Can you drive a boat from sebago lake to long lake?

I've rented boats on sebago lake for years now and only recently heard someone talking about driving a boat from sebago to long lake. Is that possible? Through the locks perhaps?

use google maps satellite view. I you can certainly paddle it. The Crooked river, has a lock and some areas that look a little dicey. most likely depends on the draft of the boat

The answer is YES, you go thru the Songo Locks on Crooked River.

We were there last spring and watched 3 or 4 motorized boat come thru.

Now, I don't know their open dates, hours or fees.

Maybe call a local Marina on Sebago Lake or in Naples.

Did a search, it said $7.50 per boat each way. Did not list times or anything to use the locks.

The times are listed on the Sebago Lake State Park page:

Songo Lock

•$15 per boat round-trip passage.

◦May 1 - June 14: 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

◦June 15 - Labor Day: 8:00 a.m. to 7:30 p.m.

◦Day after Labor Day - October 15: 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

I'm not sure how often they open the lock but coming and going from the park on the road I've often had to wait a moment at that bridge for a small parade of boats so I imagine it's quite frequent, or as frequently as needed when a small queue forms during the busy hours.

Yes you can. You have to go through the Songo Locks. During Busy summer days the line of boats going through can be VERY time consuming. Better to decide which lake you are going to spend time on and enter on that lake. If you plan on going back and forth, give yourself plenty of time.
