Bedell Bridge State Park, also known as Bedell Bridge State Historic Site, is a 74-acre (30 ha) state park located in Haverhill, New Hampshire, on the Connecticut River. It is open year-round and offers walking, picnicking, non-motorized boating, and fishing. A Fish and Game boat launch is located within the park.

History

The property is the site of the former Bedell Covered Bridge, which was the second-longest covered bridge in the United States, until its destruction by wind in 1979. The bridge's stone piers still remain in the river. The bridge formerly connected Haverhill to Newbury, Vermont.
