Great daytime getaway for the kids! Shoreline fishing is permitted. Picnic tables and barbecue area. Many portable toilets also available. Excellent views of the lake. Great for apartment dwellers with no yard! Tons of free parking.

I visited Lake Massabesic from the NH Audubon Center. Despite not being able to swim here it was so relaxing and a unique experience. Choose a nice day to visit and just relax by the water. Binoculars can be useful, too. Beware of snakes. I...More

The lake has been a focal point for generations, whether you explore it by small boat or just go for a picnic with the family. A good place to unwind in the early morning at sunrise or late evening at sunset.

Beautiful trails for hiking, snowshoeing, & mountain biking. Lots of beautiful views of the lake. A peaceful way to enjoy nature. Sunsets over the lake are serene.

Great place to go and relax anytime of year. Fish, picnic, hike, do your thing in this beautiful NH oasis. Pick up some food at Golden Rods up the street and enjoy it at the park

It is so peaceful and close to everything so you can stop by. The only drawback is that you cannot swim here.
