Discover Mirror Lake

“It is entirely possible that your best memories are of Mirror Lake”

The memorable Mirror Lake is a jewel nestled between the scenic towns of Wolfeboro and Tuftonboro with Mount Shaw
hovering above. True to its name clouds, stars and the mountain are often reflected in the water.

Residents and visitors enjoy fishing; kayaking; swimming; paddleboarding; sailing; canoeing; water skiing; jet skiing;
boating; wind surfing; and more. Reading, grilling and napping are favorites, too.

You Can Help Protect Mirror Lake

Protect the lake you love! Support the Mirror Lake Protective Association and invite your family, friends and guests to connect, too.

MLPA is not a homeowners’ association. All are welcome.

Make a difference today and for generations to come.

Giving is a powerful form of action.

Together, we work to keep our water and wildlife safe.

Cyanobacteria Blooms: What’s that green stuff?

Not everything green, brown or unusual in the lake is a cyanobacteria bloom. If you’d like to know for
sure what you are seeing please follow the NHDES protocol.

Our Volunteers

Starting with ten stellar MLPA board members volunteers branch out into teams supporting: Water Quality Monitoring; Weed Watching; Land Conservation; Finance; Website/Communication; Welcoming; Watershed Management Planning; Apparel; Lake Hosting; Buoys/Markers; and the Loons.

Protecting the Waters

Guided by Best Management Practices and the LakeSmart program residents take care of their properties. We have protocols for invasive plants and cyanobacteria blooms, our greatest threats. MLPA supports the Lake Host Program; Weed Watchers; Land Conservation; and Water Quality Monitoring to keep our lake clean. Everyone does their part.

Conservation Efforts

The MLPA Land Conservation Committee works in concert with the Tuftonboro Conservation Commission towards land conservation acquisitions.

Dr. Rick Van de Poll, from Ecosystem, serves as management consultant for MLPA.

Bear sightings!

Bear sightings around Mirror Lake are becoming more common. NH Fish and Game advises taking down bird feeders; firmly securing trash containers; thoroughly cleaning grills; and not leaving food of any kind in cars, sheds, decks etc. Keep doors and windows locked at night and when you leave the house. Bears will avoid ammonia soaked rags and loud noises such as clanging pots and pans, airhorns, yelling, clapping and such.
