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.
