Laite Memorial Beach is located off Metcalf Road in Camden, Maine. This scenic beach offers enough amenities to stop to enjoy the view or to make it a day at the beach. The park area leading to the beach is steep and may be difficult to navigate. Separated by a seawall, the beach area has a mild slope and the rocky sand. Old bands of seaweed show how much of the beach remains open during high-tide. Near downtown Camden, Laite Memorial Beach offers a little bit of everything for the entire family.
