New Hampshire Parks Visitor Reviews
5/28/2012 11:35:38 AM Clough State Park by Norm
Lack of funds - My two sons worked there. They lack equipment due to budget cuts. This park has flooded twice over the last few years causing the bathroom or lack of issues. They all worked hard the last few years cleaning brush and mowing with the resources provided. It was and could be once again a very nice park. We use to take our kids when they were younger.
one of the greatest lake - my wife and our 3 kids camped here for 3 nights in summer of 2011. The white lake was so cleaned and warm, a perfect place for kids to swimm and watch the sun sets/rises over the mountains. The boat rental clerk, a w/m in the 60s, is very cocky and restrictive by the park rules. My wife and 3 kids were not allowed to rent a row boat for 4-adults as we were allowed in other parks. Instead, we had to rent a giant doubled-roar aluminum boat that exhausted most of our energy. People here seem to be very conservative and naive. The camps are full of rowdy people on the weekend. The camp is very close to Route 16 that you can hear cars passing by all night long.

- I must agree with the last posting. I visit many of NH State Parks during the Summer and this one by far is the most run down. Although the water appeared clean it was the only thing in the park that was worth being there for. It is sad that we pay $$ to enter but it is obviously not going towards the park.

not a park! / looks like a park - The white mountain National Forest is not a national Park. It is a working forest administered by the Forest Service, a subgroup of the US dept of Agriculture. As such they manage the forest on the basis of multiple uses and a sustained yield of timber. Timber harvests are part of the management edict.

donate to your state parks - I was very upset by the state if this park. I had not been here for years and decided to try it .. Wow rundown would be polite .. No bathroom ..portapotties ..bathhouses faling apart .. Picnic tables rotting ...just bad the state should fix it or close it .. As I feel I should get my 4 dollars back ..
7/23/2010 Wellington State Park by RJD, Manchester
Still our favorite. - Moved to Nh, 1989 and after all these years Newfound still our favorite. Our children are now enjoying Wellington w/ their children.
Most unfriendly welcome ever recorded - No reason to stop here. Hungry pit bulls have better people skills than the folks that run this operation. Ruined my day.
