Bear Brook State Park is a 10,000-acre (40 km2) preserve located in Allenstown, New Hampshire and surrounding towns. It is one of New Hampshire's largest state parks.

Amenities at Bear Brook include camp sites, a picnic area, hiking trails, swimming and fishing ponds, archery range, camp store, ball field, playground, bathhouse, shelters, picnic tables, canoe & row boat rentals, physical fitness course, Camping Museum, 4-H Nature Center, Snowmobile Museum and the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) Museum.

The park takes its name from Bear Brook, a stream which runs through the park. Its environment is that of the Northeastern coastal forests ecoregion.[1]

In 1985, and again in 2000, the remains of four unidentified females were found. The case remains unsolved.[2]
