Newfound Lake, New Hampshire – In my New England travels, I always seem to forget about Wellington State Park located on Newfound Lake in Bristol, New Hampshire. The park can be accessed year around, and there is a sandy beach on the park grounds. No question the summer season is the busiest time to visit.

I have photographed Wellington State Park during all four seasons and think it is a wonderful place to spend the day with family or friends. And if you are a photographer, you should find something to shoot.

During the winter months, snowmobilers (below) use Wellington State Park as a starting point for their adventures. Many will park and unload their snowmobiles at Wellington State Park and tour around and on the lake.

During the autumn months (below), the shore of the lake takes on an unforgettable look. The brilliant colors of autumn can be found everywhere! I think it is my favorite time to visit.

Paradise Point Nature Center in Hebron, New Hampshire is also located on Newfound Lake and is worth visiting. At the boat launch area (below) you will view a picture perfect cottage on a small island. Make sure you have your camera!
