Sweetwater Forest Campground
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 5 August 2015

My boyfriend and I had a great time camping at Sweetwater during the first weekend in August. The location is great and we felt like we could drive anywhere in 20 minutes. We chose A-42 which we loved and would camp again. It was probably a 3-4 minute walk to the bathroom (and a bit hilly) so not sure I would recommend it with children. We were on a little circle so there was minimal traffic (both foot and car) but we could a little view of the lake during the day. The site wasn't huge, but enough for our 8 person tent, chairs, picnic table and car. We also loved the electricity and water. We thought the price was great ($100 for two nights) and also loved the live music and raffles Saturday night (we won locally made jam). The camp store had everything we needed (especially firewood and ice) and I loved the iced coffee feature! The only disappointment - the showers (VERY small and cramped) but we will definitely be back!

Room Tip: We loved A-42 (or any of that little loop)

Ive been coming here for at least 10 years and have never disappointed with Sweetwater. Just about every aspect of the campground is well maintained, from the bathrooms to the sites themselves. The camp store had all the last minute things we needed and the staff is very friendly. Overall I i had a great stay and would recommend this campground to anyone looking to go to the Cape. On top of that, this campground is in a very good location and is centrally located, making it very easy to travel the Cape.

Overall the campground was very nice. We went with a large group and we were all located close together. I liked that they had group sites which accommodated 5 families. Bathrooms were ok, not very private and showers were very small and only a mist for water pressure.

We stayed here for 4 days, 3 nights for a baseball tournament with friends & family. The place was nice & well kept. The kids enjoyed running around, playing basketball, mini golf & playing video games in the arcade. The place was quiet & clean. We would stay here again!!!!

Fantastic campground, great staff, clean bathrooms, convenience stores with all the necessities plus great coffee and excellent fishing. Have been going to this campground for years for an annual Dads and kids long weekend. We rent a bunch of sites by the pond and always have a great time. Sites are large and yet secluded by plenty of trees. You will have a great experience…give this place a try…you will come back.

We were here for 4 nights towards the end of June. Just at the start of the tourist season so it wasn't packed but not empty either and it was perfect. Very friendly and helpful staff. Very clean bathrooms with showers. Little supply store and very good coffee for a buck and change! We stayed in the RV section in the back with just a hint of the pond views. You had a decent amount of trees and bushes for privacy, some have more privacy than others but I liked were we were by the pond. Peaceful and relaxing campground. The pond has canoes you can rent for cheap. Beware there are some very large snapping turtles in there. I was dangling my feet in the water at the dock when my son spotted the huge snappers swimming towards us. This campground is in an excellent location to just about about everywhere on the Cape. Brewsters Cafe is close by for good breakfast and lunch, a good little market is close by for groceries. Will certainly come back again!! Really enjoyed our stay here!

We just had a wonderful weekend here and are sad to leave. This place feels like a little community. So many families. Great for children. We felt comfortable letting them ride their bikes around and letting them hang out in the arcade. You will definitely enjoy your stay here. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Everything is very clean as well.
