Great little town to wander, shop & browse, plus plenty of food options as well, drive up the mountain for a view of it all

I am so in love with Camden! It's such a nice "village" without being too "touristy"! It has it all--history, shopping, the harbor, and great food! Who could ask for more? We were there for the "Art in the Park" event in July, and it was a really fun day. It was a juried art show, so the works were... More

Camden is a beautiful little Maine town. The shops are quaint and eclectic, not so touristy like Bar harbor. (Don't get me wrong, I like Bar Harbor, they have too many touristy t-shirt shops). You can enjoy a small park on top of the shopping district and the marina less than one block east of the shops. They have boat... More

The time we had in Camden was way too short. The main historic district was too short. I could have wandered for blocks but just not enough area dedicated to such a quaint place The food was so good on the warf. The people really are some of the nicest I have encountered

We chose to stay near Camden because we read it was "the" typical New England village, and it did not disappoint. The town is filled with beautiful homes - some of them dating to the 1600's. Downtown Camden has nice shops, good restaurants, a beautiful harbor, and ample parking (depending on the time of the year, I am sure). Be... More

Wonderful shop, restaurants, even an art gallery or 2! Unfortunately it rained the 2 days we were in Camden but we still enjoyed walking around the harbor side downtown.

Enjoyed our drive thru here. Lot of nice old homes and other structures. We combined with a hunt for some of the places that in the 1950's Peyton Place movie. That was fun. Not sure how many we really found but fun anyway. You can get a map from the library.

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.
