I always feel like the marina itself and the destination should have two separate ratings. In this case they’d both be 5 stars.
Lyman-Morse provides a great place to stay in Camden. The inner harbor floats put you right in the middle of all the schooner activity as well as being close to downtown. The free launch service is great, though it stopped running at 3:30 PM after Labor Day. The heads showers and laundry room ashore are immaculate. The courtesy car made a trip to Hannaford’s for groceries very easy.
Camden itself is a wonderful place to visit - in fact we extended our stay to enjoy more of it. There are lots of good restaurants (Marriner’s serves a great breakfast). The library is out of this world in terms of atmosphere and architecture - including the park and amphitheater giving great views of the harbor. We enjoyed the free walking tour on Friday afternoon.
We also hiked/climbed to the summit of Mount Battie which provided unexcelled views of Penobscot Bay and the islands.
We love Camden and will be back for another extended stay next year.
