We didn't plan on stopping here but we saw it on our way somewhere else. We didn't get spend a long time but it was beautiful. There were deer everywhere. We saw a moose and beaver in the water. Worth the couple of dollars to get in.

If a peaceful, quiet walk through a spectacular forest is what you seek, come to the quiet solitude of Lily State Park. Well kept trails prevent you from damaging vegetation, along the paths are amazing examples of life in the forest - from birth to death to decay and mushrooms and other invasive species. If you love plants, you'll be... More

We don't camp, but this would be a nice place if we did. We just went to explore & have a picnic. We found a lovely location next to the lake with trails through the woods. A doe & her fawn entertained us. Very relaxing.

The lakefront campsites were gorgeous. Drive or bike along the park roads and see Moose traveling the same routes. The loons and their beautiful melody are mesmerizing while sitting around the campfire or bedding down. Another must do.

Loved it here! Had a gorgeous campsite on the water. Very quiet and relaxing. Got in an early evening kayak when we arrived but it was too windy to be on the water for the rest of the trip. That's ok - plenty of places to hike in the region and the weather was perfect for it. Terrific staff at... More

We went around 2pm to kill sometime before dusk so we could look for moose. We packed a lunch and the kids loved feeding the ducks, playing in the water and on the playground, and walking the trails. Would go back if in the area. View is beautiful.
