Needless to say, Logan airport is a major airport. If you are visiting Boston it is ideal. You can rent a car, and tour the city.

Airports that Service: Colgan Air
Colgan Air serves Augusta with small commuter planes that fly from Boston Massachusetts.
Augusta is the state Capital, and is about on parallel with Camden but about 50 miles west. If you plan a trip through lake country, or playing golf at the Belgrade Lakes, perhaps you should consider this airport. Augusta is a small city so there are more options for car rentals than Rockland, even though the airport is not much larger.

Bangor is a nice alternative to Portland if you plan on seeing Northern and or Western Maine before you arrive in Camden or on your way back to Bangor to the airport. Bangor is about equidistant to Camden Maine from the northwest. Although its name is a misnomer, because there are no international flights available at Bangor International Airport. The City of Bangor now has a slots casino that some may be interested in.

There are more options for airlines and rental car companies, as well as the proximity of the lovely City of Portland Maine if you fly into the Portland Jetport. Although in the summer, it is a good idea to reserve a rental car as early as possible. This is a major airport with several major airlines serving as well as car rental companies. Flying into Portland can give you a chance to tour the Maine coast as you drive north to Camden. Many people enjoy Portland’s waterfront, as well as stopping at Red’s Eats in Wiscasset on Route 1 on the way North to Camden.

This airport is the closest and most convenient, however, it can be the most expensive, and the commercial planes that fly into it are very small.
Pluses: the least amount of driving. If you fly into Rockland Airport in Owl’s Head Maine, (the airport code is “RKD”) you are about a twenty minute drive South of Camden Maine. The downside is that the commercial airplanes that fly into RKD are very small. Also, the fact that it is a very small airport means there are less options for ground transportation. While there are taxi services in this area, they tend to be limousine type, so you must call them to come pick you up, and also, they tend to be expensive.
There is a car rental place at RKD, but there are not a lot of cars there, so reserve a rental car well in advance if you plan to rent out of Rockland.
