Shawme-Crowell State Forest

Shawme-Crowell State Forest

Karen's old school friend, Mike, comes to visit every August with his two boys and always stays at the Shawme-Crowell State Forest.

His boys love it and consider it one of the highlights of their summer.

It's a quiet year-round campground that covers over 700 acres of the Cape oldest town and has over 285 sites in a tranquil pine forest setting.

And yet, for all the peac and tranquility, you'll find you are surprisingly close to the center of Sandwich.

Parking access to the beach at Scusset State Reservation is included in camping fee.

While most people choose to visit during regular camping season between mid-April through mid-October, off-season camping is available.

We know of one group of middle-aged men who have a long-standing January ritual of camping there for one weekend in the dead of winter. Fortunatley, they haven't yet asked Michael to join them.Smile
