You're invited to visit one of the White Mountain's most outstanding attractions featuring trained North American Black Bears, antique Americana, steam trains and a whole lot more.
The Clarks have been providing quality family entertainment for over 70 years. An admission ticket will provide fun for any age as you step back in time. Exhibits include a replica of a hook and ladder house, Tuttle's Rustic House and Merlin's Mystical Mansion, which will turn your whole world upside down. A ride on the White Mountain Central Railroad will take you across the Pemigewasset River and the bumper boats in Old Mill Pond are sure to cool you off, and a new water coaster ride opened in 2015.

The White Mountain Central Railroad
The White Mountain Central Railroad is located within the grounds of Clark's Trading Post. While Clark's Trading Post is more a family theme park than a railroad museum, it is one of the few places in New England that consistently runs steam trains. In 2008, the railroad will celebrate its 50th Anniversary. The railroad is known for rescuing steam locomotives from being destroyed. Over the years it became home to the Climax, Heisler, Shay and Porter locomotives.
In 1963-65 a railroad covered bridge located in East Montpelier, Vt., was dismantled, transported, and reassembled spanning the Pemigewasset River on the White Mt. Central by Edward M. Clark, his two teenage sons, and a dedicated crew. This scenic extension of The White Mt. Central RR was a monumental accomplishment.
