We camped here after Labor Day hoping to get an ocean view site. Seasonals take up most of oceanfront until seasonal closing. That said, a great location central to Boothbay and area. Not big rig friendly and tight to maneuver but the back sites are nice with privacy and grass. You can order lobster from camp manager which is convenient... More

I was sincerely worried after reading some of the reviews. We planned this vacation for several months and we were all looking forward to it! I worried for nothing. We had a great time. Gray's Homestead is very close to Boothbay area, and we spent a lot of time there going whale watching, eating delicious food and just sight seeing.... More

My 7 day stay at Gray's Homestead was fantastic! It was the perfect place to relax and enjoy the outdoors experience. The ocean views and access to the beach were amazing. I particularly enjoyed learning how to kayak, chilling on the floating pier, and hking. The campground was clean, quiet, and dog friendly. The owners, staff and fellow campers were... More

We just returned home from another great vacation in Maine at Gray Homestead! I can't say enough good things about his campground. It is our absolute favorite! We've had the opportunity to stay in the wooded sites, as well as ocean front. You can't beat the view when your campsite is literally on the water! The owners and the folks... More

I selected Gray's for a week-long family vacation spot. My boyfriend and I were in a popup at site 5. Other family members were at site 7 in a large pull-behind camper, site 10 in a smaller pull-behind, and Hillside cabin. Site 10 was the very best of the three campsites - very private with a small meadow and a... More

We had a wonderful time at Gray's. It is a such a lovely spot, very charming. The owners were pleasant and helpful and we will be back. We went with two 9 year olds and we would recommend to anyone.

This headline is my perception of the owner's attitude. After reading several reviews that single out the owner as a sourpuss, we gave him the benefit of the doubt. We shouldn't have. His multiple visits and harassment of my kids to ensure they weren't having fun on our weeklong trip was too much. At issue was the speed at which... More

We feel very badly that you & your son were upset by our slow bike riding policy. Sometimes we do have to ask some children several times before they understand to slow down. Frankly, it is done for safety. Over the many years here we have seen too many children go speeding down the campground hill & fall & get... More

I brought my husband to Gray's, as a surprise for our 47th Anniversary. First night was a beautiful site, surrounded by nature's pallete of shades of green...woodsy, moss covered, tiers of rock formations...forest scents. Lovely stone fire pit, picnic table, water and power. Next day, I took my husband to see a rustic cottage, with ocean views. Once inside, every... More
