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
This is such a nice little spot to view Camden Harbor and the Curtis Island Light. There are really only a couple of parking spots on Bayview and a short path to the view and a bench. When we were there two other couples came...More
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.

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 who doesn't want a long hike. To get there, Drive 3/4 of a mile south from the center of town on Bayview St.; park at the the small dirt strip just past its junction with Beacon St.; walk about 50 ft. further along Bayview; and there you will see a dirt path (there may be a sign) on the harbor side of the road. The path is about 70ft. down to the lighthouse look-out where there are some rustic places to sit and enjoy the view..
