NOTE: Umbagog Lake basecamp campsites and cabins are closed for camping in 2017 while a new visitor’s center is constructed and the marina is renovated. Remote campsites are open for camping and guests will still check in at basecamp. We plan on working with the contractor to try and make selected basecamp sites and cabins open later in the season depending upon how construction progresses. Visit our Umbagog Campground Redevelopment webpage for construction updates and to subscribe to the project mailing list.

Looking to get away? Try the remote sites at Umbagog Lake State Park. The park offers 33 remote campsites and 4 remote cabins which provides access to the Umbagog Lake National Wildlife Refuge in Cambridge, NH. These remote sites and cabins offer a variety of wildlife viewing opportunities including loons, bald eagles, river otters and moose. It’s a great opportunity to explore and be with nature. The remote sites are accessible only by boat and transportation to your site is offered by park staff for a fee, or you can take your own boat. Canoe, kayak, and rowboat rentals are offered.
