VISITOR FEES Most of our campgrounds will charge a FEE when campers have visitors at their properties. You might ask WHY? Consider the expense of operating a camping facility from the cost of utilities, to maintaining pools, restrooms, insurance, safety concerns and the added strains on the entire property when visitors are present. Who’s to pay for all of this? We hope you’ll understand that visitor fees are just the price of admission to the campground’s facilities. Thank you

the all-american vacation

Making memories that will last a lifetime

A

camping vacation is an affordable way for friends and families to enjoy time together. With beautiful scenery and lots of attractions and outdoor activities, New Hampshire is made for camping. The Granite State is known throughout New England for clean, peaceful, family friendly campgrounds. The state’s natural beauty includes mountains, lakes, rivers and quaint towns. There’s lots to do and it’s all just a short drive away. Enjoying time with family and friends

Planning your trip to New Hampshire 1. Check the information in this guide. 2. Visit NHlovescampers.com. 3. Check out the state’s tourism website www.VisitNH.gov or call 1-800-FUN-IN-NH.

Want to give camping a try? Many campgrounds offer on-site trailers, park models and camping cabin rentals. If you don’t have camping equipment these give you a great way to get started.

The fresh scent of pine needles warmed by the sun, the smell of bacon cooking on the campfire, and the happy chatter of children playing outdoors are all part of the American experience, according to Laurie Bonica owner of Tamworth Camping Area in Tamworth, NH.

In addition to peace and quiet and the beauty of the natural world, campers throughout the state can enjoy a variety of fun things to do. Each day can bring a new adventure. Campers have plenty of options in New Hampshire from kayaking on a peaceful lake to swimming in a gentle river, picking blueberries, strawberries, apples or pumpkins, spending a day at the beach or exploring a tidal pool, hiking a mountain, or looking for loons, bald eagles or moose. Food lovers can nibble their way along a wine and cheese trail, visit one of the state’s wineries or enjoy a relaxing meal at a variety of restaurants suiting tastes from down-home cooking to fine dining.

“Camping is a way for families to reconnect in a slower-paced atmosphere where they can get close to nature and appreciate the small wonders of our natural world,” Bonica says.

Looking for a little excitement? Fasten your seatbelt. You’ll find NASCAR races at NH Motor Speedway in Loudon, one of the largest motorcycle rallies in the country in Laconia, white water rafting, hot air balloon rallies, amusement parks, water slides, ATV riding and surfing.

Jan Hussey of Whit’s End Campground in West Ossipee, NH echoes that theme. “When they go camping, people get together with family they may not have seen in some time. They cook and eat together, sit by the fire and tell stories about their past and present, disconnect from most of their technology for a couple of days, swim, fish, and otherwise enjoy the people they love,” she says.

Looking for entertainment? You can enjoy summer theater, concert venues featuring national country, pop, or rock bands, or bring your lawn chair and spend an evening on a New England town common listening to an old-fashioned town band. Continued on pg 79

Those who know, return time and time again to this relatively unknown and non-commercialized region of the state that is rich in history and has untouched natural beauty.

Shaped and polished by the ancient glaciers, this region is referred to as the Upper Connecticut River Valley (or Upper Valley). It spans portions of the New Hampshire counties of Grafton, Merrimack, and Sullivan with the Connecticut river flowing between and connecting to our bordering neighbor of Vermont. This results in a vibrant meld of art, science, nature, and history.

Offering an authentic New England atmosphere, the Upper Connecticut River Valley is home to quaint towns and villages with the architecture and ambiance that has been untouched by “progress.” Nationally recognized scenic byways with views of mountains, lakes, rivers, and farm land can be experienced while driving, biking, horseback riding, boating, kayaking, hiking, ATVing or just strolling.

The beauty and landscape has attracted world class educators, engineers, scientists, writers, artists, and craftsmen from around the world to make this their home. Agriculture rounds out the Upper Valley’s character with organic farms, orchards, private stock farms, tree farms, and maple sugaring.

Camping in the Upper Valley is not just a summer/fall activity. Combined with snowmobiling, skiing, cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, ice fishing and Winter Carnivals many campers enjoy winter camping in this full and robust region area of the state of New Hampshire.

