No membership is required to participate in MR programs and we make every attempt to keep our program fees low. Class fees are very reasonable and scholarships are available for those in need. We offer rowing programs for all levels, from beginners to competitive, and to all ages from 13 through senior citizens.

If you are an experienced rower and are interested in using one of our boats, or if you would like to store your own boat at our facility, please contact us for more information.

Come visit us in the Camden area for a rowing vacation! Stay at one of our many wonderful B&B’s, row with us in the morning and/or evening, then enjoy the ocean, hiking, local restaurants, sailing, shopping, and Maine hospitality.


It all started…..

……… on the thread of a dream in the fall of 2008, a group of passionate rowers in the Camden/Rockport area found a generous donor to help us buy some shells, and Megunticook Rowing was born. During the following winter of ’09 we worked with the Town of Camden to develop a license agreement giving us access to Megunticook Lake. We were able to park our trailer in the Barrett’s Cove parking lot and launch from the town beach there.

Following the 2009 season, we once again worked with the town, this time for permission to cut a path into the wooded section of land next to the beach, to build some temporary racks in a small clearing, and to install a dock from which to launch our shells. We are incredibly thankful to the town of Camden for their willingness and cooperation in allowing us to get Megunticook Rowing “on the water.”

In the fall of 2011, Megunticook Rowing became a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization.
