Midcoast Maine

A popular tourist destination for families and summertime adventure seekers, the Camden, Rockport area of Midcoast Maine is an under appreciated fishery. The area offers a variety of fish species to pursue throughout the seasons. Large and smallmouth bass, wild brook trout, brown trout, landlocked salmon, pike, perch, striped bass and mackerel can all be caught within a few miles of one another.

Midcoast Maine also offers some excellent hiking, dining, and entertainment opportunities for the whole family.

Below are some of my favorite attractions and activities:

Hikes: 

Bald Rock — Lincolnville

This is one of my favorite hikes in the area. The entire loop is about 3 miles. The peak looks east over Penobscot Bay at roughly 1,000 feet. The view is incredible. This is a relatively easy hike.

Maiden’s Cliff — Camden

This is a very popular 800 foot climb. The climb is an easy 2 miles out and back. The view of Megunticook Lake and the surrounding area is impressive.
