After a short drive to the summit of Mount Battie, we spent almost an hour drinking in the beauty of the view. The charts of the shore line and its island were well done. The bathrooms were very clean. But nothing compared to the beauty of the view. We were told that in the USA only Mount Battie & Cadillac... More

Great scenic views of Camden Harbor and coastal Maine. An easy drive up the mountain. Parking is close to the summit, and walking is easy. You can climb the Tower for a slightly better view. Well worth a visit when in Camden.

excellent views and enough room to avoid others at the summit as you can also drive to the top. The tower is an interesting structure that you can climb the stairs to the top.

Didn't want to leave this spectacular view! Harbor was full of Tall-ships for the Windjammer Festival. This drive is through the Camden Hills State Park entrance and then you will be allowed to enter for free and directed to the right drive up the hill. Well worth taking your time for this respite!

We spent one night camped in Camden Hills State Park in our motorhome, so naturally we drove up the mountain to see the view. The view from the top of Mount Battie is spectacular. Almost as good as the view from the top of Cadillac Mountain in Acadia National Park. If the weather cooperates you can see the mountain tops... More

Mount Battie offers a lovely view of Camden and Penobscot Bay. We didn't have time to go on the trails.

If you teavel to Camden Maine area and the weather is clear, this climb (by hiking or car) is well worth the trip. Views are spectacular, view Camden from above and many islands as well. .

We have been to the top many times the view is always great and worth going up, you can drive or hike to the top. We were able to watch the fireworks from the top for the Schooner Days Celebration.

The day we were at Mount Battie the weather could not have been more perfect and the sky more clear. We simply loved the view, perfect for seeing Camden and the harbor.
