Activities and Amenities


Bedell Bridge State Park is a 74-acre park located along the Connecticut River. The park was the site of a historic two-span covered bridge, the second longest in the country. The covered Burr Truss bridge, which connected New Hampshire to Vermont, was destroyed by wind in 1979 and is no longer there. Burr Truss or Burr Arch—is a combination of an arch and a multiple kingpost truss design.
A Fish and Game boat launch is located within the park.

    Nice little park, didn't stay long. Hoped there'd be some hiking trails.

    Lovely spot on the river. Short walking trail. Mainly looks like a boat launching area.

    This is where a memorial is for a young boy that was killed in North Haverhill New Hampshire. David Smith. There is also a historical marker here for the bridge.

    A boat ramp with good parking for trailers and a few car top carriers. A short mowed nature trail with out any interpretation. Several picnic tables. No toilet or trash! Dirt road that's pretty rutted. If you aren't putting a boat in the river I'm not sure why you would go there.

    Beautiful trails and a great launch. Always plenty of space to park with a trailer or otherwise.
