In 1938, a hurricane nicknamed Long Island Express (they didn’t receive official names until 1950) roared up the eastern seaboard, flooding cities, and towns along the way. Several towns in New Hampshire were devastated even though the hurricane was weakened by the time it arrived in the upper New England region. To prevent a recurrence, the United States Army Corps of Engineers constructed a few dams in the area, including the one on Piscataquog River. A small lake, Everett Lake, was formed as a result, and the state of New Hampshire created a small state park, Clough State Park, in 1963 to facilitate recreational fun on the lake.
The closest large town is Concord, which is the state capital of New Hampshire. About 15 miles to the northeast of Clough State Park, the town is the oldest capital in which the legislators still use the original chambers. Across the street from the capital is the Eagle Hotel, one of the oldest still-functioning hotels in the country. Several presidents of the United States have guested at this hotel. There are several other historic structures, homes, and landmarks in the town, too.
Although Clough State Park is a smaller one with only about 50 acres, what it lacks in size, it makes up for in recreational fun. In addition to a boat launch which facilitates access to Everett Lake, there is a 900-foot beach. Save for a few days during the peak season; it rarely gets crowded on this lake. It’s the perfect spot for a quiet day of sunbathing and fishing. If it gets too warm on the beach, retreat into the shade of tall pine trees that tower overhead. A few miles of trails meander through the sunlight-dappled woods, giving adventurers an opportunity to stretch their legs. One spur leads to the dam, and explorers are welcome to venture onto the top of the dam, which is quite an eerie sensation. The wall spans only a few feet, and during especially wet years, it can feel as though one is walking on water if the lake level is high.
There are kayaks and canoes available for rent, too. Paddle alongside the shore and watch for deer, rabbits, and overhead, hawks. Or venture out into the middle of the lake and watch the tall trees at the horizon shrink.
Engage in spontaneous games of volleyball, baseball, or football on the nearby playing field, which has plenty of room to spread out.

Encompassing over 10,000 acres, it is the largest developed park in the state. In addition to two practice archery range, there are several miles of hiking trails that take explorers over a variety of terrains.