Lakes Region Lake Winnipesaukee is just one of the many fantastic spots to stay near Lakes Region— New Hampshire’s Natural Playground

Science Center in Holderness, amusements at Weirs Beach, and Laconia, which is famous for its Motorcycle Week and the historic Belknap Mill. Shopping from small boutiques in resort towns to factory outlets, like Tanger Outlets in Tilton, can be found throughout this diverse region.

The Lakes Region is famous for its large, clear lakes and small ponds with 70,000 acres of pristine waterways but is also surrounded by mountains, deep woods, farmlands, and small quiet villages and busy resort towns. While there are 273 lakes and ponds in the region, one lake dominates them all, Lake Winnipesaukee, at 72 square-miles, 274 islands and 200 miles of shoreline.

Summer may be the Lakes Region's bestknown season, but wrap the hillsides in spring green, the blazing colors of fall or a thick blanket of snow, and it is every bit as magical. The region is an all-season vacation area where visitors return year after year. In autumn, harvest season offers fresh produce and colorful foliage that can be enjoyed from any drive. Come winter, there is ice fishing and ice sailing, skating and snowmobiling and world-class skiing (cross-country and downhill). Spring is the perfect time to watch exquisite glassware being made at Pepi Herrman Crystal in Gilford, or take a tour of the Hampshire Pewter Co. in Wolfeboro.

The lakes make the region a mecca for swimming, boating, fishing or water skiing. You can cruise Lake Winnipesaukee on the vessel Mount Washington or take a guided boat trip on Squam Lake, made famous in the film "On Golden Pond." There are also summer theaters, fairs, nightclubs and restaurants serving gourmet fare and others with a reputation for good home cooking.

Located in Central New Hampshire, the Lakes Region is an ideal base for traveling all over the state if you choose. The camping options span from small, quiet, primitive places to resorts with all the amusements to satisfy visitors of all interests.

Cultural attractions include the Museum of Childhood in Wakefield, The Wright Museum of World War II in Wolfeboro, the Antique Boat Museum in Wolfeboro, Moultonborough's Loon Center or Famous Castle in the Clouds, the New Hampshire Farm Museum in Milton, Squam Lake Natural

South Central–Merrimack Region Features the cities of Concord, Manchester and Nashua Visit Manchester’s SEE Science Center or take in a concert at the Verizon Wireless Arena. The seat of NH’s government and business, Concord hosts the Capital Center for the Arts and the Museum of New Hampshire History, a 19th century warehouse renovated to provide an up-to-date setting for such attractions as the Concord Coach. Explore the Museum of Family Camping, which traces the history of camping. Concord’s Coach & Eagle Trail provides a walking tour of 17 historic sites. Among the cultural and historical attractions are Currier Gallery of Art in Manchester, America's Stonehenge in Salem with its mysterious rock creations believed dating back 4000 years and the Hannah Duston Memorial in Concord. The Merrimack Valley was also an inspiration for Robert Frost where you can still visit the Frost Farm in Derry.

South Central — City Scene Meets Country Ease in Merrimack Valley Where the capital's name, Concord, is a synonym for "harmony," it is not surprising to find music and the performing arts central to life in the city and the entire Merrimack Valley Region. The state's three largest cities, Concord, Manchester, and Nashua, have an especially rich cultural life, with a variety of offerings year-round. The Merrimack Valley is sure to please campers seeking a bustling city environment or the quiet countryside. In the South Central Region of New Hampshire, also referred to as Daniel Webster country, it's easy to travel around the New Hampshire turnpikes. Shopping is abundant with malls, small shops and factory outlets. Campgrounds are idyllic, along scenic New England byways, yet just a few miles from the theater, fine dining, nightclubs, amusements and educational attractions.

For family amusement, ride the roller coaster at Canobie Lake Park, visit a petting zoo, see the show at the Christa McAuliffe Planetarium, visit an ancient culture at the Shaker Village in Canterbury or take in a Fisher Cats baseball game. The New Hampshire Motor Speedway in Loudon attracts fans from all over the country. You can visit a brewery and tour the Anheuser-Busch plant in Merrimack where the famous Clydesdale horses are stabled or tour and taste at the New Hampshire Winery in Henniker.

