Traveling to Camden, ME is always a must for me. I went to Mt. Battie in 2012 and 2013 (I wasn't able to put the correct date in the review). I went solo and with a group of friends the following year. Mt. Battie overlooks the entire area and brings a bit of peace. I still look for the pair... More

This is the number one thing to do in Camden for a reason! Its the second highest coastal mountain on the entire east coast of the US, second only to Cadillac Mountain in Acadia. It's located in Camden Hills State Park which is only one mile from downtown Camden. You can walk out there. There is a lovely sidewalk all... More

Definitely worth the drive up and the few dollars it costs to get into the Camden Hills State Park. The views are quite stunning of Camden Harbor, Penobscot Bay and the surrounding islands. There are also some great hiking trails.

If you're anywhere near Camden, a trip to the summit of Mt. Battle is a must! There's a nominal charge to drive up, but there are also hiking trails that will also get to the top in about two hours. The summit provides a spectacular panoramic view of the hills, lakes, Camden Harbor, and Penobscot Bay - simply breathtaking!

Fantastic views! There are also many hiking trails. There was an entrance fee to get into the park. The man working the gate was very friendly and personable.

If you can, you must hike the Mt. Battie trail. We hiked with 5 kids (aged 5-10) and all of them LOVED it and made it out and back without incident. The lure of the "castle" at the top was enough to banish the midway "whining". Bring bug spray. There are primative toilets at the base and head of the... More

Amazing view. Less than 10 minutes from B&B. Loved the tower and the map to identify all the islands.

We drove up to the top of Mount Battie and got out and just couldn't believe the view. Absolutely stunning!

Great view of Camden and the ocean. Easy to access by car road and a nice place for a picnic. If you camp at the State Park (Camden Hills State Park) your admission fee is included. Tent camping starts at $27.00 per day for non Maine residents.
