What is there to do at Westward Shores Cottages & RV Resort?
Well, since we are on the shores of a beautiful New Hampshire lake… let’s go to the beach! We have two here (plus one for the dogs!) and they all have gradual entry into the crystal clear waters of Ossipee Lake. We have over 2000′ of sandy shoreline for swimming. If you’re an outdoor sports enthusiast, there is boating, sailing, kayaking, tubing, water skiing and fishing. We also plan special activities all season long. There is fun for all ages, so please check out our Attractions page for more details.

Please note that attractions may have limited availability during non-peak season.

Open: May 14 – October 17. Peak Season: June 18 – September 6.
