Newfound Lake is one of the cleanest large lakes in the world, the lake is cherished by residents and visitors alike. In the past it was called Pasquanney (the Native American name for the lake), Berea, Onaway and others. The lake is 4106 acres at an elevation of 587 feet. The maximum depth of 183 feet produces some of the best Lake Trout, Rainbow Trout, Salmon and Smallmouth Bass fishing in the NH Lakes Region. You can launch your boat or visit the beach at Wellington State Park.
Newfound Lake is the third largest of the lakes and has proven especially popular because of its tranquil and unspoiled surroundings. This glacial lake is surrounded by mountains and is fed by natural spring water.
There are four towns on the shoreline of Newfound Lake - Alexandria, Bridgewater, Bristol, and Hebron; Bristol being the most populous but still with only 3,000 regular residents.
