We come to Camden every year and never tire of it. It is beautiful and friendly and lots of things to do right in walking distance. Views are grand and the harbor is amazing.

Eating, shopping, gawking in Camden. Great place to walk about and view the harbor, buildings and of course the waterfall on the edge of town. Well worth the stop while exploring Maine.
