OUTDOOR ACTIVITIES

 HIKING

Mount Battie – Located in Camden Hills State Park. Mount Battie is one of the peaks of the Camden Hills that loom above the harbor at Camden Maine. These mountains rival those on Mount Desert Island in height and grandeur, making them among the most impressive along North America’s eastern coastline. 

 

Megunticook Lake – Megunticook Lake is located at the base of the Camden Hills in Camden. At the eastern end of the lake, just three miles from the harbor and the ocean is Barrett’s Cove Beach, a beautiful spot for swimming and picnicking that is rarely crowded.

 

Camden Harbor – Where the mountains meet the sea. That’s often used to describe Camden and it’s true. Camden Harbor may be the prettiest harbor in all the US, perhaps the world. Mount Battie forms the backdrop for this stunning harbor, providing refuge from Nor’Westerlies, as well as some of the most accessible hiking boaters will find anywhere.
