The Outdoor Recreation Area is a beautiful 200-acre site just seven miles from Durham. The pond is located on the Little River, a tributary of the Lamprey River and part of the larger Piscataqua River watershed. The Area is perfect for boating and picnicking. Lakeside picnic areas are provided and canoes and paddle boats are available for rent. Swimming is permitted, however, there are no lifeguards on duty.