Pick your ideal location on the Region Map and then check out the Campgrounds in that area using the number code. don

White Mountains Region Mount Washington, Kancamagus Highway and Conway River or for the more adventurous, white-water canoeing or soaring down Wildcat Mountain on the ZipRider. Covered bridges are tucked into many back roads and take a drive along the Kancamagus Highway (Route 112) with 30 miles of spectacular viewing along the only National Scenic Byway in New England. Allow plenty of time to stop for a picnic, to view the scene from an overlook, or hike a short distance to a beautiful waterfall such as Arethusa or Franconia Falls.

White Mountains — Recreation Amidst Spectacular Scenery The White Mountains are best known for majestic peaks that may be viewed from the many scenic valleys of New Hampshire. The region boasts twenty 4,000-foot peaks and five summits higher than 5,000 feet, along with the highest mountain in the Northeast, 6,288 foot Mt. Washington. However, it is the 800,000acre White Mountain National Forest that truly shapes the region. Spectacular views from the top may be reached on foot, by car via the Auto Road, or from the historic Cog Railway. There are also cable cars, gondolas, chairlifts, and even helicopter flights throughout the region.

The White Mountains Region is also synonymous with recreation. Play tennis or golf at one of nine courses, hike, fish, hunt, swim, or go boating. In winter visit one of 13 ski resorts, along with snowmobiling, sledding, or snowshoeing. Enjoy the Conway Scenic Railroad or the 15-mile Hobo Railroad, the famous Flume Gorge and the historic former site of the Old Man of the Mountain and the new Old Man of the Mountain museum. Explore Lost River, the Polar Caves or relax with the family at Clark's Trading Post, Story Land, Santa's Village or Six Gun City and Fort Splash Water Park. Spend some time shopping (tax free) at the many factory outlet stores, particularly in the North Conway area. There also are many small shops for the antique collector, or any other collector.

A family may choose from a broad variety of campgrounds from the state’s more populous southern section to northern moose country. If you like rustic, it's here. The White Mountains Region is made up by 8000,000 acres of National Forest with waterfalls that thunder and others that just trickle gently. There is great hiking at Great Glen Trails, canoeing down the Saco

Pick your ideal location on the Region Map and then check out the Campgrounds in that area using the number or letter code.

Yes, it is a steep, but very short climb, nothing to be concerned about with that RV. Then you're on your way down towards Errol and Lake Umbagog, where the majestic American Eagle has begun to nest once again. Stop along your drive to take photos, pick wild blueberries or bring a picnic lunch to Beaver Brook Falls in Colebrook.

The Great North Woods can be summed up in two words: unspoiled wilderness. Truly the last frontier, it is the northern most region of New Hampshire, stretching above the White Mountains, to the Canadian border. Its proximity to Canada's Province of Quebec, as well as the Maine and Vermont borders, has resulted in a fascinating mix of cultures and outlooks. Vast woods and water dominate the landscape in the Great North Woods. Forest makes up 97% of the land, much of which is privately held but often open for recreational use. The famous Connecticut Lakes and the upper area of the Connecticut River offer trout and salmon fishing. Sporting adventure is a way of life, from hunting to fishing, camping, hiking, boating, rockclimbing and snowmobiling (with more miles of trails than state

Heading south on Route 16 brings you to Thirteen Mile Woods, a beautiful drive thru undeveloped and uninhabited woods along the Androscoggin River, a favorite spot for fishing, canoeing and kayaking. As you enter the outskirts of the City of Berlin you can imagine the lumberjacks of days long past, as they jumped across the logs damming up the river, trying to keep the logs moving towards the old paper mill. For your own adventure, hike or bike the cross-country trails, the same trails that are explored on skis and snowmobiles in winter. The Great North Woods Region is the epitome of the simple life with white steeple churches, farmers markets and hometown parades. Consistent with the region itself, the camping offers outstanding scenery and recreation, with a number of state parks as well as private campgrounds to choose from.

