This is a large state park with a good number of hiking trails, but it's an easy drive up to the parking lot on Mount Battie, where there are great views of Camden Harbor and Penobscot Bay below.
Right off the parking lot is a World War I memorial, a 26-foot high stone tower, which children love to go up. There are more views of Penobscot Bay from there and in front of it.
On one visit, we also chose to hike up Mount Megunticook (elevation over 1,300 feet), which took about 1-1/2 hours and was steep at times. The views from there were also magnificent!
I have gone here in Summer and Fall, and both times were terrific, although the latter time featured the colorful foliage!
The cost to enter the park is $4 for Maine residents and $6 for non-residents, with children and seniors getting in for less.
