Lily Bay State Park

Certainly one of our most beautiful state parks, Lily Bay State Park is located on the northeast shore of Moosehead Lake.  Offering excellent views of Moose Mountain, paddling to Sugar Island and easy access to Kokadjo and nearby hiking, this is a prime location for enjoying all that the Moosehead Lake region has to offer.

We’ve spent time here on a few occasions including Columbus Day weekend of 2014 and July 4th weekend of 2015 and are headed back for July 4th weekend of 2017.  To get reservations for 4th of July you need to have your act together.  Grab a friend and plan your itinerary in advance for best results.

Lily Bay has two different spots you can camp at Rowell Cove and Dunn Point, we always camp at Dunn Point because it has great access to the public beach, park and playground which is great for the kids.



The kids loved checking out the B-52 crash site, which is kind of a local legend. I highly recommend trying to find it. Send us a message if you need some tips.

Lily Bay State Park is beautiful in the summer and fall and I highly recommend packing up your gear and hitting the road to one of Maine’s best parks! You can never go wrong camping in Maine in any season if you have the right clothing!

Will I see you around the campfire?! use #lovemaineadventures to share your stories!
