If you are in Camden or driving through you MUST take the little detour ride through this State Park. The views are outstanding! It is a very pretty park and Maine should be very proud of it. Reasonable entry fee, too.

We found this state park to have it all. Great campsites that are well spaced and hiking right at your door step. Also very close to town so there was not a lot of driving required. We enjoyed the hikes to Mt Battie and Megunticook. The views are spectacular. We will definitely return.

This was a clean and well kept campground very close to Camden. It has spacious sites. I would have liked a laundry on site.

Great park, so close to Camden Harbor, lots of room for big Motorhomes and tent camping, drive up to the top of Mt. Battie for a spectacular view of Camden Harbor.

The park is a great place for a picnic--plenty of tables scattered throughout. You can find one in an interesting spot while on a walk, or there are some close to parking areas if you have someone not able to walk far. There are great walking trails--both in the woods and along the waterfront.

Super nice and helping staff! Very welcoming people proud of their park. Clean and in good condition sanitary. Great campground with a lot of trees and good size sites for tent or RV. Nothing like the RV resorts where campers are jam packed like sardines. Many trails for hikers with various level of difficulty and length. The best view ever... More

Camp sites at this park are good size and very well spaced apart, some sites have electricity and water. Park staff here is great and very helpful. Firewood is a little expensive but on the other hand it is good quality hardwood. (birch) Bathrooms are very clean and well maintained.

Spent two quick nights here in a tent in early September. We had read on Yelp that campsite 81 was the best due to its seclusion at the back of the park so we booked it several weeks in advance. When we arrived, the staff at the gate was very friendly and provided all the info we needed for our... More

Toured the park as a side trip. Surprising that the entry fee is based upon per person as opposed to per vehicle. The views on this nice warm crystal clear day were absolutely incredible! There was adequate staff found when needed and a small trip to the shoe area across from the main park entrance was charming as well, although... More

It is against my religion to hike uphill so I never miss the opportunity to drive to the top for a beautiful view. This was recommended to us by a friend who used to live in Camden and she was right. It was the most perfect day with clear skies and no haze and even my husband who is not... More
