Very large campground with well-spaced sites. Most are separated by trees, so you are secluded from your neighbors. A few sites are closer together - good for those traveling together. There are 2 large loops and only 2 bath/shower houses. Check the map when making a reservation...some sites are pretty far away. The dump station is very easy to get to, which is a plus. There are several hiking trails, including a multi-use trail that was perfect for a wet day. Park staff was very nice and helpful. Campground is very close to town, but still feels secluded. We camped at Camden Hills State Park in a Travel Trailer.
River Ducks Ice Cream was delicious! They do a "state of they day." Be sure to check that...if it is the state you're from, you get free ice cream (1 per family). It is one block off Main St, right next to the footbridge; a great place to relax and enjoy the day!

Facilitywise not much is expected of a state park other than perhaps more spacing between sites. Camden Hills SP is typical. Yes, the interior roads could use a grading, but the condition is not worth deducting a point over.
What is worth the deduction is the outrageous price for a SP with basic W&E facilities. What are the operators thinking?
Lot spacing is spacious with covered/forested exposure. Site surface is dirt, featuring a fire ring and picnic table. We camped at Camden Hills State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

A beautiful state park just outside the city. We parked in the open area across from the office. This area is open without trees. These sites are all back-in, but long enough for our tow to be parked in front. They are gravel, spacious, and level with full hookups, 30/50 amp. The park's Wi-Fi was good; our Verizon MiFi also worked very well. There are other sites located within the trees that will serve all sizes of RVs. There are only about 6 sites in the trees that will work for a big rig, so make reservations early if you want one of these sites. Hosts are very friendly and helpful. Campfire wood is available and there is a recycling center near the dumpsters. There is also a dump site if needed. Note: the roadway to the dump site and upper camping is very rough. The auto-route road to Mt. Battie is the same road you use to enter the park. Stay to the right as you enter to register to camp. Park will close for the season on Oct. 19. We camped at Camden Hills State Park in a Motorhome.
Don't miss the Owl & Turtle Bookshop Café at 33 Bay View St. and the Cashmere Goat Knitting Shop at 20 Bay View St. in downtown Camden.

Enjoyed this park. The picnic area across Highway 1 is really nice too, and water front. The camping area is at the base of Mount Battie, with access to the top by road or hiking trail. The view is awesome! We stayed 3 nights. Our site (45) had water and electric only, though many sites have none. Our site was separated from others by trees and shrubs. It was rated as medium size, for up to 25' trailer, but would easily have accommodated a 30' with plenty of room for a tow vehicle to park. We camped at Camden Hills State Park in a Travel Trailer.
Several nearby quaint small towns with good restaurants and shopping.
The towns are crowded on weekends. About an hour to Acadia National park.

This CG, in Camden Hills SP is excellent if you like privacy. It is heavily treed and the sites widely spaced. There are few pull throughs and some of the back ins can be tight. There are places for big rigs in an adjoining field. Our site was not very level and I don't think they any full service sites. Those are the negatives. The positives: you are five miles from Camden, your entrance to the park is included in your fee, and one of the foodie places [ranked #3 in Camden], Mt Battie Takeout, is across the road from the park--walking distance. The place is private and beautiful with 30 miles of hiking trails. Reservations are taken 48 hrs in advance, otherwise it is first come, first served. We would definitely stay here again.

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.
