Restaurants in Camden, Maine and Nearby

You probably won’t complain about a lack of food options.  A  5 – 10 minute walk will get you to most Camden restaurants; only the restaurants on the other side of the harbor are a bit farther away, about a mile each. Rockport and Rockport Harbor restaurants are just a five minute drive down the road, and Rockland, a real “foodie” town, is only 15 minutes South. You could also take Route 1 North to Lincolnville and Lincolnville Beach, or continue on to Belfast,  for more events, sea views, shops, and restaurants.

“Nice little hotel located within walking distance of shopping, restaurants, and Camden Harbor. Breakfast everyday was very good and the hosts took care of anything we needed. Would definitely stay again. We really liked the location of Camden for exploring the coast.” Nate R Tripadvisor
