and Campground Info
On our recent trip to Cape Cod, we did some catching up with our beach pictures and stopped to catch a glimpse of Horseneck Beach and Campground.
The first picture is at the entrance of Horseneck Beach. The line of cars was pretty long and we didn't stay.
But we found out that the entrance charge for the beach is $7.00 Horseneck Seasonal Beach Fees
Horseneck Beach also has a campground. It looks like a little RV city and it seems you have to hike to the beach. Campground hours are 8am to 10pm.
The camping season is Mid May to Mid-October The rates are MA residents $15. or Non Residents $17.00 to make reservations call 1-877-422-6762
If you would like to go to a free beach, just continue down the road and when it come to an end make a right, and follow the little road out to Gooseberry Island.
The waves are real rough on the north side, yet on the south side of this little island, the waves are calm, and the bathers were on the calm side. It's a small island and there is not much parking, but it sure looked like fun.
