DO’s and DON’Ts
- NH boating laws require you be 150 feet from shore, docks, rafts, swimmers, skiers/tubers/boarders and other boats when above headway speed.
- If you don’t have 150 feet ON EACH SIDE when BETWEEN ISLANDS AND SHORE, SLOW DOWN to headway speed.
- Canoes, kayaks, rowboats, sailboats, seaplanes, and swimmers have the RIGHT-OF-WAY.
- Observers for towing skiers/tubing must be at least 13 years old.
- CHILDREN 12 and under MUST WEAR a Coast Guard approved PFD when on a watercraft.
- A PFD is required for each person onboard a kayak, paddleboat, paddle board, or canoe.
- From SUNSET TO SUNRISE, navigation lights are required when boating, and skiing/tubing/boarding is prohibited.
- NH FISHING regulations apply. Please pick up a copy of the regulations when purchasing a fishing license.
- LEASH LAW in effect, and “pooper scoopers” and proper disposal in the trash is very much appreciated.
- The ISLANDS are private property. Do not trespass without the owner’s permission.
- Purchase TRANSFER STATION PERMITS at the Transfer Station in Sanbornville and dispose of trash and recyclables properly.
- CAMPFIRE PERMITS are available from the fire warden at Sanbornville Fire Station (no charge), State Line Garage in East Wakefield, or obtain online (small fee).
- NH CLEAN, DRAIN AND DRY law requires removal of all plants from boats, trailers, and fishing equipment before launching and when exiting the lake. Milfoil and other invasive species is of serious concern for us all.
- JET SKIS are BANNED by NH law on PRP. PWC’s that seat 3 or more are permitted. The operator must be 16 years or older.
- No washing or shampooing in or near the lake.
- Mooring to a navigational marker is prohibited by NH law.
- If you allow others to use your property to launch, please ensure the NH Clean, Drain and Dry law is observed to protect from milfoil and invasive species being introduced into PRP.
- BE AWARE OF NOISE AND LIGHTS – Please be considerate of your neighbors. Sound travels and lights reflect across the water. Please keep music turned down and flood lights off after dark.
- ATV’s are NOT allowed on private land or roads without written permission of owner. It’s the law!
- MEMBERS of the PRP Association are permitted to use the Lord Road Boat Ramp. If you are not a member, or don’t have deeded property rights to use the PRA Access Point on Lord Road, you are trespassing.
