Things to do in Camden

Camden is a perfectly charming town about 90 minutes down the coast on Route 1.  Homeport to many of the windjammers that ply the Maine coast, there are lovely shops and great restaurants where you can indulge in some really fine seafood.  Since it is such a popular destination, just be prepared for summer crowds.

Camden Harbor where the windjammers that ply the Maine coast are moored.

Main Street, Camden – home to lovely shops and restaurants – with the harbor in the distance.

Shepherd’s Pie:  18 Central Street, Rockport, Maine 04856, 207-236-8500,,   5PM ’til close everyday

The Shepherd’s Pie opened on Memorial Weekend only a couple of days after the construction was finished. We had no outside sign, no outside lights, no listed phone number and no advertising.

Less than a year later we were nominated for a James Beard Award for Best New Restaurant.

We overlook beautiful Rockport Harbor, but we are more than just a pretty face.
