Settled under an hour away from the quaint town of Sangerville, Lily Bay State campers can expect to experience the unique beauty of Maine's shores and pebbled beaches. Located inside the breathtaking Maine Highlands Region, Lily Bay State Park is comfortably situated next to the over 40-mile long Moosehead Lake. Activities there include hiking, swimming, photography, fishing, and picnicking. Years prior to the park’s creation, Scott Paper Company gifted part of the rugged landscape in Beaver’s Cove to the state of Maine. In 1959, this landscape was instrumental in forming the Lily Bay State Park you can explore today.
While at the spacious, 925-acre park, you can step into the great outdoors and walk along the dirt road of Dunn Point Trail. Bring your swimsuit and dip into the lake mid-hike. Surrounded by a blend of lush green trees in the summer and deep red foliage in the fall, hiking in the North Maine Woods offers glimpses of Moosehead Lake at every turn. Wildlife in and around the park includes glossy black bears, white-tailed deer, and mischievous red squirrels. Book an RV in Piscataquis County to immerse yourself in the inspiring outdoors, where you’ll find yourself agreeing with Maine’s state slogan, "The way life should be."
While walking the relatively flat Dunn Point Trail, or hiking the short Rowell Cove Trail, keep your eyes on the skies and you might spot one of the many birds that find solace in the Maine trees. Birding includes ruffed grouse, pine warbler, golden-crowned kinglets, yellow-bellied sapsucker, and much more. Dog walking is encouraged at Dunn Point Trail, and there's even a special doggy swimming area at the boat landing section of the trail.
Along Lily Bay State Park’s peaceful shoreline, you’ll discover a myriad of unique geological formations, such as the striking exposed tree roots along the shoreline. Golden brown tree roots twist their way along the banks of the water, giving you the magical feeling of being in a fairytale. Camping with an RV is especially magical, as you will have the rare opportunity to see the lake during sunrise and sunset. Beat the sun down to the shore and watch as it rises across Moosehead Lake, lighting up the water with a fiery glow and silhouetting trees and mountains across the picture-perfect sky.
It's only fitting that such peaceful views should be experienced with a fishing rod in one hand and a camera in the other. Fishing is a popular choice at this freshwater body of lake as the waters are deep, well-oxygenated, and landlocked salmon are stocked to amplify catch rates. Other types of fish swimming in the waters include smallmouth bass, rainbow smelt, minnows, and Pumpkinseed sunfish. Just make sure to slather on some sunscreen while basking in the warmth of the sun, as summer months in Maine can get toasty!
Looking forward to renting an RV at Lily Bay State Park? Head over to Dunn Point, where there are 90 campsites available, some with lake views and all with easy access to the lake’s sandy beach. Each campsite is sheltered by the trees, providing a cozy amount of privacy.
RV site sizes vary from under 25 feet to a little over 35 feet. And although there are no RV hookups available, hot showers, drinking water, a personal fire pit, picnic table, and nearby playgrounds are all provided for your convenience. The camp also has wheelchair-accessible sites sprinkled across the campground, and each site offers the calm and quiet backdrop of the Maine woodlands.
While planning your Lily Bay State Park camping itinerary, leave yourself some time to experience the star attractions in the surrounding area. If you can’t get enough of Moosehead Lake, grab some bug spray and a camera to take the 45-minute trek over to Rockwood, where you can climb the staggering Mount Kineo. Formed by 700-foot cliffs jutting out from the lake, you can hike your way up the cliff’s face to get incredibly gorgeous views of Moosehead Lake. With an assortment of trails to choose from, Mount Kineo caters to hikers of all difficulty levels. The climb will not only be worth bragging rights to all your family at home, but it'll also provide some of the finest scenic views in New England.
For all of those history buffs looking to dive into the rich history of Moosehead Lake, the 20-minute trip over to Greenville’s Moosehead Historical Society and Museums will be more than worth it. Peruse thousands of authentic photographs highlighting the lives of diverse Maine characters, or take an engaging tour around the museum to see what rugged life in Maine might have looked like in the early 1800s. After a trip to the museum, fill your RV rental with gas and groceries at your choice of convenience stores in the area, or enjoy some American cuisine at a waterfront restaurant. After your meal, consider taking a quick airplane tour at a local business. Offering scenic views from a smooth little airplane, you’ll love the unique experience of seeing life from a bird’s eye view. Then head right back to Lily Bay State Park to catch that brilliant Moosehead Lake sunset before it’s too late.
