Arguably one of New Hampshire’s best-kept secrets, Baxter Lake is a 302-acre large body of water that is a spectacular place to visit for those who want to enjoy some watersports or those who simply want to soak in an incredible view. The lake is a great spot for swimming, fishing, and boating for locals and guests who are blessed to find it. The lake sits on the town line between Farmington and Rochester, with cottages available for rent along the western side of the lake. It’s important to note, however, that there is no public park on Baxter Lake, so visitors will have to make sure that they’ve got a place to stay or a boat to bring to the state-maintained marina. Those who don’t mind camping can also access one campground along the lake shore near the marina.
