Swimming - Boating - Fishing

The swimming is superb! We have a private beach located on mile-long, spring-fed crystal clear Swanzey Lake. There's a special dock area where you can sit and fish, dangle your feet and enjoy the beautiful views.

Rent one of our boats, canoes, or paddleboats and explore the 108 acre Swanzey Lake. We also offer low cost moorings for personal watercraft by day, week or season.

Cast a line and fish for several species including; American Eel, Bluegill, Pumpkinseed, Brook Trout, Rainbow Trout, Smallmouth Bass, Yellow Perch, and Brown Bullhead. Visit our camp store for all your fishing needs, bait, snacks, and supplies.
