Great state park for family to enjoy. Nice set up of picnic tables and grills, some are more private so you can stay away from the crowds. Go look for them by the beginning of the nature trail. Cleanest lake water around. Get there early.

Stunning, gorgeous location on one of the nicest lakes in America. Pristine glacier water with an expansive beach area. Nice, clean bath houses. Tremendous spot for a day at the beach.

The beach was peaceful and no one disturbed us, but there was a lot of litter that I was concerned my 2 yr old would try to get into. Not very clean for a state Park, but we did have a relaxing time.

My wife and I went to this park on our honey moon as we visited New Hampshire. Wellington State Park is a very nice little state park. It has a spectacular--seriously spectacular beach on Newfound lake with incredible views of the surrounding mountains. Tall pine...More

You can't go wrong going here. Water is always clean and clear. Big swimming area. And also a deeper swim area for doing laps. Long beach. Trees for shade. Grills and tables for picnics or you can buy something at the snack bar.
