Hiking Hotspot: Camden Hills State Park in Camden, Maine

Views while hiking in Camden Hills State Park, Maine

Camden Hills State Park offers over 30 miles of scenic hiking trails. The park is located in beautiful Camden, Maine whose fitting slogan is “Where the Mountains Meet the Sea.” Camden is one of the 2 locations along the Atlantic Coast where the mountains meet the sea, which leads to some amazing scenery.

There are 20 great trails including 2 of my favorites: The Mt. Battie and Maiden Cliff Trails. Trails range from easy to hard. Whichever trail you decide to go with, you will be surrounded with fantastic views.

The Mt. Battie Trail is a very steep climb up to the summit (just under 800 feet), however, the views of Penobscot Bay and Camden Harbor are well worth the climb!

  2. Thanks for the comment. Camden Hills is one of the most beautiful hiking areas in the country. We hope to visit again soon!

  3. Camden Hills State park was a wonderful experience last summer and I look forward to revisiting it again this year. From the Handsome and polite Gate house attendant named Dave (yes I think he is cute lol) to the knowledgeable and helpful resident campground Staff(the one with the cat, sorry I forgot your name) it was a great family atmosphere where you could relax and wile away the day under the trees or across the street overlooking the bay. Their prices are very affordable and you don’t have to take a fistful of quarters to the shower in the morning(included). I like the miles of trails with scenic overlooks, and the close access to Camden village by bike or on foot. About a mile. Its not often I have liked state run facilities from my experience with other Campgrounds throughout the state (14 to be exact) But Camden Hills is a cut above the rest, from the neat and clean appearance of its facilities and employees to the wonderful landscaping done by an always active crew (rain or shine) it is a place to build fond memories. See You Summer of 2014 🙂
