Ossipee River Rope Swing

This is just a rope swing on the Ossippee river that we noticed. There is a short dirt turn around on Route 25, and there are no signs saying you can’t swim, but we don’t know who owns the land.  There was a trash back tied to a tree, and a group of swimmers left […]

Lower Falls

This is a very popular rest stop swimming area, and it will likely be crowded, so it is a good idea to arrive early.  We were here at 1pm on a Monday and cars were lining the road.  There is a large parking area and a sign for “Lower Falls,” and we thought it was […]

Limington Rapids Rest Area

This park is off of Route 25 and you’ll see a wooden sign marked “Rest Area” just before the town line of Standish.  It is more extensive than most rest areas, with picnic spots in the woods, and a wooden bridge leading to a rock “island” on the Saco River. This is listed elsewhere as […]

Lady’s Bathtub

This is sort of a strange location because you are allowed to be here, and the town of Lincoln grants access, but the entrance is within the Riverfront Condominium complex.  So when you are in the complex, you’ll see a lot of “No Trespassing” and “Private Property” signs, but if you use the entrance on […]

Hancock Campground

Look for the “White Mountain State Forest” sign for “Hancock Campground,” and park in the lot. Walk to site #47 and follow the small sign that says “River.”  Follow the trail for about 2 min. to a small embankment with a very short, steep hop down to the river. There is a beautiful fall flowing […]

Davis Park

This is an exceptional town park, with river swimming under a covered bridge.  The water is calm, and a lovely emerald green.  It is fairly deep in the middle, and there is a wide expanse of open water.  The area is bucolic and peaceful, and it would be a great place to bring a float.  There […]

Riverside Park

UPDATE- 5/5/18 we have been told that the park is now for residents only, and that the water area is private property.  Please respect these rules, and currently this park is not a good place to visit.  If this changes in the future, please let us know.   Previous: In Wentworth, NH, travel on Mt. […]

Livermore Falls

This amazing location has everything you could want in a swimming spot. Located on the Pemigewasset River, there are sandy beaches, flat rocks to lay on, rocks to jump off of, rope swings, waterfalls and deep clear water. There are two sandy beaches located here, one is above the waterfalls (our directions lead here) and […]

Big Eddy

There is a parking lot on Big Eddy Lane, by Swiftwater Covered Bridge.  There is a sign saying,”No Nude Bathing,” which indicates that swimming is allowed.  There is a beautiful waterfall, with pools above and below. The water level was probably low while we were here, but it was still gorgeous. Downstream is now “No […]

Baker River Bridge

This is the perfect roadside swimming hole.  There is a gorgeous waterfall with clear emerald water, and large sloping rocks.  The falls are by Route 118, with a parking area on the other side of a small wooden bridge.  There are multiple easy paths to water, and even some stone steps.  There is swimming under […]
