This is a great campsite -- especially if you can get on the water. We spent four nights. We had a side-by-side waterfront site next to friends. It was like having our own private beach. We kayaked and canoed and played in the water. We also took a day trip to hike Mt. Kineo and two in our group took... More

My companion and I camped for 1 week at Lily Bay State Park. Our campsite was located in Rowell Cove on the inside. The sites are big and shaded, but it is open woods. There are marshes and bogs throughout the park. Near the showers, we saw deer there multiple times. There are plenty of outhouses and water faucets in... More

Every year we enjoy going up to Lily Bay State Park for three or four nights. It's somewhat primitive camping. There's not a lot of choo-choo rides, movie nights or activities. It's just the lake, the woods and your tent. Looking to get blitzed with your old college friends? Forget about Lily Bay, they strictly enforce quiet hours and will... More

We came here to get some good views of the lake and to do some hiking. Once we were in (4.50$ per adult) we weren't sure what to do. The hiking trail is only a mile or two long and it winds through campsites, not near the lake. If it were nicer out this May have been a good place... More

We visit Lily Bay State Park every year and it's one of our favorites. The campsites are clean and mostly flat - great for tents or campers. The beach area is a little small, but we've never had an issue finding a spot to set up for the day. There's also a small playground. We've never used the boat launch,... More

We enjoyed our stay here and found the staff very friendly and helpful. Definitely not the place for anyone looking for lots of excitement, but if you want to get away from it all and spend some peaceful time on a beautiful lake, this is a great place.

Spent a day at the beach and boating on the lake. Park had a nice playground, shade and sun areas and some small hiking paths. Some wildlife was around as we got up close with a young deer.

Loved our stay at Lily Bay campground. We had wild deer walk right into our campsite while we sat at the picnic table. Everything is very clean and nicely organized. The beach is perfect for playing and swimming and we fished and paddle boarded on the boat landing side. A remarkable stay!
