Stopped for a cone after a round of golf at Samoset. The 'one scoop' cones are huge--can't imagine what the doubles and triples look like! It's good ice cream, not great--not quite as creamy as others I've had--but still yummy. Worth a visit.

Want ice cream when you are in Camden? Visit River Ducks ice cream! Tons of popular flavors as well as Maine specific flavors. They offer cones and bowls of ice cream at a reasonable price. Service is quick and the staff was great. There are...a few seats outside to enjoy your ice cream and if you stop in close to dark, it is all lit up with fun lights! Very cute!More

Cute location right outside our hotel. The ice cream was delish and the girls working there were very sweet. River Ducks was a nice way to end the day.

Perfect spot for an after dinner treat. Though the official closing time was 9p, no one in line was turned away. The flavor selections were staggering, but when in Maine, you have to go with Moose tracks…delicious!

They have two windows and work fast. Many locals and visitors know about this place the line can grow long. Ice cream was excellent. I had peppermint which had just enough candy in it and great flavor. We enjoyed excellent chocolate chip mint and other...flavors.More

Great ice cream. Coffee Carmel Ice Cream cone with sprinkles was to die for and the chocolate shake with whip cream was also a winner.
