On a day trip adventure this summer we stop at a cute little state park, Clough State Park. We had done a hike not too far away at the Manchester Cedar Swamp Trail and were looking for a way to cool down. We pulled into the nice little park. The Gate Attendant was very friendly and helpful as we had never been there before. By the time we had arrived it had gotten cloudy and cooler, therefore we decided not to swim, but wanted to check to the park anyway. There was a fairly big sand beach, a lot of picnic tables, opportunity to bring your own kayak, paddle board or canoe for paddling around the lake.
