Here, we go over the three best things to do in Camden, according to the pros at Maine Carpet Cleaning, an honest and reliable, family operated and owned company who has been serving the residents of Camden, Maine for over 10 years.
High above the harbor on Mount Battie is the ideal place to view just how gorgeous Camden is. This breathtaking lookout at the rocky tip of Mount Battie appears as if it’s guarding the cute little seaport and its cozy harbor inside Penobscot Bay, is dotted by sailboats of every size and color. Camden is even more gorgeous in autumn as the trees that surround the city perform their complete colorful show.
Mount Battie and Camden Hills St. Park
An easy and pleasant 2-hour trip up the Camden Hills which loom above the quaint harbor village of Camden is going to take you to the lush 5,700-acre Camden Hills State Park. Providing thirty miles of hiking trails through forests and amazing views of surrounding hills and lakes on every corner, the park is the ideal area for a day of adventure outdoors.
Visitors even can bring a packed lunch to appreciate at the well-manicured campground featuring a huge picnic space for families. Maiden's Cliff Trail offer incredible views of beautiful Megunticook Lake, and the park's 800’ summit Mount Battie provides wonderful views of Penobscot Bay, as well as the nearby islands.
Camden Harbor Park & Amphitheatre
The park and amphitheater are gorgeous parks in Camden, situated on the grounds of Camden’s stately Public Library, right off Main St. Camden Harbor Park and Amphitheater is the heart of the library's grounds and was made by Fletcher Steele, a well-known landscape architect. Harbor Park is a two -acre naturalistic park situated right across Atlantic Avenue constructed by the Olmsted Brothers from 1928 to 1935.
Camden Harbor Park and Amphitheater continues the exceptional harbor and bay views. In 1931, the parks were offered as a gift to Camden by Mary Louise Curtis Bok Zimbalist, a philanthropist, to add to the renovated Library of Camden. Beautifully tended, serene gardens are highly sought-after for pretty much any social event in the town of Camden, from weddings, picnics, craft fairs, and graduations to theater productions, festivals, and concerts. Both of the parks are on National Register of Historic Places.
Camden, Maine Megunticook Lake
Just a brief drive from the tourist-friendly and charming Camden village, calm Megunticook Lake is nestled at the foot of the Camden Hills. Just 3 miles from the harbor of Camden, at the east part of the lake is Barrett's Cove Beach, a wonderful area for swimming and picnicking that’s rarely crowded. The beach offers a shallow space for children and diving platform that floats inside the lake. Remember that there aren’t any lifeguards.
