The. Park is a short drive from the town of Camden. We drive to the lookout for a great view of the town and harbor. There was a small fee for entering. A good was to start a visit to Camden.

We drove up to the gate and I expected to get the same lame info and lines as I get in Massachusetts but I was greeted warmly with plenty of info and a map along with a small history bit of information. The park was CLEAN, again not like the parks in MA. It was well worth the couple bucks for the pleasure of the enjoyment of the person at the gate.

Stunning views from the top of the park. Easy drive up , nice trails. Be sure to visit the lower park too. Same entry fee gets you in both. Lower has beautiful forests and ferns all the way to the ocean. Nice picnic areas with bbqs available.

The park had a good variety of hikes - both strenuous and moderate. Be careful as you go as some trail heads or options are not clearly marked and you can get turned around. The views were absolutely phenomenal from the mountain tops.

I hiked the Maiden Head and Scenic trails which are 3 miles our Rt. 72 from downtown. I also hike up to the top of Mt. Battie. It is fun to take a picture of the harbor with Mt. Battie behind and then hike to the top and take the reverse. Don't miss it. You can drive if hiking is not your thing.
