Space 2,000 sq. ft.
Property type cabin
Minimum Stay 7 nights


About the property

4 Housekeeping Cottages On 8 Lake-Front Acres With Private Sandy Beach

Please visit our primary website at

Unplug from the hectic pace and chaos of modern life on our nine acres of beautiful waterfront property, among towering pines and manicured lawns where you and your family can slow down, have fun and build memories that will last a lifetime.

We are often asked if there is anything to do in the area. The answer of course is an emphatic “Yes!” See Area Attractions for more information. That said, most families arrive at Gilmore Camps and find so much to do on site that they don’t want to leave.

The beach is the focal point of Gilmore Camps. Large, child safe and user friendly, it’s usually the children who make friends first, followed by their parents, and by the end of the stay “5pm social hour” takes on a special meaning! Immediately adjacent to the beach, lift a canoe or kayak into the water for a tranquil ride or just sit quietly on the Adirondack chairs on the dock, keeping a lookout for a family of bald eagles nesting on the opposite shore.

For more action, play a game of pool, shoot hoops, play horseshoes or badminton and get a group together for a fun game of whiffle ball or Frisbee toss.

The entire property simply beckons you to unplug, unwind, relax and enjoy. Not a single summer goes by without a parent commenting “this is the only place in the world where I can let my kids run out the screen door and feel that they are safe”. That’s our nicest compliment.

1st time Camp Gilmore experience...AMAZING!!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family vacation this year was absolutely amazing at Camp Gilmore!!! It's hard to find a place where each family member including mom and dad can enjoy. None of us left the lake disappointed. This was our first experience with the Gilmore family. In fact, when we arrived Mr. Gilmore was there to greet us, show us around and answer any questions we had as "newbies" The views from the Lodge and camp itself are breathtaking. Our kids couldn't wait to explore the home which has an amazing history, and was very cozy. The home even has a piano which my oldest son played every evening for us to wind down after a day at the lake and some of the visiting families enjoyed listening. There were adventures for each of our 4 boys (ages ranging from 7-16) to enjoy. This was our first experience with the Gilmore's and I have to say they know what families need and provide lots of lake equipment for an enjoyable, and relaxing vacation. The Lodge was well equipped and the screened in porch was our spot for all of our evening dinners. Our family actually spent lots of time at the camp doing lots reading, tons of napping, lake adventures kayaking, canoeing, swimming, puzzle making and visiting the onsite game building on rainy days , star watching (you don't see many stars in NJ), sharing silly moments and just plain old family fun. We visited the nearby drive-in in Bridgton. A bonus was meeting some of the other returning families and our children had kids to hang out with and play some lawn games together. We can't wait to have our next family trip and look forward to trying out some new adventures! If you want a place to relax, connect as a family, make wonderful memories, do some adventure seeking, unplug from the daily grind, and enjoy fresh air this is the place for you.

Great Place to Get Away....

  • 5 of 5

If you want to disconnect from the world and relax for a week, this is the place for you. Beautiful property, clean and comfortable cabins, quiet end of the lake, great beach and nice hosts. This was our 5th year and will be back next year. Our family mostly relaxes on the beach all day, maybe a little fishing and some swimming and kayaking...there is plenty to do on-site and plenty of nearby attractions for every age and interest as well.

No place I'd rather be, then Gilmore Camps!

  • 5 of 5

Another wonderful relaxing week at Tom's place. The beach and float were a huge hit with the all of the kids. The woods and comfortable cabins made for a true Maine experience, and inspired me to do some crafting and foraging. I'm a Chef by trade and really enjoyed cooking farm to table in the well equipped kitchen. The Gilmore's are kind, caring and professional hosts, with an eye for detail and joyful spirit.

The Mackechnie-Cole Family’s Gilmore Camps Experience/ by Jacob Cole 13

Our family had an amazing experience at Gilmore Camps. We all arrived with smiles and left with smiles. The amenities that were provided to us were amazing. From the canoes and lakefront beach area to the game house and the spectacular lake and mountain views. Mr. Gilmore was a friendly man who accepted our family into the camp with a smile on his face. All eight of our crazy cousins, 6 boys and 2 girls, created memories that they will cherish forever. These memories include, fishing off the dock, swimming out to the floating raft, and our nightly wiffle ball, frisbee, and soccer games that were played in the Lodge’s expansive yard. Our week at Gilmore Camps was spectacular for all of us, young and old. To fit our large family, we rented three of Mr. Gilmore’s wooden cottages. The Lodge, Schoolhouse, and Fresh Air all had unique charms that accommodated all of us perfectly. The Lodge even had two toilets in one bathroom, so fighting for a turn in the restroom was no issue to us! Cousins Jacob (13), Ben (10), Matty (6), Will (6), Jack (Also 6), Drew (3), Catelyn (2) And Chloe (2) all loved the experience and are already counting down the days until next year, when we will indefinitely return to Gilmore Camps to have even more fun than we had this year! If you are looking for a getaway from city traffic, loud noise and polluted air, Gilmore Camps on Kezar Lake is ready to be your next family vacation spot!

Relaxing week at Kezar Lake

  • 5 of 5

Upon arrival you immediately are impressed with the beauty of the grounds and landscaping, and the fantastic beach and swimming area.

Tom and Debbie Gilmore greeted us upon arrival, and made sure we had all the information required for a great stay in the greater Fryburg/North Conway area.

The cabins were very clean- yet still have that rustic camp ambiance.

The beach area had a great supply of kayaks, floats, etc, and the game/pool room provided yet another outlet for relaxing entertainment.

We greatly enjoyed our stay- the weather was great which is always a gamble. We certainly intend to vacation here again
