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!

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

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
