New Hampshire Train Along Lake Winnipesaukee
Reviewed August 21, 2012

If you're expecting something along the lines of Jones Beach on Long Island or Ocean City, Maryland, you'll be disappointed. But if you want a small, clean beach on Lake Winnapesaukee, a great place for families, this is the place. We were there for hours and the kids didn't want to leave. Adjacent park area with picnic tables. Only drawbacks are that the lifeguards leave at 5pm and the bathhouse could have been cleaner. Otherwise, a great way to relax and cool off while road tripping through New Hampshire

I have lived in NH over 30 years and it is always a treat to visit this small beach area. If you are not from the area, you may be disappointed because the beach is so tiny. It is great for a family reunion because there are so many things to do as a family without worrying about things. This is right on Lake Winnipesaukee so you can't beat the gorgeous view. You can watch the boats come in and out. The water is a comfortable temperature in August and is very clean. It actually looks like they sweep the bottom where the sand is. There are a few shaded areas so you can choose to be in the sun or sit on a picnic table. The downtown is cute and there are a few restaurants within walking distance. There is also a water slide, drive-in and a few miniature golf courses. New Hampshire is such a beautiful state, especially here, but I am a little biased!!

Being a former Jersey boy I guess I was expecting the Jersey shore. Boy was I disappointed! We drove about an hour from our campground through the beautiful NH countryside. We were looking forward to having a good time "walking the boards." But there is no "there" there.

The beach is quite pretty, but the "town" is shabby with little variety of things to do. We paid for 2 hours in the meter and left after 30 minutes. Oh, well. At least we enjoyed the ride.

This is a lovely beach, within walking distance of Pizza, Ice Cream, arcades, a few shops, cruise boats and restaurants. There are shady, grassy areas as well as a sandy beach. Modern restrooms/changing areas are open and lifeguards are on duty.
