Good trail running

Pretty park with a quiet beach on the lake. The path through the woods is perfect for trail running and I found that there were not a lot of other great trail runs in the area.

Loved everything about this park...location on the lake, protected little inlets for solo kayaking and the wonderful ladies, Marion and Debbie, who check you in. For $20 a night you are treated to solitude and silence except for the birds singing almost nonstop. Can't recommend this park enough, especially after staying two nights in an overpriced Greenville Lodge where the... More

We rented a house in the area and drove into the state park to check it out. Rangers were very nice and helpful, campsites were wooded and peaceful. Had a nice beach and boat launch as well.

Our family goes every year. Love the lake views. Love driving to see moose and go for hikes. Love unwinding to the sound of quiet.

We always try for a camping site on the water when we visit. Our kids love the ducks that will come right up to our site. We can put our kayaks in the water and leave them on the waters edge so they always ready to go. There are a ton of mini islands to visit, explore and swim around.... More

We stayed in Rowell Cove on site 5, which is a waterfront site. It was close to the toilets and water access. The toilets were outhouses basically. I think they are actually called pit toilets, but anyway, they were clean and there was no odor which was nice. No hookups at any sites but picnic tables and fire rings with... More

The day we went to the park it was raining. We were able to get out and walk around. The beach area was very nice, we saw a mother duck & her babies. The campground was nice & plenty of space between sites.

We spend two nights tent camping in Lily Bay State Park, and had an absolute blast! The lake is great, and is a very friendly environment for children as there is a swimming area, and a playground. The bathrooms on the loops are not so great, but they have a comfort station with hot showers that are free. Each stall... More

We stopped at Lily Pond to check out the campsites and ended up staying for several hours. Beautiful scenery, clean beach, great play ground area and nice sites. We walked the hiking trail and just enjoyed the day.
