Camden is a town in Knox County, Maine, United States. Do some cultural sightseeing at High Street Historic District and Owls Head Transportation Museum. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Maine Lighthouse Museum and Belfast Harborwalk. There's still lots to do: stroll through Camden Harbor Park and Amphitheatre, pause for some photo ops at Andre the Seal Statue, do a tasting at Cellardoor Winery, and explore the activities along Megunticook Lake.

Plan a trip to Camden easily and quickly by telling Inspirock to suggest an itinerary.

Newark to Camden is an approximately 5-hour flight. You can also drive. Plan for slightly colder temperatures traveling from Newark in June, with highs in Camden at 68°F and lows at 51°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 13th (Thu) to allow time to travel to Southwest Harbor.
