Camden Maine's longtime slogan is "where mountains meet the sea," and it is an apt description for this lovely coastal town. The town is also famous for its large fleet of windjammers - relics and replicas from the age of sailing. Visitors to Camden can take an excursion on one of the windjammers around Deer Isle and Penobscot Bay during the months of June-September. Camden is home to Camden Hills State Park, which is 5,500 acres of rolling hills and 30 miles of beautiful hiking trails. You can drive or hike to the summit of Mt. Battie for a breathtaking view of Camden Harbor, Penobscot Bay and all the inland lakes and rivers. There is also a 112-site campground within the park, and both fresh and saltwater beaches are nearby. You can rent your own powerboat or sailboat for a harbor cruise to the nearby islands, or try your hand at canoeing, kayaking or rowing. The activities in Camden are endless including horseback riding, swimming, fishing, biking, parasailing, sightseeing, and golf, exploring lighthouses or relaxing on the beach. Fun day trips will take you antiquing through the small coastal towns of Boothbay, Searsport, Castine or Blue Hill. Downtown Camden has some of the best shopping in the district, and its size makes it fun to explore its shops, restaurants, and art galleries on Main Street, in alleys and side streets around the harbor. Summer and fall finds the Camden Hills alive with festivals and arts and crafts fairs - something is always abuzz in this picturesque harbor town.

Camden Weather & Climate

The southern coast of Maine near the Penobscot Bay has very comfortable summers and falls, cold winters with frequent thaws and late, changeable springs. Summers are mild to cool by most people's standards, with very few summer nights too warm and humid for sleeping. Autumn has the greatest number of sunny days along the coast and is perfect for fall sightseeing. Winters are cold, but not as severe as the northeastern part of the state along the Canadian border. The White Mountains, to the northwest, keep considerable snow from reaching the Portland area and also help moderate the temperature. Normal precipitation is remarkably uniform throughout the year. Winds are generally light with the strongest being in the months of March and November. Temperatures well below freezing are reported each year, and cold waves sometimes come along with strong winds. Blizzards are possible but infrequent in Maine.
