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.

Camden Hills State Park reviews
Visited here to spend some time hiking the Mount Battie trail to the top. Well marked trail with varied footing (logs, stones, dirt, etc.). Beautiful scenery along the way.

We almost passed by the turn off leaving town. It was definitely worth a detour up this mountain to see the panoramic view.

This campground was a pleasant surprise. It was level and good for my tent. The shower facilities wasn't perfectly clean, but was acceptable and fine for me. I spent the night and moved on in the morning, but it looked like it would have been fun to stay longer. Many other campers were getting ready for a fun day judging from the kayaks and other fun outdoor stuff I saw.
Camden Hills State Park is always a wonderful visit! The scenery is beautiful, and one hike is never the same as the next. There is a good mix of different level trails, so Camden Hills State Park is a great place for beginners as well as those that want a challenge on their hike. There is also a campground and overnight hiking for those that want a good weekend camping or hiking trip.
