Echo Lake Beach

Echo Lake Beach at Franconia Notch State Park is the perfect place to take your students swimming, canoeing, and kayaking this summer. Whether it’s lounging on a beach towel on the sand, enjoying the gorgeous mountain views from a kayak, or just splashing around with friends, students will have a delightful day on our beautiful 28-acre lake! Fishing poles and bait are also available, and if the fish aren’t biting, Echo Lake has a convenient snack bar for students to indulge between a self-propelled pedal boat ride or a teacher-led canoe ride around the lake. The park also offers hiking trails, an aerial tramway, and so much more!
