Echo Lake State Park is a great place to take the family for a swim and picnic. A scenic trail around the lake provides great views of sheer, 700-foot Cathedral Ledge which towers over the lake. A mile-long auto road and hiking trails lead to the top of Cathedral Ledge where views across the Saco River Valley to the White... More

Although it is early in the season and the beach was not officially open, it is a beautiful place. Due to the fact it was before the high season, it was a peaceful place to see. I am sure each season has it's merits.

Echo beach is a beautiful place to stop by and relax or take a swim at. The views of the mountains are nice and the area is nice and quiet.

With all the traffic of the North Conway area in the summer, there is a place that seems like it's worlds away....and it's only 10 min (without traffic) away from the main stretch. I found Echo Lake while exploring with friends in the mid 1980's. Have made several return trips since and it's always a great time. The low cost... More

Had the pleasure of taking our grandchildren to Echo Beach last Summer and when my husband and I were on vacation in North Conway a week ago, introduced him to the lake as well. You can see Cathedral ledge on the other side. Beautiful sandy beach perfect for children.

Great beach and excellent view of Cannon Mountain ski slopes and of Franconia Notch. Kids loved searching for crawfish in the stream.

We visited in July. Great area. Even on a hot day the water is very cold. Spring fed keeps it that way. Set in the White Mountains in Franconia Notch, this seems to be a good area to picnic by the water. Tables are nearby and a snack bar. It's worth a stop during your visit!

What a wonderful area this is and when I came upon Echo Lake Beach I was impressed. Clear, clean water and so refreshing. It is a very small and not crowded beach. I went off season so I am not sure how crowded it is in the middle of summer or the facilities as far as food and fees are... More
