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... read more

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.

There was a steady parade of boats up this lovely ending river. We went through the locks and it was a wonderful adventure.Fee is $6 per boat.

Love, love, love a day trip cruising on the Songo River whether by motor boat or canoe. Nice slow ride making it quiet and so relaxing. Nice stops along the way including the sand bar for a stretch. Must try this one if you enjoy slow and easy cruise in a lovely area.

A wonderful, relaxing ride down the river enroute to a day on the 'sand bar'. View birds, turtles, and drift wood. Be mindful to keep your speed low, no wake (head speed only) to preserve the shore line and in respect of property owners along the river.

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
