Camden Hills State Park is located 2 miles north of Camden, Maine, on Route 1, making it a great location for those looking to hike as well as head into Camden and other nearby towns. The campground has 107 sites ranging in size to serve a small pop-up or tent to sites large enough for a camper larger than 35 feet in length. Forty four of the sites are equipped with water and electric hookups, and the remaining have no hookups. While the majority of sites require a reservation, 22 of the sites are first-come, first-served only. There is one site that is ADA-accessible.

The sites are mostly level and generally feature a gravel/dirt surface. Each site has a picnic table and fire ring. There are flush toilets, running water, and showers available. Water spickets can also be found throughout the campground. There is a small playground as well as an RV dump station. Firewood is sold near the entrance of the park for $7 per bundle. Cost for a site without hookups is $25/night for Maine residents ($35 out of state), and a site with water and electric hookups is $35/night ($45 out of state). While camping is available year round, camping in the winter is offered only at a rustic shelter, and no water is available. Reservations in the winter must be made by calling 207.236.0849. There is also a group picnic shelter available by reservation.

There are 2 very old lean-to shelters that are first come first served near Bald Rock. The other winter option is the rebuilt cabin that replaced the old warming hut when there was a ski area here. It has 6 bunks, a wood stove and picnic tables. Reservations are made by mail starting January 1. It can be accessed by either the main entrance or the back way in off Youngtown Road up the multi use trail. Check out the park with this link and there's a link to the trail map there.
