Camden, New England

Camden is a quintessential scenic Maine town and the location for filming of Peyton Place, the adaptation of the controversial novel that portrayed life behind closed doors in rural New England.

It is pleasant just to stroll along the town's main street and waterfront park where you will find dozens of fine shops, boutiques, galleries and restaurants.

For the best views of the town, walk up Mount Battle which overlooks the Camden-Rockport coastal area and surrounding Penobscot Bay.
