Snowshoeing

  • 5.5 miles of groomed trails are open for snowshoeing on the Casco side of the park.
  • 6 miles of ungroomed trails, as well as the campground access road, are available in the Naples portion of the park. The entrance to the campground road is plowed for parking to access the Naples side trails.
  • Off-trail exploration is welcome and affords an opportunity to see areas less accessible during the warmer months.

Fishing

  • Winter access for fishing may be enjoyed from the park. Ice often does not form on big Sebago Lake until much later than the other local lakes and ponds, so caution is always advised before venturing out.
  • The ice should always be tested every few feet for safe and adequate thickness.
