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 .

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

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!

Quick Trip

I’ll preface this by saying that we got in after dark and left by 10am so this review is limited. First, while being very nice the front desk worker was not very helpful in helping us understand the layout and our best choice for tent camping that night. She was just not very communicative. After some prodding questions that felt like I was pulling teeth, we chose site 1 which was by the beach and the only tent site in that area of the campground. It was mid Sept on a particularly windy and unseasonably cold night. The wind was coming right off the lake which made it particularly hard to set up. Blocking the wind with our car was our only choice. After we got settled in, a nice fire and a little bourbon made it all worthwhile. While not very private because we were right next to an RV (all the RVs were lined up on the waterfront with little space between), it was still quite a lakefront spot. The site included a picnic table, a fire ring and a charcoal grill. Buckets of well seasoned wood were available at the camp store right next to us. It had a nice porch to sit on for the morning sun but unfortunately, that looked the opposite way from the lake toward the dense central campground. The camp store had a nice indoor dining area with views toward the lake that I believe was also closed for the season. All in all, I would recommend this if you’re not very concerned with privacy and want a beautiful lake to camp by.

Foliage paradise

The campsite has a nice pond attached, it also has apartments with bathrooms as well as small cottages with out bathrooms. It is a full service RV campsite so that is always convenient. We went at the end of September to visit Acadia National Park and the foliage was Beautiful! It wasn't even at it's peak. The campsite is surrounded by beautiful trees.

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.

Nice quiet campground

Nice campground that is very clean and quiet. Seems to be targeted at older crowd with no playground or pool. Sites are very clean, good space, well laid out and pretty level. Good cellular and wi-fi coverage if that is important to you. Small outdoor game area, nice recreation room and just down the road to Bangor, shopping with short trips to Baxter state park and Bar Harbor. Staff very polite and pleasant. Nice campground…we will definitely visit again.


What a beautiful campground with such unique charm. We stayed for a week and absolutely loved it. The atmosphere is the epitome of laidback and the scenery was breathtaking. We’ll definitely be back!

Close to the great north woods

This campground is a decent place for a home base while exploring the region.

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!!
