General Information

Description - A fire tower located within the park offers panoramic views of White Mountain National Forest, views into Maine and up into Canada. Low-lying wetlands offer an opportunity for moose viewing.

Attractions - This 127-acre park offers limited amenities amid an atmosphere of solitude. One of the main features of the park is the fire tower that rests at the peak of Milan Hill, 1,737 feet above sea level. From this tower, visitors are treated to sweeping views of southern Canada, the northern White Mountains and the mountains of Maine. There are a limited number of camp sites at this 127-acre state park.

The park lies along Route 110B which runs perpendicular to Route 16 which travels alongside the Androscoggin River. The park is situated several miles west of the town of Milan, which offers the Berlin Municipal Airport. Large game hunters, coldwater and warmwater anglers along with other recreation enthusiasts find this airport convenient to both state and federal lands.

Recreation - Milan Hill State Park is located in northern New Hampshire offering limited camping, hiking, picnicking and several nearby fishing opportunities. In winter, the park offers cross-country skiing. Located west of Milan State Park near the junction of Route 110B and 110A, anglers will find brook trout in Cedar Brook. This small creek is a tributary to the 78-acre Cedar Pond. Cedar Pond is known for maintaining populations of largemouth bass, smallmouth bass, pickerel, horned pout and rainbow trout.

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 - Milan Hill State Park is located two miles west of the small burg of Milan on SR 110B.
