We loved our site!! Also, we thought it was a beautiful campground that was well taken care of. We especially liked that it was quiet & clean. I would not hesitate to book it again! It was close to Boothbay & a local grocery store. :)

Would not want to travel in this campground in wet weather. Could be the closeness to the small bog 100 feet from our site that was swampy and even in last week of September, mosquito ridden. Sites were beautifully landscaped with Hydrangeas. All sites were tight radius for inexperienced big rig owners. Many sites were amongst rock outcroppings and as... More

Gray's Homestead is the perfect place to getaway, relax, and enjoy the views. I had a tent camp site, and it was very spacious with the perfect trees to hang a hammock in.

Campground is nicely laid out. Most sites are tucked away and private with trees and bushes. Park is clean and mowed. Owner friendly, helpful and knowledgeable about the area. Small beach area. Recommended.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Beautiful little campground on the ocean with a variety of sites, some with spectacular views! Nice rv & tent sites available. We have kayaks to rent & lobsters to eat! Gray's has a nice clean bathhouse & a lovely natural setting campground. The people in the office are friendly & helpful & can direct you to hiking trails, or the Botanical Gardens, or into Boothbay Harbor. In the Harbor you will find boat trips, restaurants, ice cream, mini-golf, galleries & shops, just to name a few. This is a gem of a spot where ships sail by everyday, & where you can bring your coffee & watch the sunrise on the point every morning...A genuine Maine experience! ... more   less
