Summer & Fall: For those of you who are trying to plan a camping trip now for the summer and you are considering heading to Moosehead Lake than here are a couple of recommendations of local campgrounds. Heading about 8 miles outside of Greenville visitors will find Lilly Bay State Park. This is a state run campground and offers great private sites and free hot showers. Like most state campgrounds the amenities are limited but, if you are looking for a way to enjoy the lake, do some swimming and maybe even boating this is a great place to stay. The sites are wooded with natural outgrowth. The sites closest to the water are site numbers 213-224. You definitely can bring your boat into the campground there is a boat launch and slips available for guest. The kids will love the playground and beach area. The nice thing about this campground is it’s close to Greenville which means if you run out of something or need more ice there is grocery stores close by. Another place to camp on Moosehead is Moosehead Family Campground in Greenville. This is a privately owned campground so there are more amenities although town is just a few miles away. The campground offers both tent and rv sites as well as a playground for the kids, a camp store just in case you run low on something and firewood on site. In the morning stop in at the camp store and enjoy a free cup of coffee or tea, who needs Starbucks! The camp sites are private and nicely landscaped. The campground offers hot, free showers and spacious bath and changing facilities. Be sure to grab your book and make some time to sit back and relax while the wilderness moves about around you. You can hear the cry of the loons and enjoy the tranquility of nature that surrounds you.
