We hiked up to see the view. However, we only got half way and had to turn around. The trail could have been marked a little bit better for "newbie" hikers. Basically, we didn't cross the road to finish the end of the trail. My 8 year old and I could have done it easily, but the 6 year old... More

Camden Hills has wonderful trails that go to the top of a summit with breathtaking views. Also good for cross country skiing.

Take an hour or two and breathe in the fresh salty air and take in the view. Bring someone you love and a picnic lunch. Life is good.

Drove to the top in late fall on a clear day and the view was amazing! Very easy to get to from downtown and worth the trip.

You get great views from the highpoint in the park. You can walk/hike to the top or drive and park at the top. The views include Camden, points further south and points north. There are many other paths and other entrances so that you can do a different walk each time you visit.

We hiked Mt. Megunticook on a nice mid-November day. The hiking trail is nicely carved through pretty woods. There are a few great overlooks of mountains, Camden harbor, ocean, and islands. It's about 2.8 miles round trip. Watch your step on wet leaves and rocks in the fall! Trail conditions must be great in the summer. We really liked the... More

Out of 8 campgrounds along the east coast- this one had the best showers! The water was warm and lasted about 5 minutes before you had to press the button again. Sites were secluded and quiet. Great location and beautiful!

We hiked up to Ocean Lookout, then took Tablelands Trail over to Mount Battie, then returned to the parking lot via the Nature Trail--the views were spectacular!! The ranger at the entrance station told us that the trail over to Mt. Battie was easy--we are in our late 60's; he said he was 72--I want to say that it is... More
