I just love camping! It’s like entering a whole new world where everybody is so friendly, welcoming and willing to help you! It’s as if you pull your car or RV back in time, where people were disconnected from technology, distractions and the simple life and family time is all that matters!
We caught heavy traffic getting to the Cape, but I couldn’t come in without stopping to smell the ocean air, to feel the breeze and that feeling that only the Cape gives us!
Even though the office was closed, the staff from Atlantic Oaks Campground in Eastham, Ma left all my paperwork taped to the office door! After a long day traveling in the Winnebago Minnie Winnie, that was a great start to a great visit in the Cape!
Our site was super easy to pull into and hook ups as well!
The campground is surrounded by a walk/bike trail, miles and miles of beauty waiting to be explored!
On our first day, we asked the front desk for a local beach and they suggested Coast Guard Beach!
There’s so much to do and explore in the Cape area, you won’t believe it!
We took the trail, about a 2.5 mile walk, enjoying the beautiful nature and flowers and arrived at Coast Guard beach!
Locals told us it is considered one of the most beautiful beaches in the USA! Now I know why!
The beach area has restrooms, water fountains and showers if you need! We spent the day there! On our walk back, we stopped to check out the National Cape Cod Museum.
The campground is so perfect for spending time enjoying nature, birds and calm life! We made some friends right away and every night we would enjoy the stop by visits! The Campground is super pet friendly and it has a pet park as well! We missed our furry babies while we were there!
Exploring Atlantic Oaks Campground
Here are some of the amenities! This is what we loved about it:
Fun Photo Op Location!
Great local store which sells basically everything and the staff is very friendly and welcoming!
They have a Basketball Hoop, which made hubby and son very happy!
Showers conveniently located
Wide roads which allowed us to have space to play near our RV! My son and I played several games!
Large Camp site which allowed us to have room to enjoy it, even though we had a 36′ RV!
We truly enjoyed cooking homemade meals over the fire! Nothing better than the campground food!
I will be sharing the three recipes I made there, including my famous homemade burgers in another post!
There’s a local breakfast restaurant within walking distance, but it wasn’t open until later in the summer. I was actually glad, because it gave us the opportunity to cook almost every night! I loooove watching the wood burning and the aroma of the food which has a unique taste! It’s camping at its best!
Welcome to P-Town!
Our second day was spent in Provincetown, a nearby town, full of charm! My brother in law took us there to spend the day enjoying the ocean, amazing seafood, the best cranberry muffins ever and all the beauty the “P-Town” as they call it, has for you!
Breakfast at the Wired Puppy was delish!!!
It was great seeing the locals stop by for a cup of coffee and their famous cranberry muffins! The best muffin I’ve ever had!
A walk on the pier reminded my why I love the Cape so much!
A lobster Roll at the Lobster Pot was in order for dinner! Sooooo good!
Our last day was a bit chilly, so we stayed in the campground! We chilled a bit, get it??!
My boys had a blast at the game room:
We ended the day with a campfire and my fruit S’mores which I make with different types of fruits and three different chocolate varieties ! We loved sharing memories of our great time in the Cape!
This is what we missed:
The fact that we had a large RV and no vehicle to move around, left us with little options as far as campground entertainment and transportation to explore the area. We really missed having the pool as a way to just hang out and stay in the campground, but have something fun to do as well.
The Bus stop is at a nearby hotel, but we need to cross a very busy and dangerous road to get there, so we didn’t venture that. A bus stop at or inside the campground is something they should really look into. It’s a convenience most campers want, when they bring large RVs like ours.
There were no evening activities for families, I asked the manager and she said they normally don’t do it, since there’s so much to do around there! We didn’t really see small children there, more of an older couple, adults camp.
The playground is beautiful but it is in an unusual area, facing the busy road near the vehicle entrance to the campground.
You might want to rethink if you are in a Large RV and are not towing a vehicle to move around and/or if you want to enjoy the campground life and you have little ones.
The campground is the perfect option, if you have a car to explore the area, which is absolutely gorgeous or if you just want to come and relax (and you can even bring your pets)!
If you are looking for a quiet place to rest, while camping, just a couple miles from gorgeous beaches, this is the place to be!
I can’t wait to hear what you think about our trip, as usual, give us a Trendy Shout!
