Overview

New Hampshire's Lake Tarleton State Park, a 48-acre undeveloped park, is a rare opportunity to really experience nature untouched with an unguarded swimming beach, fishing, and hunting. Less than a quarter mile from the park, a New Hampshire Fish and Game boat launch is available for use in the 315-acre lake. Visitors can enjoy fishing in the vast Lake Tarleton from the shore, or by boat, as well as canoeing and kayaking. Hunting in season is allowed in the acres of forest surrounding the lake. Visitors are encouraged to bring a blanket for picnicking in the park's spectacular surroundings; the higher elevation of the park offers beautiful views of the White Mountain National Forest across the lake. Lake Tarleton State Park is unstaffed, and it is open to the public year-round at no charge. There is parking available at the park.
