Directions to Frye Island
Frye Island is located about three hours north of Boston, MA in the State of Maine. The lake in the center of the map below is Sebago Lake, about 45 minutes from the Westbrook area - a western suburb of Portland, ME. Frye Island is in the lower center portion of Sebago, just off of the Raymond Neck peninsula. See the steps below for detailed driving instructions.
Directions from the Boston Area:
Take Interstate 95 (I-95) north from Boston, MA. A short distance into Maine I-95 turns into the Maine Turnpike. Continue north on the Maine Turnpike.
Exit the Maine Turnpike (I-95) at Exit #48.
Turn right at the stop light immediately after leaving the toll booth. You are now on Riverside Street. Continue on Riverside Street for 1.5 miles. (it is the road that parallels I-95, but at such a distance you will lose sight of the Interstate.)
At a stop light, turn left on State Route 302. Continue west on Route 302 for 18 miles.
Watch for a view of Sebago Lake on the left (just after passing two gas stations on each side of the road in Raymond). At the top of one of the hills will be Hilltop Market on the right. The next turn will be coming up soon on the downhill (directly across from a street light).
Turn left onto Hawthorne Road; continue for 0.5 miles. You are now entering a section of land referred to as Raymond Neck. It is the finger of land sticking down into the water on the above map Raymond Cape is at the end of the finger.
Turn left onto Cape Road; go for 4.6 miles.
Turn right onto Frye Island Ferry Road; continue to the Ferry landing stop sign. The Ferry typically runs on the hour and on the half hour (every 15 minutes during peak summer periods). More details on the Ferry schedule are available.
If you don't have a ticket in advance from a property owner, you can purchase a ticket from the Ferry mate prior to boarding the Ferry. There are restrictions to commercial vehicles during peak weekend periods; give the office a call (207-655-4258) if you have questions.
