Shawme-Crowell State Forest Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Tucked into a corner of the beautiful town of Sandwich, Shawme-Crowell State Forest is the oldest campground and state forest in Massachusetts. You might just miss it altogether if you weren’t looking for it specifically. The relative subtlety of its location is one reason that this is another of those spots on otherwise-crowded Cape Cod where you can always find a measure of solitude.

The other reason is its size. The campground has two main areas, each fairly large in its own right. There are 285 sites here at Shawme-Crowell State Forest. Overall, the size and composition of the sites is fairly uniform. There’s also a good, hard sandy surface throughout all the sites for securing your tent stakes—no special wooden tent platforms needed here."
