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.

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.

I was surprised, perhaps the time of the year, that there were very few people at the park. The park is a wonderful location for a picnic and an ideal place for families with young children who like to hoot, holler and scream.

Our friend had booked this gorgeous cabin for a overnight stay, snow had fallen a day or so earlier and the ample supply... More

Many easy hikes to the summit with great views on all sides. Visit Maiden Cliff for a beautiful view of Megunticook Lake and read the history behind the Maiden Cliff name.
