I went kayaking with a group on Lake Massabesic for about 2 and 1/2 hours. It was pretty and nice and clean looking. There weren't many boats, mostly kayaks on the water. We did see one loon and I was told that there's also a...More
If you are looking to do something uniquely different in Manchester, NH: Head to Lake Massabesic after calling Mike at Massabesic Canoe and Kayak (114 Raymond Rd., Auburn, NH) to reserve your vessel of choice. We had never been canoeing before but ended up spending...More
Great daytime getaway for the kids! Shoreline fishing is permitted. Picnic tables and barbecue area. Many portable toilets also available. Excellent views of the lake. Great for apartment dwellers with no yard! Tons of free parking.
We live very close to this place. So we are able to stop by often. Even though you can not swim here at all it is still entertaining. They have sailboat races in the spring, summer, and fall. The trails are wide and dog friendly....More
I visited Lake Massabesic from the NH Audubon Center. Despite not being able to swim here it was so relaxing and a unique experience. Choose a nice day to visit and just relax by the water. Binoculars can be useful, too. Beware of snakes. I...More
The lake has been a focal point for generations, whether you explore it by small boat or just go for a picnic with the family. A good place to unwind in the early morning at sunrise or late evening at sunset.
A favorite place for me to go to collect my thoughts, watch for eagles and other birds and watch sailboats when they're out. I have to say that posted hours are 8AM-8PM and there have been quite a few mornings where DPW has not arrived...More

Scott: There are at least 2 boat ramps that I know of.Both are located in Auburn at opposite sides of the lake.( Rattlesnake Island) just over the bridge about 1-2 miles from the rotary in Manchester near the main entry to the picnic area.The other is about one tenth mile from 4 way intersection near general store in Auburn. I also know of one that is for one vehicle only about one quarter mile from Sandy's Variety on right side of road.

That is a good idea, I had bought a pair of wading boots to get my boats in/out of the water and getting into/out of the boots in the boat was one serious exercise that in the 2 man kayak, risked capsizing and in the 1 man boat was impossible. I would have to wait until the Water Police were out of sight to launch/land my and my family's boats. Now I don't even go there anymore, too many bad experiences getting ticketed.
