Mount Battie Tower - Camden Hills State Park, Camden, Maine

The coast of Maine has quite the number of great locations for visitors to check out. When we were doing some scouting for Jeff Clow's upcoming Maine Lighthouse Photo Tour this past April, I took Jeff to Camden Hills State Park to see what he thought of it as a possible tour stop. The park is just north of the town of Camden and you get a great view from the top of Mount Battie of the surrounding area. Mt. Battie is quite small in comparison to other mountains, topping off at only 800 feet, but, since the surrounding area is so flat, you get great views of Camden Harbor as well as the Maine coastline. Also at the top of the mountain is this cool tower that looks like a turret from a castle. Definitely worth a stop if you are in the Camden area.
