This was fun to walk through the Camp and see all the little gingerbread houses! So Quaint! Almost fairy tale like. All are painted differently with different gingerbread. It would be fun to stay in one. Take a minute and stroll through the neighborhood and...More

One of my favorite little “sightseeing” activities on the Vineyard was going to the Camp Ground in Oak Bluffs. My husband and I visited the tiny museum (just one of the little cottages turned into a museum) and heard more about the place from the...More

Inevitably, you hear about the Martha’s Vineyard Camp Meeting Association sometime during your stay in Oak Bluffs. You’re just as likely to drunkenly stumble into this “tourist attraction” by accident as come here intentionally. Sullen and unfriendly people walk or bike through looking for an...More

I spent a few days in Cape Cod and took the ferry to Martha's Vineyard. The Camp Meeting Association cottages are so quaint. I thoroughly enjoyed walking around and looking at all the bright colored cottages with inviting front porches. It is so wonderful that...More

So the church met there and built cute gingerbread houses. They certainly weren't welcoming with all theirs no trespassing signs and rules and regulations. Walk thru and see the lovely colors and brickbrack. Don't bother with the meeting house, gift shop, or museum.

The Camp Meeting Association is a wonderful place to take in charming gingerbread architecture. Bring a lunch and enjoy a picnic in the pavillion and shady beautiful flower gardens. The gingerbread houses are a treat for the eyes! Bring your camera!!!

Nicest part of Oak Bluffs as far as we could tell. Very quaint. Took about 10-15 minutes to walk through. Interesting

It is amazing that the cottages have all been so beautifully preserved and that the owners don't mind being on display 24/7! The museum house is tiny of course - but a must see to appreciate the history of this campground and the present state...More

It's a must to walk through this neighborhood if you are in Oak Bluffs. The houses and the history are so interesting. It's by far the best part of Oak Bluffs.

Hi, There is a walking tour of this very quaint area. You can either visit the museum and gift shop to get information, or there are also fliers available at a couple of the entryways. They are very hard to miss. Have fun!

There are tours offered every Tuesday and Thursday morning, led by a campground resident. Tickets may be purchased online or just before the tour. As far as finding an informal "volunteer" guide, people are super friendly... More

Taking some time I would say a 45 minute stroll. Restaurants are 5 minute walk, if you are a good walker everything is convenient. If you haven't had all you wanted of the cottages go back after you have eaten, lighting has... More
