Right in the Middle of Everything

Ellacoya State Park is located in Gilford on the southwest shore of Lake Winnipesaukee. The 600-foot long sandy beach, with views across the lake to the Sandwich and Ossipee mountains, is a great place to spend with the family for a full day of swimming and picnicking. Gilford residents receive automatic membership to the Gilford Town Beach. 

Also located in Gilford is Meadowbrook Musical Arts Center, an outdoor concert facility that has seen artists from Bob Dylan to Dierks Bentley perform during the summer months.
