Camden Hills State Park
The trails of Camden Hills are open year-round. The auto road is closed when there is substantial snow. Many locals walk up the auto road in the winter. During the end of November and the whole month of December, in addition to the beautiful ocean views, hikers are rewarded with seeing the Mt. Battie Star. On the evening of Thanksgiving, the Town of Camden lights the traditional Mt. Battie Star. This star is lit each night until New Years Day. Experienced hikers know that winter hiking is enjoyed most when you are prepared. Be sure to bring, a heavy coat, ice trackers for your shoes and some hand warmers to keep in your pockets. The Inn is not far from the trails of Camden Hills which makes it an ideal spot to come back to and warm up.

There are many options to dine in the downtown this winter. Whether you prefer to eat at a restaurant or take out and enjoy back at the inn, you have many selections. Long Grain, Tomi Sushi and Noodle Bar, Fresh and Camden Deli have been consistently good for take-out. Add a drink or a bottle of wine from the Captain Swift Inn drink list to complete your take out experience If you prefer dining at a restaurant, Blaze, Camden Waterfront, Camden Sea Dogs and the new Ports of Italy are larger restaurants with spaced out tables and in door dining.
