Course Outline

It is against the law to anchor your boat overnight on any inland surface waters of the state of New Hampshire. Here are the requirements for houseboats.

  • Occupied or unoccupied houseboat may be beached, grounded, or tied to the shore of any of the inland surface waters of the state for an overnight period, or any part of an overnight period, only when on or at a location owned, leased, or permitted by the owner.
  • The owner, lessee, or person with the permission of the owner must give written notice of this fact promptly to the New Hampshire Department of Environmental Services (NH DES).
