Does Maurice’s Campground allow fires?
Campfires are not allowed. You can bring a charcoal, propane, or hibachi grill. You can also get a permit from either the National Seashore (free) or the Wellfleet Beach Sticker House ($5.00–located at the Town Pier) to have a beach fire at one of the many beautiful beaches!
What is the difference between a cabin and a cottage?
A cottage has a galley kitchen, a bathroom, a bedroom with either one queen bed or two twin beds, and a living area with a couch that pulls out into a double bed. You supply your own sheets and towels. A cabin has a bedroom, a bathroom, and a small refrigerator. We supply linens, towels, and maid service. Both the cabins and the cottages have cable television, a picnic table, and an air conditioner.
If I’m staying in a cottage, what should I bring?
You will need to bring your own sheets and towels. We will supply blankets, pillows, bed pads, basic kitchen accessories such as utensils, bowls, cups, plates, pots, and pans, as well as a coffee pot, toaster, salt/pepper, dish towels, and pot holders.
If I’m staying in a cabin, what should I bring?
If you’re staying in a cabin, you will want to bring plenty of beach towels. We supply fresh towels daily, as well as sheets, blankets, and pillows.
Do you have Wi-Fi Access?
We do have Wi-Fi internet access on the property at designated “hot spots”. Also the Wellfleet and Eastham town libraries both have free Wi-Fi internet access available to the public. Willy’s Gym also has Wi-Fi internet access.
Does Maurice’s allow pets?
Sorry, pets are not allowed.
Which is the best beach?
All of the ocean beaches are along the same stretch of the Atlantic Ocean. Marconi, Nauset Light, and Coast Guard are National Seashore Beaches. Maguire’s Landing (LeConte Hollow), White Crest, Cahoon Hollow, and Newcomb Hollow are Wellfleet Beaches. You can surf at Coast Guard and White Crest Beach. The Beachcomber, arestaurant and bar, is located on Cahoon Hollow Beach. Marconi has the largest parking lot. There are also several bay beaches, like First Encounter Beach in Eastham and Sunken Meadow Beach in Wellfleet. The Ocean beaches tend to have colder water and bigger waves, while the bay beaches have warmer and calmer water. If you like hunting for sea creatures, like hermit crabs, then your best bet is to head to a bay beach while the tide is going out, but if you like to play in the waves, an ocean beach is the way to go! Try them all and tell us your favorite!
Do you have to pay for the beaches?
Yes, you must pay for parking at all of the area beaches. The only free beach in the area is Mayo beach, located in the center of Wellfleet, across the street from the Bookstore and Restaurant. If you ride your bike, it’s free to get into any of the beaches.
$20.00 per day @ White Crest & Cahoon Hollow. (If you park at the Beach Comber at Cahoon Hollow beach, it’s $20, but you get your money back in a food voucher that can be used to buy lunch. So, if you’re planning on eating anyway, it’s like parking for free!)
