“Lovely State Park for the Family”
Reviewed March 13, 2012

Probably the nicest state park in New Hampshire. Lovely setting, narrow but long beach (easy to keep an eye on the kids, who don't have to walk far from your blanket to get to the water). Across the street from the entrance you will find access to a decent hiking trail up a series of hills.

“Perfect spot on Newfound Lake”
Reviewed January 19, 2012

Newfound Lake has such clear waters. This is a great location to bring a crowd of people... clean facilities and pavilions, and a lot of shade. The beach itself can get rather crowded with tourists on the weekends, so I would recommend midweek or off time periods. There are also several trails within the park which are nice as well.

“Good Day trips...”
Reviewed December 27, 2011

Wellington State Park is situated on Newfound Lake in between Bristol and Hebron in Alexandria, NH on West Shore Road. It's a nice, Clean park offering boating access to the Lake, fishing, canoeing, and swimming in the States Cleanest lake. Views are spectacular with mountains and old homes surrounding the lake. There is a fee to enter but is well worth it.
