No trip to Naples, Maine is complete without a stop along the Songo River to see the hand-operated Songo Lock which is over by the entrance to Sebago Lake State Park & Campgrounds. It’s fascinating to watch the lock fill and raise a boat so it can pass upriver or lower a boat for going downriver. The elevation change is... More

We went out for a ride on the Boat and it was a perfect day. We just went out for the 1 hour ride. Very pretty, nice smooth ride around the lake. Lots of history was given about the area on the ride.

This is a great place to launch a canoe or kayak or just sit and have a picnic while watching boat make their way through the historic lock on their way to or from Sebago Lake. This spot is a part of Sebago Lake State Park that many people miss when they go to the beach at the day-use park,... More

Great last cruise on the Songo Queen to enjoy the beautiful foliage and have a couple beers :) Love taking the ride. Wish it still went through the Songo though.

An hour's trip. Interesting to see everything from the water. Wish I'd put on some insect repellent though, as I got bitten a couple of times.

What a quiet, relaxing journey up a winding, peaceful river that takes you to a working historic, hand operated lock from the 1800's? This is it!!! Headway speed only on this small lazy river. During the summer, boat traffic can get busy especially during the weekends. There is a $6 fee for using the Songo River Locks. Then watch as... More

We decided to take our pontoon across Bradys Pond and through the Locke , into the Songo River. Loved coasting through this scenic waterway on our way to Sebago! With backyards on either side in certain spots, we found everyone out on their docks to be friendly. A nice trip all-in-all! I recommend the Locke to the river! : )

A beautiful trip down the Songo on the Songo Queen River Boat. Went through the locks, which was an experience. Beautiful trip.

Fun to go on the winding river and locks that take you to connecting lakes.
