Camden, ME – Harbor

Camden is a town in Knox County, Maine, United States. The population was 5,254 at the 2000 census. The population of the town more than triples during the summer months, due to tourists and summer residents. Camden is a famous summer colony in the Mid-Coast region of Maine. Similar to Bar Harbor, Nantucket and North Haven, Camden is well-known for its summer community of wealthy Northeasterners, mostly from Boston, New York, Philadelphia and Washington, D.C.

Additionally, the town is a popular tourist destination with Americans as well as the jet-set from Europe, particularly Germany, the UK, France and Italy. In the early 1980s, Camden was named one of the ten best places to retire, causing many well-heeled professionals to do so: diplomats, corporate executives, investment bankers, doctors, and authors. Camden’s 19th century prosperity endowed it with considerable fine architecture, which combined with its romantic mountain backdrop, world-class yachting and famous schooner cruises, makes the seaport an enduring tourist favorite.
