Closure Extended for Merrymeeting Lake (New Durham) Boat Access Site
CONCORD, N.H. -- The New Hampshire Fish and Game Department boat access facility at Merrymeeting Lake in New Durham, N.H., will be closed through October 31, 2007, for completion of work being done to replace the water line to the Department's nearby Powder Mill Fish Hatchery. This project does not involve repairs to the Merrymeeting Lake boat ramp. The previous target date for completion of the work had been August 31, 2007, but this date has been extended because of complications in construction.
The Merrymeeting Marina, located at 317 Merrymeeting Lake Road, has made its boat ramp available as an option for boaters to access the lake this summer. There is no fee to launch at the marina's ramp; however, boaters wishing to park their vehicle and/or trailer at the marina will be charged a daily parking fee of $20.
Fish and Game works in partnership with the public to conserve, manage and protect the state's fish, wildlife and marine resources and their habitats. The Department's Land Resources Bureau acquires land for public water access sites, and its Support Services Division refurbishes existing sites and builds new public access areas.
