General Information

Description - Coleman State Park is well known among anglers and hunters. The overnight facility offers a good base for the surrounding hunting grounds and cold fishing waters. Winter sports enthusiasts enjoy snowmobiling and cross-country skiing.

Attractions - Located off SR 26 in the northern area of New Hampshire, Coleman State Park offers a remote campground, fishing, hiking and picnicking opportunities. This large park encompassing over 1,500 acres and is convenient to many nearby cold-water fishing and large game hunting opportunities. The easiest access to the park is off SR 26 which has several nearby golf courses and private downhill skiing courses. SR 26 is also used as a bicycling route, however, no paved shoulders.

Recreation - The excellent trout fishing in Little Diamond Pond and nearby streams makes Coleman an excellent location for fishing enthusiasts. A boat launch is located within the park; small boats are permitted, but speed is restricted. It is also a good base for fall hunting. Other activities offered at the park include hiking, canoeing, snowmobiling, and cross-country skiing. The park is the northern terminus of the Androscoggin Trail, a hiking path that extends 55 miles south to Berlin. Pets are welcome at this year-round park.

Climate - Winter can be cold with average temperatures ranging around 19 degrees Fahrenheit. The cold temperatures humidity bring heavy, water-laden snow to all parts of the state. Spring begins in mid-March and lasts through May. This time of the year is referred to as mud season in the mountains. The sugar is flowing early in the season and wild flowers bloom toward the end of it. Summer is the busiest season of the year for the tourism industry. This is an excellent time to travel, mountain roads are open and most of the mud has dried. Average summer temperatures range around 68 degrees Fahrenheit. Fall brings the leaf lookers to see the spectacular colors of the deciduous trees. Expect to see bus loads of people enjoying the crisp fall New England weather.

Location - From Kidderville, take Diamond Pond Road north about 3 miles to reach the park.
