Picturesque, but not quite the charming harbor town I'd imagined. We did enjoy walking around the harbor and downtown, a brief drive out High Street to Norumbega on a nice day with good fall color. More to see on our next visit.

The taste of old N England seacoast and harbor living that U imagined. Take a casual drive and enjoy-these homes r 115 yrs old but will cost several million to buy if on the market. Assuming U want to drop your million $$$ that way.

Really fun shops..much more than just souvenir shopping. Water and water features make this town a must see. Crowded and tough to park but go see it...only takes an hour or so.

I am a resident of Maine. Today is 8/20/14 . I was traveling on US Route One through Camden and got stuck in the traffic that occurs every single summer. Now I am a resident, I should know better but to people traveling through Camden the best time is early morning to perhaps mid morning. It took me at least... More

This lovely village has arts and crafts galleries, a few touristy shops, coffee and ice cream cafes, and several fine restaurants. Don't miss the mill river and its quaint bridge. Camden Harbor and its park are perfect places for admiring views of America that seem long-lost.

There are so many beautiful details to see on High Street, be sure that you walk so you can pause to enjoy the gorgeous flower beds, the details of the historic homes, go early to hear the birds!

Lovely shops & great restaurants in a quaint historical town. Easy walking & very interesting. We chose to stay right in town so that we could easily stroll everywhere. Good choice -- we highly recommend it for the scenery & convenience!

This is a really cute little town with an amazing view of the harbor from the park. The park/amphitheater were the highlights for me! The town is definitely worth a walk through. Shops are cute but very pricey - which seems to be the way in these little towns.
