Corcoran's Pond at Waterville Valley, NH 

Corcoran's Pond, located in the heart of Waterville Valley, is the place to take a dip, relax with a book on the sandy beach, or maybe take a paddle around the pond. Canoes, kayaks, and paddle boats are all available for rental right at the dock in Town Square. The mountain-spring-fed pond is small but lovely, and manageable for all ages and abilities of paddlers. Note that there is no lifeguard on duty. The good news is, snacks and bathrooms are available right next door at Town Square if the kids get antsy.
