If you can go before or after the August crowds, you will experience the most beautiful, peaceful area in ME (except for Kimball Pond). Right on the magnificent Moosehead Lake, too awesome to describe. We camp here during the Annual International Seaplane Flyin in early September. The salmon and lake trout are starting their last feed before winter. Cool temperatures,... More

I was surprised by the size, quite honestly. However, there are two camping areas and two boat launch areas. Judging by the amount of cars with Maine plates, I'd say it must be a good place to begin and end a boating excursion. I was pleased pleased pleased to see handicap-accessible bathrooms in the woods! There is a 2-mile trail... More

We only planned on spending a short time here but we lingered because it was so beautiful. Lovely beach areas, with great views of Moosehead Lake create the perfect spot for some of the best campsites I've ever seen. There are excellent picnic areas. We are planning to spend more time here in the future!

My wife and I decided to take a day trip and a picnic so we thought we would try out this venue as we had heard very good things about the campground at the state park. We also brought our 14 year old Cocker Spaniel and were able to walk her on a leash. In town the day was hot... More

This is quite a large state park with numerous camping sites and several trails. We love to kayak around some of the adjacent islands, but beware of being on Moosehead Lake in a small craft when the weater deteriorates....trust me on this one. Overall, this is an excellent state park.

I spent 5 nights at Lily Bay State Park. It was very clean, people kept the quiet time and I loved every minute - even the cold and rain at night. Everyone was friendly (especially the Rangers) and I recommend camping there. Lots of kids (respectful) and looked like everyone else was enjoying themselves. I'm sure to come back, maybe... More

Only spent a couple of hours here. Short but nice hiking trail. The park was clean and well maintained. The park are seemed geared more to camping.

Stayed one night here with my girlfriend. We got a tent site right on the lake. Some of the sites are a bit close together but the proximity to the water makes up for it. We also brought our kayak and paddled around in the lake for a bit - the water can get a bit rough due to wind,... More

This is a very special place. The view of the Moosehead Lake islands is breathtaking. Park staff went out of their way to help us find the hiking trails and the rest rooms were new and clean. Although we didn't camp, the sites were quiet and well-maintained. Well worth the visit.
