Echo Lake Beach, located on the slopes of Cannon Mountain in the New Hampshire White Mountain's Franconia State Park (Exit 34C off Route 93), is surely one of New England's most beautiful lakes. Clear, clean and endlessley scenic, the 28-acre Echo Lake at an elevation of nearly 2,000 ft. is majestically surrounded by the Franconia and Kinsman Ranges and lends an innate peacefulness that so many travelers are looking for in a New England vacation. The summer beach scene is Echo Lake's most busy time, offering visitors an ideal lake beach travel getaway and lifeguards on duty, a snack bar, and the chance to rent a kayak or canoe for quintessential New Hampshire mountains-meet-lake scenery. The fall is also a wonderful time to visit with its amazing trees reflecting its brilliant colors on the water.  And of course, the winter season is idyllic with scenes of this beautiful lake and all that great skiing nearby at Cannon Mountain!

If it's true that location is everything, then Echo Lake Beach is your scenic lake dream-come-true. Spectacular!
