Visitor Information

Plymouth State University—a classic New England campus— is blocks from the center of Plymouth, NH and the confluence of the Pemigewasset and Baker Rivers.

Because we’re surrounded by some of the nation’s most beautiful and accessible natural landscapes, our students have world-class recreation opportunities year round. And visits by family and friends can easily turn into a vacation.

At the gateway to the White Mountains, hiking, skiing, and rock and ice climbing are a short drive away. And enjoying the region doesn’t require a car.

New Hampshire has “some of the prettiest roads for cycling in the U.S.—or any other country, for that matter,” according to National Geographic Adventure.

Canoeing and kayaking enthusiasts won’t be disappointed. The Baker River Valley boasts scenic sections of river and quiet ponds, and New Hampshire’s Lakes Region begins minutes away at Squam Lake.
