How to Access New Hampshire’s Great Bay


Peter Wellenberger of the Conservation Law Foundation has a fantastic article about paddling New Hampshire’s Great Bay estuary—sometimes referred to as New Hampshire’s hidden coast.

Wellenberger provides useful tips on how to get around the bay and places to visit, and includes a link to a PDF map showing many access points for kayaks, canoes and cartop boats. The map is HERE .

“My favorite launch spot is Chapman’s Landing in Stratham on the Squamscott River,” writes Wellenberger. “From Chapman’s you can easily explore the vast salt marshes and tidal creeks found along the river or paddle all the way up to Exeter. Nesting osprey can be found down river from the boat ramp.”

The rest of the article is full of such useful and interesting information. You can read the entire piece HERE.
