Travel Directions

Martha’s Vineyard Family Campground is located just one and a half miles from the Vineyard Haven ferry terminal.

Ferry Transportation to and from the Island: An exciting bonus to your Island camping vacation is the delightful 45 minute ferry trip across Vineyard Sound from Woods Hole to the Vineyard. The Martha’s Vineyard Steamship Authority is the only ferry that carries motor vehicles and trailers of all sizes. Ferry reservations are needed for vehicles only. We recommend that you travel on weekdays whenever possible, and we remind you that reserving early will make travel much easier. It is advisable that you call the ferry for availability prior to reserving a campsite with us. However, if you plan to rent one of our cabins OR trailer sites, please contact us first to confirm availability prior to making your ferry reservations.

When making advance reservations for vehicles on the ferry, book to Vineyard Haven, if possible. (It’s closer than Oak Bluffs.) Auto rates apply to standard passenger vehicles, vans, and pickups only. Charges may vary by length, height of vehicle, and if there are exterior loads. The Steamship Authority will need to know the exact height and length (of all vehicles when connected), including exterior loads such as bicycles and roof racks. (Measurements and license plate numbers are required for price quotes, so be prepared when making your reservations.) Weekends and holidays book early in the season, and we suggest you plan accordingly. Online reservations begin on January 14th, and phone reservations begin on January 21st. Bicycles and passengers are welcome anytime, with no reservations necessary. Parking is available, with shuttle service to the ferry from the parking facilities.

Coming to the Campground from the Steamship Authority in Vineyard Haven: At the first intersection (just past the Stop & Shop), take a right and go uphill (away from the Ocean) for 1/4 mile. Take your first major road (Edgartown Road) on the left. This is also uphill, and the street sign reads “To Edgartown.” We are 1.2 miles up this road on the right, with a large blue sign.

Coming to the Campground from Oak Bluffs and all other ferries: Go to Vineyard Haven via Beach Road. Continue 1/4 mile past the Cumberland Farms convenience store, and take a left onto Edgartown Road.
