Campgrounds Beach Harwich
The Campgrounds is a self-described "funky little neighborhood" in Harwich Port that makes oceanfront living accessible to the masses. Initially carved out of the site of summertime religious meetings in the 1800s, the former Ocean Grove Campgrounds brought together true believers in tents for a series of religious revival meetings. Rainy weather prompted the construction of wooden platforms for these tents which eventually evolved into tiny cottages of approximately 200 to 500 sf which remain today, despite renovations and the addition of second stories.
Many of these historic homes have been owned by the same families for years and make a relaxing gathering place for generations of families and friends to reunite every summer. With easy access to the village attractions as well as the beaches of Nantucket Sound and Wychmere Harbor just steps away, the Campgrounds are in high demand for rentals.
The Campgrounds cottages are located in and around Central Avenue and surrounding blocks off Lower County Road in Harwich Port.
