Camden Hills State Park

We set out Friday of the Labor Day weekend with no home for the night... but hoping for Camden Hill State Park. Arrive and the staff is very friendly and the lady finds us a spot for the night and promises to try and find us something the next day.
We setup then drive to the top of Mt Battie (800 ft) and get a great view of Camden and all the way to Acadia National Park and Cadillac Mt where we took similar pictures 2 days earlier (see arrow on photo). Drive through Camden but dont stop as it is very busy. This weekend is the Windjammer Festival which is basically a Tall Ships display with a whole bunch of entertainment over 3 days!
Back to the MH for a quick rest in the sun then go for a 1.75 hr hike up the top of Mt Megunticook (1,300) ft and back. This is basically a Grouse Grind hike straight up the side of the Mt (see pictures). The view up top is spectacular and worth the hike.
Have dinner then drive back up Mt Battie to watch fireworks in Camden Harbor for the festival. Just sitting up there at night watching the lights of the town and boats is great but add in 25 minutes of good fireworks and you have a fantastic end to a busy day!
Loving Maine! Good night!
