Campground is a great bay-side beach. You need to work around the tides during the summer to make sure you can get a spot on the public beach at high tide, but low tide has room for everyone and is great for young kids to wander and collect snails, catch tiny tidal pool fish and build sand castles. High tide is great for playing, swimming, and floating. Good Times is the best ice cream truck and fun for a break from beach fun. Bring your nets, shovels, and pails, and have a perfect bay beach day!

Two entrances to get to the beach. One is a short staircase which is pretty private at the end of the road, really nice. Second entrance is through the public lot, no stairs, also very nice. Sandy beach, very warm bay side water. High tide is great for swimming, low tide is beautiful, water goes out very far, spectacular sun sets. Great for families, very calm and relaxing. You have to go out far for the water to be over your head so it feels very safe for kids.

At high tide it’s limited space but what sound side cape beach isn’t? Low tide gives you plenty of space to stretch out! Crowds are all families - no rowdy groups or loud music booming. Clear water with minimal seaweed and sandy bottom.

The water was warmer than we've ever experienced on the Cape, not sure if it was a fluke but it was wonderful as were the waves. Not very crowded at all, we don't know why but loved our secret little find!

It's beautiful, quiet, and stunning sunsets! We have taken pictures of some absolutely breath-taking sunsets from this beach which is walking distance from the house. We love going for a walk in the morning down to the beach with our coffees as well as bringing dinner there in the evenings to watch the sun set!

Campground Beach is a terrific place for families. It's so accessible for all. It's great to swim in the bay at high tide and beautiful for walking or digging in the tide pools at low tide. You must see the sunset at Campground Beach!

Campgroup Beach is the best! NO STAIRS to negotiate, gorgeous flats to explore at low tide, excellent swimming in calm waters at high tide, decent amenities and not crowded. Lots of gorgeous soft sand for the kids to play in, and a cool little fresh water stream running to the sea. A real family beach -- we go with grandma and the kids, and we usually see other families camped out here too. Easy walk to Thumpertown, some cool boats to look at and lots of hermit crabs to catch at low tide! Plus the ice cream truck comes by every so often!

I went down on Friday, October 16th and actually was able to stick my toes in the sand, BUT no drink in my hand, unfortunately! Saturday when I left the waves were rolling in and I thought it was the Ocean side! A great beach in the summer months for children to play and walk the sandbars with their parents. No worry here. A short walk from "Seaclusion" [Vacation Rental ID 31161] so you can go back and forth at lunchtime. Watch the most gorgeous sunsets in the evening and drop by The Landing for homemade ice cream.

only 1.2 miles away [Eastham Vacation Rental ID 26306], easy to bike or walk to. no trouble getting parking even with limited spaces and was free! High tide was in morning and evening during our visit and we enjoyed many nice swims at that time. Spent time at ocean beaches as well especially Nauset Light

Campground Beach was so close. We had views from the house [Vacation Rental ID 32340]. We really enjoyed our morning walks and retuning back later in the evening to watch the sunset. We also visited Coastguard Beach, Nauset Beach and Maconi Beach that week. All three ocean beaches were a lot of fun.

The water isn't as cold on the Bay side vs. the ocean side at Nauset Light. Also easier to park in their lot and have access to your car.

A small beach, but a hidden gem. It wasn't busy at all, and most beachgoers were families with children. It's on the bay side, so the water is calm and warm. This is my new favorite beach!
