this is a lovely little spot for some photography especially with the little yellow boats moored by the beach. The only niggle I have is that the washrooms were locked.

They said they enjoyed the beach area. It was quiet and peaceful and the water was cold and refreshing.

This is a truly beautiful spot. We brought our toddler here for the hike around the lake, which was fabulous and perfect for little legs. We went back to swim another day and had a great time. Would definitely go back.

It should be opened - visited many places like this during off season. No barrier for site seeing - but the facilitators won't be there for any questions or help.

A Google search shows that Newfound Lake (183 feet deep) which is to the south of Echo Lake is the deepest lake in NH. Echo Lake is only 10 feet deep at the deepest part.
