Sebago Lake is a great state park, one of the few in Maine that offers hook-ups (W/E; there is a dump station). Its popularity results in higher rates and demand for resevations. Reservations open up in February a week before other state park campgrounds, with rates higher for non-Maine residents. Site are level and large, some of them along the waterfront. there are trails for walking along the lake and it's easy to launch a kayak. There is also a trailered boat launch. The beach is beautiful! Wonderful place for a family! I was there in autumn, but I imagine when it's busier in the summer, noise may be more of an issue.
The sites closest to the lake are very close together and crowded. the lake is awesome but I want more separation from other campers. Some were loud also.
Beautiful lake. Nice faculties. Can be a little busy and campgrounds are close but the location is amazing
This is a large campground right on the lake. Half of area is set up with RV hookups, so it nicely separates the tents from the RVs.
Sebago Lake State Park is close to Portland, Maine and neighboring towns. Nice to be close to home so the drive to arrive isn’t so long. Nice scenery and helpful staff. An enjoyable weekend.
Sandy beach with lots of trees, wetlands, bogs, a neat juxtaposition. Some of the campsites are near the water, most are now. There are some walk-up sites that we enjoyed---not too far from the car but far enough to give a bit more of a wilderness feel. They have showers and water, not much else. Make reservations throughout summer. They had a nice astronomy program by the local telescope club while we visited and the rangers spoke of other programs.
This campground was in the woods and was well maintained. The campsites definitely felt like they were on top of each other and are pretty small. We picked a medium one and could barely fit 2 tents and 2 cars with a safe distance from the fire. 2 sites were within 15ft of our fire pit. The bathrooms were very clean. The lake was nice too, sandy beaches. For a large portion of our stay it torrentially downpoured. The trees allowed us to canopy a tarp but our fire pit completely flooded and we had to bail it out when the rain finally stopped. If the sites weren't so close together and small I would definitely give this place 5 stars.
We stayed in the MainelyGlamping Camper Glamper which is a mobile glamping unit for hire. It was Memorial Day Weekend and we had a three night night stay. We loved the campground and it is great for our eight year old daughter who can safely ride her bike around with the other kids at the campground, enjoy the beach and enjoy the playground, but it still provides my husband and I with some relaxing/peaceful time together in the woods or sitting on the beach. We had two paddleboards which are add-ons with the MainelyGlamping package and we spent some time on one of the calm clear mornings paddling around the lake which was amazing.
This state park seems to be more geared toward family camping. The sites are crammed in but it's still comfortable. Sebago lake is a great spot for all types of fishing. From bass to landlocked salmon. And you can take the boat up river through the songo locks. All the way up to long lake. Stop at Naples causeway for a bite to eat. Plenty of good area hikes near by.
Fantastic weather and an awesome lake, Sebago State Park is a fabulous place to recreate. The area surrounding the campground has great hiking, fishing, canoeing, kayaking, and biking opportunities. The only reason I rate it as a 4 is because the campground itself is crowed… it is a very popular location with small lots! We tend to gravitate toward the more isolated campgrounds, but for a long weekend once a summer, this is a nice place to be.
