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.

The Manchester Airport in Manchester New Hampshire is near Boston. It can be a good alternative to Logan Airport if you are planning on driving from there. I have found that the rates can be cheaper flying into Manchester and then driving up to Camden Maine, but you should check around. If you have time to tour, the small section of New Hampshire’s coastline can be quite interesting to visit. Also Portsmouth New Hampshire is a nice small New England Town with a lot of charm and good restaurants. The Strawberry Banke area with its beautiful park and gardens on the waterfront is a nice mix of old urban sea town and small city culture.

Airport Code: RKD
Drive Time to Camden Maine: 20 Minutes
Connecting Airlines: Cape Air connects to RKD from Boston Logan Airport

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.
