Cape Cod Beaches

I know I've seen information on this before somewhere, but after a multitude of google searches and perusing the boards here, I've only come up empty handed.

My family is renting a house in Chatham for a week this summer. I'd like to bring the jeep down and bring it out on some of the beaches. Unfortunately, all I've found in my searches is information for small ATVs (4 wheelers and dirtbikes). Anybody know where I can find information on the requirements to get a permit for the beaches on the cape? or if it's even still possible to?

Also, any recommendations on places to check out?


Thanks a lot!
Mike

Im pretty sure you can get a permit to run on the cape cod national seashore.

Also, you can drive on Sandy Neck beach, I think that might be in Mashpee.

mpdoran: You can get a week long pass to wheel out on the national seashore... that is your closest bet to Chatham and will take you right up to P-town. You can also go out on Sandy Neck (Barnstable) which will take you out on the Bay side. For a point of reference... you are staying on the elbow... National Seashore will take you right out the upper arm to your fingertip... Sandy Neck is right in the middle of your bicep. Something to note: Its about Plover time which can shut any beach down entirely. Either way, bring the jeep, the Cape is the perfect place for it, even if you never get out on the beach.... and, Don't forget to wave!

hey i dont know if this still helps anyone but you can also get a pass for nauset beach in Orleans by far the best beach to get a pass for great family environment or you can go down father and have a more privet time. If you come to the Cape its deff something to take a trip out on.

yes ive heard you can get a permit through d.e.m as well. Keep in mind they may have regualtions like here in RI you have to have a good jack, recovery points and a block of wood that has to be the exact dimentions they give you not sure about ma though.... my 2 cents

Also, I believe you can go out onto Chapin beach which is in that area. If my memory serves me correctly all you need to do is air down your tires and your set to go. no permits required. Beautiful beach also...Don't mind me in the picture, it's the background that's important.


On a side note, be very careful. The tide has a very wide range. As you can see from above, at low tide the water will go out about 300 yds. at high tide, it can leave you with about 5 ft of sand to drive on.
