State and Regional Resources

We did our best to create many categories of ways to play in NH, but not every activity fits neatly into a box.  If you are not sure where to start when planning a trip or just going for a drive in NH or just want some general information sites to visit, here are some links that you may find helpful.  They have lots of great information about where to go, how to get there and what to do once you are there.

NH Division of Parks and Recreation is a statewide organization that manages 72 state parks, campgrounds, waysides and natural areas, and historic sites; oversees the Bureau of Trails that are used for snowmobiles, ATV’s, hiking, biking, cross country skiing, sled dog mushing, and equestrian use.

Visit NH is New Hampshire’s main tourism site and one of the most comprehensive sites for everything NH.

NH Outdoors provides resources for all NH outdoor recreation activities – hiking, camping, fishing, hunting, golf, boating and more.
