Escape from it all

We had a great weekend camping at Lily Bay State Park. Easily accessible as it is a well maintained state park.The staff are friendly and keep the facilities extremely clean. Water access for all via the beach area or reserve early to get a site on Moosehead Lake. Kayaking and swimming are available from the site. Facilities are available. We had some very friendly chipmunks and a doe and fawn walk through our site. For adventurous folks, a ferry ride to Kineo and a hike to the tower is a great way to spend the day. Do your research, ferry schedules are subject to change due to weather. The hike is moderate to hard, but offers some fantastic views of Moosehead Lake.

Great weekend escape

This campground is approximately 13 miles from the West Forks, Maine--home to the best whitewater rafting in the state. The campground staff are extremely pleasant, helpful, and keep the grounds very clean. This is an out of the way facility--8 miles in on dirt roads, not for those that want all the amenities of larger campgrounds. Many of the sites are located on the water--this is a very beautiful lake--quiet--full of fish, easy kayaking, or just sitting on the water's edge. The sunsets are beautiful. The campground is very quiet. Near the campground is Moxie Lake and Moxie Falls, the falls are well worth the easy hike in.
