Since my wife is originally from Maine, we are making plans to stay a week at four diffrent parks in August. It's our intention to see which one we like the most and then book it for each August in the following years. We were highly disappointed when I received a phone call telling me that my reservation at Gray's... 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

Just returned home from a long weekend camping at Gray's. Calling in to make reservations - friendly and accomodating. We were looking for a pull thru spot as we have a 34' toy hauler and wanted to make sure we could get our motorcycles out of the trailer easily as previous reviews mentioned the tight quarters. First question back from... More

We have camped here for many years and booked our two weeks for next year when we arrived. Just hearing the waves crashing against the rocks makes my day. Don't ever need to leave camp to be happy. We camp in a fifth wheel near the ocean. Look forward to returning each September and seeing friends that we have made... More

We came here in a small RV late in the season, so the campground wasn't completely full. We had a lovely afternoon puttering around on the small but interesting beach. It was very quiet. Everything was easily in walking distance as it is a small place. Had plenty of space in our lot (number 7). We do like our devices... More

Unfortunately there is no Cable or WIFI. We left after one evening missing the luxery of TV and computer access. We brought our two dogs with us and there is very little area to walk them. We had a campsite next to the cabin and the noise was unbearable. Sites are very small and too close to each other. When... More

Just back from a 4 night stay at Grays - we camp in a 27ft travel trailer and had no problem getting into our beautiful, spotlessly clean, grassy spot. Surrounded on both sides with a hedge made of 3 variety of hydrangeas in full bloom. We had a great experience overall - very pleasant neighbors on all sides of us.... More

We found this place geographically charming, but don't kid yourself, it is VERY small, and the sites are closely packed together and on different levels. This is cute but daunting for big rigs and trailers, and it's basically impossible to walk from site to site w/out crossing another campsite. They also wedged a couple in that I sure wouldn't have...
