Where to Stay in Camden, Maine

July 26, 2022

Pulling into Camden for the first time you will immediately be charmed by this small town. In my opinion it is one the most charming towns on the entire coast of Maine. Quaint downtown shops, lobstermen bringing their daily catches to shore, and a beautiful New England landscape make Camden an excellent place to visit. I’ve already shared some favorite places to eat and drink, now it’s time to know where to stay!
