The hike up the Megunticook trail is moderately challenging, but what a view awaits you! The entire expanse of Camden Harbor spreads out to the horizon. It's a fairly populated trail, so don't come here seeking solitude, but it's well worth the climb.

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.

We camped for three nights at Camden Hills and spent one of our two days mostly in the park. The hike up to Mount Meganticook was well worth the gorgeous view. Camping-wise, this was an OK park.

We went for a 2 1/2 hours walk in Camden Hills State Park. It was a wonderful experience. We walked from the parking near the main entry to Ocean Lookout, which took us a little more than an hour for one way. The way was steep and a bit wet but doable and the view from Ocean Lookout just awsome.... More

Lots and lots of hiking trails, and if you're there in late summer, you'll find tons of blueberries!
