Stayed here in the fall while traveling in Camden for work. Told the ranger that I wanted to be away from the RVs and didn't mind a walk to the bathrooms, and he put me in a site that was tucked away from everything and everyone. Great tree cover, fire pit in good shape, and flat ground to pitch a... More

I was surprised, perhaps the time of the year, that there were very few people at the park. The park is a wonderful location for a picnic and an ideal place for families with young children who like to hoot, holler and scream. Young children that are not conditioned to sit quietly usually are not appreciated by other patrons in... More

What an amazing experience for a couple from DownUnder to be able to park the car safely at the entrance to the park and hike the couple of miles up well formed trails to the ski cabin. Our friend had booked this gorgeous cabin for a overnight stay, snow had fallen a day or so earlier and the ample supply... More

Many easy hikes to the summit with great views on all sides. Visit Maiden Cliff for a beautiful view of Megunticook Lake and read the history behind the Maiden Cliff name.

Try never to miss an opportunity to either walk or drive up to the top of the Camden Hills (hiking trail is entirely separate from road access) if it is a sunny or even partly sunny day. The views are wonderful. You can also camp in this state park (seasonally) but I haven't done that for years so I can't... More

We popped in this park after lunch to see the views from Mount Battie. We then decided to stay the night in the RV parking. It had nice large spots nestled in the tall trees. We had quite a storm that night but we did not have any water problems and roads were accessible the next day. Great park!

Went up Mount Battie on a beautiful, sunny, fall day. Leaves a bit past peak but the yellows, orangey reds and rusts were still striking in spots. The view went on forever as it was a clear day. A wonderful spot that never gets old.

Probably the best view of Penobscot Bay may be seen from the top of Mt Battie. Steep but short auto road takes you to the top where there is spacious parking. You can easily climb the stone tower to get a panoramic view of the area. There are also many hiking trails that will take you to the top. Worth... More
