Don’t Let Your Maine Summer Slip Away

I am reflecting on how to take advantage of the rest of the Maine Summer. Angus King recently said “Summer lingers, but cool mornings are a portent. Remember, however, September is our secret”.  If you are not following Senator King on Instagram, you should consider doing so- He rides his Harley around the state and showcases everything that our great state has to offer and […]

Mud Brook- Lily Bay State Park

  Mud Brook is Lily Bay State Park’s group campsite.  Set on a peninsula north of the park, this is a great spot for larger camping crews.  It has all the benefits of the state park, but is a bit more rustic with only one outhouse and no other facilities. After breaking some of the rules at Lily Bay because our group was too big and […]

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 […]

Seboomook Wilderness Campground

The Seboomook Wilderness Campground is in the northwest cove of Moosehead Lake, close to the Golden Road and the Canadian border.  We spent time at Seboomook over Labor Day of September of 2012 and 4th of July in 2013 & 2014.  The remote nature and distance from civilization are the best and worst parts of this campground.  Once you are there, you are there for the duration so […]
