The best way to visit Pittsburg is to go fully armed with information. Luckily for all of us, the Town of Pittsburg has a robust website loaded with I-gotta-see-that-myself images of moose, fish, woodland and lakeside scenery and links to lodging, dining and more. So before you do anything else, visit pittsburg-nh.com and friend the town at Facebook.com/PittsburgNH. You’ll find lists of and quick links to lodging, dining and more.
You’ll also need to be up on the rules and regulations that go along with all that fishing and ATV-ing, so visit New Hampshire Fish and Game at wildlife.state.nh.us or call them 271-3421.
The fish and game site includes lists of licensed guides. Rates vary for full- or semi-full guiding. Many lodges and cabins also offer outfitter services with soup-to-nuts supplies and equipment – including guides.
The North Country Chamber of Commerce (237-8939, chamberofthenorthcountry.org) also has an info-rich website.
