The Sculptured Rocks Natural area is a 272-acre (110 ha) natural area in Groton, New Hampshire. Its main feature is its namesake, the Sculptured Rocks, which are a series of narrow, sharply carved rock formations that are a popular local swimming hole. They are located on the Cockermouth River, which is the longest tributary of Newfound Lake. The Sculptured Rocks Road, which runs along this same river, shares its namesake with the park.
