How to get here

If you drive, take I-95 north from the Boston area to Exit 44-I-295.

Take I-295 to Exit 28–Bath Brunswick, Rte. 1. This coastal route will take you to Camden. Drive time is about 4 hours.

An alternate inland Route avoids heavy seasonal Rte. 1 traffic:

I-295 north to exit 49–Gardiner/Randolph.

Take Rte. 201 to Gardiner; cross Kennebec River bridge to Randolph.

Take Route 226 to Route 17 east to Route 90, West Rockport.

Go east on 90 to US Route 1, Rockport, and take US Route 1 north to Camden.

We provide free parking.
