About William H. Champlin Forest Reservation
Champlin Forest is accessed from the parking area on the south side of NH-108 in Rochester, across from the Skyhaven Airport. There are a property sign and kiosk in this location. The parking area can accommodate approximately 20 cars, but it is not plowed in winter.

As a community resource featuring woods, water, wildlife and high-quality farm soils, Champlin Forest has many significant and diverse conservation features. Half of the property consists of well-managed, productive woodlands, containing marketable timber along with a diversity of wildlife habitats, consisting of a field, varied woodland types, vernal pools, and wetlands.

The property serves as the headwaters of and includes extensive frontage along Clark Brook and contributes to two nearby public water supplies. Remnants of a small-scale granite quarry dating to the mid-1800s, when stones were drilled and cut by hand, are evident as well.

Champlin Forest features a kiosk and parking area on NH-108 and hiking trails through field and forest.
