This is a must do when you visit Camden, ME. The view at the top of this mountain is just gorgeous! Camden, ME, with the church spires and the boats, is just breathtaking.

My husband and I started the climb and we are both quite fit but we reached a point where it was rock climbing more than a trail and turned back. Enjoyed the part we did.

Be sure to visit when in the Camden area. Great views from here to the Camden Harbor. You can climb up the monument there for even better views. Best on a sunny day.

Incredible view of Camden, the harbor, the bay and the islands. Commanding Vista that you do not want to miss. Fall colors on the trees really made this experience breathtaking.

You do have to pay the State Park fee but it's not too much ($6/person, out of state) and I think worth the views you'll get. It's an easy drive up the mountain (or a really small hill for those of us form Colorado) and...More

Hi OttoFC71, Thank you for taking the time to offer your comments. Columbus Day weekend is our busiest time of the year! busier than the 4th or Labor Day. Even though it's heavily visited there is always ample parking at the summit.

First off, put Camden Hills State Park in your gps and then take the auto road. If you don't, you'll end up confused on a private drive. It is a beautiful view!

Yes, fireworks can be viewed from the summit of Mt. Battie. It's a different perspective, looking down rather than up. The fireworks usually are shot from a barge in the harbor - about 1.5 miles from the summit. We used to... More
