We spent five days at Grants in September as part of their Fly Fishing School opportunity. It was a delightful and rewarding time--not only for the fishing instruction but the site, staff, food and genuine welcoming attitude of the Camps. Our instructor, Maine Master Guide Tony F and Certified Fly Fishing Instructor, was the real highlight of the time--skillful, organized,... More

The visit that lasted a week this year was excellent. As always, the staff takes care of its guests. The food was the best ever. The cabins were clean and well appointed. The loons were terrible as they stole fish from our lines whenever they could. It was overall, a great year. Thanks

Billdl, Thanks for the review. Although we love the loons and their ghostly presence on the lake they can be pesky fishing buddies. Good thing there are plenty of fish to go around in Kennebago. Glad to hear you enjoyed your stay and were well taken care of. See you next trip in. John More

We look forward every year to making a trip to Grants camps! Yes ... the exterior is rustic - and yes, the interior is rustic, too, however the service is great and the food is outstanding - but most of all, the beauty and peacefulness that surrounds you is worth every cent to spend time at Grants.

Butler89, It has been great to get to know you and Bill these last few years. Camp certainly is a place where you have plenty to do and many adventures. I am thrilled to hear we've "hooked" another regular customer who appreciates it the way we do. The mountains that surround the lake certain make you feel nestled in, relaxed... More

Some of the best fly fishing, not only in Maine, but on the entire East Coast! It's a fishing camp, so you get exactly what you pay for. That said, someone cleans the cabins every day, someone else cooks the food (which is excellent by the way), and they even deliver ice each afternoon, what more could you want? Warm,... More

Hi Jersey Girl, Call of the loon is beckoning you back to camp this summer. Hope you can join us again with your son and his family. We enjoyed their enthusiasm for fishing, hiking, feeding the rabbit and swimming. Their sweet smiles were infectious as was their sense of adventure. Thanks for being part of our camp family!

This place is nine miles back a dirt road and is in an idlylic setting. It sits right on Kennebago Lake and the view is breathtaking. The wait staff is fantastic. All the kitchen help and desk help are at the top of their game. The food is quite good, as camps go. There is a good variety of choices,... More

We kayaked, boated, fly fished, went into Rangeley, relaxed, ate amazingly well at the lodge dining room, had a fire each night in the pot belly stove. . .This is a classic fishing camp - and a gem!

It's too bad a place with so much to offer is left to deteriorate in such a way. This is one of the most beautiful and unique places offering amazing fishing and wildlife in a setting that makes it easy to imagine what things were like many years ago.

I have been at Grants Camps each year for 30 plus years.; The location is superb. The fishing on the lake and the Kennebago River is about the best in the Northeast and certainly in Maine.
