Overview

Coleman State Park lies on the shore of Little Diamond Pond in Stewartstown, twelve miles east of Colebrook in New Hampshire's remote north country. The excellent trout fishing in Little Diamond Pond and nearby streams makes Coleman an excellent location for fishing enthusiasts. A boat launch is located within the park; small boats are permitted, but speed is restricted. The park is also a good base for fall hunting. Other activities include hiking, canoeing, snowmobiling, and cross country skiing. Pets are allowed at the park but must be leashed at all times. The park is the northern terminus of the Androscoggin Trail, a hiking path that extends 55 miles south to Berlin.

The primitive campground, open from mid-May through late-October, offers 24 campsites. Many of the sites can accommodate most camping equipment including self-contained recreational vehicles with a maximum length of 35 feet; hookups are not available. Modern toilets, playground and a dump station are available.
