New Hampshire state parks welcome school groups to visit our parks anytime. With much to offer from swimming, to hiking, sight-seeing to historic adventures, there is sure to be fun had by all. We do request that you make your reservations at least two weeks prior to your visit to ensure that space is available at the park on your anticipated visit date.
New Hampshire School Groups can visit any park during the off-season for free. Our off season starts the date the park opens in the spring until June 20 and resumes after Labor Day through park closing. The adult to children ratio for this offer is 1:8. Any adult above this ratio must pay the regular admission fee for the park visited.
Out-of-State school groups can visit any day-use park at a reduced rate. Please call the park for further rate information and to schedule your visit.
All school groups who do not qualify for the NH Bus Pass Program (Make a hot link to the Bus Pass Program Page) wishing to visit the day-use parks during our peak season (June 21 - Labor Day) can qualify for the youth-group rate. Please call the park for further rate information and to schedule your visit.
For information on school groups wishing to visit the Flume Gorge or the Cannon Mountain Aerial Tramway, please contact the Group Coordinator for Franconia Notch State Park at 603-823-8800.
