Picturesq Lighthouse!. An easy walk from "downtown" Camden (approximately a mile) to this lovely setting. Bring your camera!

We located the small sign for the overlook and parked on the side of the road. A short walk down a path leads to a fantastic view of both the lighthouse and bay. We must have spent 20-30 minutes at the overlook sharing both a...More

You will have to polish up your scavenger hunt skills to find this one but when you do, it will take your breath away! Hint: You need to arrive before sunset. Unfortunately after driving 4 hours I missed it by 10 minutes thanks to road...More

Kayaked to Curtis Island on rented kayaks, and this small island and town park was terrific. There is a beautiful lighthouse and views, and even a rope swing to try! Great place to stop or tour

We kayaked around this little island and heard the story of the lighthouse keeper. Such a great story and a beautiful view from the water. No running water or electricity out there apparently.

We kayaked from Camden harbor to the island, then hiked across the island to the lighthouse. The keeper was so nice and let us climb the lighthouse and even showed us inside the keeper house, sharing in the history of the lighthouse. Great visit.

this lighthouse is on a small island right at the mouth of Camden harbor. You can get to the island only by a small boat (a kayak or slightly bigger). The island itself is a great mix - going from a small beach to dense...More

The lighthouse is on an island accessible only by boat. However, you can get a great view from just across the bay by stopping at this off-the-beaten-path overlook. It is hard to find, with just a very small sign and a spot for two cars...More

The only way to actually get to Curtis Island Lighthouse is to take a small rowboat or canoe from the town to the rocky beach at the north end of the island, But the viewing spot proposed by "rex e" is a good one for someone... More
