The ice cream was delicious of course, with a nice list of Maine-centric flavors. But the setting was also beautiful. Offering seating right near a footbridge over the river, this is a scenice spot, day or night. The footbridge is decorated and at night, it's lit up.

Nice place to get an ice cream cone in a scenic location in town. You can sit at one of the tables on their property to eat or walk across the pretty flower covered bridge.

We passed this little stand every time we walked into town so it was very tempting to stop. They had a very good selection of flavors and the serving size was just right.

This ice cream stand is a bit out of the way if all you do is walk up and down main street. But it sits next to a good - sized stream that goes through town with a walking bridge over it. The night we stopped it was being patronized by mostly locals. Interesting flavors each with a Maine theme... More

They offer both hard and soft serve ice cream. They have many flavor so to choose from and the prices are excellent. A large 2 dip cone was under $3.00. We have been traveling through Maine for a week and ice cream is normally double that price. It also offers some outdoor seating.

I know I only gave them a rating of three, why they do ice cream and they do it well with an incredible atmosphere. You can't go wrong, plus there are the ducks!

Excellent ice cream choices, but it's Hershey's. We enjoyed the "Maine" flavors. Great value for price.

Right next to a footbridge over stream that flows through downtown Camden. The ice cream is good (Gifford's maybe?). The only downside was that only one server was working so the line started to get to be a bit long. I don't know how you can staff a place with only one person on Labor Weekend (what if someone has... More

Loved this little ice cream stand! They serve Hershey's ice cream, so it's not homemade or anything but I love me some Hershey's ice cream. They also have more unique flavor a that are "Maine inspired". My husband got the fly fishing something flavor that was really good. Also, very cheap!!! We got two ice creams (2 scoops each) for...
