How do I get my membership card?
Once you have purchased your annual membership you must present your receipt at the gatehouse (at your first visit) along with proof of Standish residency or business ownership. Receipts can be presented either in paper form or on your smart phone. You will be given a membership card at that time. After your first visit, you will be asked to present your membership card along with your proof of residency at each visit.

What if I only want a day pass?
Choose the day pass option below to purchase. Either print out your receipt or save on your smart phone. Present your receipt at the gatehouse along with proof of Standish residency.

NO OVERNIGHT PARKING. If the beach closes early due to inclement weather, the gate will be locked. If members park in our lot and go out on a boat for the day, it is the responsibility of the member to return in time to remove the vehicle before closure. Failure to return on time could result in a ticket as well as no access to the vehicle until the beach re-opens. Plan ahead and communicate with the beach attendants if you are leaving the facility by boat. It is not the responsibility of the beach attendant to track down guests who are parked in the lot after hours. 

No parking allowed on Newbegin Way or Harmons Beach Rd. Doing so may result in being towed at the owner's expense. Parking in the lot is permitted for Standish resident members of Rich Memorial Beach. Members of Sebago Boating Club are not considered members of Rich Memorial Beach and, therefore, access to the Rich Memorial Beach parking lot is not permitted.

Located at 100 Newbegin Way. From Sebago Lake Village at the corner of Rt. 114 & Rt. 35, travel north on Rt. 114 (Richville Rd.). Take a right onto Harmons Beach Rd. Take a right onto Newbegin Way. Follow Newbegin Way to the beach gate house and parking lot. No parking on roadway.