PROPANE SAFETY AT CAMPGROUNDS

CAMPING ETIQUETTE FOR PETS 1. Do Not Allow pets to roam freely around the campground. 2. Do Not Allow pets to go out early in the a.m. to do their duty on your neighbor’s site or worse yet on their equipment. 3. Do Not leave pets unattended on your site, which causes them to bark and whine disturbing fellow campers. 4. Do pick up after your pet. 5. Do Not Bring pets to beach and pool area.

This camping and hunting season, get your firewood from a vendor close to your destination. Don’t pack your own! Invasive insects and diseases in dead and dying wood threaten our native trees and forests. If you move firewood, you could be giving these pests a free ride to new territory. Every camper, cabin owner, and recreationist should leave their firewood at home and obtain it near their destination… that could make a long-term difference in the health of our forests and the quality of our recreational experiences. 62

Information provided by the NATIONAL LP-GAS ASSOCIATION • If an RV has been idle and unused for some time, make some safety checks before using the LP-gas appliances. • Check the entire vehicle, especially the propane system, for possible tampering. Make sure the propane tanks are properly secured. If the cylinders are not mounted on the vehicle, it is recommended that they be placed on level ground, on a firm foundation. • Check all vents (including the regulator vent) and combustion air intakes to make sure they are clear, and contain no restrictions such as foreign matter, bird nests, mouse nests, or mud-dauber wasp structures. • Clean away any debris from around burners and pilot lights such as burnt match sticks, bits of food, etc. • Before turning on the gas at the tanks, be sure all appliance valves are turned OFF, and check to determine which pilot lights must be lit. After the gas has been turned on, be sure all pilots are lit. • As a precaution to determine if any leaks have developed, give your RV a “sniff” test, do a soap bubble test at all connections, or contact your local LP-gas supplier to perform a pressure test on your system.

TIPS FOR CAMPERS BRAKE FOR MOOSE IT COULD SAVE YOUR LIFE! Today, in spite of a limited annual hunt, moose are found throughout the state, and so are moose-car collisions We want you to enjoy traveling in New Hampshire. Here are some things you need to know to reduce the likelihood of serious injury and extensive damage to your vehicle. The average moose weighs 1,000 lbs! That’s 4 times the size of a big trophy white-tailed deer. The hood of your vehicle fits neatly under the belly of the moose Moose are a safety concern primarily from May to October. Don’t assume the moose has seen you and will wait until you pass to cross the road.

ew Hampshire provides many special places to get away into the natural world of nature. For some folks this means tenting or camping at a smaller, more remote campground where they are “roughing it”or getting “away from it all”. To other campers, the wilderness means getting back into the more remote backcountry where supplies or services are limited or not available. New Hampshire provides many miles of trails including a 160-mile portion of the famous Appalachian Trail from Maine to Georgia.

Seacoast Region Historic Portsmouth and Hampton Beach Seacoast—The Essence of New England's Oceanfront

The attraction of the Seacoast is, of course, the Atlantic oceanfront. In the 18 miles of New Hampshire’s coastline, there are long, sandy beaches, working ports, offshore islands, surfstung rocks, and popular resort towns and villages that date back nearly four hundred years. Many visitors begin their tours of New Hampshire along the coast, drawn by the sound and scent of the sea. With beaches like Jenness, Wallis Sands and North Hampton State Beach, the stretch of sandy shore is the magnet that brings visitors to the region, but there are enough attractions to spend the whole summer. Indeed there are campgrounds in the Seacoast Region that are strictly for seasonals but there are still plenty of places for the traveling camper. However, we suggest you plan ahead and make reservations.

commissioned at the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard and you can also venture inside the smaller USS Albacore, built at Portsmouth and now on display at Albacore Park.

