Coleman State Park
April 26. 2011 4:24PM
Coleman State Park lies on the shore of Little Diamond Pond in Stewartstown, twelve miles east of Colebrook in New Hampshire's remote north country.
The excellent trout fishing in Little Diamond Pond and nearby streams makes Coleman an excellent location for fishing enthusiasts.
A boat launch is located within the park; small boats are permitted, but speed is restricted. It is also a good base for fall hunting. The park is the northern terminus of the Androscoggin Trail, a hiking path that extends 55 miles south to Berlin.
