Bow Lake is 1149 acres with an average depth of 10 feet and a maximum of 65 feet. The lake is mesotrophic with clear water. The lake is classified as a cold and warm-water fishery, with rainbow trout, brown trout, smallmouth bass, and white perch. 

This popular lake is one of the largest lakes in southern NH. It is an easy commute from Portsmouth or Manchester NH and about 1.5 hours from Boston. There are 7 islands and Bennett Island is my favorite with a Bald Eagles nest and Loons nesting to view from shore.  Loon Island, Long Island, Beech Island, Pine Island,  Rye Island, and  York Island are the others. 

Golf courses are close by and Antique Alley is located on Rt 4 in Northwood. You will find several antique stores and a great location to purchase granite counter tops. ( Bob’s Granite ).  Bow Lake Home - Bow Lake Homes for Sale

The lake has an active successful Loon nesting program with a man-made nest set in April, eagle sightings are common also.  

The lake has a mix of year-round homes and cottages. The location just north of Concord makes the lake a perfect setting to commute to work. To the north is Alton Bay home to the southern tip of Lake Winnipesaukee.   Camp Mi-Te-Na is located in the northwestern end of the lake.  The lake association is active in checking to make sure the lake is protected for future generations.  

Mount Major is just to the north one of the favorite hiking locations in NH along with Gunstock Ski Resort, a four-season resort.  One of my favorite activities is picking blueberries at the farm just located off North Barnstead Rd.