Portsmouth, the attractive old-fashioned city that is the hub of this area, is a place of historic homes, beautiful parks, and a variety of museums and amusements. Window shop as you walk the brick paved streets or relax at a sidewalk café. Narrow lanes lead down to the Olde Port area midst tugboats and small gourmet restaurants. Strawberry Banke is a historic recreation of life in Colonial days. The Submarine USS New Hampshire was

Hampton Beach is not only for sunbathers and swimmers, it's a place to go for a variety of fun from theaters and nightclubs to amusement rides, arcade games and specialty shops. You can spend the day on a deep sea fishing expedition, take a narrated boat tour of the harbor or go on a whale watch. Enjoy seashore nature at Odiorne Point State Park or shop at the malls, and factory outlets. Explore the shops and the homes in the historic small towns such as Exeter, Durham and Newcastle. Take a mini trolley ride around the region to get acquainted. Spend some time enjoying the beauty of the flowers in Portsmouth's Prescott Park or at Fuller Gardens in North Hampton. Explore the Great Bay Discovery Center or Great Bay Wildlife Reserve in Greenland, the Seacoast Science Center in Rye or Exeter’s American Independence Museum. Take time to walk the streets and pathways or just go bicycling for a day.

Campgrounds small and large, some with waterfront sites, may be found in the Seacoast region. Campers come earlier and stay longer at the Seacoast than elsewhere in the state. It's a region that is easy to love, a place most folks are reluctant to leave.

Monadnock Region The perfect mix of country charm and easy going lifestyle Most visitors plan a stop at the Cathedral of the Pines in Rindge, an outdoor shrine honoring the men and women who have died in the service of their nation. Seated on pews in the shade of tall pines, the visitor is inspired by a view of "The Mountain" beyond the altar, which is built of stones from every corner of the world. Visit Chesterfield Gorge and walk pathways through the deep cuts in rock formations.

Monadnock Region— Quintessential New England The Monadnock Region is the epitome of New England picture books. You will find small villages where white clapboard churches and town halls edge manicured town greens. Rolling fields with neatly planted rows quilt the hillsides and country roads lined by rock walls inspire exploration at a leisurely pace. The views compare with something by Currier and Ives with the backdrop of Mount Monadnock reaching 3,165 feet. It is said to be the second most frequently climbed mountain in the world, after Japan's Mt. Fuji.

Antique shops, summer theaters, and music festivals are plentiful. Visit the Apple Hill Center and enjoy Chamber Music, or you can spend an afternoon at Friendly Farm in Dublin to picnic and pet the farm animals. Families can watch chicks hatching, a working beehive and young animals nursing. The Monadnock Region is an all season, small town, slow-paced camping experience. In the spring it all comes into bloom, which is a perfect time to visit Rhododendron State Park in Fitzwilliam. Pisgah State Park, the largest in New Hampshire, encompasses an area that includes Hinsdale, Winchester and Chesterfield. Pisgah offers many activities incluing hiking, mountain biking, fishing, horseback rifing, ATV and snow mobiling. Summer brings fishing, swimming, boating, auto racing, and dog racing at nearby tracks. Spofford lake has a public swiming beach. Take a hayride or shop the flea markets and craft displays at Colony Mill Marketplace. The fall season is as spectacular as anywhere in the state. Plan your visit around the Hillsborough Balloon Festival and Fair, Winchester Pickle Festival or the Keene Pumpkin Fesitval. Winter brings cross-country skiers to the woodland trails and skaters to the many ponds. Visitors also enjoy winter sleigh rides at Silver Ranch in Jaffrey all of it midst the beauty of scenery fit for a Christmas card.

Located in the southwestern corner of the state, the Monadnock region offers campers an opportunity to spend a vacation or a weekend in an area that typifies small town New England, village greens with a bandstand for evening concerts, white church steeples poking above the trees and waterways accented with stone arch bridges or covered bridges (there are 8 in the region) that symbolize small town New Hampshire. The center of it all is the attractive little city of Keene with its broad Main Street decorated with floral displays. Get a glimpse into the past at Keene’s Thorne Art Gallery and places such as Fitzwilliam Jaffrey, and Peterborough, referred to as the “Our Town” of Wilder fame.

