Mount Battie is situation right over the town so you get an extremely photogenic shot. I'm perplexed why it cost us $10 to drive up there. Its 1300 feet up. Just hike it. The terrain isn't very challenging. The only reason we drove it was because of a time constraint.

Whiteface was $10 to drive up but it was 3 or 4 times larger and you could see Montreal. You can't even see the next town from the top of this hill.

The road to Mount Battie rewards you with great views of Penobscot Bay and Camden. Climb the tower for even better views (can see Mt. Desert and Blue Hill which the trees below block). There is good signage to tell you what you are looking at. Go in the afternoon if you want good photos as the view is to the east. I overheard one person say the view was even better than from the top of Cadillac Mountain in Acadia National Park.

Beautiful state park with a mountaintop view of the ocean and local area. Just check the weather and try to avoid peak traffic times. Looks like the hiking would be good.

if you are in Camden, please don't miss going to the top of Mount Battie. The views of Camden, the bay and all the islands is just breathtaking. On a clear day, you can see forever. There is a mural to tell you the names of all the little islands and the big ones too.

This is at Camden Hills State Park. Do yourself a favor and go here when the weather is nice. You can drive to the top or if you are adventures and able, climb up! The views from the well maintained top are outstanding. There is a beautiful stone tower you can climb. We went during an amazing sunset and a fantastic full moon rise. Plenty of space to picnic or relax. Take the time to relax and enjoy the view. Expect to take tons of photos!
