Discover a world of lakes, woods and the wonders of summers past.

Have your kids ever heard their giggles carried miles across a shimmering lake? Their shouts of joy echoing against the walls of a granite mountain? Have they whispered their playful secrets into a seashell? When you bring your family to New Hampshire, natural wonders enhance the sounds of vacation joy and preserve them in your memory forever.

Whether you prefer cruising the Winnipesaukee aboard the historic M/S Mount Washington, taking a dip at the Ellacoya State Park beach in Gilford, angling for trout from the shores of Lake Winnisquam, or paddling Newfound's pristine depths, the call of the water is hard to resist.

Beyond the pristine lakes and idyllic ponds, New Hampshire offers water sports and activities for everyone. Jetski on the ocean, take a boat tour, hike to a waterfall or just relax and take in the beautiful water views.

Use the links on the left to find information about water access, public use and the many lakes and seacoast areas to explore.
