RV Camping at Maine’s Deepest Lake

July 27, 2009

General Info: One of the five original state parks in Maine, Sebago Lake State Park has been a favorite vacation spot since 1938. Located just 25 miles northwest of Portland, the park spreads for 1400 acres along the north shore of the lake in the towns of Casco and Naples. Sebago Lake is the deepest and second-largest lake in Maine at 45 sq. miles, and is famous for its land-locked salmon.

Entrance to the park is $4.50 for adult Maine residents, $6.50 for adult non-residents, $1.00 for children ages 5-11, and $2.00 for senior non-residents (Maine seniors age 65+ get in free, as do children under 5). Call the park office at (207) 693-6613 for questions and information. Download the Sebago Lake park brochure PDF for general visitor information.

Activities: The park has sandy lakeshore beaches (great for swimming or fishing), sprawling forests, ponds, bogs and a river running through it. You’ll have opportunities for picnicking near the lake, cruising around the water by motor boat or canoe, and hiking the trails through the woods. Bicycling along the park roads is another popular activity. In winter, the hiking trails can be used for snow-skiing and snowshoeing. If you’ve brought the boat along, there’s a boat launch for a $5 daily fee. Whatever you choose to do, you’ll be able to enjoy the fresh air and gorgeous scenery. You may even catch a glimpse of some wildlife—but remember never to approach or feed animals, no matter how cute or docile they may seem.

Last year’s rates ranged from $15-$20 depending on type of site. A dump station is available for a $5 fee. Most sites are shaded and none have room for slideouts. Back-in RV campsites measure 25×25’, so if you’d prefer more spacious accommodations try parking the RV at the Naples Campground, a new, pet-friendly RV park with full hookup sites. The state park campground doesn’t allow pets.

Park management asks you to not bring firewood with you, in order to prevent the spread of insects and diseases that may threaten local forests. Buy firewood from a local store and burn it before moving on to another place.

If you’re from the Pine Tree State or have visited Sebago Lake State Park in the past, please chime in with your stories and travel tips! Information on this park was scarce and hard to find, so I appreciate any corrections or additions anyone can offer!

  35. In the words of many people (please check out the Internet for cotrifmanion), why fix a movie rating system if it ain’t broke. Nonetheless, please feel free to comment on any of the movies reviewed on K_Line, or which you may have seen elsewhere.

  38. We really like Sebago Lake and stay there at least a couple of times each summer. The fishing can be somewhat temperamental (at least for us), but really good, when it’s on, particularly from a boat. There’s also some nice hiking trails and the kids love riding their bikes around the campground.

    Went to Rangely Lakes. Stayed at Cupsutic Lake Campground. We just fit in with our 40 ft MH. Only 20 amp power. Campground needs some TLC – huge potholes but the views are beautiful and you can rent a boat. Grandson enjoyed fishing and also learned how to fly fish (he’s 15)
    Did not find Maine RV friendly(in general). Expensive campgrounds and they charge extra for non-residents. Not on our priority list to return.

  41. Dan,
    I got the 25×25′ from the 2009 Trailer Life Directory entry, and thought it better to err on the side of caution rather than have someone with a big rig get stuck. The campground map does indicate sites that can accommodate rigs up to 35′ or more, so I’d call the park office to verify the campsite dimensions just to be sure. Thanks for the feedback! 🙂

    Haven’t stayed here yet, I stayed next door at Point Sebego, but the campsites are bigger than 25X25. If you look at the map the different sites say what size camper you can fit. If the map is wrong then I am going to have a problem when I go in August.
