The Camden Parks and Recreation Department manages and/or maintains more than 700 acres of town property and several facilities, including parks and numerous trailheads, overlooks, sections of the Riverwalk, the (former) tannery property, various boat launches, and the Camden Snow Bowl facility and grounds. During the winter months, Camden Parks and Recreation staff operate and maintain Camden Snow Bowl, which is open for skiing and snowboarding through the end of March. The Snow Bowl is also home to the Jack Williams Toboggan Chute and the annual U.S. National Toboggan Championships, held in early February. The toboggan chute is also open to the public when conditions permit, including adequate ice on Hosmer Pond.

Ragged Mountain Recreation Area offers a ball field, tennis courts and a swimming dock with ADA access for canoes and kayaks. There are a variety of hiking trails, including more than one route to the summit with incredible views of Penobscot Bay, the islands and the surrounding mountains and hillsides. The Snow Bowl has also become a wildly popular mountain biking venue, with a host of bike trails designed and maintained by mountain staff, members of Midcoast Maine New England Mountain Biking Association, members and volunteers with Coastal Mountains Land Trust and volunteers from the biking and general community.
