Maine Oh Maine
Our 5,000 miles of coastline offer one beautiful harbor after another with countless breathtaking views of Maine’s many islands and of the open ocean beyond. Inland, the natural beauty continues with pine and birch forests, rivers and lakes, winding country roads and numerous state parks.
Camden, located right on Maine’s gorgeous coast, is halfway between Portland and Bar Harbor/Acadia National Park. It is an ideal location from which to plan a trip that includes time to explore the local attractions and to also take some wonderful day trips. Stay for a few days, unpack your bags once, and experience much that Maine has to offer.
