Welcome to Camden
Camden, with its picture-perfect harbor, framed against the mountains of Camden Hills State Park, is one of the prettiest sites in Maine. Home to the state's large and justly famed fleet of windjammers, Camden continues its historic intimacy with the sea. Most vacationers come to sail, but Camden also has galleries, fine restaurants and backstreets ideal for exploring. Pick up a walking-tour guide to the town's historic buildings at the chamber of commerce. The adjoining state park offers hiking, picnicking and camping.
Like many communities along the Maine coast, Camden has a long history of shipbuilding. The mammoth six-masted schooner George W Wells was built here in 1900, setting the world record for the most masts on a sailing ship.
