Tall, graceful trees form a cathedral over the road on your Sunday drive. A canoe floats black against the orange sunset outside your New England hotel. You sit at beside the fire, enjoying a burger and a cold drink, along with the distant strum of a guitar. If this spells “vacation” to you, you’ve found a paradise on Newfound Lake. Eight springs feed Newfound Lake, which earns it the title of “most pristine” lake in the state. While Newfound is smaller and less visited than Lake Winnipesaukee or Squam Lake, it’s a beautiful escape with wonderful spots for boating, fishing, and hiking.
Wellington Beach is the largest freshwater beach in the state, and Sculptured Rocks Natural Area in Groton is a fun natural escape for hot summer days.
It’s all about simple joys, stripping away the busy, and returning to the essence of lake culture at Newfound Lake.
