Logo   Sebago Lake, Maine
Close to Portland and all transportation, but miles away from city and coastal-resort bustle, Sebago Lake is a pure Maine natural refuge for your vacation.


Sebago Lake, 18 miles (29 km) northwest of Portland (map), is the second largest lake in Maine, Greater Portland's prime water supply, and a great place to get away from it all.

Despite its convenient closeness to Portland, the lake's 105 miles (169 km) of forest-cloaked shoreline are carefully preserved, offering fine water and island views.

The eastern shore is dotted with villages and businesses.

At the southern tip, the town of Sebago Lake is hardly more than a few dozen houses, two stores, and a gas station.

The northern reaches of the lake hold the best recreational possibilities, including Migis Lodge, a traditional Maine summer resort inn and cottages offering opportunities for a tranquil, refined lakeside vacation: days of swimming, hiking, boating, sailing, fishing, tennis, golf, relaxation and fine dining. It's been offering these simple but superb pleasures since 1916. More...

Just to the west of Migis Lodge is 1,400-acre (567-hectare) Sebago Lake State Park, with its fine beach, picnic facilities, hiking trails, bicycling roads, and a 250-site camping area.

Although very busy in summer, the park is yours to enjoy with only a handful of others in early June or in September after Labor Day weekend.

Sebago Lake Family Campground on the west shore of Sebago Lake in Standish, Maine has 101 sites for RV and tents, eight family cottages, and a private beach on the lake. More...
