  • Camden Snow Bowl is an outstanding small-scale ski area, including views of Penobscot Bay. It looks like they are planning to build a new lodge, which will be a most welcome addition.
  • I travel down a few times a year to go mountian biking and they have done a great job with the trails. Its not a super large network but definetly can get a good days ride in. Staff keeps maintenance very up to date, and they are starting to make even more trails
  • Friday 20 March ,15 6:45 pm Area is advertised on web to be open till 8pm today-------and after selling my son a ticket for evening skiing as on the previous Friday-------hill shut down at 6pm-------2 hours skiing for $ 17 (student) A poor performance. All his friends were warned and changed plans to come. This type of operation stopped us from purchasing season tickets some years ago.
  • Lots of fun, great skiing!!!
