Nice state park with a very cool fire tower. Check out the brass plaque showing all the mountains in your view. It looks like a sundial.

Small state park off highway 3 south of Lancaster. Drive up the 1 1/2 mile road to the top. At the top is a Visitor's Center/museum and a fire tower. Views from the top of the tower are spectacular!

We often camp in the White Mountains and were looking for a change of scenery and noticed Weeks State Park on the map. What a nice surprise ! You can drive to the mountain top on a paved road. There are a couple of places...More

Visit to the top with the fire tower was beautiful. Loved the sun dial to demonstrate all the mountains around. We hiked the loop trail and saw how they harvest maple syrup. Lots of foliage and plenty of different kinds of mushrooms.

I live in the area and never tire coming to Weeks State Park. If you don't feel like the hike, then grab a pizza in Whitefield or Lancaster, take the drive up the mountain, and have dinner with a view. Check out their weekly Thursday...More

It's worth the hike to the top, believe me! What a view! Everything was closed at this time of year, but you could walk the 1.5 miles to the top instead of drive. There are plenty of places to stop and rest. Well worth it!

We drove up as we were short on time. The views from the fire tower on top are great. A good hike if you have the time.

We will be at Lancaster for a few days the end of June. We're looking for suggestions on places to stay in the area. We will spending some time at Weeks State Park, which appears to be a couple miles south of town.

I was hoping someone more int he area would reply to you, but since they haven't I'll give it a shot. First off, what brings you to Lancaster and Weeks SP? In particular, are you trying to remain in Lancaster, say for family or other very local focus? Lancaster is a busy town for the sparse North Country, but essentially not very big. A small downtown with a lot of locally owned shops and a few low end chain stores. Also, the towns in rural NH are much closer together than say rural MN. The...More
