Help us keep the lake clean and free of invasive plants!
There are two public access points for Lake Tarleton. The first is Lake Tarleton State Park, located on the northern end of the lake on Route 25C. The park features an unguarded swimming beach and pleasant areas for picnicking and viewing Lake Tarleton and the surrounding White Mountain National Forest. No pets are allowed at the State Park, and it is illegal to launch boats. During the summer months, a portable toilet is available.
At the southern end of the lake, there is a public boat launch. HELP US PREVENT INVASIVE WEEDS!
Lake Tarleton is free of invasive exotic weeds, however many local bodies of water including Lakes Morey, Fairlee, Winnipesaukee, Squam, and Newfound, as well the Connecticut River, are not.
Please check and clean your boat each time you take it out of any body of water, and each time before you launch at the Tarleton public boat launch. Work with your Lake Host at the boat ramp.
