Car: Necessary

Camp Ellis is a beautiful, peaceful village, perfect for relaxing, enjoying ocean walks, reading, and even dining. But if you're looking for more excitement, within very short driving distance you can reach Old Orchard Beach (10 min.) where you'll find entertainment, restaurants, pubs/clubs, golfing, and even a roller coaster and carnival rides. In a 25-min. drive you can be in beautiful, historic Portland known for wonderful food, shopping and site-seeing, or in Kennebunkport, summer home of George & Barbara Bush. There is so much to see along the coast of Maine, you simply won't have enough time to take it all in.
