Surprised that the road to the top was open, due to milder-than-normal January weather, but we were glad it was, because the views from the top are amazing!

We brought a picnic lunch up to Mt. Battie and the view was lovely even in January. Restrooms were clean and the pamphlet given to us at the park entrance was helpful to get a sense of the history.

Worth the small donation required to get into the park. Leave your car in the parking area and take the short walk to the top of Mt. Battie where the views are breathtaking! The town of Camden is nestled below you and the ocean spreads out on the horizon. Truly breathtaking and a great way to enjoy the great outdoors... More

Enjoyed a lovely day visiting this part of Maine. Views are amazing! Lots of hikes and adventures. Took one hike down the mountain - very steep. I carefully made my way down, then I noticed a local - running down the mountain. For me, you would have to be a local to do that. I was literally on my bottom... More

Friendly park staff. We drove up and saw the beautiful views. Many hiking trails could certainly extend the visit.

The views from this place took me by surprise! We drove to the summit and couldn't believe how great the view was. Definitely worth going here, whether you hike up or drive up.

I've been here before. It is beautiful and sentimental place for me. My friend and I drove up over the Thanksgiving holiday. The nice man at the gate asks you if you are Maine residents. We are.
