Lake Chocorua is the site of the oldest continuous sled dog race in the Northeast. Photo opportunities abound, as the many sled dog teams and drivers prepare to race over the historic trails in scenic Tamworth, New Hampshire.
The nearest hotels are the Econolodge Lakes Region (603-301-1426, allows dogs, though management can be fussy about dogs in rooms) and the Day’s Inn Tamworth, (603-323-9100, does not allow dogs). There are numerous inns North of the race site in North Conway, NH.
