Our friends had been going to the campground for years and told us it was a hidden gem... Now we understand! We spent 3 nights/4 days at the campground - not long enough! We were with another couple and we had two tents, two easy-ups and our gear & we stayed on a double lot #7/#7. The lot was a... More

Great campground,clean well kept bathhouse,propane on demand waterheater for 50 cents works well.Office staff is knowledgeable and very helpful. Some tent sites have water and electric.Good swimming for the kids,,,the water seems to recede but then it comes back later,so that's ok.In the evening the light fades away but then in the morning it comes back so that is ok...

If you are lucky to get an Oceanside site, its wonderful. The sites are open, and fairly close, with no barriers, but most campers are cool, and if you want to socialize, they know it, if not, they pretty much give a wave and smile, and move on. I have stayed at Lobster Buoy twice. Its really nice. Bathhouses are... More

We have stayed at Lobster Buoy campgrounds several times. I am a little sad we didn't make it this year. We camped on the shore of Watermans beach. We watched Lobster boats with our morning coffee.We watched the sunrise behind the Islands. If you don't like real camping this may not be the place for you.Maybe you should go to... More

Got lucky this year, site 12 opened up so we were able to be right on the ocean. Woke up to the sound of lobstermen pulling their traps. Picked up my kayak, walked down to ocean. Nothing's changed in the 7 years we've been coming here, even the same campers have been here over the 4th every year. My younger... More

Been coming here since my kids were about 5, now they go by themselves. This place is extrememly well run, family operation. If you expect a santitized RV park, go somewhere else. No, you can't come and immediately dump your tanks. The campgrounds are clean and kept natural. You won't hear loud parties or bikers - Eleanor runs a tight... More

I visit Lobster Buoy every time I am in Maine for two reasons: (1) we have friends who stay there for the summer and (2) the place never changes over time. It is the same today as it was 20 years ago. Some may not be ready for this, but the proximity to the ocean makes this campground a very... More

When my daughter was a kid, she and I traveled on a vacation together every year. We had heard from friends about a magic little place called Lobsterbuoy Camp. We camped there first in about 1990, and returned there every year for years as my daughter grew up. We dug in the sand, let the little shrimp nibble our toes,... More

This is very basic lawn camping as close to the ocean as you can get. I was there for sea kayaking, and you can put in easily at the campsite. One of the days we woke up on a foggy morning with a solid wall of fog beginning right at the edge of the water. It burned off soon enough,... More

Location is incredible, just by the water with islands and calm, protected water. Showers require a quarter for 5 minutes of supposedly hot water. All I could get for 50 cents was terrible bursting noises and hardly enough trickling water for a fly to shower. My wife had the same experience on the other side, so that was not that... More
