With wide-open views of Penobscot Bay and surrounding small islands, Camden Hills State Park offers 50 km (30 mi) of hiking trails and 112 camping spots. You can take up horseback riding or mountain biking, or try cross-country skiing, snowmobiling, and snowshoeing during the cold months. The varied topography, ranging from dark dense forests to cliff overlooks and rocky shorelines to rolling misty hills, make it a good spot for photography. Within the park, there are also two small mountains to climb--the 240 m (800 ft) high Mount Battie and the 422 m (1,385 ft) high Mount Megunticook.

Beautiful hike up into the hills and the views of the harbor were stunning. Easy hike and can be done with family if you go slow. Sneakers a must but we had out hiking boots and we were happy we did. Make sure to bring plenty of water.
The state park itself is really nice. The view from the mountain is gorgeous and you're able to drive right up to it. The campgrounds are nice enough too. My only complaint is it is a little pricey for not having sewer hookups. Most things are pricey around here though. They offer shower facilities, restrooms, and a dump station.
