Open AirCommunity Etiquette Essentials for Lake Lovers
Some aspects of boating eti- quette are built into New Hamp- shire boating laws. Review them here.
Before you go:
Clean, drain, and dry. Make sure your boat and trailer are clean, drained, and dry to avoid spreading invasive aquatic spe- cies from one water body to an- other.
At the ramp:
Be ready to launch. Have your gear and supplies loaded in your boat before it is your turn to launch so that people in line behind you don’t have to wait.
On the water:
Keep your distance. Law requires boats to maintain 150 feet from other boats and recre- ators, the shoreline, wildlife, and any other objects. That’s a l-o- n-g stretch (about half a football field)! Try pacing it out to see for yourself. For an etiquette A+, keep a distance of 200 feet.
Sound travels far over water, and not everyone may enjoy hearing

your 80s hits at full blast.
Pack it in, pack it out. Trash
that ends up overboard pollutes our lake, can lower water quality, and even entangle or threaten wildlife. If you take it out with you, take it back in!
Respect private land. Be- sides minimizing your wake and noise and keeping the proper dis- tance, do not trespass on private land. Of particular note on New- found is the Charles Bean Sanc- tuary at the north end of the lake, a protected wildlife sanctu- ary that is especially vulnerable to human impacts.
Human waste, including pee, threatens the health of New- found Lake and the people that enjoy it. If you need to go, make a stop at one of these public bathrooms:
• Wellington Boat Launch
• Grey Rocks Conservation Area (nonmotorized boats only)
• Avery Crouse Town Beach (next to The Big Catch)
Newfound is blessed with beautiful beaches. Let’s keep them that way!
Don’t feed the ducks. Not only do food items that decom- pose in the water pollute the lake, but attracting ducks to beaches means more duck poop, which can carry harmful bacteria that makes beaches unsafe for swim- ming.
Newfound’s public beaches do not have trash receptacles. Come prepared with a bag for your trash and take it home with you to avoid litter and pollution.
Follow the rules. Fishing, smoking, loud music, pets, fires... Rules can differ from beach to beach. Follow the rules on posted signs, check online before you go, or ask somebody!
