Camden Hills State Park signature location is the scenic vista high atop Mt. Battie where sweeping views of Camden, Penobscot Bay, and surrounding islands await. On a clear day, visitors can see Cadillac Mountain at Acadia National Park. Mt. Megunticook, the highest of the Camden Hills - and highest peak on the mainland - is a moderate climb by foot trail.

The park is located a few minutes north of Camden, a quintessential New England town featuring shops that are within walking distance to the working harbor. Harbor cruises, whale and puffin watches are available daily.

Summer nights spent under the stars is a recipe for family fun. Campers who stay at the park's campground enjoy the comfort stations that are equipped with hot showers. A popular fall activity for hundreds of visiting leaf peepers is to drive up the Mt. Battie Auto Road and view the surrounding hillside of fall foliage color.

Visitor Comments, Memories and Reviews
August 29 Great park but campground is not good by WolfandJan_M
park review stars; one to five The location of this park is great and the many challenging hiking trails are wonderful. But the campground is overall the worst state park campground weve stayed in for years. It feels old and poorly maintained. The water has been under a must boil alert for months but I couldnt find a mention of that on their site. Half of the s showers are out of service. The rest are dirty and dont allow you to regulate the temperature. Our camping site is very tight and completely unlevel. We would not recommend this campground.
August 22 A romantic view by mystified
park review stars; one to five There is nothing i love more than to look over the harbor. Camden offers a wonderful dining experience and quaint harbor viewing. Mount Battie has spectacular views, great shopping, wonderful art museums and the air or romance all around.
November 21 Great view from the top of Mt. Battie
