My husband and I discovered Gray's 6 years ago, and have returned each year since. We are already looking forward to booking our stay this year! Its a quiet, natural setting with friendly people and an easy, quick ride to Boothbay. We reserve site 13 each year because its our favorite tent site... plenty of room for our large tent,... More

We camped by the ocean in our RV the week leading up to Columbus Day, when they shut down. As always, a nice time. Only one small complaint, WI-FI signal was very weak, so I had to do my work outside. Best office view ever, though!

We had a wonderful time with our 2 dogs at this wonderful spot. Beautifully kept up among majestic pines. The campsites ( both RV and tent sites} were nicely spread apart for privacy. It is a short walk to the beach and dock where the lobster boats come in. You can buy fresh lobster , they will even cook it... More

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

Hello, Thanks for the nice review for our Campground. We are glad you think it's convenient to Boothbay Harbor & that it's a nice spot. We redid the sites in part of the campground, that you mention, to get some of the larger rigs in. We wanted to keep it visually beautiful with grass, beautiful hydrangeas, some shade & no... 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.
