Chocorua Lake Conservancy

The Chocorua Lake Conservancy (CLC) is a volunteer-led land trust founded in 1968 to protect the scenic and natural resources of the Chocorua Lake Basin and surrounding area through conservation practices, land protection, easements, maintenance of lands for public access, and the development of a community of support.   The CLC is committed to providing free public access to Chocorua Lake and surrounding conservation lands for all present and future visitors.

The CLC owns and manages almost 1,000 acres of conservation land across 20 properties in the Chocorua Lake Basin, and protects about 3,000 additional acres through perpetual conservation easements and covenants on over 120 properties.

Our main areas of focus include:

1) Convenient, attractive access to Chocorua Lake and surrounding conservation land for visitors and local residents

2) Land Conservation

3) Lake Protection

4) Education & Outreach

5) Community-Building & Volunteer Opportunities
