This is consistent with my research.

This is not to say that you will not find any other nude beaches in New Hampshire if you look hard enough or are particularly lucky. Lots of lakes, lots of waterfront and many of the lakes have very secluded areas. And this does not even touch upon all the skinny dipping that takes place on most of the NH lakes ‘in the dark’ (and sometimes when it isn’t that dark.

Also remember that in NH, as in most States, there is a BIG difference between nude and topless — irrespective of gender. NH continues to be a TOPLESS STATE — i.e., State Law does not preclude women going topless. That is the Law. Attempts to change that in early 2016 following the misguided “Free the Nipple (New Hampshire)” protests failed. Yes, there have been arrests at the local level (in Laconia and Gilford) but the Judges, thankfully, have correctly interpreted the law — so far.

Google Map of the Nottingham “Cedar Waters” location. Rather central. Right off NH Route 125. You can’t miss it EVEN IF there is nobody standing outside. Click to ENLARGE.

nhcedersignGiven that I have ‘topless‘ posts and even ‘topless in NH‘ posts, not to mention the recent posts about ‘Free the Nipple in New Hampshire‘, I do get ‘hits’ here of people looking for nude or nudist beaches in New Hampshire.

Today I felt compelled to address this, once and for all.

Yes, New Hampshire does have a bona fide nudist beach– Cedar Waters Village, 24 Smoke Street, Nottingham, NH 03290. Tel: 603-679-2036.

I have never been but I have driven past the sign on many an occasion.

So that is at least ONE genuine nudist park, with a lake and beach, in New Hampshire.


As to Topless Beaches …

There is no female topless laws in New Hampshire per se, though there is a rather broad one covering lewdness (which could be used to cover ‘topless’) and then there is always the catch-all ‘disturbing the peace‘. Plus individual towns, Laconia for example, can have specific topless ordinances — and Laconia does have one having to do with Bike Week. Kind of sad. I have lived here long enough to remember when there was quite a bit of female toplessness at Weirs during Bike Week.

Having lived waterfront in New Hampshire for 17 years, 10 of it on Lake Winnipesaukee, I can assure you that there is more toplessness and nudity around the NH lakes than you realize — albeit some on private beaches and ‘when the sun goes down’.

That there are no State laws against female toplessness does not mean that you will not get arrested on a beach if you happen to be topless and somebody complains. And the complaining part is key. Shame. As I have said many a times I grew up in Europe where most beaches are topless. 

So now you have the full story. Enjoy.
