Located in three towns, New London, Sunapee and Newbury, Lake Sunapee is a 4,085 acre glacial lake with a maximum depth of 112 feet. Between the 11 islands, 3 lighthouses and the numerous lake fingers and peninsulas, this lake packs in a ton of interest making it a phenomenal location for boating and exploring. There are four public boat launches, three harbors located in Sunapee, Newbury and Georges Mills and a state park beach. (Check out this page for more info on local beaches and start parks.)
In the summer months, you can often find live music at the bandstands in both Newbury and Sunapee Harbors, and a handful of restaurants serving up some great local cuisine. If you’re looking to get out on the water, but are in need of rentals, checkout or watersport rentals page.
