Camping on Martha’s Vineyard

People from all over the world visit Martha’s Vineyard, especially during the summer months. Although there are many options as far as where to stay for your vacation, camping is an excellent option. A great spot to go camping on the island is the Martha’s Vineyard Family Campground. Here’s a little history on the site. It actually began as a wooded lot back in 1968 when Charles and Jeanne Feeney purchased the land. Charles had always dreamed of having a place where his family could not only go camping, but also call it their own.

Their adventure began by converting an old bus into a camper and clearing out a site on his newly purchased land. Eventually, Charles' job relocated him to California. So, he decided to make his family campsite available to the public, and it grew from there. The campground officially opened in 1972. It’s been a family run enterprise ever since. Now, visitors from all corners of the globe can enjoy the gorgeous beaches, amazing fishing, nearby villages, and spectacular sunsets. There really is no place on earth quite like the Martha’s Vineyard Family Campground. The campground is not only one of the most beautiful places in New England, but also fun for the entire family. 

Amenities include…

Indoor Restrooms, Free Hot Showers, Camp Store, Coin Operated Laundry, Recreation Room, Playground, Volleyball / Badminton Area, Basketball Hoop, Recreational Field, Community Fire Pit, Wi-Fi Hotspot, Dump Station, Recycling, and Adult Bike Rentals. There are a ton of things to do, places to see, and beaches to explore outside of the campground on the island of Martha’s Vineyard.
