Camden Hills State Park
Description   

Camden Hills State Park signature location is the scenic
vista high atop Mt. Battie where sweeping views of
Camden, Penobscot Bay, and surrounding islands await.

Acadia National Park. Mt. Megunticook, the highest of the

Summer nights spent under the stars is a recipe for family fun. Campers who stay at the park's campground enjoy
the comfort stations that are equipped with hot showers. A popular fall activity for hundreds of visiting leaf peepers is
to drive up the Mt. Battie Auto Road and view the surrounding hillside of fall foliage color.
