Camden, Maine is a lovely coastal New England town nestled twenty minutes south of Belfast, an hour east of Augusta, and about two hours north of Portland. This town is home to a quaint downtown area, the Marshall Point Lighthouse, and of course, Camden Hills State Park.
Between 1935 and 1947, the CCC and the National Parks service teamed up to build this 1,500-acre park which eventually grew to be the 5,500-acre park that we know today. They worked together to carve out walking paths and build toll houses and picnic pavilions along the natural landscape. The park envelopes Mt. Battie, which is classically known as one of the most beautiful viewpoints in the state. It also borders the Penobscot Bay and has a great view of the surrounding islands, all of which are accessible to the public and easy to reach by boat.
If you plan to do a bit of RV camping at Camden Hills State Park, you’re in for a treat. This park is full of scenic beauty, diverse hiking trails, and native wildlife. Rent an RV in Knox County and begin enjoying the natural wonders of Maine.
The views from the mountain are some of the biggest draws to Camden Hills State Park. Roughly 26 miles of hiking trails are accessible year-round which Camden Hills State Park campers can use to explore these sights. When the snow builds up, the tractors are out there plowing them smooth for you. Always use caution when hiking, but especially when the trails are snow-covered. Each path ranges in difficulty from easy to strenuous and offers stunning views, from the tops of mountain peaks down to ocean and forest.
RV campers who enjoy hunting can bring their hunting gear with them to the park. With the correct licenses, visitors can hunt and trap in Maine state parks with permission from the bureau. Make sure to follow all laws and safety regulations, and exercise good common sense.
Birders aren’t going to find too many rare birds in the Camden Hills, but there's a good variety of common fowl to view. A diverse selection of hawks can be found roaming the skies, as well as woodpeckers, sapsuckers, and turkey vultures. Grab your binoculars from your motorhome camper, start walking the trails, and see what shows up!
There are 107 campsites for Camden Hills State Park RV campers to choose from. Each comes with both water and 30- and 50-amp electrical hookups. There aren’t any sewer hookups, but the park offers flush toilets, dump stations, and hot showers to its guests. Campsites vary in sizes, and the maximum RV length is 40 feet.
At Camden Hills, you’ll be able to stay connected to friends and family much easier with the good cell phone reception. Most major carriers have service in Camden, and the park itself has Wi-Fi. If you plan to book your RV camping site ahead of time, you can do so up to 24 hours before your stay for up to 14 consecutive days at a time.
Southern Maine is full of fun, quaint New England towns, each with their own unique spirit. While you’re in Camden, you must check out Penobscot Bay. Penobscot Bay is 37 miles of Maine coastline that's great for family fun. Take the kids to the beach and build sand castles, or catch some sun as the waves lap the nearby shore. There are plenty of museums, local shops, restaurants and activities to make a full, memorable evening out of your time there.
Just south of Camden Hills State Park is the town of Rockland. If you're a fan of museums and lighthouses (and Maine is full of both), make sure to visit the Maine Lighthouse Museum. Learn all about the history of Maine’s 65 lighthouses and the harrowing and heroic stories that accompany some of them.
Lastly, you can’t visit Maine without visiting Portland. The cultural hub of the state and an ever up-and-coming city, Portland is famous for its exciting Old Port. The centralized and easily walkable downtown of the city is full of bars and restaurants, nickelodeons and theater stages. Culture runs through this city’s veins and you can see it in the people you’ll meet.
Once your trip has come to its natural end, fill up your tank at any of the gas stations in Camden or nearby Rockland. Grab some food at any of the many restaurants within a ten-mile radius. I-95 is just a few miles away and it will take you south into the rest of New England.
