What happened to live free or die? We obviously didn't know pulling in, but at least they couldn't have been any more rude in explaining their policy to us.

The parking area is large, the beach is nice and the water is really clean with a nice sandy bottom.

Pack your cooler, bring the family and enjoy the sandy beach, picnic tables and shade trees. Newfound Lake is a gem and this state park allows you to BBQ and there is also a nice boat launch for a fee in addition to the park entry fee. Very excellent way to spend the day.

A nice place to see with the family. If you are visiting and want to spend a quite day some by the water, go to a State Park.

Wellington has a huge beach, picnic tables and grills, pavilions you can reserve, consessions and bathrooms. The view of Newfound Lake is outstanding and there are paths through the marsh area where you can pick blueberries in season. Weekends in summer can be crowded so come mid-week if you can.
