Parking Available for Boat Trailers at Lake Winnisquam
CONCORD, N.H. -- To provide boaters and anglers with free parking for boat trailers during the 2007 season at Lake Winnisquam, the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department has leased a parking lot located at All-In-One Storage at 48 Winnisquam Avenue in Laconia as of April 1, 2007. Fish and Game is in the process of developing final plans to construct a public boat access facility at Water Street in Laconia. Until the project is completed, anglers and boaters who need public parking in order to fish Lake Winnisquam are encouraged to use the lot at All-In-One Storage to park their trailers. Boat launching will continue to be available for a fee at nearby Martel's Bait Shop. The parking lot will be open until October 1, 2007.
The Winnisquam Access site will be constructed on property that Fish and Game purchased in 2006, located within the Waste Treatment facility compound on Water Street. Construction is expected to begin in the summer of 2007. The Department wishes to stress that until the proposed boat access facility is completed at Water Street, boaters and anglers will not be able to access the lake at this location. The Waste Treatment facility compound is a fully secured site, and Fish and Game land within the compound is not open for public use at this time.
