Battie is Beautiful

The view is breathtaking and you must see it magnified for a quarter! The bay area is simply beautiful on a sunny day. Worth the trip up to the top to see the town and more.

Well worth the drive or climb. Awesome view from the top was unexpected! Even on a chilly day there were dozens of people making the climb.

Just as payment was made to the park, the fog rolled in! Nevertheless we drove up to the vantage point. When the fog cleared up a bit, we were entreated to a beautiful view of the harbour. Explore the terrain a bit, climb up the tower and peer into the lenses to identify the landmarks. Glad we made it up... More

This is a state park with a little fee to drive up the mountain. Totally worth it! The views are spectacular. Parking is ample. Would be gorgeous any time of day to visit. Lots of room for a picnic, but there's lots of food at the bottom of the mountain along the main drag near and in Camden. Reasonable hike... More

Loved the drive up to Mt Battie. Very easy drive, paved road. Small admittance fee. Gorgeous view of Penobsvot Bay and Camden . A must see drive if one is in the camden area. Only a few miles from downtown Camden to the road,s entrance.

If you are in Camden, take a trip to the top of Mount Battie. You can hike or you can drive, but the view is beautiful. You can see the harbor and the islands. Take a picnic lunch and find a place to sit and enjoy the view. There are bathrooms at the top. Also, the tower is where the... More

Take the ride up--or hike up--Mount Battie to see the beautiful coast of Maine spread out at your feet below. There's a minimal fee per car, but the road is well maintained and there's good parking at the top. It's a view that's hard to beat.

This is the view that prompted the lines: "ALL I could see from where I stood Was three long mountains and a wood; I turned and looked the other way, And saw three islands in a bay.

The views from the top of Mt. Battie are a must for any visitor. Since there was a lot of snow in Camden during my visit, snowshoes were the way to get there. Wearing my snowshoes, I climbed the face trail, which was very steep but very direct to the top. I expected to see lots of other hikers trekking... More

Easy drive up the mountain and well worth it. Incredible views of the Camden Harbor and Coast-line. Should be on your Camden "bucket-list."
