Lake Tarleton State Park
Lake Tarleton State Park is a 48-acre undeveloped park and is easy to find. Lake Tarleton, at 315 acres, offers an unguarded swimming beach and opportunities for fishing and hunting in season. A N.H. Fish and Game boat launch is available less than a quarter mile from the park. Bring a blanket for picnicking in spectacular surroundings - the higher elevation of the park offers beautiful views of the White Mountain National Forest across the lake.
This park is always open for recreation unless closed or restricted by posting. During the off-season the park is typically not staffed and comfort stations are not available.
The off-season poses unique risks inherent when participating in outdoor recreational activities. Please be aware that many State Park areas and trails are not staffed during the off-season, and day-use fees are not collected. Recreationists should possess the necessary knowledge, skill, and equipment to ensure their own safety. Users assume all risk while recreating in State Park lands.
Are pets allowed at Lake Tarleton State Park?
