White Lake Memories

Posted on by Discover Power of Parks SCA Interpreters

Written by Rachael Esh, White Lake State Park Interpretive Ranger

To some, White Lake State Park may seem like any other lake. To others, White Lake holds family tradition and irreplaceable memories.

Working at White Lake this summer has led me to meet a variety of people and hear their stories of why they come to this park. Some have been to White Lake since they were just a few years old and now bring their children here. They camp out for up to two weeks and enjoy the simplicity of the park that they can share with their family.

White Lake has clear, shallow, and sandy waters that make it perfect for swimming.

The two mile trail around the lake offers a variety of plants, animals, and great views.

Daylilies can be found throughout the park.

Many have seen the beaver lodge or caught a glimpse of the loons. You may also find a few fresh blueberries, bilberries, or Indian cucumber root.

 

Those who’ve attended nature programs in the past return each year to enjoy them. Newcomers also love coming to one or all of the nature programs offered Wednesday-Sunday during July and August.

Kids identified what they caught during Lake Dwellers, including a pickerel fish, green frog, and dragonfly larva.

One of the best parts of White Lake State Park is the view of the White Mountains from the sandy shore. Although I have lived here two months, every sunset is unique and can’t be replicated.

 

If you have not yet been to White Lake State Park, I invite you to create memories and perhaps a new tradition with your family or friends. Don’t forget to watch the sunset and enjoy all that White Lake has to offer.
