Easy to make a reservation and beautiful drive to Echo Bluff State Park. The growns are well kept and new trees and grass are developing. Stayed in a suite in the log. The 2 bedroom had everything we needed. Dinner at the restaurant had a good variety to choose from. Took a hike on well marked paths. Definitely would go... More

when you just need to unwind this is a great place to take a short walk to take in the view of the bottom of the Notch.in the summer it is a good place to swim and you can rent canoes until late in the season. fishing is also allowed

This is a beautiful park with a lake surrounded by a rock bluff. In the fall, the trees are so colorful and reflect into the water for breath taking photos. There is swimming in the summer with lifeguards. There is also a nice large picnic area under line trees with picnic tables and grills. The bathroom and change house is... More

Another great short hike for our toddler -around a small lake, very cute. We were only there for less than 30 min however, so the price you pay to get in is not really worth it. We had paid to park by Diana's baths the day before and had planned daily hikes, but at those prices, daily hikes are not... More

I did not make it to the top. Felt unsure/unsafe. I fell trying to come down. Leg is not a pretty sight. Life Guard at entrance gate /ranger station did an... More

There are few beaches in the White Mountains. So, this beach is a real gem in the region. Echo Lake is at the almost north point of Franconia Notch. It has all the facilities you would expect at a state park. There is a bathhouse for changing, clean rest rooms, a snack bar, life guards and boat rentals. It is... More
