There is no reason not to stop and spend at least an hour here. The view is excellent, landscape is beautiful and the park has very informative historical story boards placed throughout. Photo ops at the little stone building at the top are great. Fog can be an issue, but where isn't it? Park staff is nice and they keep... More

Hiking trails in the park were rather icy when we visited in early January, but the car road was plowed (closed off to vehicles however), so we hoofed it up a fairly steep incline for about 2 miles and were rewarded with fantastic views from the top (complete with a tower for a 360 panorama). Definitely an excellent spot for... More

We went to the top of Mount Battie on Christmas Day and the views were stunning, clear skies with islands in one direction and hills in the other.

The best spot to catch a panoramic view of Camden Harbor and the Penobscot Bay. This is a great place to grab some quiet time and some great photos. Bring a picnic lunch. You won't want to leave.

Start in Camden Hills State Park and walk or drive up the road to the top. Great views of the harbor and town on clear days. At Christmas there is a big lit star on the mountain.

Unassuming little shack with fantastic food! Since it was close to our motel, we gave it a try. I would travel across town to get their fare.

We were in Rockport for a family 60th anniversary. My cousin, who lives in the area, recommended a visit to Mt. Battie. We are glad we took her recommendation. The views are spectacular! We only wished we had more time to walk the trails. Even the bathrooms were clean and not offensive (of course, we visited in late October). When... More

Lovely drive up to the top of the mountain with spectacular views. It was pretty cold when we were there in late October 2015 and likely would have spent more time hiking if we were there in spring or summer. This is worth the time to stop and enjoy the views.

This is very worthwhile for a panoramic view of Camden and Penobscot Bay. You can hike to the summit from the car park of drive. Bring the camera and binoculars, you will be stunned by the beauty and by how far you can see. Also a windbreaker or light jacket, it was windy on the day we visited.

We hiked from the park entrance, up to Ocean View on Mt. Megunticook, then over to Mt. Battie and back--nice hike, except for some rocks and boulders that needed to be climbed over for a short distance after leaving Ocean View. As I pointed out on a previous review of the park, the park map is not accurate, and trails... More
