Fodor's Review

Families enjoy this secluded park that spans 600 feet along the southwestern shore of Lake Winnipesaukee, offering views of the Sandwich and Ossipee mountains. It's never crowded, and its shallow beach is safe for small children. The park has sheltered picnic tables and a small campground. Amenities: parking (no fee); toilets. Best for: solitude; swimming.
