Some of the best swimming in the White Mountain region can be found in 140-acre White Lake State Park. The park lies on the shore of White Lake. The park is open weekends only starting in late May, then daily from late June through early October. Visitors may rent kayaks, canoes, paddleboats, and rowboats.

Diana’s Baths is a mix of potholes, cascades, slides and small plunges along Lucy’s Brook, tumbling down Big Attitash Mountain. The attractive features of this area are the refreshing pools and potholes for swimming, with easy access to flat rock “beaches” for sunning and picnicking. During high water, the entire area can be engulfed with cascading water. During normal conditions, there is one major waterfall, a 20-foot plunge over granite.
The hike to Diana’s Baths is an easy half-mile. There is a large parking lot at the entrance to the path and a pay station. Visitor must buy and display a daily pass on the dashboard. Cost is $3 a day.
