each site has parking for at least one vehicle.

Because each of our campsites is unique, please identify in advance the size and type of your camping equipment so we can select a campsite that will be the most appropriate for your needs. If you bring more than one car, please let us know this in advance and then register each vehicle at the rental office understanding that there is a charge for each additional vehicle. If the campsite cannot comfortably accommodate additional vehicles, they would need to be parked in one of the main parking lots in Area 1 near the registration office or the recreation building.

    Depending on the time of year and demand, we typically provide a woodpile near the campground entrance for campers to use for BEACH Fires free of charge.  Please note that because of our natural setting FIRES ARE NOT ALLOWED WITHIN THE CAMPGROUND. Beach fires are, however, permitted at Head of the Meadow Beach (and other town beaches) in the evenings when you register for a free fire permit from the town of Truro.  Fire permits may usually be reserved in advance online, so please check with the town for specific details and availability.
