$6 per person really is cheap for the sight you will see from the top of the mountain. After spending the last few days exploring the Campden area, it really was something to be able to see the entirety of the area. You can see other key parts of Maine's coastal region from the top, including the Rockport Harbor, Lincolnville... More

Terrific views! Beautiful location in a beautiful town. The observation tower is made of stone and is a really nice place to take pictures.

A beautiful view from the top and an interesting observation tower! Drive or walk to this place. There are two climbs at this park: Mount Battie and Mount Megunticook. I DO NOT recommend the Megunticook hike as it is VERY steep and rocky and I met up with many people who turned back. I suggest taking a picnic and driving... More

From this vantage point you can see some really good views of Camden and the harbor! If you are there when the sun starts to set, the boats look like they are lit up.

Wow...the views are beautiful from the top of this mountain. You can see for miles! You can drive up to the top and walk around, so wheel chairs could easily get around up there. Next time I'd like to do some hiking on the trail in the area.

Though it was foggy and visibility was quite reduced, we enjoyed the summit and the tower lookout. The mountain in the fog was a cool experience as well.

Can't beat this view on a warm Summer evening. The view of Camden Harbor will mellow you right out. Our Airbnb host recommended the evening vs the morning given the angle of the sun. She was right. You can drive right to the top, then a very short walk.
