We're Mainers, so we've been here many times. Spectacular view of the harbor & surrounding mountains.

One of the most beautiful scenes in the northeast USA. Because it was December and quite cold last visit, there was only one vessel in the bay: the ferry to Islesboro. the view of Vinalhaven was clear, the water flat and cold. Drive up, or even better, take the hiking trail if you have time and the weather is reasonable.

The view from Mount Battie is one of the best views I have ever had the pleasure of seeing. Not only is the view great but the entire Mount Battie park is extremely well taken care of. I work in Camden and am always recommending Mount Battie as a sight to see but I finally went up myself and brought... More

A must see when in Camden. Easy access up road from entrance to State Park. Better and more fun is to take one of the many trails to the summit. Can't miss the star at the summit from Thanksgiving evening till after New Years. A fun cross country ski on moonlit night with spectacular views across the bay!

People of all ages will enjoy spending time at Mount Battie in Camden, Maine. There are many different hiking trails along the way up. You can park your car at different levels, where you are comfortable hiking from. You can start at the bottom and enjoy a nice hike all the way up the mountain with spectacular views, or you...

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.

Easy to get to and abundant parking. You have a choice of either driving to the top or hiking. My husband and I hiked the trails to the top and took the road back down. 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
