Why We Call it Vacationland
With more than 6,000 lakes and ponds, 5,000 streams, over 30 state parks and almost 3,500 miles of coastline, it's no wonder Maine is known as "Vacationland" (it's even on our license plates!)
Over 80% of Maine - that's about 17 million acres - remains forested with a beautiful mix of white pine, hemlock, spruce, fir and a variety of hardwoods.
Between the breeze coming off the ocean and the naturally air purifying nature of trees, it not only looks good here, it smells good too!
During the spring we are open from 9:30-5:30 Monday through Saturday and 10-5 on Sundays.
On June 20th we will start our summer schedule and will open at 9AM and close at 9 PM everyday (except for Sundays when we will open at 9:30).
Summer is fast approaching and we are getting ready to welcome all the visitors who come to enjoy our picturesque town. We've been working hard to make Camden even more user friendly. New signs directing visitors to convenient parking areas have been placed around town, Main Street (Rte. 1) is freshly paved and new, more visible, crosswalks are coming soon. The flowers are blooming in the lamp post baskets and new businesses and restaurants have joined the wonderful mix of downtown Camden. As for The Smiling Cow, we've got some great new products and our warm and friendly crew is ready to welcome you. Summer hours begin on June 20th when we will be open Monday - Saturday 9am-9pm and Sunday 9:30-9:00pm. Hope to see you soon!
