The water is exceptionally pure. It is captured frequently by the LSPA (Lake Sunapee Protective Association) and analyzed at the Colby-Sawyer College aquatic laboratory. The source of much of the water comes from cold underground springs rising from a bedrock aquifer. On a sunny day, objects can be seen to a depth of 30 feet! Lake Sunapee is the fifth-largest lake located entirely in New Hampshire. The lake is approximately 8.1 miles long (north-south) and from 0.5 to 2.5 miles wide (east-west), covering 6.5 square miles with a maximum depth of 105 feet. It contains eleven islands (Loon Island, Elizabeth Island, Twin Islands, Great Island, Minute Island, Little Island, Star Island, Emerald Island, Isle of Pines and Penny Island) and is indented by several peninsulas and lake fingers, a combination which yields a total shoreline of some 70 miles.
Bring your kids, pet, fishing gear, mountain bikes, or (if you prefer relaxing) a book! Large deck for grilling, internet access and cable if don't want to fully unplug.
