      Pawtuckaway is owned and managedby the State of NH - Department of Resources and Economic Development - Division Of Parks and Recreation.

      Maintained by: Division of Parks, NH Chapter Appalachian Mountain Club, Southern NH NEMBA

      Pawtuckaway State Park was developed in 1966 as a multi-use recreational park from land initially acquired in 1915. The name "Pawtuckaway" is derived from the Indian word meaning "place of the big buck". The Park comprises 5500 acres, with an 800 acre lake, and has a variety of land features. Within its borders are an extensive marsh, a large boulder field and a mountain top fire tower. Its terrain can be quite hilly

      -Burnhams Marsh is most enjoyable in the early morning or late evening when the wildlife is more apt to be active. The Fundy Trail borders a large portion of this marsh.

      -The Boulder Field is an area where boulders (glacial erratics) were deposited at the end of the last ice age 10,000 years ago. Rock climbers flock to the area to test their skills on these many varied formations.

      -The Fire tower, built in 1915, located on the summit of South Mountain, is open from spring to fall, weather permitting. The park also offers camping, swimming, boating, fishing and group picnic areas.
      Primary Trail Type: Cross-Country
      eBikes Allowed: No
