Sebago Lake is the perfect inland water getaway for residents of Central & Southern Maine and a destination for adventure seekers far and wide. The lake is the second largest in Maine at 45 square miles. The water runs clear and deep. The lake can accommodate a myriad of boats and watercraft without feeling overrun…you can always find a little peace and tranquility in a cove or forested inlet to relax, take a dip, or set a line in the water. Summertime is the right time for a water adventure on Sebago Lake, and Sebago Lake State Park is open year round to keep you coming back for more.
• An aerial view: Start your summer off right with a birds eye view of Lake Sebago! Naples Seaplane Adventures offers a 50 mile Sebago Lake tour flight. You will enjoy views of Frye’s Leap Cliffs, Frye Island, Songo Locks, and a couple of beaches. Alternatively, you could opt for the 25 mile ride starting at the dock in Naples, Maine, and fly over Long Lake, Sebago Lake State Park, and majestic Mount Washington. One, or both, of these seaplane adventures, is sure to stir up your sense of adventure and explore more of the lake by foot, boat, canoe, or kayak!
• See you on the links: The Point Sebago Golf Course was calling out your name as you flew over on your seaplane adventure. You didn’t hesitate to call for a tee time after the flight. Rightly so, as it is regarded as one of Maine's finest courses nestled on 500 acres in a white birch forest. The par 72, 18-hole course, caters to all levels of play. You can bring the whole family … and the winner gets to decide what’s next, fishing, kayaking, or hiking.
• Festivals: The Windham Summerfest is a great way to enjoy some of the small town charm in the Sebago Lake Region of Maine. The festival has been running strong for over twenty years. The celebration is set for June 18, 2022, and will include live music, a parade, a cruisin’ car show, a scavenger hunt, and a golf ball drop (to support the Sebago Lakes Region Chamber of Commerce programs and events). The scavenger hunt is a week-long town-wide event starting on Saturday, June 11th with prizes awarded the following Saturday on the main-stage at 6:00pm June 18th. The Motor Booty Affair is set to hit main-stage at 7:30pm (for all your funky disco dancing pleasure) and the event is capped off with fireworks after the groove gets you to move!
• Fishing: You’ve enjoyed a round or two of golf with the family and got your groove on with Maine’s very own “ultimate disco party band” now what could be better than that? Perhaps dropping a line or setting a fly on Lake Sebago to see what’s biting. Fishing is always a fun activity on Sebago Lake! The lake provides prime real estate for the local brook trout, largemouth and smallmouth bass, black crappie, and white and yellow perch. The rock piles, underwater islands, coves, and inlets are holding plenty of fish in the two to six pound range … and you might get lucky and land a twenty three pound landlocked salmon! The state record was set in 1907 by Edward Blakely on Sebago Lake with a 22lb 8oz landlocked salmon. It will be hard to beat, but you can try your luck for free on Maine’s “Free Fishing Weekend” June 4-5, 2022, and secure a fishing license for the rest of the season after you get hooked!
• Camping: Sebago Lake State Park has 250 campsites on over 1,400 acres on the north shore of the lake. After you set up base camp you’ll be ready to enjoy a swim in the water, fishing, canoeing, and hiking. You will enjoy a perfect summer night sleeping in your tent, or RV, with a belly full of roasted brook trout and wake up early the next day to have another go of beating that 1907 landlocked salmon record (someone has to do it).
