I have to say that my wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our day here. Weather was perfect, the ranger at the entrance was very friendly like all Maine folks seem to be and the HIKE up to Mt Battie was a real treat. I capitalized hike because I am completely annoyed by previous reviewers who don't like to share some... More

Although scenic, I was surprised about the $9.00 car charge to drive up a hill, which took less than 5 minutes. I understand parks need to make money, but $3-5 would have been more reasonable.

My sister and I visited Camden and wanted to see the views from Mount Battie. When we entered the park we were shocked to learn of the park fee ($4.50 for out of state, $3 for residents) but as we wanted to check out the scenery we paid and carried on. The view alone was, of course, worth the money.... More

This park was a great place to snowshoe and a challenging uphill hike. When you hit yo the top, it was we'll worth it with amazing views of the ocean. We'll be back!

We stayed here on the way up to Acadia. Parked up in the State Park Campground in our super duper US Style 35 footer RV (huge by our standards, but we were the baby brother compared to our neighbours!). This campground is simply brilliant. The rangers were so friendly and helpful. We didn't book as were there in off-season (October)... More

The multi-use trail is well groomed for cross country skiing as well as snowshoeing and has some beautiful views.

A 180- degree perspective to see the ocean, ships and part of the city of Camden. From the parking on the top of the mountain or from other parkings, il is also possible to take walking trails of various levels of difficulties.

A great place to spend a short time time. Beautiful views, walking paths, take a picnic. Or just relax. Incredible photo ops.

Drive up to the top of Camden Hills and marvel at the wonderful sights. You can clearly see the town of Camden and the Camden harbor. Absolutely gorgeous views all around.

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
