DISCOVER THE PAST
Ossipee Lake and its extensive network of bays and rivers comprise one of northern New Hampshire’s most important recreational and economic resources. It’s an exceptional place for swimming, boating, fishing, and watching the stars at night.
Portions of the lake’s shoreline remain undeveloped and are home to endangered species, rare plants, and some of the finest remaining examples of habitats once common in New England. Surrounding areas abound in bogs, woodlands, and hiking trails. On these pages we celebrate the lake’s unique places and its rich history.
