Raymond is a lovely town that sits on the northeast shore of Sebago Lake, which is the second largest lake in the state of Maine. Sebago Lake State Park, located on the north shore of the lake, was opened in 1938, and is one of the five original state parks in Maine. This forested lakeside park contains 1400 acres with sandy beaches, swimming, boating, salmon and trout fishing, parasailing, windsurfing, camping and picnicking. Beautiful wooded areas alongside the lake offer trails for hiking and biking, and ponds and a river offer even more opportunities for canoeing, kayaking, swimming and boating. Sebago Lake also offers an 18-hole golf course that has been recognized by Golf Digest as one of the best courses in North America. You'll find plenty of lodging in the area along with fine restaurants, roadside produce stands, quaint shops and antique stores. At the north end of the lake, Songo Lock is the lone surviving lock of the Cumberland and Oxford Canal, dating back to 1830. Other unique attractions on Sebago Lake include cruises on board the Songo River Queen II, and paddlewheel boat rides across Brandy Pond through Songo Lock to Sebago Lake. The Sabbathday Lake Shaker Museum, which was established in the late 18th century, is located near Raymond and is the last active Shaker Community in the United States. The town of Raymond is just a half-hour drive from the city of Portland.
