There's a large parking lot, waiting for boondockers to make themselves at home. Large grass lawn for pets to roam off leash, at your own risk as long as you clean up after them. Across the street is a softball field, as well as the largest park in town - Rotary Park. Rotary Park includes bathrooms, dog park, skateboard park, beach on the river, boat ramp, and sand volleyball.
Place trash in the dumpster to the right of the building. No smoking on property. Pick up after your pets and yourself. Have fun!!
Large parking lot available off main road. Recommend entering on South Street, not Main Street. Main Street will necessitate a hard left hand turn.
It's a large parking lot with separate entrances and exits
We won't always be able to meet you in person, but we're thrilled to bless travelers going through, or vacationers looking to spend some time in southern Maine. It's a beautiful spot!

My dog loved the field, and for a location in a city I’m surprised how quiet it was! A great stop.
Thanks very much for the access to this parking lot. Camping locations in Maine are VERY expensive and must be planned for way in advance. This space allowed my spouse and I to do a quick few days in Maine which was wonderful!
Quiet, plenty of room, and about 20 minute walk to downtown Saco.
Host was quick to respond, very easy to communicate! Super convenient- thanks so much!!!
Thank you so much for giving us a stopover and hope to cross paths with you in the future

Great location from which to explore Portland and all the surrounding areas. Thank you so much!
The perfect safe haven for a exhausted traveler!
After a day enjoying Portland, Old Orchard Beach and Kennebunkport, this was a wonderful spot to take a rest before traveling to New Hampshire. Never did get to meet Pastor but appreciated good communication, nice accommodations and positive, welcoming vibe. I’d recommend it. Nice stay!
Worked out perfectly. Quiet neighborhood and large, level parking area to safely and comfortably stop ove to break up a long drive. Thank you for opening up your place for road warriors like ourselves. Bless you!
Perfect spot after a long day of traveling. Parking lot is paved and large. Located close to downtown. Great lawn for our 2 pups as well. Good communication with Award795 too. We appreciated being able to stay here and it gave us an opportunity to check out the area as well.
*It is along a somewhat busy road, we parked back from road and found after dark it was quiet and we had a wonderful night’s sleep.
Also, we put name of business in our maps and it took us to some dead end road about 1 mile away. Make sure you type in actual address of location to help guide you.
The church parking lot was quiet and convenient. We appreciated being able to stay in a safe spot while we checked out Portland and the surrounding area.
Slipped parking lot but was good for a nights stay. Thanks you grace point church.
Stayed for one night and unfortunately we wanted to stay longer and explore the area, but we ran into a family emergency! Will definitely be back!
I was somewhat hesitant to stay overnight in a parking lot in a large city. Grace Point Church was truly a Safe Haven. Perfect location near coastal Maine activities and located in a quiet residential area. I would highly recommend Grace Point Church and appreciate their hospitality to travellers.
We really appreciate Award795's responsiveness and we recommend theIr spot to all. There is a little market across the quiet street. If you're up for it, you can walk to town on the sidewalk.
Nearby is the Eastern Point bike path, which is flat and surrounded by beautiful trees.
This was our first stay and it was a great experience! Close to Portland. Would definitely stay here again. There was also a giant field that we parked next to where our dogs were able to play.
I had a great visit in Biddeford at GracePoint Church. I tucked my RV in the back, by the grass, and felt safe. I explored Portland, Old Orchard Beach, and Biddeford while in the area.
We were able to get some much needed rest here for a few days. It’s a perfect spot, close to a super market and a few places to eat. Pulling in was easy based on directions given and it was a huge parking lot. Only regret we weren’t in town long enough to attend a service and thank Award795 in person. Communication was easy quick and he seems like a very nice host.
Wonderful spot to spend the night. Large well lit parking area set back from the road. Park across the street and plenty of area to walk the dogs. Not far from restaurants and stores.
As a bonus we enjoyed an outdoor church service from our RV and were warmly welcomed by the pastor and some church members.
Big Lot to park on, centrally located. There is tall trees on one side, so we had shade in the afternoon. Thank you.
Quiet & peaceful area. Thank you, I greatly appreciate the last minute approval to spend the night.
This spot was easy to find and park the RV. The host responded quickly to our request and I'm glad it worked out as this was our first time boondocking.
Wonderful location close to the beach and Portland. We got to attend church on Sunday in the parking lot we stayed. It was quite and relaxing.
Shaded area to park rig. Area was clean and safe. Got to enjoy their outdoor church service
This spot was easily accessible and quiet. The host was very responsive and great to work with. Definitely recommend this location.
What a great location. The best chicken sandwich ever!!! Thank you Pastor For suggesting. Went for a 3 mile run and enjoyed the river view.
Thank you again!
Perfect midway pt between home and acadia. Large safe lot. Quiet. Didn’t get to meet host but through emails was extremely pleasant and welcoming. Thanks for opening your lot to us!
Spent some time at the Rotary Park near by and then had a safe quiet night here :)
This was our second stop here as we travel through Maine. Great place to stay, plenty to do in the area, day trip to Portland, good restaurants and shopping to stock up.
Just what we were looking for. A quiet place near the interstate to tuck in for the night. Large parking lot of this church - no one else parked. It was quiet and safe.
Thank you Award795!!
Great parking lot with lots of room for six year old to eork off much energy!
Fully paved parking lot. Lots of room. Would stay here again if we were in the area
The parking lot was perfect for parking for the night. Perfect spot to run our dog on the side.
A awesome location to visit Maine coast. Great local sites to see. Host was great help with some local ideas and stopped by to see if we had any questions. Host was very friendly. Good spot for stocking up on supplies too.
A nice spot just a short drive for shopping. Met Pastor Andrew in the morning had a short chat. What a good use for a parking lot this empty most of the week.
Thank you Pastor Andrew for having us. We are sorry we didn’t get to attend services. Would have loved to have heard you teach. Location was close to interstate but not right beside it. Directions were easy to follow with no problems. We felt safe in the large parking area and neighborhood. Glad we were able to meet Andrew and be the first Boondockers. Highly recommended!
