It is a quick drive to the top, but the view is amazing!!! When we were there it was a bit foggy in the harbor, but the view was still amazing. You can see for miles. It was exciting to see from above the town of Camden that we had just driven through. It gave you a real perspective on... More

Weather permitting, do not pass up the opportunity to drive up Mount Battie for a breathtaking view of Camden and Penobscot Bay. If the tower is open, the view of the surrounding area is even better. This is a great place to bring visitors who may not be up to an extended walk

Walk to the Summit tower if you're able to as its not a long hike- we drove into the park 20minutes before sunset and were short on time. We paid $12 for being 2 out-of-state visitors and enjoyed an evening sunset. Nice spot to take in the view of Camden harbor and Cadillac and Scoodic mountaintops at Acadia as well... More

Ran up the road to the top. Amazing view and great run if you like hills (but costs $6.00). But I also drove it and that is worth it for the view.

Can't think of a reason to NOT stop here. Gorgeous views. If you can climb up a dozen stairs you will see an even better view.

Friends recommended a stop at Mt. Battie, so even tho' it was overcast with a slight drizzle, we entered Camden Hills State Park and took the auto trail to see the view at the top. Even under these weather conditions, we were treated to a pretty neat view of Camden and its surrounding coastline. The tower itself was being repaired,... More

Spectacular views! A perfect place to view all of Camden and the Penobscot Bay. Take a picnic or a bottle of wine and some cheese for an enjoyable break with a breathtaking view!

Worth the time for the view! It was my idea and the others I was driving were skeptical to leave Camden for the trip up, but once we were there it was worth it!!!
