Pristine Sebago Lake centerpiece of bustling resort

Nestled among the pines, crystal-clear Sebago Lake, the deepest in Maine, provides drinking water for Portland – and endless fun for guests at the Point Sebago resort. From their camp site, cottage, vacation home or island lodge, guests can head out to the lake to go kayaking or canoeing, to fish for salmon, or just to relax or play a little volleyball on the mile of lifeguard-protected sandy beach. In the evening, there is dinner in the Lakeview Restaurant (while the kids are kept busy by trained camp counselors), as well as sunset cruises and games by the beach tiki bar. Folks with their own boats can make use of the free launch ramp or rent a dock slip in the marina.
