Clough State Park

Keeping Your Planet in Mind with Your Group


Celebrating 88 years of preserving state land, NH State Parks are some of the best places for eco-traveling adventurers.

New Hampshire ranks second for lowest air pollution in the United States, making our jobs of displaying its unfiltered beauty in every season easy. For folks new to eco-friendly travel or just looking for sustainable ways to enjoy state parks, NH State Parks presents a list of eco-friendly trips and activities throughout the state. While visiting any of our 93 parks, it’s a good idea to practice the 7 principles of Leave No Trace, to help the Parks Division protect our lands for generations of future visitors.
As a loose guideline, finding a new point of view from busier, commonly-known areas, is often a more eco-friendly option for trip takers and recreators. All of the parks mentioned below are less visited parks with the best options for eco-friendly activities.
