Keene State College is fortunate to own 400 acres of pristine wilderness on Lake Nubanusit in the towns of Nelson and Hancock, NH; a quick 25 minute car ride from campus.
This property, which sits on a peninsula surrounded by Lake Nubanusit and Spoonwood Pond, is called the Louis Cabot Preserve. The property was acquired by the College in the early 1960s from the Nature Conservancy of N.H.
The Cabot Preserve is held in conservation; public access is permitted during daylight hours, but camping is prohibited.
The only public access is by boat, and if you are lucky you might be able to spot the lake’s resident bald eagles who have a nesting site near the preserve.
In the future, this land hopefully will become an outdoor learning laboratory for KSC classes. What a great get-away to enjoy a gorgeous N.H. day!
