Rhododendron State Park Bloom Report

 

July 26, 2013 Update

 
As was reported here last week, the annual show at Rhododendron State Park is pretty much over for this year. There are a few blooms left scattered around the grove this week, and they will mostly be finished by next weekend. If you did not get the opportunity to visit the grove this year during bloom, check this website next year starting mid-June or so for the 2014 bloom reports.  And, if you would like to see the native rhododendrons in
Fitzwilliam, NH this year, the main gate at the entrance for the State Park will stay open until at least the end of October, depending on snowfall or other weather conditions. However, in the winter months, there is a smaller designated parking area in front of the closed gate. It is a beautiful place, with or without blooms. These last few years, however,  the mosquitoes there have been active into the Fall, so be prepared; take some insect repellant with you.

Sorry, folks-no pictures this week.

Thank you for your support of New Hampshire State Parks. We hope that you have a chance in the small window of opportunity this summer to view the rhododendrons in bloom. Regardless, as some of you may know by now, the Park is an enjoyable place to visit nearly any time of the year with many special features to be seen.
For any questions, comments, or concerns regarding Rhododendron State Park, please call Monadnock State Park at 603-532-8862.

Until next time,
