We drove up to the top but you can walk, not far. The view from the top is truly amazing you can see right across Penobscot Bay to other islands as well as the delightful town of Camden.

A perfect spot to spend the night after climbing Mount Battie and spending some time in Camden. My teens found tons of activities to keep them busy.

Hiking mid-week in November will almost always assure a quiet hike! We only saw one other hiker all day! The park entrance ranger was very helpful. Views were spectacular and the hike itself was moderate without too many extreme trail sections to scramble. 6+ miles...More

We stopped at Camden Hill State Park to break up the drive, but had an excellent hike. After driving up Mt. Battie and enjoying the view, we walked to the Ocean Lookout and to Adam's Lookout. It's a good trail to an impressive viewpoint.

We were fortunate to visit here last week during the peak of Fall coloring. The gorgeous drive up Mount Battie and the 360 degree view from the top will remain one of our greatest memories.

if in Camden and wanting to get away from the ocean (and the lobsters), take a hike in beautiful Camden Hills State Park (don't just drive up to the lookout in your car, but walk or hike one of the many trails)

View to Bar Harbor on a clear day. At least to the peaks and islands of Northern Maine. Spectacular views abound. Great for hiking and walking.
