Bizer's list of islands of Lake Winnipesaukee

And other trivial information

Updated 13-August-2014
Elvis come home.  We have collected the life insurance
So far, the count is 260, only 132 are over 1/4 acre)

There has been a lot of controversy about the number of islands contained within Lake Winnipesaukee. Folklore has it that there are 365 islands, one for each day of the year. Another source says that there are 274 inhabitable islands. So Bizer is attempting to generate a complete list of all the islands within Lake Winnipesaukee AND WE NEED YOUR INPUT. We want to know anything to make this list more complete, such as: Omitted Island; Alias for an island; Unusual History or trivia about an island. If you have anything to add to this list, please send us an email.  Recent changes to this list are at the bottom.  

Our first task was to define what constitutes an island.  What is the dividing line between a large rock and a small island?  When does one island become two?  Well, this is our definition; your results may vary:  It must be surrounded by water at high lake in June; It must have vegetation (otherwise it's just a rock); Man made breakwaters do not count as islands, BUT we do count former natural islands where fill has been added to join two land masses; There must be at least a three foot height difference between the island's tallest point (including vegetation) and the surrounding water's shallowest depth (e.g. if the surrounding water is only 14 inches deep, the island must rise at least 22 inches above the surface).

Then, we divided the lake into eight regions for grouping. We tabulated islands within that region in some geographical order. Here is a map of the lake divided into the eight regions, "A" through "H".


 


Our count by section:
Region A - (33 islands) - Center Harbor to Three Mile Island
Region B - (24 islands) - Meredith Bay, Paugus Bay, Stonedam Island, Governors Island
Region C - (26 islands) - Long Point (Moultonboro Neck); Bear, Timber, Lockes Island to Glendale
Region D - (23 islands) - Braun Bay; Six Mile, Birch, Jolly, Camp, Welch Islands to Ellacoya State Park
Region E - (61 islands) - Green's Basin, Lees Mills, Moultonboro Bay to Black Island
Region F - (27 islands) - Nineteen Mile Bay, The Graveyard, Whortleberry, Dow, & Long Islands)
Region G - (21 islands) - Sandy, Little Bear, Ragged & Cow Islands
Region H - (45 islands) - Winter Harbor, Wolfeboro, Varney Islands, Alton Bay, The Broads
This gives Bizer a tentative count of 260 islands. Only about 130 islands are over 1/4 acre, the minimum needed to support a septic system (and that's being very optimistic). At the end of the enumeration, we have some Notes and unusual comments about some of the islands

Listed here are the approximate sizes of each island, its name, its location, and any other descriptive information that identifies the island. If an alias or old name is also known, that name, too, is listed. For ease of counting, islands are placed into groups of ten.

Bizer is looking for input to complete this list. If you have anything to add to this list, please email us at islands@bizer.com. We want to find out how many islands there really are.
Some notes, assumptions, and abbreviations that are used here:

The sizes listed here are eyeball-estimates.
Size = 1 - Under   3m square (e.g. Becky's Garden)
       2 - Under  10m square
       3 - Under  30m square (under 1/5 acre) (Minimum size for a shack)
       4 - Under 100m square (under 2 acres) (Minimum size for a septic system)
       5 - Under 300m square (under 20 acres)
       6 - Under  1km square (under 200 acres)
       7 - Over   1km square

Section H: Winter Harbor, Wolfeboro, Varney Islands, Alton Bay, & The Broads

Many islands in this section are difficult to define. In order to boat around Melody Island, one must also boat around at least one dozen other islands: Three on the east side of Melody; Two south of Melody Island (and connected by rocks); five unbuildable islands (Are these the Varney Islands?), and one very small island which may be considered a rock.

Winnipesaukee Fun Facts

After compiling the island count, Bizer started to receive requests for other pieces of information such as shore line and area, so we'll share some of that information.

Area

We set our trusty computer to analyze the data that we use to make our map. After adding everything, we conclude that Winnipesaukee is 79.6 square miles.  This includes Paugus Bay, The Basin, Back Bay, and all the islands.   The islands compromise 8.3 square miles leaving the lake itself with a surface area of 71.3 square miles (79.6 - 8.3).  Note: 640 acres = one square mile.  

Here are the islands larger than 4 acres, largest first:

Long=1186;  Bear=780;  Cow=522;  Governors=504;  Rattlesnake=368;  Welch=187;  Little Bear=143;  Stonedam=141;  Timber=136;  Sleepers=113;  Mark=102;  Barndoor=88;  Black Cat=75;  Pine=74;  Whortleberry=69;  Sandy=67;  Jolly=50;  Three Mile=47;  Round=43;  Lockes=42;  Diamond=37;  Dow=32;  Big Beaver=30;  Camp=28;  Mink=26;  Birch=25;  Six Mile=23;  Farm=21;  Melody=20;  Chases=19;  Worcester=18;  Keniston=18;  Pitchwood=15;  Ganzey=15;  Nineacre=13 acres (Which makes you wonder how Nineacre Island got its name);  Five Mile=13;  Ragged=12;  Badger=11;  Treasure=10;  Hull=9;  Joes=8;  Glines=7;  Beaver=7;  Little Barndoor=6;  Little Camp=6;  One Mile=6;  Little Whortleberry=6;  Kinneho= 5;  Half-Mile (western section)=5;  Christmas=4;  Whaleback=4;  Fish=4;  Half Mile (eastern section)=4;

Shoreline

Bizer calculated the Lake Winnipesaukee outer shoreline at 178 miles.  This includes Paugus Bay, Back Bay, The Basin.  It also includes 1 1/2 miles of shoreline south of  the Route 11 bridge in Alton Bay.  Together, the islands have 100 1/2 miles of shoreline.  Adding these two figures gives Lake Winnipesaukee 278 1/2 miles of shoreline.
