Know Before You Go

Consult this website before you travel to Maine. Maine Government. The guidelines are changing everyday. Everyday more and more places open and testing requirements change. If, for some reason guidelines turn the other way, we will call all guests to modify or change reservations.

Day-trips & Sightseeing Guidance

The Camden Riverhouse Hotel is a great central location to all of MidCoast Maine. There are so many different places you can visit and return to Camden Maine in the evening.  If you choose to do a daytrip or sightseeing, here are some details, you should know.


Many beaches, parks, gardens, museums (ex. the Farnsworth) and historic sites are open, but you must get a timed reservation to enter. Plan ahead and get reservations. If you are going to Acadia, they are asking you to print out your ticket before you get there and put in windshield. YOU ALSO NEED TO MAKE A RESERVATION TO DRIVE UP CADILLAC MOUNTAIN IN ACADIA NATIONAL PARK.

***Camden Hills State Park is open.

*Backup Plans

Because of social distancing, places like beaches and parks will close parking lots when officials believe crowding is happening. Always have a second and third idea for a destination for the day.


Public places with outdoor properties to enjoy generally are keeping indoor spaces, like visitor centers, closed. You may not be able to find a rest room when you need it. Be prepared – Google Portable Camp Toilets. The Camden Downtown Public Bathrooms ARE OPEN. 


Many restaurants are serving take-out and some are serving on their outdoor decks. It is best to call ahead. Please call, text or stop in to the restaurant directly.
