Adventure Description

Adventure Description


Umbagog Lake State Park is located at the southern end of Umbagog Lake in New Hampshire’s Great North Woods region. It is home to a 60-campsite campground, 33 of which are primitive, remote sites that may only be reached by boat. In addition, there are three cabins available at the main campground and four remote cabins out on the lake. The small campground has flush toilets, showers, and drinking water, and some sites have views of the lake.  When the water temperature warms up, there is a small swimming beach with an open view of this remarkable landscape.

Much of Umbagog Lake is either surrounded by Umbagog Lake State Park property, where the remote campsites are located, or is part of the Umbagog Lake National Wildlife Refuge. It is common to see moose, deer, loons, and eagles in this area, so bring binoculars if you have them! There are very few hiking trails around the lake, so sightseeing and wildlife viewing is typically done from the water. The state park rents canoes, kayaks, and rowboats to help get you out there, and it sells fuel for motorboats. A boat ramp and docks provide easy access to the water, and Umbagog Lake is a fantastic place for fishing.
