The park is located just north of Camden, ME on Route 1. The picnic/day area is on the coast side and offers beautiful trails along the coast. There are a couple of paths you can take down to the waters edge and observe working lobster boats. The camping sites on on the west side of Route 1. The sites are... More

The 360 degree view from the top of auto road provided an exceptional view of Camden Harbor and several islands in Penobscot Bay. I thought access to the Maiden Cliff trail was via this road, but subsequently learned it is off Route 52. Plan B was the easy and less scenic shoreline trail. Tip - the senior all day pass... More

There is direct access to many trails from the camp area and you can, as we did, walk up the back of Mt Battie, via the access road, and hike down the front into town for breakfast.

Be sure to ride or walk to the the top of mountain for a great overview of the area. It is a only a few miles from downtown. Be careful NOT to take the Mt. Battie trail down as it was quite steep and rocky and I ended up in the town instead of the park!

If you want to see scenic Camden from a quaint neighborhood drive to see this view. It is not far from downtown and in a neat neighborhood. House are beautiful and you can see the lighthouse.

Lots of good hiking here -gorgeous coastal walk and wild blueberries here and there to pick. If you aren't up for hiking, you can drive to the top and still get a fabulous view.
