Looking to come and check out the colors of fall foliage in Maine? Coastal Maine in general, and Camden in particular with its copious wooded hillsides and sloping mountains full of sugar maples, elms, birches and oaks puts on a fantastic fall display. Its a great time for flowers in cottage gardens, farm stands selling harvest time produce, apples and pumpkins and a quilted pattern of golds reds and browns reflected in sparkling pristine lakes and the rocky promontories of the coast. A very popular Maine fall foliage tour is around Lake Megunticook and atop Mount Battie.
Typically the end of September and the beginning of October, but because trees are organic living things that respond to rain and sun and the length of winter, the date that the leaves change is different every year and can vary wildly. However, you should not let that stop you from making a reservation because if you wait, you may not get the dates and room you want.
