we caught a clear day and could see for miles and miles up and down the Maine coastline. Took our breath away.

After a day of rain, we were thrilled have a clear day for our stop at Mt. Battie in Camden Hills State Park. We drove to the top and had spectacular views below. As others have noted, enter Camden Hills State Park or you will...More

Be sure to visit when in the Camden area. Great views from here to the Camden Harbor. You can climb up the monument there for even better views. Best on a sunny day.

Incredible view of Camden, the harbor, the bay and the islands. Commanding Vista that you do not want to miss. Fall colors on the trees really made this experience breathtaking.

You do have to pay the State Park fee but it's not too much ($6/person, out of state) and I think worth the views you'll get. It's an easy drive up the mountain (or a really small hill for those of us form Colorado) and...More

Hi OttoFC71, Thank you for taking the time to offer your comments. Columbus Day weekend is our busiest time of the year! busier than the 4th or Labor Day. Even though it's heavily visited there is always ample parking at the summit.

First off, put Camden Hills State Park in your gps and then take the auto road. If you don't, you'll end up confused on a private drive. It is a beautiful view!

Even though it was raining it still was a great view of the coast and Camden Maine. Does require an entry fee to the state of Maine.

Drive, or hike up to the top of Mount Battie for the most spectacular views of Camden Harbor and the islands offshore Camden. Unbelievably beautiful! Plenty of places to hike or just sit and take in the splendor. Lots of parking.

4 of us had wine and cheese overlooking the bay and nearby Camden harbor. Place left us speechless. Beautiful. Don't think it's open early enough, but sunrise from here must be awesome.

In Camden Hills State Park. Do not try to get here just by entering "Mount Battie" into Google Maps. It will lead you astray. Enter through the park. Modest entry fees. Short drive to summit. Great view.

Yes, fireworks can be viewed from the summit of Mt. Battie. It's a different perspective, looking down rather than up. The fireworks usually are shot from a barge in the harbor - about 1.5 miles from the summit. We used to... More
