Clark's Trading Post, Lincoln

4.4
Nestled in the mountains of New Hampshire, Clark's Trading Post give visitors the chance to ride along a classic railroad and explore a quirky collection of historically significant machinery and knick-knacks. From the main building, hop on a train pulled by a steam locomotive and ride the 2 km (1.25 mi) standard-gauge loop through the woods and across a vintage covered bridge. You might even see the park's most bizarre resident, known as the Wolfman. You'll find that the complex's famous trained bears are quite talented, and you can watch their skills on display during a show. Afterward, wander the park's other themed areas like the turtle house, or try your hand at riding a Segway scooter.

  • Such a great park for families with young children! Our daughter is almost 2 and absolutely loved it here! Knowing the bears have a separate habitat and are treated well and stimulated often really helps make this place even more special.
  • I love the town of Lincoln NH in general. It is a beautiful place and this was just another reason to travel over there. The bear shows are pretty impressive and cute. This place is especially nice for children..
  • Great family fun. Not expensive and is a classic good time . A place your children will want to bring their children in the future. The shows are amazing and who doesn't love a train ride with a show.
  • Lovely family owned attraction that's been around for generations. I came here in the 60s with my mom and I ve brought my kids. Something for all ages. Well kept and clean.
  • Fun for the kids. The shows were good. I thought there would be more rides, but that's ok. Rock climbing wall was fun. Husband had fun trying the segway out. It was a leisurely day.
