Take a picnic, swimming gear, and lawn chairs and blankets. You will want to just kick back and relax in this very peaceful setting. Parking is close so you do not have to walk very far. There is a great updated playground for the kids right there too. Walking trails and docks on Moosehead Lake are also close by. I... More

We wanted to walk somewhere along the lake. When we got out of the car, a young doe and buck were grazing nearby. My husband was snacking on some grapes. We stood calmly and he called to the buck. He walked up tentatively and took the bunch from my husbands hand. Clearly they were used to people. It was really... More

First off the staff is great! The camp sites are great and with a great view. Best part is the shower house. Each shower is in its own room with a sink, toilet, hand dryer, electric outlet... and very clean... WOW! Would love to go back if given the chance to visit the area again. Highly recommend this park.

We spent several hours here one beautiful fall day, and walked the trails, wandered along the shoreline and mess some very nice people. We also checked out the campground and it is very nice! Secluded sites, decent facilities, and Moosehead Lake, is one of the best lakes in the northern hemisphere!

My husband and I visited Lily Bay State Park in August, and it is one of the loveliest beach parks we have ever seen. The setting is beautiful... The view to the water is so relaxing! There is a small beach and a very nice swimming area, which is suitable for young children. Kayaks and canoes paddle by...

Went canoeing and this place is absolutely wonderful. It was a bit of a drive from where we stayed in Bangor but totally worth it. We saw one moose. That was exciting because we have been all over the places moose are supposed to live and had yet to see one. Great trip. Words really cant describe how beautiful it... More

After paying the fee to get in, my hubby and I went right for the beach. The water was perfect and crystal clear. It was so peaceful with only a few campers and a few kids swimming. I walked on the beach with my toes in the water and had some friendly ducks walk right up to me! It was... More

A nice spot with lots of easy walks on the shore of Moosehead Lake. A number of places where you can just walk into the water to wade or swim. Be sure to bring salt in case you run into leeches and wear beach shoes if you don't like walking on pebbles and rocks.
