This camp ground is perfect, two miles to town to the shops and restaurants. The camp ground itself is clean and well managed. We have stayed here in the past and like it for the strict rules and cleanliness. We always take the same camp site, lots of j Hiking close by,

The campsite is right off Route 1 outside of Camden, Maine. The site has two loops, one mostly tents - higher up the hill and further away from the highway, and the second loop a mixture of larger and medium sites for RV's and larger tent sites. The bathrooms/showers were central to the loops and were clean and well organized.... More

We had a lovely lot(#58). It is the only one with a bay view. The park employees are so nice and helpful. A lot of shady sites with plenty of room. Electric/ water and wifi. Mount Battie should not be missed. Beautiful vistas! Camden is a neat little town with a very nice park by the library.

Sometimes... the fog can block the view from the top of the mountain on occasion and the view of the islands AND the foliage at this time of year can also be spectacular. I've been there before: ran to the top of MT. Battie on Sunday morning. No one there. the view was MISTICAL (just fog), but a more peaceful... More

Great location with access to hiking trails and auto road to Mount Battie within the campground. Restrooms kept very clean and private showers that always had hot water when we went each morning. Weather was perfect and had... More

I pulled up here and was excited about the opportunities. I asked the ranger if they had a scenic sites, something up on the mountain with a view, and the response was "We don't have anything like that here" What they do have are almost 100 campsites on several loops with centralized showers and bathrooms. I don't know that any... More

The hike up to the ocean view is absolutely well worth it (also accessible via car), providing uninstructed views of charming Camden below, the harbor/bay, and beyond to Cadillac Mountain in Acadia National Park. The hike is an easy 45 minutes up, so plan accordingly and give yourself enough time to hike (or drive) and get back down before the... More

Camden Hills State Park is part if the Maine state parks and campgrounds system. This is my favorite. The campsites themselves are average in size, but feel cramped to me because I like a more rustic setting. There's good space between the sites with paths leading to the bathroom and showers building in the center. We stay in one of... More

It's not Bar Harbor, Mt Acadia or Kadahdin but it's accessible, affordable, friendly, and beautiful. Hike Mt. Megunticook for a good workout & great views then take gentle stroll through nearby Fernalds Neck Preserve for a view of Lake Megunticook and some mushroom foraging (if you time it right). Only drawback-level sites for RVs are limited--reserve or get there early!... More

The next time we are in Camden, Maine, we are staying here. Reasonable off season rates. Close to town yet still very much in the woods. Private wooded sites with water and electricity if needed. Oh and to mention some great family hikes with beautiful ocean vistas. There is also some Technical Rock Climbing here if your an experienced climber... More
