    About Back Lake
    Coös County, New Hampshire

    Pittsburg has local grocery stores, gas stations, and auto repair shops for the necessities. Burlington, Vermont is the closest large city, under 150 miles away.

    The Northeast Kingdom International Airport is around 65 miles away, and the Upper Connecticut Valley Hospital is under 25 miles away.

    Peaceful Lake Just North of Lake Francis

    The tranquil waters of Back Lake encompass 348 acres of the Connecticut River Watershed. The lake has nearly four miles of shoreline, an average depth of seven feet, and a maximum depth of 15 feet.

    The untouched north-woods of New Hampshire surround Back Lake, giving its residents a rural-feeling environment.

    The water is considered a “cold water fishery” for brook trout, rainbow trout, brown trout, and brown bullhead. Fly fishing is a popular activity during the warm months; it is easy to cast from the shore and catch the trout cruising by.

    When colder weather comes around, anglers troll around the lake and use sinking fly lines to continue reeling in the trout. Electric motorboats, small fishing boats, canoes, kayaks, and paddleboats are great for navigating.

    Around the Area

    The Back Lake Cabins border Back Lake and have access to hundreds of miles of ATV trails for summer and winter.

    Philbrook Town Park has Philbrook Town Beach, a delightful spot to spend a hot summer day. Lake Francis State Park is another place to enjoy the New Hampshire wilderness that offers fishing, boating, and miles of ATV trails bordering Back Lake.
