Welcome to North of Highland Camping Area

Located near the tip of Cape Cod, on almost 60 acres of pine forest.  Since the campground is completely surrounded by the Cape Cod National Seashore camping at North of Highland is only a quick 1/2 mile walk from Head of the Meadow Beach.

Our campground map should give you a good understanding for the layout of our campsites and the location of our facilities, such as our recreation building, camp store, hot showers, laundry, quiet room and restrooms.  It also gives you some idea of the overall scale of North of Highland Camping Area.

Unfortunately what this campground map does not do very well is to convey any of the natural beauty of our campground, showing how our sites are nestled among the pine trees in the heart of the Cape Cod National Seashore Park. 

So please keep in mind that because our campground is completely surrounded by the Cape Cod National Seashore camping at North of Highland means camping in the midst of the natural wonders of Cape Cod.   We have provided the two aerial photos (below) to give you a better appreciation for how just naturally wooded our campground and the surrounding pine forest of the Cape Cod National Park really are.   Although these two aerial photos were taken several years ago, they still give an accurate picture of the natural beauty of our campground.  These photos also provide some context to show just how closely North of Highland Camping Area sits to Head of the Meadow Beach and to the tip of Cape Cod.

You will see Head of the Meadow Beach toward the top right edge of this first photo.  The parking lot on the far right is the Head of the Meadow Beach parking for the town of Truro, while just to its left is the Cape Cod National Seashore beach.   If you look closely in the photo where we have typed “Path to Beach” you can actually see a portion of the sandy path leading from the campground to Head of the Meadow Beach as it winds through the trees of the Cape Cod National Seashore.

In this second photo you will see Head of the Meadow Road running along the bottom portion of the photograph, just below the campground.  Once again North of Highland is shown totally encompassed by the pine forest of the Cape Cod National Seashore camping in this secluded setting with the curved tip of Cape Cod nearby is what makes North of Highland so special.
