Camden, Maine
Population: 5254
Knox County, ME
Trip: 5 miles
The town of Camden is best known to tourists as an idyllic example of a scenic coastal Maine town, full of bed & breakfasts, fine restaurants, and visiting sailboats in the harbor. (In 1957, 20th Century Fox chose Camden as the location for the filming of Peyton Place, the movie version of the controversial novel by Grace Metalious that portrayed life in a small New England town.) Camden offers a wonderful Main Street and waterfront park to stroll. There are dozens of fine shops, boutiques, galleries and restaurants to browse all just steps away from the harbor.

Located on the southwest edge of Penobscot Bay, Rockland has always benefited from a unique combination of geography and economics that has made it one of the most beautiful and practical destinations on the coast of Maine. Its nearly 8,000 residents live at the heart of Midcoast Maine, an area world famous for its mountainous and rocky shore with hundreds of harbors and inlets, and for some of the best cruising waters anywhere for sailing and boating for pleasure or sport. A nearly mile-long granite breakwater protects Rockland Harbor and lighthouse making it one of the finest shipping and recreational boating harbors on the East Coast of the United States. One of the most dramatic changes of the past 20 years has been the city's transformation from a fish-processing center to a vibrant arts-and-crafts center. Rockland has recently been colonized by creative restaurateurs and innkeepers and other small entrpeneurs who are remaking the city into one of Midcoast Maine's most popular tourist destinations.

The waterfront is booming in enterprise including restaurants, pubs, and sightseeing tours by water or railway. The waterfront area has been renovated and improved with parks, picnic areas, and boat launch. Belfast has become a popular vacation stopover and attracts yachts from local and distant ports. Visitors to the harbor will enjoy the serenity of sitting and watching an array of beautiful boats coming and going.

Population: 75
Knox County, ME
Trip: 32 miles
(12 miles by Boat)
Monhegan Island is situated out in the open sea, about 10 miles from the mainland, and is generally believed to be the first settled place in Maine. The island got its start as a British fishing camp prior to the settlement of the Plymouth Colony. The British would harvest cod from the rich fishing grounds of the Gulf of Maine then dry the fish on the island before shipping them to Europe. A plaque adjacent to the island's one room schoolhouse commemorates a visit in 1614, by John Smith, who was an English Naval Captain and Governor of Virginia. Today fishing still dominates Monhegan’s economy. From December through May the fisherman harvest lobsters from the only lobster conservation area in the state of Maine. The summer months bring artists and tourists to view the amazing ocean views and to those who are attracted to its scenery, flora and fauna, and its history. Traveling to the island brings you back to what coastal Maine was like 100 years ago. Monhegan can be reached by boat from three ports in Maine: Port Clyde, New Harbor, and Boothbay Harbor. Parking for all cars is available at each port.

Trip: 8 miles
Camden Hills State Park is located in the Megunticook Mountain Range on the shore of Penobscot Bay. Recognizing the special features of this area, the National Park Service acquired nearly 5,000 acres of this range in the 1930's. In cooperation with the Civilian Conservation Corps, the Park Service built the "Camden Hills Recreation Development Area" during the late 1930's and early 1940's. Since 1947, the Maine Bureau of Parks and Lands has administered the area now known as Camden Hills State Park, one of Maine's most popular parks.

The 5,500 acre park provides 30 miles of hiking trails along the shore and in the Megunticook Mountain range, whose peaks rise from near sea level to a height of 1,380 feet. One outstanding feature of this range is Maiden Cliff, a rock outcropping that rises 800 feet from the shore of Megunticook Lake and offers hikers beautiful views from the top. Paths by the shore invite visitors to enjoy less strenuous hikes along the 1,700 feet of rocky coastline on Penobscot Bay.

One of the most popular scenic attractions in the park is the 1.4 mile road to the top of Mount Battie. On the summit of the Mount sits a W.W.I stone tower which has a circular set of stairs on the interior. Climbing approximately 20 steps rewards you with an impressive 360 degree view of mountains and ocean.

Owls Head Light
Owls Head Light State Park
Owls Head, ME
Trip: 7 miles
At Owl's Head, Maine, this little 30 foot stub of a light tower sits high on a cliff guarding the entrance to Rockland Harbor. The name Owl's Head comes from the two large indentations in the headlands that suggest an owl's eyes. A light was first built here in 1826 to service the increased shipping generated by Rockland's lime industry. The present brick tower was constructed in 1852 and fitted with a fourth-order fresnel lens. The tower remains essentially the same as when it was built. The lighthouse is located in Owls Head Light State Park in Owls Head. For more information call 207-941-4014
Marshall Point Lighthouse Museum
Marshall Point Road
Port Clyde, ME

The brick and granite lighthouse was originally equipped with a fifth order Fresnel lens and emitted a fixed white light that could be seen for about 10 miles and remained in the lighthouse up to 1935 when the light was electrified. This lighthouse replaced the original lighthouse that was built in 1832 and consisted of a 20-foot rubblestone tower. A bell tower was built in 1898 and contained a 1,000 pound bronze bell. This was replaced by a fog horn in 1969. The bell is on display at the keeper's house.
Pemaquid Point Lighthouse
Pemaquid Point
Bristol. ME
207-677-2494
Trip: 34 miles
The light at Pemaquid was originally built during the presidency of John Quicy Adams, in 1827, at a cost of $2,800. Faulty construction was blamed for the quick deterioration of the tower, which was rebuilt with double walls in 1835. The tower is only 38 ft tall, but it's placement on a rock ledge gives the light a 79 ft. focal plane. Flashing a white light every 6 seconds, Pemaquid's fourth-order fresnel is visible for 14 miles. The lightkeeper's house is now a museum, and there is an art gallery at the park, but the best part of this trip is climbing around on the point itself, enjoying the spectacular scenery and taking the inevitable photo of the light reflected in a tidal pool.
