The campsites are beautiful and well maintained, but we were made to feel like barely-trusted profit centers from the moment we checked in. If you are planning to stay for 3 days or less, they'd like you to pay in cash. No checks because that would not allow enough time for the check to clear before you left. They do...

Thanks for your recent review. We do appreciate you stating that we have a beautiful location, & that the campground is well maintained.

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,...

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...

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...

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.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
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
