White Mountain NH Public Beaches & Swimming

new hampshire beaches swimming holes public swimmingSaco River
Bartlett, NH
Swim in the clean, cool Saco River. A nice spot to bring the kids. Roadside parking on River Street. Take Route 302 to Bartlett, turn left (if you are coming from North Conway) at River Street, and follow the road less than a mile to the Saco River. The swimming area is on the right-hand side. There is no lifeguard or facilities.

Echo Lake
Franconia, NH
Ph: 603-823-5563
You can swim in the 28 acre Echo Lake and enjoy the long wide beach area seven days a week from 10 AM to 6 PM. You can bring a picnic or grab a bite at the snack bar. The bathhouse is a convenient place to change out of your wet bathing suit.

Echo Lake State Park
Bartlett and Conway, NH
Ph: 603-356-2672
You won’t find a prettier place to swim than Echo Lake. Please note that this Echo Lake is separate from the one of the same name in Franconia Notch State Park. The beachfront on the lake is just right whether you have a toddler that loves to dig or a teen that’s perfecting a tan. Bring binoculars and watch the hardworking rock climbers on White Horse and Cathedral Ledges while you relax. Bring your own food if you want to picnic. Amenities include a vending machine for soft drinks and a bathhouse for changing clothes. The park is open from 9AM to 8PM from mid-June through Labor Day.

Franconia Notch State Park
Route 3
Lincoln and Franconia, NH
Ph: 603-823-8800
Franconia Notch State Park is located in the heart of the popular White Mountain National Forest. A notch is actually a gap in the mountains formed by the river and glacial erosive forces. Beautiful Echo Lake, at an elevation of 1931 feet, offers swimming, fishing, and small boat access, as well as views of Mt. Lafayette and Cannon Mountain. In a different watershed from Profile Lake, its waters flow westerly toward the Connecticut River.



Forest Lake State Beach
Dalton, NH
Ph: 603-837-9150


The cold water in this mountain lake will cool off the hottest hikers. You’ll enjoy 200 feet of swimming beach on Forest Lake along with the shady picnic grove. There’s a bathhouse for changing. The swimming season is mid-June through Labor Day from 9:30 AM to 6 PM.
