Staying overnight at the ACA Camp at Lake Sebago
What We Offer
Four rustic cabins and a primitive ground tent site are available for ACA members’ use for up to three continuous weeks in the ACA camp at Lake Sebago in Harriman State Park. The rental season is from May 1 through October 15, 2023. Rentals can be booked through our online booking system.
The cabins are: Lakeside (505), Overlook (518), Bliss (523) and Hilltop Lodge (501). Each cabin has electricity, a refrigerator, a cooking stove, microwave, toaster oven, coffee maker, table and chairs, dishes, pots and pans, cleaning supplies, tableware, screened windows and beds (no bedding).

We also have a primitive tent site that can be reserved for ground tenting. There is a fire pit and a picnic table (no electricity).
The camp provides two separate restrooms with flush toilets. One restroom has hot water and showers. There is a swimming dock, boat-launching areas, hiking on marked trails, and fishing with a NYS fishing license for all sixteen years and older. Dishes may be washed at the small restroom, and at no other place in camp.

For all cabins there is a minimum rental of 7 nights, from Monday to Monday, from June 26 to August 27. However, if a cabin is not rented by Tuesday of any given week, shorter rentals will be considered for the balance of that week at the single night rate noted above. Please email Alana Miller at [email protected] for more information about this option as shorter time periods cannot be booked through the website.
The cabin rental rates listed above are IN ADDITION to your ACA membership and camp fees. You are responsible for following all camp and rental cabin rules and including payment of daily camp fees or having a season pass for everyone in your group, including guests and visitors. A full listing of all camp and rental cabin rules will be provided to you when your reservation is confirmed. According to the park rules, you are not allowed to bring pets into the camp. Once a rental is approved you can cancel with a full refund up to 30 days prior to the start of your rental. Within 30 days the rental is non-refundable unless there are extenuating circumstances. Note: each ACA member and their household may have only three separate bookings at any one time and no more than 2 reservations open in a 30-day period in order to ensure that as many members can have access to the cabins. Exceptions may be considered in connection with Camp-sponsored events.
An ACA member may share their cabin with ACA members and non-ACA members and are required to be be present in camp at all times when guests are using the rental facility. The ACA member who invites a guest to stay in their cabin is responsible for ensuring payment of all applicable daily use fees.
Eligibility & Time
Only a current Atlantic Division adult member twenty-one years and older may rent a cabin up to a limit of three continuous weeks. Each ACA member and their household may have only three separate reservations open at any given time and no more than two in any 30-day period in order to ensure that as many members can have access to the cabins. Note: Exceptions may be considered in connection with Camp-sponsored events.
The minimum period is one week from June 26th through August 27th. The weekly rental period is from Monday at 5 pm through the following Monday at 9 am. Cabins will be cleaned between rentals by a professional cleaning company so it is imperative that you check out by 9:00 am on Monday morning.
All individuals staying in rental cabins are required to sign waivers. Waivers must be signed electronically before your stay or on arrival in camp. See the Camp Director on arrival if you need to sign a waiver.
How to Book
Our online system allows you to see what dates are available and to register and pay online. Each facility has a separate page where you will find a calendar that shows current availability. The dates are color-coded and will either be “available,” “booked” or “pending.” If it shows as available, click on the first and last day that you wish to rent. Note: the rental rules in place are loaded into the calendar meaning that if there is a 2-day, 3-day or 7-day minimum rental period, the calendar will not let you book a shorter period. If you are interested in renting for less than the minimum, contact the Sebago registrar, Alana Miller at [email protected] to determine if your request is possible and to book offline.
If the calendar is showing as pending, that means that someone else has requested those dates and their booking is being reviewed. If there is a date that you want that is not available to book, email registrar Alana Miller to let her know in case there is a cancellation.
Please make note of membership cost and camp fees before you make your reservation. ACA membership, daily fees and guest fees are not included in the rental amounts listed on this page. Camp fees can add up quickly, especially if you plan to invite many guests to visit or stay with you. When you make a reservation, you are promising to pay the appropriate fees for your whole party and all your guests.
Daily Use Fees
All daily fees for rental cabins renters must be paid in advance. Following confirmation of your rental, you will receive an invoice with a link to PayPal from the Camp Director if you do not have a season pass. Confirmation of these payments must be received before your rental begins. Your reservation will be cancelled if you do not pay camp fees before you visit camp.
Renters are expected to clean their cabin including washing all dishes and removing trash prior to departure. Due to Covid 19, we have also hired a professional service that will clean the cabins on Mondays in between weekly rentals. However, in the low season where cabins can be rented for a shorter period of time, there may be situations where the cabin has not been professionally cleaned following the previous renters’ departure. In these instances, there will be cleaning supplies provided, but you may wish to clean the cabin upon your arrival.
