Squam Lake, New Hampshire

Squam Lake, N.H., lies on the borders of Holderness, Sandwich, Moultonborough, and Centre Harbor. This is "a splendid sheet of water, indented by points, arched with coves, and studded with a succession of romantic islands." It is about 6 miles long, and in its widest part, 3 miles in width. It covers a surface of between 6,000 and 7,000 acres, and is well stored with trout and other fish.

Squam River is the outlet of the above mentioned lake: it passes through Squam pond in Holderness, and forms a junction with the Pemigewasset, at the S.W. corner of that town.
