I go kayaking on Squam Lake every year – it is so beautiful and peaceful. You can launch your boat (or rent one) from the Squam Lake Association ( You can land on public islands maintained by the Squam Lake Association. I highly recommend paddling out to Moon Island and Bowman Island. There you can swim, picnic and enjoy the sounds of the loons.


First experience in sea kayaks; from public boat launch at Holderness to Moon Island and back. Beautiful lake with miles of shoreline, but almost completely private and unavailable. Wind picked up in the afternoon and made the return trip a bit rougher. Beautiful place to spend a day.
