Friendship is a small town of approximately 1,200 located in Knox County, Maine. It is about a 40-minute drive from Rockland to the north and Boothbay Harbor to the south. The Friendship Sloop, which is a gaff-rigged sailboat designed for lobstering and fishing, takes its name from the town. For movie buffs, the majority of the film "Casper" was set in Friendship, although it was actually filmed in the nearby resort town of Rockport. Friendship is home to a fictional Gothic mansion called Whipstaff Manor, and the mansion and town also appear in the animated series "The Spooktacular New Adventures of Casper."With its picturesque setting in Knox County, the town of Friendship offers lots to see and do. Some of the best hiking trails in the state are located in the area, including the Mount Battie Trail. Other recreational activities in the area include swimming, fishing, boating, biking, golf, whale watching and birding.
