Great view

We took the road up to the top of Mount Battie and had a wonderful view of the surrounding area. If we'd had more time, it looked like a great place to hike.

If you are in the Camden area visiting it is imperative that you visit Camden Hills Park and climb or drive up to the top of Mount Battie for the best view of Camden harbor areas! It is a short drive with rewarding views and only costs $2 per senior out of towners.

We had no idea it was such a great place to go until a local couple we met at Francine's recommended it to us. You can hike the trails or drive right to the top. In August, you won't be by yourself at the top, but it's really a lovely view. After exploring the high views, we drove back down... More

So we did the lazy thing and drove to the top. And it is gorgeous up there. We actually stayed in the campground and did this after checking out. The entry fee was included if you stayed in the campground, but I don't believe it is very expensive, regardless. Also, the park rangers are extremely friendly and knowledgeable. And they... More

We were pressed for time so just drove up . The entrance fee , $6 per person was kind of steep ( haha ) for the time we spent there - but that's on us . The view is very worth it , amazing.

We drove out to the top of Mt. Battie and were blown away by the gorgeous views. We also hiked to Mt. Megunticook and although it was mildly challenging - it was worth every ounce of energy! We thought Mt. Battie was gorgeous and this view is out of this world - definitely worth the hike!

The hike took about hour to get to the top. The trail was well marked. It was a moderately strenuous hike for a middle aged slightly overweight woman. The sights were beautiful. This is something I would do again. This would be appropriate for kids 10 and older.

Views were beautiful. Nice sunny day. You could see all the islands and Penobscot Bay. You could see all the way to Cadillac mountain in Acadia national park.

While probably best suited to hikers this small mountain has great views even for those of us taking the auto road. $6 entry fee per person and well worth stopping by to take it all in.
