About Camden

Camden is the quintessential coastal community, ideally designed for visitors, residents, and businesses alike. Located along Maine’s midcoast, Penobscot Bay, and the Atlantic seaboard, Camden is a year round community catering to all interests but specializing in arts, culture, outdoor and waterside recreation, shopping, and fine dining. Camden’s tagline "where the mountains meet the sea” is exemplified by Mt. Battie, Camden Hills State Park, the Ragged Mountain Recreation Area, Camden Snow Bowl, and the notable Camden Harbor.
