This place is a gem if you're looking to get back to nature. Built by the civilian conservation corps during the depression, it is very rustic with pit toilets and no showers. But it is beautiful, and much quieter than most campgrounds. Camp sites are...More

Great place to go if you are wanting to get back to nature. This is an unspoiled glimpse into the "wild side" of southern New Hampshire. You need to be a self sufficient camper and bring bug spray, but you will see and hear wildlife...More

My son got several leaches on him. I had them on me too but I noticed before they latched on. There are signs that say you shouldn't swim because of leaches.

Stayed in site 37, which can be a very long walk to lug all your stuff up but it is worth it. Site 37 has a path leading right to the water which is where we put our tent. We woke up right on the...More

This is a very nice state park and it is secluded. The camp sites are laid out well and there are some private sites that can only be accessed by hiking, some only by canoe. We had a hike in only site and the wildlife...More

Beautiful park. Enjoyed the quiet nights sleep and the sound of loons during the evening. Before leaving the next morning, stopped at the office and waited for staff to arrive so we could pay. The woman that arrived was unsavory to say the least. Maybe...More

We only camped here one night because the campground at Mt Sunapee State Park wasn't open for the season yet. This campground was good for its quiet, rustic feel, with plenty of loon sounds. I wouldn't recommend camping here in May since the black flies...More

This park is not near an interstate so it's a bit of ways from anywhere. But it's quiet, picturesque and beautiful. 7200+ acres, 35 camping sites, a small camp store, a picnic area with two swings and a slide. The picnic area is level and...More

I think your best bet would be to call the main state park office at (603) 271-3556. When I looked at the park, it was with a family reunion in mind so I really didn't scope out the camping sites. I did see camping near the... More
