The best camping near Umbagog Lake State Park guide

Overview

About

Umbagog Lake State Park is situated at the southern end of Umbagog Lake, a large wilderness lake that straddles the New Hampshire-Maine state line not too far from the Canadian border. Umbagog means shallow water in the Abenaki language and the area is rich in Native history. Popular activities in the park include swimming, boating, fishing, and wildlife viewing in the summer and snowmobiling and snowshoeing in winter. Campers will find many options from RV-friendly sites with hookups to remote cabins and campsites only accessible by boat. 

Tips for snagging a campsite

  1. Campsite and cabin reservations can be made up to 11 months in advance online or over the phone. 
  2. Same-day reservations can only be made by calling the park directly.  
  3. Cabin rentals are only available for Monday through Thursday night and Friday night through Sunday night. Reservations can be combined for week-long stays.  

When to go

Umbagog Lake State Park is open year-round, but campgrounds are only open from mid-May through early October. Paddling on the lake is best in the early morning before afternoon winds pick up. Mosquitoes and other biting flies can be troublesome in midsummer; come prepared with long pants and buy spray or avoid this season altogether. Fall, when waterfall migration season begins, is an especially pleasant time to visit. Fall colors tend to peak by late September.  

Know before you go

  1. Campsites are equipped with a fire ring and picnic table. The base park campground has 27 sites with electric and water hookups available. 
  2. The campground has flush toilets, coin-operated showers, and a camp store. 
  3. Canoe and kayak rentals are available as well as a paid boat shuttle to remote campsites and cabins.   
  4. Dogs are not permitted at beaches, in cabins, and at remote campsites.
