“A Great Park with Great Scenery”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 March 2013

Just before foliage season we spent a weekend day at Sebago Lake State Park. Entry was $4.50 for state residents. We found ample paved and dirt parking only a short walk from the beach. On a windy day, the lake water was a bit too cold for a swim so we walked the beach from the park's snack bar to the boat anchorage area. The sand was as clean as the water. The mountains and shoreline to the west were beautiful. We found some hiking trails into the woods. They led to a group camping area. The terrain was easy enough, but the trails were not well maintained and signs and blazes were infrequent. Other than the neglected trails we found nothing to dislike about this large park on the northeastern shores of Sebago Lake. If you visit, be sure to bring a camera and enough layers of clothes to suit the season!

“Natural beauty of sandy bottom lake perfect for all to enjoy every possible water activity.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 December 2012

I first visited Sebago Lake as a child with my family, many years ago. Since then, I continue to return as often as possible, with my own children. Sebago Lake with it's many towns and varied accomodations, has grown through the years, but continues to maintain a family centered area with many attractions. I have visited many lakes throughout the US, but always come back to the crystal clear, clean, sandy bottom Sebago Lake. I've stayed in rented cabins, private homes, campgrounds with our RV, B&B, and even a tent (admitedly years ago) and all have been memorable experiences. From sailing, kayaking and pontoon boats to canoes, pedal boats and jet skiing, this lake is true boaters paradise. If what you desire is an idyllic outdoor vacation experience, the Sebago Lake will offer a lifetime of Kodak moments and memories and best of all, never disappoint.

“poor for hiking”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 November 2012

this review is based on hiking. hardly any trails and those that are there are very difficult to find/ not clearly marked and short/ intersect with paved roadway. beautiful lake and ample parking and restrooms and lots of campsites but i bet this place could get a bit crazy in the summer. dog friendly in certain areas only.

“wonderful place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 November 2012

Sebago Lake is a special place. We've had wonderful days there as our kids have grown up. On the beach in the State Park, at the camp on the lake shore and memorable summers skiing and tubing on the lake and inner basin by Richardsons. Even when its frozen in winter its a special place. We travel a long way to be there - from Ireland.
