Title sums it up! The wild yellow waterlily‘s are perfect💛 the camp site is with-in walking distance of tea cup lake which has great fishing, and a cute board walk around part of the lake. Star gazing was exceptional🌌! I would recommend staying at camp sites 5-9, my personal favorite is number 7
Happy camping 🏕🏔
This is a great camp site for the Unitas. We had an awesome site, #7 which backed to the small lake between Lilly Lake and Teapot Lake. This is a awesome fishing spot with access to three major lakes from the camp.
The camp site is small and traffic is not busy even on the weekends. But availability is very iffy. It took us a couple times to finally score a place here. We loved it and plan to return.
One of the best options if you have to settle for a campground close to the road or are coming into camp late in the day (weekdays only). Lilly Lake campground would be my third pick for best roadside campgrounds along Mirror Lake Hwy. The campsites at the far west side of the campground are far enough away from the road to offer some seclusion, but the sites themselves are pretty closely spaced.
The best thing about staying at this campground is easy <5 min access to 3 great lakes for fishing! There is the namesake lake whose entire west side is covered in beautiful lillypads. A tiny bit south on the Hwy is the uniquely shaped Teapot Lake and directly across the road from Lilly Lake is Lost Lake, which also hosts the Lost Creek Campground is case Lilly CG is full. Camping here is steeply priced like most other spots along the Hwy but it stays open a good bit later into the fall season than most of the other CG's. There are 14 single sites that cost $23 a night. In addition to the camping fee you'll also need a Mirror Lake Hwy Recreation Pass which is $6 for 3 days and $12 for the week. If you have an America the Beautiful Interagency Pass then that will cover the recreation fee but not the camping fee.
campground is nice but expensive compared to purchasing a 1-3day 6.00 adventure pass at the forest office and camping anywhere along the road or on lily lake. the campground is paved and very nice but the road up to the campground is not and due to the large rocks and bumpy road may take a toll on your vehicle. if you have any off-road vehicles, atvs or just like to explore this whole area is the place to be. you can fishing, kayak or paddle board on the lake and during the weekend this is a very popular place. there is bathrooms and also water at this campground
