“Learn why they call THIS a campground! Wow! Interesting!!!”
Reviewed October 17, 2012

Learn about the Martha's Vineyard Camp Meeting Association, which dates to 1835. Very colorful, gingerbread cottages. I loved the one with the sign that read: "On this site, in 1897, nothing happened!" LOL

Seriously, these cottages top the Battery in Charleston, SC for original color schemes, in my humble, though accurate, opinion!

You can walk from Oak Bluffs, through the village of cottages (campground), to the Hy-Line Ferry back to the mainland. You'll spend a little less than 1 hour on this walking tour.

“Don't miss seeing the gingerbread cottages”
Reviewed October 5, 2012

It is great to stroll through the campground which is quiet and peaceful an see the many different types of gingerbread cottages there. Also, Illumination Night in August is excellent where the campground community is lit up by different lanterns and a sing-along program is also conducted in the campground.

“Incredible!”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

I love the history of this area. The fact that the whole city of Oak Bluffs started as a site for a church revival is amazing. The cottages are so cute and I love walking through the area.

“Dollhouse cottages”
Reviewed September 19, 2012

Enjoyed looking at all the different cottages. Beautifully carved shutters and trim. All cottages are different designs and colors. The large gazebo in the center has beautiful stained glass around the top and colors reflect on to the ground.
