River ducks has a great downtown location. It's off busy Rt 1 but you can still see it. Nice place to sit and relax over the river. Owners are great. Easy place for kids.

Ice cream and summer evenings go together. And are all the more special next to a stream, with a bridge decorated with colored lights. Generous servings.

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.

We are a family-owned ice cream stand in downtown Camden, Maine. Along with the creamiest soft serve in the whole state (really!), we offer 20 flavors of hard serve ice cream including Maine inspired flavors such as Maine Wild Blueberry, Maine Deer Tracks and Camden Cappuccino Crunch. Other yummy treats include milk shakes, sundaes, floats, wiggies, smoothies (10 flavors!) and so much more!
