The Camden area offers an experience for everyone, all year round. Our coastal Maine town and surrounding communities will warm your heart — it truly is the Maine coast as it was meant to be, but with added bonus of those Camden Hills, we are “where the mountains meet the sea”Because there are so many things to do and see, we have created this Camden Maine travel guide to help travelers get access to the kind of quality information they need in order to make the right decisions when planning a trip or vacation to the Midcoast Maine region. Camden sits on Penobscot Bay, considered by many as one of the top cruising bays in the world. This region of Maine is comprised of hundreds of peninsulas with an array of coves, nooks, harbors, islands and many miles of rugged coastline that became both beautiful and dangerous for navigation. Mostly built in the 1800s to support the maritime industry, Camden and the surrounding Midcoast Maine region are home to more than a dozen lighthouses, each with its own unique design and history to tell.Located right on Penobscot Bay, Camden is a sailor’s dream. Camden Harbor is home to numerous schooners and tall ships that offer daily sailing tours and excursions. Visitors may choose to charter their own ships, or sail for several days on a majestic ocean vessel, learning to hoist the sails or relaxing on deck in the cool ocean breezes. Penobscot Bay itself has been said to be one of the best and most scenic sailing areas in the state of Maine. Camden remains a working harbor, with lobstering and fishing boats travelling in and out of the Bay each day to catch fresh seafood and lobster. A ride around the harbor will pass island ferries, mega-yachts, powerboats, fishing boats, Maine windjammers and more!
