Lincolnville welcomes you
Whatever your idea of the perfect escape, you just may find it in the Lincolnville, Camden Maine area.
From the drama of the rocky Maine coast to the tranquility of lush green mountains, Lincolnville’s natural beauty offers something for everyone in every season. Explore our beach and watch the ferry make its way to the island of Islesboro. Kayak in a freshwater lake or cross-country ski through wooded trails.
Browse our craft shops and fine art galleries. Watch lobster boats haul in the catch of the day, or hike up a mountain for the breathtaking sight of a Penobscot Bay sunset. The warmth of spring and summer brings almost endless activities in our area. Spectacular, expansive, and right outside the door. Camden Hills State Park, most of it within Lincolnville town limits, offers more than 30 miles of hiking and cross-country-skiing trails, some with Camden harbor views from atop 780-foot Mount Battie. The massive “ponds” (Norton, Coleman, Pitcher) are peaceful redoubts for swimming and canoeing.
Activities such as biking the miles of country roads, fishing, swimming at Lincolnville Beach, and canoeing on Lake Megunticook, or a relaxing walk in Fernalds Neck Nature Conservancy are among just some of the many things to do locally.Autumn is perhaps the most perfect time of year to visit Lincolnville. Embrace the crisp fall air and breathtaking foliage as you drive through miles of tree lined roads which give way to brilliant mountain and coastal scenery. Stop by one of our local farm stands and pick up freshly pressed apple cider and organic produce.
Experiencing winter in Lincolnville is a delight you may not expect.. The scenery is stunning with blankets of snow which seem to twinkle in the sunlight. There is an abundance of winter sports from miles of trails for cross country skiing, to peaceful ice skating on the lakes and ponds. Back at the Youngtown Inn, wrap up the day by warming your toes by a cozy fireplace while sipping hot cocoa. Nothing beats a Maine winter………..
The Quiet, Quaint, Coastal Village of Lincolnville Maine
Located just north of the Camden area is the quiet, quaint, coastal village of Lincolnville. The town is home to the mainland terminal for the state ferry to Islesboro, but Lincolnville is more than just a waypoint. This port is a fascinating little town with its sand beach and art galleries and many things to do: sailing, kayaking, hiking, swimming, shopping, cross-country skiing, apple-picking … the options are endless. Lincolnville attracts people from all walks: artists, writers, boatbuilders. Most of Camden Hills State Park is located in Lincolnville. The State park offers more than 30 miles of trails, many with harbor views. The Park is well-known, in part, for its Mt. Battie, atop of which, one of America’s greatest poets, Edna St. Vincent Millay, wrote her famous poem, Renascence. From the top of Mt. Battie, visitors can see Cadillac Mountain in Acadia National Park. The Park features a campground with many sites, some available by reservation through the Maine State Parks System, others available on a first-come, first-served basis. The Park has hot showers and restroom facilities.
