With wide-open views of Penobscot Bay and surrounding small islands, Camden Hills State Park offers 50 km (30 mi) of hiking trails and 112 camping spots. You can take up horseback riding or mountain biking, or try cross-country skiing, snowmobiling, and snowshoeing during the cold months. The varied topography, ranging from dark dense forests to cliff overlooks and rocky shorelines to rolling misty hills, make it a good spot for photography. Within the park, there are also two small mountains to climb--the 240 m (800 ft) high Mount Battie and the 422 m (1,385 ft) high Mount Megunticook.

  • After searching for a good foliage trip to experience with our company from New York we decided Camden hills was the place to do it. We started off driving up the road to the top of mount battie. The ...  read more »
  • We hiked several of the trails- there are many to choose from. All are well maintained. The views at the top were spectacular. 
  • I grew up in Gardiner, Maine, in the 50s and 60s, but we never visited Camden Hills. Today was my first time. Absolutely gorgeous fall day. We decided to climb the Megunticook Trail which reaches an e...  read more »
  • Very nice hike to the top of Mount Batti, although fog rolled in by the time we made it up. The trail is marked reasonably well, though there were two spots where it wasn't immediately obvious which way to go. You can park outside the gate, but then have to follow the road to the trailhead. Better to drive past the gate and park right at the trailhead.
  • An amazing park, beautiful hike, awe-inspiring view of Camden from the top, but $6 per person to get in? Even if everyone is in the same car?! Come on, Maine. I guess state parks are only for rich tourists now. If you are working-class and like nature, then go somewhere else where your money goes further.
  • One of the most beautiful places to hike and explore the timeless Maine wilderness. Try the Mt. Battie or Maiden's Cliff hikes for gorgeous views of the surrounding vistas. A must see for anyone visiting Camden!
  • We camped here in July for the first time (from out of state) and loved it! Very clean bathrooms and nice trails all around.
  • Beautiful trails lead to gorgeous mount Battie. The view on the top is breathtaking. The trail map provided by the park is very confusing though, hope they make better maps.
