I knew in 2010 when I first came to wellington beach as a volunteer for the New Hampshire park system I would have to come back someday. I returned in 2014 this time not to work for the park, but to relax, and enjoy the scenery. The water is crystal clear, wonderful view, family friendly, and relatively quiet. there are... More

a great hike. Takes about an hour to 90 minutes if you want to stop and enjoy the sites. It's a bit rocky in patches but we hiked with an 87 year old and a younger partially disabled hiker.

Seriously, great for families. clean guarded beach snack bar and commercial mark star grills for cooking and smoores. Hit Shacket's store for supplies on way to lake and just relax. I think its still only $3 /head. Carry in carrry out. changing rooms on site.

More surprisingly, we were able to get a picnic table right next to the sandy beach. The changing area and bathrooms were sufficiently... More

The water here is the greatest and clearest I have had the pleasure of enjoying. The sand is great and the picnic sites are plentiful. The scenery around the lake and park is just plain fantastic. Plenty for the kids to do and just plain a great adventure.
