“Frye's Leap Cafe”
Reviewed 13 June 2014

I have been coming to Sebago Lake for close to 10 years. However, we only discovered Frye's Leap Cafe two summers ago! I'll tell you it is a hole in the wall and a hidden gem all in one. Since discovering the cafe and meeting the new owners, we have become regulars at the cafe! They have everything from 12 beers on draught to pizza, sandwiches, and seafood. Not to mention their delicious frozen mudslides. The best thing about it is the view of the lake from the front deck! The sunsets are unbelievable, and a breakfast buffet on Saturday and Sunday mornings puts it over the top! I haven't had a bad experience yet, they always make our time on the lake even more enjoyable with their outstanding service and delicious food. If you're looking for a pizza and beer break, or a sit-down meal with the family, Frye's Leap Cafe is the place to be!

“it is worth every second!”
Reviewed 2 November 2013

my wife introduced me to this place fives years ago. She used to go there as a kid and even her mother did the same! We stay on the state park campground. The washrooms and showers are very clean. The grounds are amazing, the water is very clear and fairly warm. We have been going for 5 years now and don't intend on stopping. Its truly a relaxing vacation but if you want to do shopping its in between two outlet shopping in Freeport and North Conway both about 45 mins away.

“Beautiful lake and wonderful place to vacation.”
Reviewed 10 September 2013 via mobile

Stayed at the lake for third time. Always beautiful. Clear but cold water. Cruised one evening to quiet cove and watched a bald eagle fly overhead. Spectacular. Connected to several other lakes by Songo canal and working lock. Fantastic! Go there!

We cruised into Sebago Lake via the Songo River and beached our pontoon on the sandbar! What a great day. You can walk for what seems like miles without reaching very deep water.

The sandbar was a perfect spot to unload the coolers and eat, drink, swim and be merry! In the marsh on the backside of the sandbar is some decent fishing. Proud to say...much to my 15 year olds surprise, I caught the biggest fish. Could not wait to unhook and release the ugly pike , which was about 12 inches long, back into the water where he came from!

It was a great day for young and old alike, as our age span was 1 through 81 !

A relaxing day with family and friends. Who could ask for more!?!

Our only complaint is that we hit something (maybe some hidden driftwood) in the channel...$100 bucks to fix the damaged prop stunk, but not enough to ruin the memories of a great day!

“Crowded experience”
Reviewed 28 July 2013 via mobile

True, the site at the Sebago Lake is awesome. Although trees are scattered throughout the campsite, they're so tall that they primarily provide shade against the sun and leaving the site all open at ground level. You get the experience that you are all
stacked and packed when the site is very busy. There are very little for the kids to do. Good that we stayed just one night.
