Mount Battie

A one-hour-up/one-hour-back hiking trip is the best way to see this mountain.

Reviewed By karen b

we drove up on the Auto Road, but there are many trails and opportunities for walking cycling etc. it is unusual to have a mountain right next to the harbor, and the view is spectacular

This is our second visit to the winery. The people were so friendly and welcoming! The wine was great, reasonable priced and the lunch we had was just perfect to sit on the deck and enjoy a nice glass of wine overlooking the lush green vineyard!

Andre the Seal Statue

Reviewed By CtYankee51 - Dallas, Texas

Rockport is the prettiest Harbor in Maine! It is tucked away from the "touristy" areas and a nice place to just sit and enjoy the view.

"Andre" is a beautiful sculpture with a heart-warming true story.

The area has benches placed around the waterfront and a couple of picnic tables. We stopped by Rockport Harbor 3 times in a week!

Ducktrap Kayaking

Reviewed By ptrjmaltd - Vienna, Virginia

I've rented kayaks from Dan over the past two years. He's great--I'll be back. As others have observed, the website doesn't provide much info, but returned my calls quite promptly and helped me pick out the appropriate kayak for my needs.

We had no problem getting the double kayak on and off my rental car. (It is heavy, though.) The one thing that I would suggest is to make sure that you have a 3rd strap that attaches the front of the kayak to the car hood. Even if you are not taking the kayak very far. I didn't do that and the kayak almost slipped off the car. A disaster was averted, as another driver noticed and helped me put that 3rd strap to good use.

Camden Harbor Park and Amphitheatre

Reviewed By journeyon40 - Ames, Iowa

Capt. Matt was very personable and knowledgeable about the boat and the sea. He was very solicitous of an elderly woman on the voyage and attended to her without causing her to feel uncomfortable. He has a great sense of humor, and was able to answer any question asked. He offered on-going commentary about the boat and the area. For the next several months he will be varnishing the boat and getting it ready for your trip next year. A wonderful experience for this flat-lander from Iowa.

Fernald's Neck Preserve

Reviewed By Jazz_and_cocktails - Purchase, New York

This is not to be missed. Walk the Blue Loop and take in the views of Lake Megunticock. Detour to the Balance Rock and swim off the rock beach if you'd like. I will note that our Fitbit said the Loop and Rock detour took about 3 miles of walking and not the 1.5 miles noted in our guide book. Signage could be better, I think the fallen trees may have taken some blue marks with them.

if in Camden and wanting to get away from the ocean (and the lobsters), take a hike in beautiful Camden Hills State Park (don't just drive up to the lookout in your car, but walk or hike one of the many trails)

Ducktrap River Park

Reviewed By TheMeadowsTravel - Washington, D.C.

Great place for families to make a quick beach stop. It's a very quaint little beach (rolling rocks, not sand) with just enough going on around the margins to keep folks interested. There are a few casual restaurants nearby and plenty of parking. You'll be tempted to blow by on the highway up to Bar Harbor or down to Camden, but Lincolnville Beach is a worthwhile stop.

It was so much fun for my wife and me to watch yachts, schooners and other ships coming and leaving the harbor. The flowers and park setting are so peaceful and relaxing that everyone should include this stop as part of their itinerary.
