Shawme-Crowell State Forest is a Massachusetts state forest located in the town of Sandwich in Barnstable County.

The forest is made up of pitch pine and scrub oaks and is managed by the Department of Conservation and Recreation.

The forest's two campgrounds offer more than 280 year-round camp sites and access to Scusset Beach State Reservation. Over 15 miles of roads and trails are available for hiking, biking, cross-country skiing, and horseback riding.
