Brook, with nearly 10,000 acres, is the largest developed state park in
New Hampshire. Located in the southeast region of the state, there is
plenty to do and see for everyone. Hiking, biking, swimming and fishing
are a few of the favorites. Forty miles of trails through the heavily
forested park, leading to seldom visited marshes, bogs, summits and
ponds, offer a variety of options for hikers, mountain bikers and
equestrians. Canoe rentals are available at both Beaver and Catamount
Ponds, while rowboat rentals are also available at Beaver Pond.
Fly-fishing enthusiasts will be pleased to know Archery Pond welcomes
their speciality and is universally accessible. Across the road from
Archery Pond is a special little pond just for children under twelve to
fish. If archery is your sport you might already know that Bear Brook
boasts two archery ranges. One 15-target range is maintained by the
N.H. Fish and Game Department, plus an additional 4-target practice
range that is universally accessible. (Bring your own archery
equipment.) Worried about no workouts or aerobics while on vacation?
You can stay in shape by using the park's 1-1/4 mile, 20-station
fitness course that is fun for the whole family. In addition, Bear Hill
4-H camp is located within the park. A day-use fee is collected at the
toll booth near Catamount Pond: Admission is $3 for adults; $1 for
children ages 6-11; children ages 5 and under and NH residents age 65
and over are admitted free.
