Walked through Camden then went to Mount Battie. Very impressive views. Went in October- the leaves were at peak. Great experience!

“Fantastic view”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 9, 2013

Mt Battie is worth the hike if athletic enough or drive if not athletic enough to the top. The view is fabulous. The view overlooks Camden and you can even see Rockport and Rockland off in the distance. We can't wait to return to Camden in the warmer months

“Nice View of Camden”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 13, 2013

We were lucky and got a sunny day on Saturday. Paid $4.50 each for admission. Drove to the top of the hill and walked to the old tower. It was a really nice view both toward and away from the sea. Well worth the visit.

This is a "must see" if you are in the Camden area. You enter through Camden Hills State Park and take a short drive to the top of the mountain. The view of the Maine coastline is truly breathtaking. You only have to walk a short distance from the parking lot to the observation area. There is also a watch tower you can climb for an even better view. I got some great panoramic pictures.
