Public Access Site Maps

The State is developing a set of Public Access maps for New Hampshire’s rivers. These maps indicate boat access locations as well as other types of access sites, including shore fishing and river walks. Note that not all designated rivers have maps available yet. Please contact the Rivers Coordinator at RiversProgram@des.nh.gov for more information.

Additional sources of online information about public access sites to New Hampshire’s rivers and lakes are available in the Public Access Information Links document. The New Hampshire Fish and Game Department maintains an interactive map of New Hampshire Boating and Fishing Public Access Sites. For an interactive map of public access sites in the coastal region, see the New Hampshire Coastal Atlas.
