We drove up the auto road to the top of Mount Battie. On a very hot day in Camden, this was a refreshing quick trip to get a nice view of Camden and Penobscot Bay. There are two overlooks, with great views of the coastline all the way to Acadia National Park (an hour away by car).

This hike was uphill and interesting. Kids of all ages were able to hike to the peak. The views were amazing. We hikes in foggy weather and it cleared for an amazing view by the time we reached the top. Pack lunch!

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!
