One of the great hiking and camping locations on the mid-coast of Maine. The view from the top of Mount Battie is breathtaking.

Main attraction in the area. Bit like Acadia but without the crowds. Great for water sports and hiking.

Love the ocean but ready to stretch your legs and do some hiking? Camden Hills State Park is a wonderful area to explore. You will be blown away by the views of Penobscot Bay from the top of Mt. Battie (and, yes, if you feel so inclined you can also drive to the top)...

On foot or in your car, easy access to one of the best views of Penobscot Bay. Well-maintained state park can keep you entertained for the day or for the full length of your trip.

Drive to the top (or walk if energetic) and view Camden Harbor and local islands. Climb the tower for even a better view!

The view of Camden from the hill is amazing. Just after a short hike, you'll see the bay area and the nearby islands. There are several ways to get in the park, and you can avoid the fee if you are using the ones in downtown.

Excellent hiking or drive up to the top of the Camden Hills. Fantastic overlook of Penobscot Bay and Camden Harbor from the top. Blueberries on the trail on the way up in season!

A day hiking, picnicking, swimming or climbing is the true Maine. The view from the top of Mt. Battie is awesome! Climb up the Keep.You can see the entire bay and shore line.
