| | July 27th, 2013 Awesome ParkWe stayed in a cabin here, and absolutely loved it. The bathrooms and showers are pretty clean. You can swim right underneath a waterfall. The trails are amazing, and there are several other parks in the area as well. You definitely have to hike the Gorge and Rim trail here as well as the nearby parks, so many waterfalls and amazing views. The staff was friendly and helpful. You can buy firewood from the park office as well. A lot of the tent sites don`t seem very private, so can`t speak for them but the cabins here are reasonably priced and were great to stay in. Robert H. Treman State Park January 7th, 2013 Good Park, No ComplaintsWe stayed at Rocky Neck Park for 4 nights, and I don`t really have any complaints. We stayed in the Osprey Loop which is full shade and was nice. The campsites aren`t too crowded, and many do have trees in between you and your neighbors but they aren`t super spacious or anything. It seemed to be more crowded in some of the other loops though. This didn`t really bother us though as our neighbors were polite.
The beach here is nice but nothing special, it is a little walk from the campsite but nothing bad at all. It is on the Long Island Sound, so there are barely any waves if that is what you are looking for. It can get very crowded on the weekends though. There is a concession stand open most of the summer I believe. Be warned that the Amtrak train does pass over the beach and it is very loud if you are not expecting it!
The bathrooms seemed to be well kept, and you can buy firewood near the entrance to the park. The only thing that may be bothersome is there was quite a few bold skunks that were walking and running around, and they would get pretty close to you! They didn`t seem to be too phased though, and nobody was sprayed or anything. Not sure if this has changed as I visited last year, and it may only be in the wooded campsite loops like Osprey that have to deal with it. Once you got used to it, they usually retreated into the woods fairly quickly when shown the flashlight.

January 7th, 2013 Great Campsite Park This is a great campsite - was very clean and the bathrooms were good, plenty of hot water. It is located right at the beginning of of Cape Cod located in Sandwich, MA. There is not much going on in the park itself - but the campsites are pretty spacious and secluded and it`s the area around that has plenty to do. We stayed at campsite 14, and most of the campsites around seemed just as nice. There is a small camp store where you can get your firewood, ice, and some things you forgot. There is also a house down the road that sells firewood for $1 street when I visited. There`s mini-golf, ice cream, restaurants, and a Stop&Shop right in town as well. Staff was very friendly and there are directions printed to nearby attractions and beaches.
Going to this park gives you free access to Scusset Beach, which is a beach on the bay. It`s about a 10-15 minute drive from the campgrounds. The water here is usually quite chilly even in the Summer but if it`s hot out it feels great. We used the campsite as a base camp to make several day trips to Scusset Beach, and also made a trip out to Nauset Beach - an Atlantic Ocean beach to get some actual wave action.
Overall there isn`t much to do at all right at the campsite (lots of hiking/biking though), but that didn`t bother us at all with all the nearby attractions. This park is a great value for staying on the Cape! Shawne-Crowell State Forest
