Winter camping, in a rustic shelter, is also offered and available by reservation by calling the park. Renowned for the panoramic view of Camden Harbor and Penobscot Bay from the top of Mt. Battie, which inspired Edna St. Vincent Millay's poem "Renascence," the park still inspires wonder in visitors today. (This excerpt taken from the Camden Hills State Park website)
We brought our knowledge of fermenting and distilling back home to Maine, and we've been committed ever since to crafting wines and spirits from real Maine ingredients. Maine's unique growing seasons have become our inspiration, and we delight in finding new distillations to make from the bounty of Maine fruits and grains.  (This excerpt taken from the Sweetgrass Farm Winery and Distillery website)

The original light was a “fixed white lens lantern, 18 feet above the breakwater. This lantern hung on an iron crane on top of stone beacon, 24 feet above sea level.” On August 15, 1892 the beacon was changed to two red lanterns, spaced six feet apart, one above the other placed on a mast atop the stone pillar. In 1895, the beacon was further improved by providing a six-by-six foot building at the base of the mast. (This excerpt taken from the Rockland Breakwater Lighthouse website)
