Chocorua is an unincorporated community within the town of Tamworth in Carroll County, New Hampshire, United States. It is located in the general area where Routes 16 and 113 meet, south of Mount Chocorua and Chocorua Lake.

Mount Chocorua is commonly known in the area as the "Matterhorn" of the White Mountains due to its triangular summit. Chocorua Lake at the southern base of the mountain is among the most beautiful lakes in the White Mountains. Tourists often pull off Route 16 and stop to swim and take pictures of the lake with the mountain in the background.
