Bring family and friends to Lake James State Park for a variety of activities. Try swimming and sunbathing or enjoy a picnic along the lakeshore.

We drove their and the lot was full. So a park ranger told us to turn around.
So we did the lot was full but we turn back in and few cars where leaving
Which is what every place should do it prevents a traffic line.

We park walk to see the swimming area and it was Family friendly.
So we went back to place we was lost for 3 hours..

Wonderful. Isn't that where we get our drinking water from?

One of the things I miss most about New Hampshire (where I grew up) was the 100's of clean and cool lakes and rivers. Everyday after school my friends and I would got to a different "swimming hole" and they were never crowded. Of course we had 9 months of winter and only 3 months for swimming but they were a great 3 months.
