I spent 4 nights/3 days at this campground. The is view fantastic and the owners are more than kind.
The bathrooms are clean but the metered (0.50/5minutes) showers are small. The grounds are well kept and the owners are onsite to deal with any concerns. They even deliver firewood to your site if needed!
I was in a tent along the shoreline. The sites are small, large enough for a tent and an easy-up for shade. You should plan on bringing something to create shade because only a couple of the RV sites are shaded. All others are out in the open and in the sun all day.
All sites are drive-up.
The cove was relatively smooth while I was there and could kayak (I brought with me) and explore the island close by.
I would definitely camp here again as it is out of the way and not commercialized at all. The tent sites do not have electric but there is a common spigot for water.

Room Tip: The tent sites along the ocean are quiet and scenic.

We stayed at Lobster Buoy Campgrounds in July 2017 and I can say to us this was a hidden gem. It was by far the quietest campground we have stated in. We were just steps from them ocean. It is a smaller family owned and operated that some rules that someone going there would need to know 1st is they do not allow you to run air conditioning or generators, but with the ocean breeze we found that we didn’t need it at all. We had 15 amp electric and water. We needed the extension cord to reach the pedestal. The sites were not the most level that have seen but we were able to get level. They believe in old time camping where people need to entertain themselves. They do have their own beach that you can fish or kayak from. The other campers were mostly people that come back year after year but everyone so so friendly they made us feel like we knew them for a long time.

This is a very old campground that is short on amenities but long on location. We camped in a shaded spot for three nights that was very nice but early the second day we were greeted by the installation of a porta pottie adjacent to the entrance to our site. Didn't want to move because it was the only shaded site available with water & electricity so we wedged our camper van into the back of the site as far as we could successfully avoiding any "blue box" odor & dampening the sound of the slamming door.

The staff were very friendly, for the most part the campground was very quiet (we were there right before July 4, so there were some fireworks set off) & it is very nice to be right on the beach with a stunning view.

The bathrooms are clean. The showers are very tight so it is hard not to have the shower curtain cling to your leg. But, for $.50, we got warm showers that were adequately long.

This is not a campground for those needing anything fancy, but it was what we were looking for along mid-coast Maine.

Lobster Buoy is one of my favorite places to go. The owners are friendly, but don't tolerate those that would disrupt the stay of others. There are many "regulars" that have been coming back year after year, but they are a welcoming group. Love, love, love Lobster Buoy!!

This rustic, old timey, small campground, is a gem, right on the water! Love it! We come here every year! The week after Labor Day there are very few people here. The owner is a lovely woman! Awaken to the sound of the lone lobsterman checking his pots...Watch an island appear out of the mist and realize there's a heron 20 feet away from you, fishing for breakfast.

Room Tip: We camp on the tent side, right on the water
