The boat launch area inside Sebago Lake State Park in Casco ME.

The ramp to Sebago Lake from the state park.


At Sebago Lake State Park beach and recreation area.


Now at the Songo Lock area.





When we came, the Songo dowstream doors are open and boats are exiting.


After the lock was emptied, a line of boats came in heading upstream.


Boats continue to fill in.





Now the Songo Lock is full with 3 lines of boats squeezed in.


Now the water in the Songo Lock is being raised to the same level as on the upstream side.


Water level now higher.


The guy is now opening the door fully manual.


The first boat out of the Songo Lock.


As the boats just out of the Songo Lock continues upstream, they must pass beside this temporarily rotated bridge. I watched the guy on the rotating bridge manually operate to rotate it.
