My wife and I go boating on Newfound a few times each summer. As stated by others, it is exceptionally clean. It is a large lake and very deep but it doesn’t receive the traffic that Lake Winnipesaukee does. We put in at Wellington Beach State Park and for boaters, entry is free. If you intend to use the state... More

one of 2 cleanest lakes in USA. 182 feet deep and spring fed turning over every 6 months. Great for boating fun and swimming. perfect size. Other folks on lake are KIND! You don't run into jamokes like some of the bigger lakes.....see Lake Winnepeasakea.

It's big enough to go for a boat ride but not so big to attract the large wave causing boats. Exceptionally clean and we want to keep it that way.

Drove all around the West shore Rd enjoying the scenery. Stopped at Sculptured Rocks in Hebron ( a rocky gorge formation with waterfalls & pools.)

i grew up in bristol and looked forward every summer to going to the newfound lake. It is always clean and the sandy beach is perfect for kids. Wonderful place to visit if your in the area.

Newfound lake is gorgeous, surrounded by mountain views. The lake is spring fed and the water is crystal clear yet cool and refreshing. We kayaked into the sunset, it was awesome! Wellington State Park is beautiful with a generous beach area and a place to launch your boat!

Lake is beautiful and the area on the whole is really nice. Water is a bit cold at times for me since it's not what I'm use to but it is super refreshing and very very clean.

A beautiful lake, medium sized, with gorgeous mountain views all around. Yes there are jet skis, and it is busiest in July and August but this lake is handling it. Spring fed sources must be the reason why. For those not in love with colder water, it may not be the best choice. Not many go to places for restaurants... More

Thanks for a great marathon - little hilly but worth it for the views. The course ran around the lake with many views and the fall colors were starting to look good.

There are way too many jet skis and motor boats. Water is murky. kayaking at Audobon center was magnificent
