We stayed at the park for two days which allowed us to go up a few times at different times of the day. Each time it was a little different. Clear as a bell then when clouds were covering some of the islands.

While we cheated and drove to the top (we planned on hiking it but it was much too hot and muggy) it was still a great experience. The tower was under construction, but I'm glad to see them putting in the necessary repairs and work to make sure it stays a part of Mount Battie. The views are amazing; we... More

After an easy drive up Mt. Battie, we were treated to one of the most awesome views of Camden and the harbor below. Saw many people hiking to the top. There were also other trails in the state park plus campsites for staying overnight.

I was told to go here by a local and boy am I glad we did! The park has a beautiful view from the top with a picturesque view of the harbor - you can hike or drive, we drove. I can't remember the cost - I want to say it was maybe $12? That could be wrong though. We... More

This was our first time up to Mount Battie. The stone tower was under renovation so we were unable to go in it however the surrounding area has plenty of places for viewing and photo shots of Camden from above.

Mount Battie is a wonderful way to get a bird's eye view of Canden, Rockport and Penobscot Bay! Any day with a ceiling over 2000 feet and good visibility. Our favorite time of the year is Autumn. Easy access along the carriage road even for people that have trouble walking.

Competes with the view from Acadia National Park in Bar Harbor. The park is easy to find, north of Camden. The drive goes up to the lookout at the top. Well worth the $1 per person fee for non-residents.

If you are in Camden, you have to hike up/drive up and see this view! We drove, and it is an easy trip to the top to see the lovely harbor of Camden!

Beautiful views from which Edna St. Vincent Millay found some inspiration. Hike up is great! Views are better! Historical tower on top, too. We could see Cadillac Mountain from up there! Cool!
