New Hampshire is a fine place for swimming, in the ocean or at fresh water lakes

Swimming in New Hampshire ranges from doing the crawl through ocean waves off the state's beaches on the Atlantic to gliding through the clear fresh waters of a lake, river, or pond to the north and west. Plenty of state and local parks have beaches and swimming facilities. Where some family members like to go swimming, others may enjoy fishing at many locations with convenient boat ramps. Get your lodging near the water!
