We arrived in Camden in the late afternoon and on the recommendation of our innkeeper drove up to the top of Mount Battie for the panoramic view of Camden and the Penobscot Bay in the setting sun. It was a great way to get a feel for the area, enjoy a beautiful view, and stretch our legs. There is a... More

Great for early morning hikes/drives to watch the sunrise…bring coffee! Or make the climb in the evening for a gorgeous sunset. The views of Camden and the harbor are breathtaking!

Lovely views of the landscape, Camden town, harbor, boats, islands, & tower on top. Interesting history about the old Summit House. Friendly, helpful staff at the entrance.

The views were incredible, much better than expected. We drove to the top because we were short on time. Many who hiked up the trail said it was enjoyable and worthwhile. Next time we will hike. On the day we went, the visibility was very clear and you could see 50+ miles an every direction.

Definitely worth going to,especially if you like to view things from on high. Great view of downtown Camden, the bay and surrounding area. The downside was we had read that it was a great place to picnic, so we took lunch. We thought there might've picnic benches, but we found none, so found some shade under a bush. Just know... More

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.
