On this trip we brought our boat to explore the 1st Connecticut Lake. There is a wonderful launch site and adjacent picnic area with lots of parking.

Been fishing this area for 21 yrs. Whatever your fishing style, this area has it all. Large lakes, small ponds and rivers. Trolling, fly fishing, casting or still fishing. No crowds-no waterskiers. Just fisherman.

Great place to Kayak! Sadly we didn't have as much luck fishing these lakes but we did have an amazing time taking the kayaks out that we rented from Lopstick.

If you want to enjoy nature in all its glory, the CT Lakes Region is the place to go. From all the lakes, rivers, streams and endless back roads. From fishing, hiking, mt. biking, atv/snowmobile trails. This is area is remote, but most beautiful.

We had never been this far north in New Hampshire. The area is completely rural. Most people go here for fishing and hiking, it seems. If you are looking to revel in spectacular, largely undisturbed nature, this is a wonderful destination.
