The way life should be

LILY BAY is amazing 

State Park rates and a great jumping off point for day trips to Baxter / Katadin/ Kineo/ prong pond .etc etc

We love this park and my family has visited there since ot opened .

Yes , that many years 

Even though we have access to family camp nearby . we still love tenting there.

So many beautiful places to experience 

B52 crash site at Elephant Mountain



Fossil Pits 

Great place for kids

Cant wait to go back

Our 1st KOA

Loved this campground! Loved the staff! Great 1st KOA experience. Tons of stuff to do- great playground, tractor rides. Store was well stocked. Had an awesome time, met lots of awesome people!

Phenomenal Fall Conditions

Amazing clear water lake. 3 to 1 moose to human ratio, and abundant nearly tame birds and furry creatures. Haunting loon calls in the evening. Simple yet well maintained sites and facilities with responsive staff and relaxed, respectful neighbor campers. Sweet kayaking.

So much fun for the kids

Been here 3-4 times and have had an amazing time watch the kids. Great little fishing ponds, cabins and a Treehouse! Fun swimming pool and sooo many kid’s activities.


This entire area is amazing a little rough bit of drive down dirt roads but totally worth it!!

Free campsites - first come first serve

Find amazing dispersed rustic campsites around Second Roach Pond at AMC's Medawisla Lodge - call ahead for more info. 

Medawisla is a new lodge within northern Maine's 100-mile wilderness, a dark sky preserve. 

Sites are self-serve and are accessible via water or by car. Beautiful waterfront sites - bring your own kayak/canoe/SUP and you can paddle over to the main lodge or explore the lake while listening to the loons call. Moose sitings are frequent too.

Main lodge is new and gorgeous! Call ahead to reserve meals: breakfast and dinner available at additional cost (when available - call to reserve and inquire about current COVID 19 restrictions)

Also availble via Medawisla Lodge: guided hikes, fishing, kids activities (fee-based services). First priority reservations are given to paying lodge/cabin/bunkhouse guests, so call in advance to arrange or try your luck once you're there. 

Glamping experience (an AMC guide will set up your campsite and get your campfire ready for your arrival) may also be available - call to inquire. 

When we found these sites, my buddy immediately called them Narnia. I can't disagree!

Peaceful and simple.

Unique. Simple. Funky. Peaceful. Our favorite spot neat Acadia without the congestion. ❤️

Back again and just as good

Back for the second year in a row. Weather was amazing, sun sets were unmatched and fishing was on point. Again bring what you need with you as this campground is well out of the way.

On the shores of GORGEOUS Moosehead Lake!

This gorgeous state park along the shores of Moosehead Lake near Greenville feels like the campgrounds of my youth. Sites are all tucked into the woods with easy access to trails and the lakeshore. Each site offers the usual picnic table and fire ring. 

Well-kept latrines are scattered throughout the campground, as well as drinking water faucets.  A centrally located, and clean bath house with flush toilets, warm individual-use shower rooms, and a great dishwashing sink is a recent addition to this large facility. The only downside is that it can be a 10 to 15-minute walk from the farthest campsite, making most people get in their vehicles just to take a shower or wash dishes.

The great network of trails offer opportunity for hiking and biking in summer and skiing and snowshoeing in winter. The lake, over 35 miles long offers sailing, paddling, swimming and even power boating.  The closest town is conveniently located about 6 miles away for gas and groceries.

Fantastic family camping!

We had so much fun at this campground. So many many things to do for kids. The swimming pool was awesome as well as the water slides. The fireworks on July 4th could match Disney World! Wonderful place to camp!
