Beach is narrow,crowded, nothing like it used to be. Residents very unfriendly and un welcoming. Not easily accessed. Rude people, water not clear anymore. Won’t go back!! Yuck!!

Great pond is lovely. It interconnects with several smaller ponds. It's a great place to go canoeing, biking, or walking. There are lots of wild blueberry bushes around the lake and the surrounding fire roads.

Great way to get the salt off you after a day at the beach. Thanks for leaving a titanic-sized piece of ice under the morain 17,000 years ago, Mr. Glacier!!

A fantastic small beach in the woods of Wellfleet! A very mellow vibe, super clean and clear water. The view is great. And thanks to the limited parking it does not get crowded.

Wonderful glacial 'pond' that is perfect for kayaking and small boat sailing. Large-mouthed bass are plentiful. Sandy access all around with two public beaches

I'm really enjoying the view, while staying at The Wagner at Duck Creek! You must go and also visit this Inn! <3
