Camden ME from Mt Battie in Camden Hills State ParkCamden Hills State Park is a 5,500 acre park that offers 30 miles of hiking and trails. It offers sweeping views of Camden, Penobscot Bat, and surrounding islands, and on a clear day you might even catch a glimpse of Cadillac Mountain. And you won’t be too far from civilization as the small New England town of Camden is just a few minutes to the south.

You can even take a ferry to the islands on the Maine State Ferry Service.

And one thing that I always appreciate in a campground – hot showers and modern restrooms – are both available in the park. Mount Battie, Camden Hills State Park 3
