This is a beautiful park with a lake surrounded by a rock bluff. In the fall, the trees are so colorful and reflect into the water for breath taking photos. There is swimming in the summer with lifeguards. There is also a nice large picnic area under line trees with picnic tables and grills. The bathroom and change house is... More

Another great short hike for our toddler -around a small lake, very cute. We were only there for less than 30 min however, so the price you pay to get in is not really worth it. We had paid to park by Diana's baths the day before and had planned daily hikes, but at those prices, daily hikes are not... More

I did not make it to the top. Felt unsure/unsafe. I fell trying to come down. Leg is not a pretty sight. Life Guard at entrance gate /ranger station did an... More

There are few beaches in the White Mountains. So, this beach is a real gem in the region. Echo Lake is at the almost north point of Franconia Notch. It has all the facilities you would expect at a state park. There is a bathhouse for changing, clean rest rooms, a snack bar, life guards and boat rentals. It is... More

Great place to take kids to swim. Swimming area is roped off with life guards. Picnic area with picnic table and grills. Shaded real well. Lake also can accommodate kayaks or canoes.

Nice Little Lake in NH. Just stopped by to have a quick look around. Lovely location to spend with family or with your partner. Water is clean and pretty warm (In August).

Nice place to spend your day or at least part of it. Clean, picnic tables and grills, changing rooms. Only part is the graded hill to get to the beach. Tough if you have a lot of stuff to carry.
