Shawme-Crowell is the best starting point for
a ride on the bike path along the Cape Cod canal,
which can be reached in Sandwich, a mile or
so away from the campground. Other outdoor destinations
nearby include the long beach of Sandy Neck,
a few miles east on Route 6A, and the West Barnstable
Conservation area, accessible through the service
road alongside Route 6 from exit 3. The campground
itself also features several trails in the forest.
Combining several of these options over a full
weekend is guaranteed to energize you for the
next five days of work.
