The lake is named for the Sokokis Indians who traveled what is know as the old Sokokis Trail (now Route 5), which connected the Sokokis village of Pequawket (Fryeburg) to the tribe’s coastal encampment in what became Saco.

The Sokokis Lake Association was founded in 1956 “to serve the needs of property owners and those who use Sokokis Lake. Besides monitoring water quality, which is presently below average, and conducting invasive plant surveys and other services to benefit the lake, the SLA organizes an annual Labor Day social to celebrate the end of summer. Activities include a one mile swim, horseshoe tournament, canoe, paddleboat and kayak races, plus a Ski Team show and boat parade. The association happily supports the Ski Team.”
