In 1949 Maurice and Ann Gauthier bought land in Wellfleet and built 7 cabins and 4 cottages. Ann’s Motor Court opened for business in 1950, offering Cape Cod vacations. In the late 50’s the Gauthiers developed Maurice’s Campground with help from their three sons, Martin, Moe, and John. Maurice’s apple and cranberry sales and John’s surfboards developed into Maurice’s Market in the early ’70’s. In 1976 Maurice and Ann retired and turned the over to Martin, Moe and John who ran the business until their retirement in December 2022.

The Town of Wellfleet purchased the property with hopes for a future of affortable housing. But for the next several years while in the development stages of that plan, the campground will operate as it has always been. The campground staff will continue all of the great traditions and welcome all guests, returning and new, with the same enthusiam that they are accustomed.
