    Camden, Maine

    Camden Hills State Park Campground, nestled near Camden, Maine, is a gem for those who love a mix of coastal beauty and forested tranquility. This campground is perfectly situated for easy access to the charming town of Camden, known for its quaint shops and delicious eateries. If you're into Thai food, Long Grain is a must-visit, but make sure to snag a reservation.

    The campground itself offers a variety of accommodations, from tent sites to RV spots, and even some glamping options. If you're rolling in with a big rig, the field sites at the front are your best bet. For tent campers, the higher you go, the more forested and secluded it gets. Site #65 is a favorite for its sunny spot, perfect for solar panels, and it's also great for dog owners due to its enclosed feel.

    Hiking enthusiasts will love the trails that start right from the campground. A trek up Mt. Battie is highly recommended for its stunning views of Penobscot Bay. If hiking isn't your thing, you can drive up Mt. Battie Road, which is RV-friendly and offers parking at the top.

    The campground features amenities like hot showers, though some campers have noted they could use a bit of a facelift. There's also a dump station, potable water, and electric hookups available. WiFi is offered for a small fee, but cell service can be spotty, so plan accordingly.

    For those looking to explore beyond the campground, nearby towns like Belfast and Boothbay Harbor are worth a visit. Whether you're here for the hiking, the views, or just to relax, Camden Hills State Park Campground has something to offer.

    Penobscot Bay is the deepest body of water in the Gulf of Maine…and I live at its shores with my husband Steven, father Zaven, a flock of sheep and goats, three hives of honey bees, extensive gardens and lots of space to make art and good food.

    Together we run a family campground that was established in 1965 and steward the land…we provide a place for people to come and relax, wander through the organic gardens, explore the beach and re-connect with themselves and others. We’re proud to be part of the working waterfront of Maine where recreation, fishing and shipping ply the same waters and provide a sense of purpose for all sorts of people.
