  • Another clean and enjoyable New Hampshire, State Park. We visited with our grandchildren/family... Very nice day. The water is very gradual in getting deep so GREAT for young children.  more »
  • Beautiful park and campground. Terrible staff and management. Our recent visit was a very strange camping experience. There seems to be an E-COLI problem with the Parks well. Campers are advised not to drink the water... When asked about this situation the park staff is very vague as to the problem and the fix. They have gallon bottles of water your allowed 2 per day. It seems to me that they are trying pretty hard to hide this problem. No offers of refund or discount or rain checks were offered. They acted like "No big deal"
  • Awesome beach, very fine sand, huge area for kids to swim. The water is super clear! Lots of grills, tables which is great for BBQ. Definitely one of our favorites! Going to be back for sure! BTW, it's super close to the Bank of NH Pavilion, so we stopped by at the Park before we went to see the concert 😉
  • Nice park. Beach is sand, in the lake it is a little rocky. Water is shallow, great for kids to play.
  • Good sized lake beach with a fantastic view of the surrounding mountains. The roped in swim area is a bit shallow, especially towards the right side of the beach, but otherwise quite enjoyable, especially on a hot day.
  • Best public lake in NH if you want to enjoy a beer and grill some food. Just don't bring any glass bottles!
