Maintaining the safety of our visitors and our staff is a top priority for New Hampshire Division of Parks and Recreation.

Day-Use Reservations are highly encouraged

Make a Day-Use Reservation:
We highly encourage visitors to make an advance day use reservation. Many day use parks fill quickly on weekends.

Parks Plate or Season Pass Holders: We are axpanding the availability of walk in parking spaces for Park's Plate, special category visitors and season passs holders. Visitors with pre-paid or discounted access are still encouraged to make an online reservation. When making a reservation you can indicate that you are a pass/parks plate holder and you will not be charged the day-use/parking fee. However there will still be a $1 transaction fee for using the online reservation system.

Additional Information

State of New Hampshire Corona Virus Updates:
We encourage New Hampshire residents and visitors to review information provided by the New Hampshire Department of Health and Human Services as it relates to the virus. We know our guests are interested in our efforts to help keep your family healthy.

We recognize the importance nature has in helping to relieve stress during this time and are committed to ensuring our guests and staff continue to have a safe and memorable experience at our state parks. While every individual must make decisions based on their own health, willingness to take on risk, and recommendations and mandates from local, state and federal governments, at the moment, being outdoors and isolated (dispersed recreation) meets “social distancing” recommendations.
If you see something in a park that needs attention, please notify a staff member. If you have additional questions or suggestions for us, please send them to
