Sebago Lake State Park Beach - Songo Beach
Sebago Lake is Maine’s second largest body of water covering 45 square miles. The north shore of the lake is home to Sebago Lake State Park, a beautiful 1,400 acre reserve that is very popular with outdoor enthusiasts of all kinds. The gem of the park is the 1800-foot long Songo Beach, which attracts large crowds on hot summer days. But there’s plenty of room for everybody on the large sandy expanse. Swimming and sunning are the popular activities at the beach. Lifeguards are on duty during busy summer days. Pets are not allowed on state park beaches, but are welcome on leash elsewhere.
A snack bar serves up a menu of tasty foods, from burgers and hot dogs to ice cream and sodas. There are bathroom facilities with flush toilets. Plenty of picnic tables with charcoal grills mean no problem finding space to spread out for the day. Covered picnic pavilions may be reserved for group use. Parking is available near the beach.
Boaters can launch their boat from the ramp and head out onto the expansive waters of the lake for a tour or to fish for trout and salmon. Kayaking and wind surfing are also popular watersports here. A variety of hiking trails wind through the forest past ponds and bogs and along rivers, and wildlife is plentiful. Bicyclists will enjoy cruising the park’s paved and gravel roads.
The park hosts a 250-site campground for tenting, camper trailers and RVs. Each campsite has a table and campfire ring. Bathrooms with hot showers and flush toilets are available, and drinking water faucets are located throughout the campground. A playground helps keep the kids busy, and evening ranger programs will entertain the whole family.
North Windham, Raymond and Naples have a complete range of services. A ride on the Songo River Queen, a historic paddle wheeler, is a special treat.
Sebago Lake State Park is open from May 1 to October 15.
