Lamprey River Forest

About the Property

This property does not have a detailed Forest Reservation Guide map. All Forest Society reservations are open to the public; however, those without detailed Reservation Guide information may be difficult to locate and access due to lack of signage and parking. Unless you are comfortable navigating in the woods without trails or directional signage, you may wish to consider exploring one of the recommended properties nearby or any of our Featured Properties, which typically offer parking and a more detailed map.

Fishing Guide

Not long after Congress designated the Lamprey River as part of the National Wild and Scenic River system, the Forest Society acquired the Lamprey River Forest.  The property has a small parking area and a nice woods road trail that leads to the banks of the river.  The Lamprey River along here has a steady current and is popular in the spring with canoeists and kayakers.  It is stocked with trout by N.H. Fish and Game, but also hosts both small and large mouth bass. The parking area is off Prescott Road in Epping. From Rte. 27 (Pleasant Street), take Blake Road to Prescott and look for the Forest Society sign.
