Lily Bay State Park is a public recreation area in the town of Greenville, Piscataquis County, Maine. The state park occupies 924 acres (374 ha) on the southeast shore of Moosehead Lake, the largest lake in New England. It was established in 1961 on woodland primarily donated by the Scott Paper Company in 1959.[3] The park offers camping, boating, fishing, swimming, and snowmobiling.[4] A two-mile trail used for hiking, snowshoeing, and cross-country skiing follows the shore of the lake.[3][5]
