Public access to Kezar Lake
Horse Beach & Wadleigh State Park
For safety concerns: Sutton Police 927-4422 — For emergencies: 911.
Wadleigh State Park is a peaceful and safe place for anyone to swim, particularly families. It offers a roped off area for children to splash in, barbecue fireplaces, picnic tables and rest rooms. The long, clean sandy beach is perfect for lounging and wildlife viewing. The eagles and loons are visible to the naked eye most summer days from here and evening sunsets can be outstanding.
Horse Beach near the town common is a
traditional gathering spot. Swimmers should
take care as this area can become congested.
Be as visible as possible while swimming
and watch for boats.
There are a variety of boats on Kezar — canoes, kayaks, sculls, sailboats, motorboats, paddle boards. The public
boat ramp is at Horse Beach. At peak times, this area becomes busy with Lake Hosts checking boats for hitchhiking invasives, like milfoil and zebra mussels, which can ruin the lake if introduced. Clean, drain and dry your boat prior to arriving to help speed things up at launch.
People come from all around NH to fish on Kezar.
The lake is small enough to be free from noise & crowds
on most days, but still large enough to contain many
interesting species including trout, perch & bass.
Species change over the years, with at least one added
mysteriously — the black crappie.
Fish Lead-Free to protect our environment!
Take old lead tackle to your town hazardous waste
collection day; to NH Fish & Game, Hazen Drive,
Concord; or give to a KLPA Lake Host for disposal.
Help keep our lake, eagles, loons & kids healthy!
