We spent half a day at this beautiful lake. Perfect for us and our two young children. Large parking lot, a booth where you pay a fee of a few dollars a person and get a hand stamp and then a short walk down to the beach. Beach was very clean and there is a lifeguard. As a mountain fed... More

The boat rentals is completely worth it. $20 for an hour is great. It is absolutely gorgeous. I loved my experience here and definitely recommend it!

This lake is positively serene! It is so clear and the setting is picturesque. We went in the spring and practically had the place to ourselves.

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.
