The Indian name Sebago (Se-bay-go) means “great stretch of water.” At 8 miles wide and 10 miles long, Maine’s second largest lake is a great and diverse resource. Rivers that flow into Sebago Lake provide a 40-mile length of continuous waterway for all kinds of water recreation. Power boaters, sailors, kayakers, canoers and anglers and beach goers all enjoy the area and the historic Songo Lock connecting Sebago and Long Lake in Naples. The lock provides a fascinating point of interest for all you come to the Lake region.
On the north shore of Sebago Lake is beautiful Sebago Lake State Park, a popular destination featuring a sandy beach, woodland walking trails, picnic areas, a playground, concessions, restrooms, boat launches and 250 campsites on 1400 acres. Camping is very big in the Sebago Lakes Region, with choices ranging from deluxe lakeside RV sites and cabins to traditional tenting on wooded lots.
Between Memorial Day and Columbus Day our lakeside towns are alive with visitors eager to soak up a bit of Maine charm. Begin your adventure by reserving a lakeside cabin for a week or a local motel, inn or B&B for any number of days. When the weather is warm and sunny, go for a hike to a spectacular view, stroll around a charming village, or spend the day at one of our beautiful beaches. Enjoy a picnic at a scenic park, go berry-picking or explore the network of back roads that locals favor. When the day is cool or rainy, take a drive around the lake and stop to explore local museums, the Maine Wildlife Park, unique craft and gift shops and so much more. Night time holds a wonderful array of things to do in the Lakes Region: dining, live music, drive-in movies, summer stock theater or just mingling with the throngs on the busy Naples Causeway. Whatever you do, you’ll find that this is a place where lasting memories are made.
Plan to visit our region soon and you will want to come back again and again, as Sebago Lakes Region is “Fun For All Seasons.”
