Chocorua is located in Carroll County
and got its name from the nearby mountain, which was named after an Indian chief, that carries its own legend (Legend of Chocorua). In several versions, the legend relates the mysterious death of Chocorua's son while in the care of a settler named Campbell. Suspicious of the cause, the Pequawket Chieftain took revenge on the settler's family. Then, in retaliation, Campbell killed Chocorua on the peak of the mountain now bearing the Indian's name.
Chocorua is centrally located between magnificent White Mountains National Forest or New Hampshire's largest lake Lake Winnipesaukee. Take a winter's drive to ski at Attitash.
