VISITING THE AREA
Welcome to Maine’s Sebago Lake Region, where we truly have something to offer everyone.
Our ten towns, bordering one of the state’s most beautiful lakes, form a vibrant region where visitors and residents alike enjoy an abundance of natural resources -- the unspoiled beauty of lakes and streams, the peace and tranquility of forests and mountaintops, and the charm of historic villages and one-of-a-kind landmarks.
The Indian name Sebago (Sa-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 43-mile length of continuous waterway for all kinds of water sports and recreation. In summer, the famous paddle-wheel steamboat Songo River Queen plies Sebago and Long Lake in Naples, for all who come to the Lakes region.
On the north shore of the lake is Sebago Lake State Park, a popular destination featuring a sandy beach, woodland walking trails, picnic areas, a playground, concessions, restrooms, boat launching 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 fill with visitors eager to soak up a bit of Maine charm. Begin your adventure by reserving a Lakeside Cabin or vacation home 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, rent a boat for the day, stroll around a charming village, or sunbathe on 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. Enjoy local festivals nearly every weekend featuring great local food, midway fun, and entertainment. Night time holds a wonderful array of things to do in the Lakes Region …dining, live music, drive-in movies, summer stock theatre 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.
In other seasons, the pace of activities may slow down, but there is no lack of things to do in the Sebago Lakes Region. Fall visitors love our brilliant foliage, pumpkin and apple-picking, fly-fishing, agricultural fairs, harvest parties and end-of-summer sales. Winter visitors enjoy Seasons Greetings events, ice fishing derbies, winter carnivals, snowmobiling and community suppers. Spring visitors look forward to Maine Maple Sunday, the Naples Blues Festival, car shows, un-crowded golf courses, and ideal conditions for outdoor sports and recreation.
We are proud of all our region has to offer and hope you will enjoy your time with us. Whether you are a resident, business owner, first time or seasoned visitor or looking to relocate here, we welcome you with open arms. 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".
