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.

We liked the great facilities for the state park. Many things to do there. Lots of hiking trails. Right on the water.

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.

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
