The view from the summit of Mt Battie is so beautiful. Our family of 5 - adults and teenagers just sat and soaked up the sun and views for over an hour! If you get a clear day, like we had, you will see for miles. To think that I had been to Camden years ago and missed the experience... More

From the top of the mountain you can do as local poet Edna St. Vincent Millay said, "All I could see from where I stood were three long mountains and a wood. I turned and looked the other way and saw three islands in the bay." She did not mention that you would be directly above the quaint village of... More

It had a nice view of the local bays, but we were just there to look. We paid to go up and look. However, with your payment, as it is a part of the Camden Hills State Park, there are camping and picnicking areas available, but we did not use them.

The view from the top of Mount Battie in Camden ME is evocative of an elevated view from the top of a hilly Caribbean island looking down onto the local harbor -- without the turquoise water -- but beautiful all the same. This is Maine at its best.

The view from this easily accessed overlook is spectacular! I would say drive up Mt Battie and if you want a hike, hike Mt Megunticook to give an even higher perspective on the coastline.

Great hike up to Mount Battie, though very wet in places. some parts of the trail were steep, but not hard to climb. Beautiful view from the top. It took us about 45 minutes up and a bit less back down.

We started to Hike up and it was Brutal. Hilly and steep with wet stones from all the underground springs. The trail is 2 miles, about 1 hour. But, you have to hike BACK down, so make that 2 hours. We drove up and were rewarded with gorgeous views of Camden Harbor and the lakes.

Camden is full of beautiful scenery, but this view tops them all. Well worth the trip to the top of the mountain, however you choose to get there. (We took the easy way and drove.)
