About Sebago Lake State Park
Opened to the public in 1938, Sebago Lake State park was one of the five original state parks of America. Nestled near the foothills of the White Mountains the park’s 1,400 acres of vast woodlands, sandy beaches, vibrant ponds, and deep emerald bogs inspire wonder and awe. A windy river snakes through one of the oldest historical locks in the region; while surrounding miles of expansive land create diverse habitats for a variety of plant and wildlife. Sebago Lake was carved by ancient rivers and Ice Age Glacier fallout. The now filled granite basin provides recreation and watersport activities to thousands every year. The region is an impressive feat of scenery, boasting dense forests of pine, aspen, and birchwood. A multitude of these directly touch the shore of Maine’s deepest and second largest lake. Subsequently, Sebago Lake State Park provides year-round camping and recreation to thousands. There are a number of popular activities, including lake (and river) swimming, sport fishing, camping, and even boating. The summer is especially busy thanks to the variety of large trees creating an abundance of breezy, shaded areas to escape the heat and hide the perfect makeshift rope swing. Unique to this area is the historic Songo Lock, the last surviving lock of Cumberland and Oxford Canal, built in the 19th century. It can be found directly on the Songo River, just above the intersection of Crooked River and the Northern End of Sebago Lake State Park in the town of Naples. The lock was built in 1830, featuring granite walls with real wooden control gates to control water levels. Other locks have since been updated, however this has been preserved for its historical relevance. Camping here provides the right environment for romantic nights under the stars, and misty mornings on the lake. There are 250 campsites available year-round, although tent camping here in the winter will get pretty chilly. That said, cross country skiing and distance snowshoeing are extremely popular winter activities. The campground also has good park service, various group picnic shelters, a fully functional playground, RV dumping station, and a limited amount of RV hookups for electric and water. There are even showers with working hot water, and facilities nearby for laundry. Don’t skip out on Lake Sebago State Park. It’s a blast for anyone willing to put themselves through the effort of packing the car up and getting out there. There’s a ton to do, with giddy feelings and laughs around the campfire. The region is well maintained, with all the benefits of a beachside resort without the expensive costs. If you don’t mind paving your own fun, you’ll be rewarded exponentially on the shores of Lake Sebago.

Gorgeous lakefront campground, state park with hookups

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.

Beautiful Lake

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.

Great Lake!

Beautiful lake. Nice faculties. Can be a little busy and campgrounds are close but the location is amazing

Good blend of tents and RVs.

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.

Close to home

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.

Beachy lake outside Portland

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.

In the woods but very crowded

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.

MainelyGlamping's Camper Glamper

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.

Family camping.

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.

Another awesome State Park in the great State of Maine!

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.
