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.

Drove by car to the top and took in the beautiful view of Camden Harbor and the town and surrounding area.

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. He doesn't check your ID to make sure. We get in for 4 bucks each. The view from the top is spectacular.... a... More

Just outside of Camden town proper, a nice drive and then an 'easy' walk to the lookout tower. Quite the view and the fall colors were beautiful.

This park has a bunch of nice short hikes and a very helpful ranger to direct people to the drivable, walkable and hikable portions. The castle on top is a cute place for photos and, even on cloudy days, a beautiful view of the coast and surrounding hills and islands.

As a local, I hike this mountain almost everyday. The views are outstanding at all times of day and the top is fun for all ages. The World War 1 tower is a treat for people to climb, and has been recently been renovated to improve the steps and handrail. The hike itself is fun with a short trek through... More
