I had been to the park on a previous trip and loved the view from Mount Battie, so I took my family there. Unfortunately, the weather was not cooperating this time and we could not see anything past the fog. We decided not to hike up but instead drove to the top. On our way out of the park we... More

Camden Hills state park provides a wide range of hiking experiences. If you just want to see great views you can just drive up Mount Battie by paying the fee at the main park entrance as I have done. They will provide you with a bare bones map of the park. Another alternative is to walk up Mount Battie directly... More

The camp sites are spacious and rather private. There are great hikes in the park and the location is a few minutes outside of the the town of Camden, ME. We would love to go back!

My husband and I spent a week in the area on vacation. We went hiking at Camden Hills State Park twice. The first day we went in the main park entrance off of Route 1 and hiked up to the Ocean Lookout. Follow the trail to Mt Megunticook and its on your way to the top! The view was amazing!... More

Very nice nature area to rest and picnic with the kids. We went up to Mount Battie and overlooked the ocean and the town of Camden below.

This park is gorgeous, but the trails are poorly maintained and very steep. You can easily twist your ankle if not careful. I suggest driving up to Mt Battie rather thank Hiking.

Some of the best day hiking in Maine. Wonderful views of both Penobscot Bay and Lake Megunticook. Lots of options to make your hike as long or short and as difficult or easy as you like. When you're finished go into Camden and grab a sandwich at Boyton-McKay or an ice cream at Camden Cone. It's a short walk into... More

Just a hop, skip and jump outside of Camden - easy, quick car trip to the top! My 89 year old Dad loved it because there were some great views from the car. This place has some huge rocks and boulders so one of the lookouts isn't able to be accessed by wheelchair or an elderly, wobbly guy but the... More

It provided a good view of the surrounding area and at the time we visited was quite quiet so it was a pleasure just to sit and drink in the view. It is a must if you are in the area.
