Camden Hills State Park is located in the Megunticook Mountain Range on the shore of Penobscot Bay. It is a few minutes north of Camden. Its most outstanding feature is the scenic vista atop Mount Battie, which makes it one of Maine’s most popular state parks.
In the 1930s, The National Park Service acquired nearly 5,000 acres of this range. In cooperation with the Civilian Conservation Corps, the Park Service built the Camden Hills Recreation Development Area in the late 1930s to 1940s. Since 1947, the Maine Bureau of Parks and Lands has administered Camden Hills State Park.The 5,500 acre park has 30 miles of hiking trails along the shore and in the Megunticook Mountain range, whose peaks rise from near sea level to a height of 1,380 feet.
We took a short hike through Camden Hills State Park along shoreline walk and were treated with some beautiful fall foliage.
