    This is a great state park to bing the kids to cool off on hot summer days. They have plenty of bathrooms and lots of shady spots with tables. The water isn't deep so toddlers can really enjoy the water. There are some bathrooms there. What I love is the grills that are free to use. If you like fishing swimming and great views, this is the place for you. It was under twenty dollars for seven of us. Three adults and four kids. Definitely coming back!!

    Spent a few hours with my fiance and her two daughters. They were attending a birthday party their friend had, so we took the opportunity to go out in the kayaks while they swam on the beach with their bday party friends. It was peaceful. Beautiful area. The boat ramp was a little aged but since they're just kayaks that was pretty irrelevant, lot of shallow areas and fallen branches/trees I wouldn't try to put anything bigger than a little flat bottom Jon boat in, which I saw a couple of, too. Anyways great time and would definitely go again.

    Beautiful, hidden gem of a state park with a beach and picnic tables situated next to gorgeous tall trees with a clean forest floor. The beach is great for enjoying a sunny day while taking in the relaxing panorama of a lake with forests and a dam on all sides. The lake is big enough to do some kayaking as well.

    So many years ago now used to bring our girls here all of the time. Time slipped away...An elder now widowed. Circumstance being what it is finds this country to core woman living middle of the city 5th floor apartment . Found myself remembering those days gone by. When feeling almost certain unable to breath borderline panic as so oft happens of late finds me making a beeline to this haunt my yesteryear. The backpack tunes little something to read and rocking chair. It calms me soothes soul. CSP has in no uncertain terms been huge enabling me maneuver seemingly impossible space i find myself. Isnt just the place either. The staff aside from performing their routine tasks as expected are grand ambassadors state of New Hampshire. Every one these youngsters ive encountered great attitudes respectful; decent kind individuals.. So grateful for this blessing Clough State Park and Staff.
