  • We were looking for somewhere close to where we were staying and not too strenuous. Lots of nice wide, flat trails. Peaceful and serene.  more »
  • I drove above at night and with the moon out it was an exquisite sight. The lake with the misty mountains and moon above was sublime.  more »
  • We parked by The Cathedral and hiked about 1/2 mile to the lake. The lake is about a mile around. It's a level, well packed path. The day we went was 55 degrees and a little foggy. The views were ethe...  more »

  • My family visited for the first time this past weekend. We did a little hike and then spent the afternoon at the lake. It was beautiful. Clean and peaceful. My two boys had a blast swimming and finding tadpoles. The only reason I didn't give it a fifth star is because they don't have food vendors. We visit from out of state and can't easily pack lunch. All in all, we enjoyed the park and will return again next time we are in NH.
  • The scenery here is beautiful. Gorgeous views of White Horse Ledge and Cathedral Ledge. There are lifeguards on duty, so feel safe swimming in the lake. There are nice walking trails in the area. It is an easy 1 mile around the lake and there is a mid level trail that heads up to the top of Cathedral Ledge. Overall, this is a great area to spend some time with the family on vacation.
  • Nice place to bring kids, there's some opportunity to get away from the crowd if you are willing to have less manicured beach. Lots of tadpoles.
  • Family friendly beach with an amazing backdrop. Swim in the warm water; relax on the sandy beach; watch climbers scurry up Cathedral Ledge; take advantage of picnic tables; walk the trail around the lake; or, do them all! It's a pack in/pack out place with no concessions, so plan accordingly...
  • Nice trails and beach. The climb to Cathedral Ledge and White Horse ledge was a lot of fun, though much steeper than we realized when we first started off. Taking the trail from the white horse trail head is a longer walk, but much less steep. We ended up taking the steep route up cathedral then went the steep route to white house and then took the easy route down.
