A must when in the Camden area. Beautiful look outs to sit and watch the morning clear out in the harbor. Views are fabulous.

Mount Battie provided beautiful views and was not busy at all during the time I was there (early evening, August weeknight). I was camping in the Camden State Park, which is where Mount Battie is located, so I did not have to pay an additional fee to get in the park. However, I believe if you are not camping, you will need to pay the day-pass fee. Not sure, but check Camden Hills State Park website for more info.

Easy drive but also a nice walk. You really haven't seen Camden if you haven't seen it from the Mt Battie tower.

Visited Mount Battie while staying in the Camden Hills State Park. While hardy folks will hike up to the top, I elected to drive. Yes I know what you are saying. Anyway the trip was worthwhile with views 360 degrees around - Penobscot Bay, Camden and its harbour, as well as the mountains inland. If you are staying in the Park this trip is all included in the cost of your camping permit.

The view from Mount Battie gives you a wonderful perspective of the coast and harbors. Be sure not to miss a chance to do this on a clear day. There is a small charge for entry to the park.
