Camden Haven is a small harbour in the Mid North Coast region of New South Wales, Australia, approximately 30 km south of the major regional centre of Port Macquarie. The harbour is located where the Camden Haven River empties into the Tasman Sea.

Camden Haven is also the name given to a group of settlements located on the shores of Camden Haven and in the rural hinterland. Laurieton is the largest town and the commercial centre for Camden Haven, located on the harbour's western shore.

Other communities in the immediate vicinity of the harbour include North Haven and Dunbogan. Lakewood is a new residential area west of Laurieton, while further inland are the villages of Kew on the Pacific Highway and Kendall on the North Coast Line.

The Camden Haven region is bordered on the west by the Comboyne plateau. The district consists of fertile, well-watered valleys punctuated by several large mountains, notably the Three Brothers. The region's economy is based on tourism, fisheries, forestry and oyster farming.[2]
