This is a beautiful lake. It's known in the area as a favorite spot for moose, although we didn't see any during our visit. I'd highly recommend taking a drive/walk by around sunset, it's simply breathtaking. It's a great area for camping, hiking, walking, and being with nature!

If they don't have it, you don't need it. Lots of stuff to look over....clothing, camp gear, guns and ammo, fishing gear and the list goes on and on. Grab a slice of pizza on the way out. Gas station also.

Lake Umbagog National Wildlife Refuge

Reviewed By Sarracenia - Norman, Oklahoma

The total length of the 3 trails is 1.3 miles. The handicapped access trail is not so interesting since it is pretty wide and it does not look very natural. The other longer trails go through a lush forest of conifers and broad leaf trees. The forest floor is covered with mosses and the trail has some wet areas where there are wood planks you have to walk on in order to continue ahead. The trail goes to a blind overlooking the river. It was very nice although we did not see any moose or bears. Lots of mushrooms in the forest floor. All 3 trails are very easy to do, but you do have to be on the lookout for moose or bears.

I spent a weekend camping in Aug2011 with my sisters and my 10 year old (Girls Camping Trip) in Errol, NH, and kayaking in the Magalloway River was one of our outings. My sisters rented kayaks at LL Cote, a local store and outfitter in Errol. I brought my own equipment. We parked across the street from the Umbagog NWR headquarters, and put in at the canoe launch there.Very easy to launch there. We had a very nice paddle, but went in the middle of the day when it was hotter and the sun was glaring. We didnt see any moose, but we enjoyed watching a pair of Kingfishers dive in the rive for fish, and many beautiful dragonflies. Next time, I would like to go earlier in the morning when the temps are cooler and the wildlife more active. Can't wait to explore more in 2012.

This waterway leads into Lake Umbagog.

Reviewed By Bill190190 - Danvers, Massachusetts

This river is most associated with whitewater rafting, but if you camp on one of the remote sites on the northeastern shore of Lake Umbagog, you can paddle over and explore the first mile or two of serene and beautiful river before you start getting to the rapids, which are traveling against you. There are some camps and cabins in the area so there's a chance you'll see a few more people around here than you would at your average spot out on Umbagog. At some point I intend to kayak and photograph Pond in the River which is further up the river. Be aware of the weather at all times, the water in the river is very calm, but the wind had picked up that morning as I paddled out and I came back out into a very spirited Umbagog that I was glad to quickly get the kayak out of. Two or three of the remote Umbagog sites are a very easy paddle from the opening of the rapid river. One guy that morning was even snorkeling out in front of his cabin.
