The town of Woodstock, in Grafton County, New Hampshire, includes the unincorporated village of North Woodstock, which is the commercial center of the town. Woodstock is mostly forested, with parts of the White Mountain National Forest in the east and western parts of the town, and the Appalachian Trail crossing the northwestern corner of Woodstock, Russell Pond Campground in the east, and the Lost River Reservation west of North Woodstock. When it was first granted in 1763, the town was known as Peeling, which was changed to Fairfield in 1771, and Woodstock in 1840. Its early industries were based on logging, with a gradual shift toward tourism outdoor recreation. The Hubbard Brook Experimental Forest, maintained by the United States Forest Service, is in the southern part of town. Woodstock is south of Lincoln and north of Thornton.
