Definitely visit the Rockland Breakwater Light if you are in the Camden to Rockland area or even driving through. Although check the hours as it is all volunteer staffed and isn't always open. The walk along the breakwater is beautiful-- especially in the early morning-- gorgeous light on the harbor. You can sit at the end of the breakwater and watch the schooners, lobster tours, yachts and other ocean vessels pass by as you listen to the fog horn and water on the rocks.
You are welcome to climb up the ladder to the light tower and wander through the (now unfurnished) home where the keepers lived. There are historical photos and information posted on the walls. We were there on a very busy weekend in July yet, we were the only ones at the top of the light when we went. No lines to wait in, no fee to pay AND great views! A MUST see.
