About Ellacoya State Beach and RV Park

Ellacoya State Park is located in Gilford on the southwest shore of Lake Winnipesaukee, New Hampshire's largest lake. The 600-foot long sandy beach, with views across the lake to the Sandwich and Ossipee mountains, is a great place to spend with the family for a full day of swimming and picnicking. The campground includes 37 sites available by reservation only, and offers three-way hook-ups. Tents are not allowed at the RV park. Pets are not allowed in the RV campground or in other areas of the park.

Set up for big RVs

The camping is a large open area (no shade) with RVs lined up. There are full hook-ups and if you plan to only use the bathroom and shower in your RV it is likely fine. The showers are horrific. There are two different shower rooms, with two showers each. While we were there one whole room was labeled “out of order”. In the other, only one of the coin operated showers was working. So, only one shower for the entire campground. The shower area was FILLED with with bugs and spiders. We unfortunately had to kill one spider that was dangling from the ceiling into the shower we were trying to use. The kids screamed the whole time.

The lake water was deemed to high in bacteria to swim in while we were there, but the natives were swimming anyway, so we did too. The beach was nice and if it wasn’t for the bacteria concern we’d have enjoyed it even more. (Bacteria is why we didn’t skip the shower.)

The view was gorgeous.

First to Review
RV sites are basically in a parking lot

The area for RVs needs more trees!

The beach for the registered campers is lovely, and it has a lovely view of the Lake. But there is no shade or privacy between RV sites.

The showers require coins to operate, so we only used the restrooms.

We spent most of our time at the State Beach, there is a bridge that spans the RV site to the public beach. We really liked this portion of the park.
