Beautiful campground with all hookups except sewer. Nice and clean bathrooms. No laundry. Large park mostly heavily treed. also a large open meadow for RVs. Big rigs welcome. Staff and campers very friendly. Lots of hiking trails.No TV. Excellent Wi-Fi and cell phone coverage. 30 miles of hiking trails. Camden is a lovely old historic town and fun to visit. We camped at Camden Hills State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We have been to this state park many times over the years. In the fall after labor day it is first come for sites and the rates drop. There are over 100 sites here and about 45 of them have water and electricity. You can camp in the field looking at the bay or in the woods. Restrooms are clean and there are showers. Mt road to the top of Mt. Battie which overlooks the quaint town of Camden (one of the cutest towns in Maine). Hiking trails lead out from the campground and to the picnic area across the street. We paid close to $27 for an out of state in the off season for water and electric. They had Wi-Fi here as part of the cost. We always stop at the LL Bean parking lot in Freeport for our first and last night in Maine and if we come up the coast Camden State Park for our second night. On the way a stop at the Maine State Prison Store, Thomaston, ME is a must with all their outstanding woodworking. Looking for RV parking in Camden is difficult but the road across from the library has parking on the right large enough for RVs. Just a few more hours north is Acadia National Park. We camped at Camden Hills State Park in a Motorhome.

Great campground to access Camden! We reserved campsite 60 based on the reviews here. We moved after one night to another site. Site 60 was a little secluded, wooded and with too many mosquitoes. To me, the best sites are in the open field because there are few mosquitoes there! Bathrooms are clean and new. Do not count on any Wi-Fi connection. It does not work well. I recommend the Mariner's restaurant on main street Camdem. We camped at Camden Hills State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Nice state park. Limited big rigs sites available. Big rigs need to be in the field area which has fairly large sites that are open. Rangers are nice to work with. Bathroom and shower rooms are clean, but maybe a little dated. No laundry facilities. Mount Battie and many hiking trails available in the park including an area located on the water across the road from the main park. Nice food take out just outside the park. It is about a 5 minute drive to Camden. Would definitely stay here again. We camped at Camden Hills State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed here four nights. Great hiking right from the camp or a short drive. Great view of the bay from a road up the hill within the camp. Friendly staff. The sites are not level, so bring lots of leveling blocks. We camped at Camden Hills State Park in a Motorhome.

A great location. Extremely helpful and friendly staff in the park office. Good Wi-Fi connection (not something we expected in a state park). Very clean bathrooms and showers. A few of the sites are layer out a bit oddly and are not particularly level. The road to the dump station needs repaving (lots of potholes and crumbling pavement). Loved our stay her and will definitely return. We camped at Camden Hills State Park in a Motorhome.

Location is excellent close to Route 1, a short drive up Mount Battie for a great view and hiking, or into the charming town of Camden. Sites are mostly set in the woods though some are closer to the road. Our first site assigned was impossible to level, so we asked to switch and the staff was accommodating. Second one not much better but we made it work. Got a few TV stations on our antenna. Cinder block bathrooms had modern corian long sinks. Unisex showers were separate. It's a nice park, very popular. Rate was $35, as shown includes tax and a $2 reservation fee. Would stay here again. We camped at Camden Hills State Park in a Motorhome.

This is a beautiful park. There is a mountain with a car road that you can drive up to see the ocean and islands. There is a portion of the camp right on the ocean, but no sites there. There are nice big sites in the front in a field and plenty of wooded sites. The only drawback to this place is that the manager is a stickler about anything that you might not be doing quite right. But, definitely a park to visit! We camped at Camden Hills State Park in a Motorhome.

Great location, close to town. Nice park personnel. Campsites dirt or grass sites. Most well shaded. Bathhouses clean but stark. Great hiking with a short really scenic drive up the mountain. We camped at Camden Hills State Park in a Motorhome.

Second time at this park, same beloved site #,called the "honeymoon suite"...as it is all by itself with its own driveway, though can be very annoying as other campers would walk their dogs down the drive and not clean up after them. Big roomy site, with great water pressure. 50 amp not available at the park, but with the cool temps, it was not an issue. Only bad thing about the site is the very busy road noise from Route 1 very close by through the woods. Had good and fast free WI-FI connect. Bathrooms always clean, and the push button showers did not bother me, as I loved the individual unisex bathrooms with locking doors. What is left of the pavement is crumbling through the middle of the park, but the gravel roads are in good condition. Great to walk across the street to the picnic park and watch the sunrise on the rocky coast. We camped at Camden Hills State Park in a Motorhome.

Electric & Water. Hot showers. Very clean restrooms. Not all sites level, we had difficulty in 24' class B. Suggest pressure wash clean inside shower rooms to remove build-up on walls and floors. Overall wonderful stay. Would return. We camped at Camden Hills State Park in a Motorhome.

Beautiful state park with both hiking trails and a road to the top of Mount Battey, where the views of Penobscott Bay are spectacular! Our site, although treed (there are some field sites) was roomy for both our rig and car. A great location for touring the Camden, Rockland and surrounding areas of the central Maine coast. We will stay here again when we're back in the Camden area. We camped at Camden Hills State Park in a Motorhome.

Camden is my home town and loved camping there. It is adjacent to the Mount Battle access road and the view is wonderful. We camped at Camden Hills State Park in a Tent.

This is a nice park but the bathrooms are very grubby. I don't usually use the restrooms so I let my wife give me her two cents. As far as the park, it's very nice, excellent access for all the sites and if you are a big rig you can stay out front in a nice grass area. WiFi is fast and strong, we got two channels very good on our Wingman. Phone service might be a little weak depending on your service. The price reflects fall rates, we stayed here four days. We camped at Camden Hills State Park in a Motorhome.
