About this site

Sebago Lake is one of Maine's most important natural resources. It is one of the state’s largest lakes and, at over 300 feet deep, it is the deepest lake in New England. It serves as the drinking water supply for nearly 1/6 of Maine’s population as well as hundreds of thousands of visitors to the state each year. The view from this site captures the southern extent of the lake, known as Lower Bay, located at the intersection of Route 35 and Route 237 in Standish. On a clear day you can see Mount Washington on the horizon.

The  Lower Bay of Sebago Lake is where water is withdrawn for treatment so, by state law, no trespassing is allowed on the water or ice in this part of the lake.
