Fresh water swimming, hiking, boat launch, picnicking, beautiful lake and island views
Wellington State Park has a large swimming beach on Newfound Lake, one of the clearest and deepest lakes in New Hampshire. Next to the park is a boat launch managed by N.H. Fish & Game. This launch allows year-round access to Newfound Lake and access to the park. The park has beautiful views, a snack concession, volleyball and horseshoe courts. Pets are permitted at the boat access area only. Kayak rentals
are available at the park store.
Hiking trails are found inside and outside the park. A peninsula nature trail has picnic grove, designated fishing areas, and plant identifications. One hiking trail from the park leads to Goose Pond, the Sugarloafs, Bear Mountain, Welton Falls, and Mount Cardigan. Park is staffed from late May to mid-October.
Because this park's beach is very popular in warm weather, the beach will most likely sell out in the morning. Once the beach area reaches capacity more people may not be admitted, for safety reasons.
Admission is adults, $5; children, $2.
