New Hampshire whitewater, Cold Brook

Carrol county, Route 25 to Bearcamp River section whitewater kayaking, rafting, and paddling information.


CLASS V     1.4 miles
  Whitewater rafting and kayaking in New Hampshire is often more difficult than elsewhere, so you'd better keep in mind that the rivers in this state are less manageable. The natural beauty of New Hampshire and the sparkling of the sunlight on the water are reasons enough to come here and paddle. Not too many hotels nearby, you'll have to drive a bit to get to one, but if you donít have reservations you might end up sleeping in your car. The
    Route 25 to Bearcamp River stretch is one of a few paddling stretches in this river system. Whether you're whitewater rafting or kayaking there are lots of good rivers for that around here. If you're coming from Laconia
it's not a long drive at all to the put-in location, as you can see on the road map further down. This is a very short stretch so it's not like you're gonna spend hours on the river in one stretch. The campgrounds here at Cold Brook are pretty good. This section of Cold Brook is 1.4 miles long and has been rated as a class V section by American Whitewater. A good workout and just hanging out with mother nature have people coming from far  
and near. The wild scenery of the White Mountains is great.

Briefly about the general area:
This is a popular place for people from South Tamworth, and the Old Locke Road Path offers hiking at its best. And that's not everything there is to do here in the White Mountains. During your stay at Cold Brook do take a look at nearby Moultonborough Town Beach; White Lake State Park is a glorious site to pop by on a gorgeous day. This is such a fun river. Why not take a refreshing hike along the Bickford Trail; you can never get enough of the great skiing at Abenaki. Time spent at Center Harbor Town Beach next to Cold Brook is always great.
