Camden & Lincolnville
While many writers, artists and crafters have been drawn to Camden’s tree shaded streets, elegant homes, white painted churches and colorful flower gardens, don’t be misled by its genteel appearance. You’ll find a lively selection of first-rate accommodations, restaurants and shops.
In summer Camden is a hiker’s and camper’s paradise. Camden Hills State Park is this region’s 6,500 acre playground. Trails take you to the top of Mount Battie and Mt. Megunticook.
Summer also brings out one of Camden’s most famous attractions – Windjammers.
Each year the romance and popularity of these sleek vessels has grown. Along with schooner races you can enjoy art shows, lobster festivals and musical and theatrical productions. The Summer Harp Colony of America brings world famous musicians to perform.
Lincolnville spans two settlements, each with its own personality and attractions. At broad Lincolnville Beach, sections of sand and pebbles (depending on the tide) draw visitors for play and relaxation. The shallow water is ideal for wading on a warm day. Also here, you can visit a cluster of shops and restaurants or hop the ferry to quiet Islesboro. Look for two cannons placed (but never used) to repel the British in the War of 1812. Drive inland to Lincolnville Center’s rolling farmland, scenic ponds, and one of the area’s three wineries.
Whatever your idea of the perfect escape is, you can find it in Lincolnville.
From the drama of the rocky Maine coast to the tranquility of lush green mountains, Lincolnville’s natural beauty offers something for everyone in every season. Explore our beach and watch the ferry make its way to the island of Islesboro. Kayak in a freshwater lake or cross-country ski through wooded trails. Stay at one of our area’s fine lodging establishments. Browse our craft shops and fine art galleries. Enjoy fresh lobster and fine cuisine at Lincolnville’s renowned restaurants. Watch lobster boats haul in the catch of the day, or hike up a mountain for the breathtaking sight of a Penobscot Bay sunset.
