Sebago-Lake is located 17 miles northwest of Portland in southern Maine, and is the state's second largest lake. The 1400-acre 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 has sandy beaches, swimming, boating, fishing for land-locked salmon and trout, parasailing, windsurfing, camping and picnicking spots to offer visitors. 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 has an 18-hole golf course that has been recognized by Golf Digest as one of the best new courses in North America. The small town of Sebago is located along the shore of the lake, and is a quiet, peaceful place to base your vacation. Here you'll find plenty of lodging and fine restaurants, and in season, several of the local farms sell blueberries, apples, pears, pumpkins, maple syrup and more at roadside stands alongside the highways. At the north end of the lake, Songo Lock is the lone, surviving lock of the Cumberland and Oxford Canal, and it dates back to 1830. 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. Another nearby interesting place to visit while in Sebago is the nearby Sabbathday Lake Shaker Museum. Established in the late 18th century, this is the last active Shaker Community in the United States.
