The Marks Cove Conservation Area is beautiful!  It has a perfect view out to Buzzard's Bay.  Wildlife is everywhere.  Deer in the woods, osprey in the sky, no road noise, all natural.  The Boy Scouts cleaned up the water's edge, built a nice lookout spot, and hung bird houses along the trails. It is really nice in there.

 

Too bad the main access is via Nicholas Drive.  Parking is limited and make sure you hide your valuables and lock your vehicles!  We had the backs of our trucks rummaged through when parked there last season.  Based on what happened there a few years ago, you may want to wear your bulletproof vest as well!  That fairly new little hood was built in a swamp alongside the Cromessette slab ranch development.  It has failed to thrive and has a less than desirable reputation.  Unsuspecting families have unfortunately bought houses there.  Some have luckily been able to sell and get the hell outta Dodge.  Some haven't been so lucky and are still stuck there.  I guess cheap houses built in a swamp aren't good for Wareham!
