Fall Hours

Yes, the summer has flown by and we have now changed to fall hours: M-Sat 9:30-5:30 and Sun 10-5.

This is such a lovely time to visit Camden now that things have quieted down a bit, and the weather is spectacular... crystal clear, warm days and cool nights. Soon the leaves will start changing from green to brilliant colors; don't miss this amazing season in Maine.

It has been a wonderful season here at the "Cow"... very busy and so many lovely people enjoying our state and our town (hope you were one of them). We will be open through the end of October and then take a rest for a few months as we go on buying trips and prepare for next spring... our 79th year!

Fall Hours

Another summer comes to an end and we are enjoying a somewhat slower pace as the days grow shorter and the nights chillier. We will miss the hustle and bustle of this extraordinarily busy past few months, and we are so grateful to all the wonderful customers and friends who shopped with us this year.

We are now open Monday- Saturday from 9:30-6:00 and on Sunday from 10:00-5:30. Hope you will have a chance to visit Maine during the lovely fall months!

Closed for the season

The Smiling Cow is now in hibernation for the winter! Thanks to all our customers and friends for making this such a banner season. My thanks to the incredible staff of Cow Girls who contribute so much to our success... they are a pleasure to work with!

We will be busy planning and buying during the winter months to get ready for a new year and will open in mid April to begin our 77th season here in Camden.

Happy winter to all and see you in the spring!

Summer Hours

We are now open from 9AM-9PM Mondays thru Saturdays and 9:30AM-9PM on Sundays... summer is here!

Fall Hours

As of Labor Day we have moved into fall schedule with open hours Monday- Saturday 9:30-5:30 and Sunday from 10-5. This is such a great time to be in Maine: a bit quieter, a more relaxed pace of living and beautiful weather with warm days and cooler nights. Lots of events going on and plenty to do. We love this time of year!

Why We Call it Vactionland!

Why We Call it Vacationland

Sceanic Maine

With more than 6,000 lakes and ponds, 5,000 streams, over 30 state parks and almost 3,500 miles of coastline, it's no wonder Maine is known as "Vacationland" (it's even on our license plates!)  


Over 80% of Maine - that's about 17 million acres - remains forested with a beautiful mix of white pine, hemlock, spruce, fir and a variety of hardwoods.  


Between the breeze coming off the ocean and the naturally air purifying nature of trees, it not only looks good here, it smells good too!

Summer 2018

Our 78th season here in Camden is now in full swing and our hours are:

Mon-Sat: 9AM- 9PM

Sun: 9:30AM- 9PM


Hope to see you here soon!

Our 75th Season!

What an amazing season our 75th was! Beginning with our opening celebration in April and continuing with contests, giveaways and visits from old friends and former employees, we celebrated the whole season long. We are so grateful to still be family owned on beautiful Main Street in Camden. We look forward to many more years right here where the mountains meet the sea. Many thanks to our wonderful friends and customers who have made The Smiling Cow a Camden, Maine tradition for 75 years.
