I believe it was $5 per person to get in but I'm really glad we went. The views from the top were really beautiful and you get a bird's eye view of Camden which is really cool. There's also a small lookout tower to climb...More

Mount Battie is a Must when you visit the Maine Coast. Unbelievable views on the Camden shoreline...... We love it. it is just a short drive on the steep mountain road from the Camden Hills State Park entrance. You will be overwhelmed.

Even if you don't hike or can't, a drive to the top of the mount is essential for the area. The view is wowing. The hikes are lovely and quiet, too, with occasional ocean views.

A stunning view of Camden!! On a clear day you can see the coast almost all the way to NH it seems. The WWI monument has a new railing so the top is open again.

Beautiful views from the top of Camden. Not much walking to do if you are handicapped. There are many hiking trails if you want to do that too.

We weren’t quite prepared to use our hands and knees to scale some (non-steep) rock face but it is totally worth it when you get to the top!

Being unable to hike this mountain, the auto route was perfect! At the top the view is spectacular. Ocean, mountains and view of the town of Camden. At the top, there is a wonderful panoramic map showing the bay, surrounding islands and light houses. I...More

Sounds like you came up the Mt Battie Trail from town. It is a steep trail and occasionally folks are afraid to walk back down. Next time I'd suggest using the main entrance just a little north of Camden on Route 1. There you'll have...More

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
