A short drive from the Inns in Camden, the summit provides an incredible view of the area. We had a picnic lunch at the top. Although $9 was a bit steep for an entry fee.

This is a yearly trek with our dogs. Love the scenery and the walk around the summit. You can hike up or ride up. No military discount unless you are Maine Nat'l Guard--state park rules. Nice camping areas for primitive camping. A few E/W hookups out front.

We went to Camden Hills State Park after lunch and went straight to the top of Mount Battie. The views were wonderful. Everything was very accessible.

We paid the senior admission of $3 and it was worth every penny. It was a clear beautiful October afternoon and we spent two hours walking around, taking pictures and enjoying the scenery. There is a port-a-potty near the parking area but I didn't see a drinking fountain.

Trails are steep but well maintained. Lots of other hiking trails to choose from if you don't want to go up the mountain.Total time was... More

The harbor of Camden is a beautiful sight from this location. It's a short stroll down a path to see around the corner. Everyone must see the port from this location.

Mount Battie gives a great view of the harbor and surrounding area. Easy drive up and plenty of parking/ Climb up the tower for a even better view and take some time to walk around the area.
