Take your boat and travel between Long Lake and Sebago lake via the Songo Lock, which was originally built in 1830 and was improved in 1911. It is still operated by hand! Cost to go through the lock is now $15.00 but they only charge in one direction. (cost went up from $6.00 Jan 1st 2016) The river is a... More

Heading up from Lake Sebago we took the Songo River and went through the lock on our way to Naples, Maine. It was both relaxing as well as a unique family experience as we boated through the lock, originally built in 1911. The history, the scenery, and flora and fauna of Maine was beautiful and well worth the trip!!!

Great place to see and visit if your near by. Interesting to see how the old locks worked all by hand. Watch the boats rise and fall by the force of water. You can drive there but you can also go through it in a boat if you have one that's even more fun. it only cost $6 to go... More

We had a nice, relaxing tour of the lake and learned a lot about its features and surrounding waterways and mountains on the Songo Queen II.

This makes for a calm and relaxing boating trip. It is a neat little trip through the history of canals in the area. Also good for kayaking and canoeing. This year the Songo Locks increased the fee to $15 when heading Southbound (Brandy Pond to Sebago). There is no fee Northbound. The river and locks can get quite busy on... More

Anytime we have guests they ask to ride down the Songo River. It's a great slow ride as the river meanders to the Historical Songo Locks . Make sure you go through the locks, it's a great experience.

The Songo River is the connecting waterway between Brandy Pond and Sebago Lake. There you will come upon the oldest hand operated locks in the country. This river is like a snake with all its twists & turns. There is an area where you actually pass the same place twice. For a boater it truly is worth the trip because... More

Good kayaking, the issue is all the power boats. Catch it off peak for a great time, when it's busy it's too busy.
