Gateway to Moosehead's vast wilderness

Absolutely one of the jewels in the Maine State Park System, Lily Bay on enormous Moosehead Lake is generally open year round. Historically, this area was part of the Northern Canoe Trail and an important logging tract. It’s reasonably close to the Maine finish of the AT at Mt.Katahdin. 

It is…

Pretty Campground with access to the lake

Very nice campsite. Out site was away from the lake so we only had access to outhouse but could drive to the lake and comfort station with plumbed toilets and showers. Some nice trails around the lake but did see a snake which cut our walk short.

Almost Perfect

The campground is probably the best maintained Maine State Park. There are very few undersireable sites. I stayed on site 25 with access to the water via a short path. Most sites are well spaced and fairly flat requiring very little leveling and would have given 5 stars except the camp host used a…

Campground on beautiful Moosehead Lake

Very popular campground. We arrived the Tuesday after Labor Day weekend without a reservation thinking it would be easy to snag one of the 8 FF sites that fit RVs. There was only one site available, so we lucked out. Beautiful campground on the lake. Mostly full and partial shade, so don't plan on…

Cathedral Pines is claimed to be one of the most beautiful campgrounds by people all around the country. The space between the sites, mountain views, an campground in high demand. Very kid friendly. An abundance of outdoor activities right out your door. Highly recommend!!!!

Small primitive campground on a large lake

There's no fee to camp on Seboeis public lands and you can stay up to 14 days. That said, because it’s free and extended(14-day) stays are permitted, it can be hard to snag a drive-in, lakefront site. I returned on 3 consecutive weekdays and the only drive-in sites were occupied by the same…

  • View from the dock at the boat ramp
  • One of the drive-in, lakefront sites
  • Another lakefront site. This area could be split into 2 sites, but it looked like one group occupying both.

Love This Place

This is our second time at this campground in as many years (same date range too). This year we took my dad.

If you want to be with a bunch of RVers, you can do that. Lots of sites in a row (right on the waterfront), plenty of space between, but little to no trees in that area. Kids love it…

A throwback campground

Truly nice folks who built this campground 39 years ago, still run it. Well maintained and full of nice folks. Mostly rv camping with some tent sites. A lot of seasonal rv occupants. Great for families with children but nice for all folks. Two bath areas and a laundry room. Free baths and…

When we saw the listing we were really excited to stay there: it had a canvas tent and is on Deer Isle (relatively) near Stonington. As we drove out there we realized that is was in a pretty remote part of the island, which was not what we were expecting.

The Con: When we arrived we were shocked…

Loud, needs a lot of work, nice location

The campground was very loud - lots of music, yelling, just loud. There is garbage everywhere - like bags of it on the deck of the "camp store" that doesn't appear to be used anymore. And junk all over. The bathrooms were cleanish. Everything was nicely mowed. It was twice as expensive as most…

Cute place, great owners, small sites

The owners of this campground are the best. Ask them about their life story! All the things you need are there - firewood, water, bathrooms and showers, and even electricity at the site. Only thing is the sites are small and close together. I was there when it was still cold and was the only person…

Wonderful location only 18 sites. I have camped here several times and live in the area. Roads are bumpy and dusty but very passable. Though I’m not bringing my half million dollar Dutch Star here. Basic caper or tent absolutely. Sites are simple with no hookups or dump station. Don’t let my…
