So I don't know that I believe this hike is only 1 mile like the map says but it is steep which may make me feel that way. It's not a long hike and you soon find yourself on top of Maine with views down the coast, out to sea and over Camden. I would recommend this hike to anyone,... More

We did not have a lot of time for hiking, so we decided to come here and hike up to the Ocean Lookout. It was a fun, semi-strenous hike (we had younger kids with us who did complain a little on the way up). The summit offerred great views and a good place for us to have lunch. We would... More

Mt. Battie was a fabulous place to view the entire coastline. Could see Bar Harbor and many islands from there. The hiking was a little intense for one my age, but it was a great time of the year and the weather is warm. Be careful not to start on the hiking trails too late if you are there in... More

We drove to the top of Mt Battie and the views from here were spectacular. The park also offers numerous woodland trails. Our 2-year old loved collecting the acorns and fir cones on the ground as well as looking out for the many chipmunks.

I spent a good part of a day here in late September. I drove up Mt Battie and enjoyed the views from there, after which I hit the trails and ended up taking one of the more difficult ones up to Ocean View Lookout, which at 1300 ft is actually higher than Mt Battie. The trails are well-marked, with rocks... More

During a recent visit to Camden, we had planned to take a Day Trip to Acadia National Park. Sadly, we realized the government shutdown would make that impossible. Our Innkeeper suggested we might enjoy Camden Hills State Park instead. What a treat and we didn't have to spend a long day driving. Just missed having Tea & Popovers at Jordan... More

We were tent campers here, at the end of the 2013 season, but even then the campground was full. Tent spaces without hook ups were very well space. There were water faucets located close to the sites. Tent pads were a bit hard as they were packed pit gravel Bath houses were spacious and very clean. The park is divided... More

Just off of Rt1, the park offers a great vista of the Camden coastline and adjacent islands. Informative signage is a help in orienting the coastal communities and watching the harbor traffic below.

There is No excuse to visit Mt Battie, you can drive right up in the car. They say the hike is fairly easy but we didn't see how it could be. It is up a mountain. The view is unbelievable and takes you right back to Peyton Place. Just to drive through Camden is a pleasure but then to see... More

There was a tower at the top and you could see 360 degrees. I thought it was an amazing view of the town and harbor and surrounding islands.
