Camden Maine, located in the heart of Mid-Coast Maine
Our storybook village has much to offer residents and visitors alike. Downtown is a charming blend of commercial, historic and green spaces. The harbor is the heart of the community. Standing on the Public Landing, you can see out into the bay, the coming and goings of 100-year-old vessels and watch the Megunticook River cascade from beneath the stores into the harbor.
Its historic landscapes, Harbor Park and the Ampitheater, offer visitors scerene surroundings to picnic or just lay on the grass and watch the fishing boats, windjammers, small craft and large yachts going in and out of the harbor. Designed Fletcher Steele and the Olmstead Brothers, they were designated National Historic Landmark status in 2013.
Drive or walk less than a mile to Camden Hills State Park with over 5,000 acres of hiking trails and a road to the summit of Mt. Battie, where you can have a panoramic view of Penobscot Bay with its many evergreen islands. Or go down by the rocky seashore and soak in the sunshine and smell of the fresh salt-water ocean air.
Our charming downtown offers many unique and locally owned establishments. With its many shops, fine restaurants and charming accommodations there is sure to be something for everyones tastes.
Sailing from this magical home port is an important part of what we have to offer. We hope you spend some extra time before or after your cruise to enjoy the area.
