Baboosic Brook is a 12.7-mile-long (20.4 km)[1] stream located in southern New Hampshire in the United States. It is a tributary of the Souhegan River, which flows to the Merrimack River and ultimately to the Gulf of Maine.

Baboosic Brook begins at the outlet of Baboosic Lake in the town of Amherst, New Hampshire. The brook takes a winding course (east- and southward flow predominating) through the towns of Amherst, Bedford, and Merrimack before ending at the Souhegan River near its outlet to the Merrimack River.

Baboosic Lake

Baboosic Lake (buh-BOO-sik) is a 228.5-acre (92.5 ha) lake located on the border of Amherst and Merrimack, in Hillsborough County, New Hampshire. The lake drains into Baboosic Brook, a tributary of the Merrimack River.

Baboosic is a "warm water lake" and supports fish species such as chain pickerel, largemouth bass, yellow perch, catfish, and many sunfish. During winter months the lake freezes and is suitable for ice fishing, ice skating and snowmobiling.

Baboosic was once a popular destination for vacationers who traveled via the long-gone Boston & Maine Railroad Manchester & Milford branch train.

A Jewish summer camp for children ages 8–15, called Camp Young Judaea, is on the lake.
