Sit on the rocks and take pictures from Mount Battie...for the most vivid color, go in the early afternoon when the... More

Great Campground with lots to offer for families. The campground is located just outside a small town. The town offers shopping for those who want to get out. We did a lot of hiking and biking. They have lots of trails that go through the park for the beginner to more advanced. The jungle gym was not great, but the... More

Drove to the top of the mountain and the observation tower and saw some spectacular views. There are plenty of hiking trails and places to take photos, across the street there is pretty picnic area. It's located just north of downtown. Enjoy!

We didn't have time to to go for a hike unfortunately, but we drove to the top and it was worth the entrance fee. The view, on a sunny, clear day, is spectacular and worth stoping by.

We planned this hiking day based on a forecast of afternoon sun but sadly visibility was awful the entire day. I guess we'll just have to go back to see those splendid views from the top of Mount Battie overlooking the Penobscot Bay. Regardless, the hiking itself was excellent. Challenging, at times, the trails are fairly well marked. The payoff... More

Great trails in Camden Hills State Park from easy to more difficult. Trails are well sign-posted. Maiden Cliff Trail went through forested area, and ended with a great view of the lake.

We recently visited Camden State park on our vacation to Maine. It was a great place to hike for couples, families, and dogs. We chose a round trip hike to Mt Megunticook. It goes by Ocean look out where we had a wonderful view of the town and ocean below. On the way back we stopped at the lookout again... More

Very beautiful view of Camden and the harbor. Make sure you don't go on a foggy day! You don't need more than a few minutes here, but it is worth taking a detour up the hill to see the spectacular view.

Great place to hike. The hike up the McCunticook trail to the top will give you a spectacular view of Camden harbor.

Beautiful spot to take photos and enjoy the views and what the area has to offer. You can see the busy, yet quaint harbor of Camden below the summit of Mount Battie. If you climb the mountain during the Friendship sloop regatta or Schooner days, you are in for a treat. Make sure you pick a dry and clear day.
