About NaplesOn the northwestern edge of Sebago Lake, Naples is the location of the Songo Lock, opened in 1830 for transportation along the 42-mile canal system to Portland. The lock now links the north end of Long Lake and Sebago Lake. The hand-operated gate is the only remnant of the old lock system connecting western Maine with the coast.
Such recreational opportunities as boating, windsurfing, seaplane rides and mail boat runs are popular in Naples, an area characterized by rolling hills and crystal-blue lakes. The causeway offers the opportunity for striking views of Mount Washington in the White Mountains of New Hampshire.
The old-fashioned riverboat Songo River Queen II , berthed at the causeway in the center of town at 841 Roosevelt Tr. (US 302), offers sightseeing cruises Memorial Day weekend to early October; phone (207) 693-6861.
