Sebago Lake is the crown jewel of our lakes region area. Known far and wide for its size, depth and cleanliness, Sebago Lake is the reason many visitors come here in the first place and is often the reason they keep coming back year after year after year.

Sport fishermen love its salmon and lake trout, recreational boaters love its clean, clear waters, and nature lovers love its grandeur. Spend one hour on this lake and experience all of its wonderful features: wide expanses of open water, bird and animal life, towering trees along its shoreline, and inspiring views of Mount Washington and the White Mountains of New Hampshire.

Sebago Lake is 316 feet deep at its deepest (deeper even than its mighty brother to the north, Moosehead Lake) and has an average depth of 107 feet.

Many marinas serve the large boating population on Sebago Lake. They include Sebago Lake Marina and Long Beach Marina in Sebago, Kettle Cove Marina in Casco, Richardson’s Boatyard in Standish, and Panther Run Marina and Port Harbor Marine in Raymond.

Bordered by the picturesque western Maine towns of Naples, Bridgton and Harrison, Long Lake is considered one of the premier recreational lakes in all of Maine.

Long Lake is 11 miles long, a mile wide, and covers 5,295 acres in surface area. It is 59 feet deep at its deepest and has a mean depth of 23 feet. The town of Harrison lies at its northern most point and Naples at its southern most point, where Long Lake flows under the causeway and into Brandy Pond, also known as the Bay of Naples.

The Maine Department of Environmental Protection has rated Long Lake’s water quality as “slightly above average”, reports that the incidence of nuisance algal blooms is “low”, and that there have been no documented evidence of any invasive aquatic plants such as milfoil or hydrilla.

Fish species found in Long Lake include brook trout, brown trout, lake trout, salmon, pickerel, largemouth and smallmouth bass, white and yellow perch.

There is a public boat launch in Harrison at the head of the lake, as well as one in Bridgton. The local marinas that service boaters on Long Lake are Harrison Marina and Gateway Marina in Harrison, Long Lake Marina in Naples, as well as Naples Marina, Causeway Marina and Moose Landing Marina in Naples, all located on Brandy Pond.

One of the added features of Long Lake is that it provides boaters with facilities to tie up in either Naples or Harrison where they can go ashore to enjoy a meal, do some shopping, or just walk around a quaint New England village.
