Camden Hills State Park
Camden Hills State Park is open year-round, with a variety of activities available across its 5,500 acres, from relatively low-exertion (bird-watching, picnicking) to downright athletic (cross-country skiing, off-road biking). Designated campgrounds are equipped with basic amenities, but the rest is pure nature. Towering over the quaint town of Camden, the park has 30 miles of hiking trails. At the top of Mount Battie, there are unobstructed views of Penobscot Bay and the towns and islands below; on a clear day it is possible to see as far as Cadillac Mountain at Acadia National Park.
