Among the popular tourist destinations is the noteworthy town of Camden. Camden is a small community located in Knox County, though the population almost triples during the pleasant summer months. It is a very popular summer hot spot, as it offers a variety of recreational activities, and comforting, picturesque countryside. Named one of the best places to retire, it is no wonder people flock here from places all over the world.
Among tourist favorites is the lively seaport of Camden, which offers many opportunities to explore and enjoy the scenery. Start with one of their famous schooner cruises that will take you along the shoreline and through the sparkling waters of the Atlantic.
World-class yachting is also a popular activity here, as anyone who can look upon the town from the ocean will see a magnificent spectacle: quaint, well maintained houses sprinkled through the hills, with a towering mountain backdrop. The mountain backdrop comes from Mount Battie, which watches over Camden.
A popular destination spot at all times of the year is the Camden Snow Bowl, with the motto “Where the mountains meet the sea.” There are so many recreational activities offered here that it feels silly to list them all, but to name a few; mountain biking, hiking, tennis, boating, and swimming in the summer, with skiing, snowboarding, tubing, snow hiking, and tobogganing available in the winter. Talk about a sporting paradise!
Also a spectacular paradise is the Camden Hills State Park. Among this park’s main attractions are the harbor cruises, which feature whale watching and puffin watching. Activities offered include camping, bird watching, hiking and cross country skiing, horseback riding, hunting, off-roading, biking, snowshoeing, and snowmobiling. There is also a campground, which offers overnight guests a magnificent view of the glittering night skies. Camden has no limit of adventure opportunities to enjoy while on vacation.