The All-American Vacation Continued from page 7 And of course, in a state that’s 80% forested we offer plenty of fishing and hunting opportunities too. Get more bang for your buck The state’s 170 campgrounds cater to families and offer activities for all ages. “On the fourth of July, we have the best fireworks show in the North Country,” Crosby Peck of Rogers Campground in Lancaster, NH says. The campground is also hosts a horseshoe tournament, face painting, and a bike parade. At Roberts Knoll Campground in Alton. NH, campers can enjoy an ice cream social, construct a float, ride in the local Fourth of July parade, and then enjoy a hot dog cookout, according to campground owner Sylvia Leggett. Sandy Beach RV Resort in Contoocook, NH often has a full schedule of fun on tap including dances with a DJ and a live band, a barbeque, horseshoes, basketball and volleyball games, as well as arts and crafts for children, says campground manager Gregg Goldberg.

all-American family vacation is about food, fun and family. Camping allows for all three at the same time. “Getting back to nature in the great outdoors – whether it’s hiking, biking, boating or hitting a whiffle ball in the field with the kids, throwing a Frisbee, flying a kite, catching fire flies at night, playing flashlight tag in the field, then, sitting around the campfire cooking dinner or making s’mores,” she adds. “All can be done as a family, and camping is still one of the least expensive ways to get more bang for your buck in getting away from home,” she says.

All Seasons of Camping in New Hampshire!

T

housands of people enjoy the popular pastime of camping in New Hampshire during the summer months. Many of our campgrounds open early and close late, extending the camping season well beyond the months of summer. Have you considered New Hampshire in the spring and fall? Many of our campgrounds offer an extended season and are eager to welcome you to their campgrounds. Look for special reduced offseason rates as an incentive. It is also a time of year when the more popular areas are less crowded.

Spring in New Hampshire is a time of beauty as many trees and flowers come to life after the winter months and the state gradually blooms into color. It is a time of winter run off with great paddling on our many rivers. Come early enough and you can participate in the “sugar off’ time with the air full of the sweet smell of maple syrup. Come a bit

later in time for the beginning of the fresh water fishing season for trout and salmon. Fall is another glorious season as the crowds thin out and the trees begin their annual displays of rich vibrant colors. It is a time of local Agricultural Fairs across 80

the state. A time of warm days and cool evening that locals find quite comfortable. A great time for hiking, fishing and hunting or just exploring all of the special places New Hampshire has to offer. And don’t forget winter. For the more hardy there are winter camping experiences in the backcountry or in a local campground close to one of New Hampshire’s many ski areas for downhill skiers, snowboarders and cross country skiers. And lots of trails for snowmobile riders across the state, offering miles and miles of riding from the lower part of the state all the way up to the Canadian border.


TIPS FOR CAMPERS

WINTER CAMPING EXPERIENCE Winter camping isn’t just for skiers and snowmobilers anymore. Each year, an increasing number of campers are winterizing their equipment so they can enjoy a weekend or a vacation in the outdoors at a time of year when the campgrounds are quiet and uncrowded.

CAMPING SAFETY

For...

Kids!

1. Toasting marshmallows is fun but be careful cause they are very hot inside. 2. Let your folks start grills and campfires. 3. Don’t forget... to look both ways when riding your bikes or scooters around the campground. 4. Always have a grownup with you when you’re near the water. 5. If you get lost in the woods make a lot of noise. STAY IN ONE PLACE. 6. Fireworks and sparklers are exciting but you should only use them with a grownup 7. Making new friends can be the best part about camping but remember to ALWAYS... ALWAYS let your folks know where you are. 8. Playgrounds are great but treat things with respect and follow the safety rules. 9. Animals are cute and fun to watch. But be careful you don’t get too close. A scared animal could be DANGEROUS.

For...Hikers! Ten Essentials

ITEMS YOU SHOULD CARRY ON EVERY TRIP: 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10.

Extra food and water Flashlight or headlamp Matches/firestarters First-aid kit/repair kit Map Compass Warm clothing Whistle Rain/wind gear Pocket knife

For more on how you can hike safe and HikeSafe’s educational programs and initiatives, visit www.hikesafe.com

For...Campers! Please remember that as a camper you are a visitor, and to some of our wildlife... an intruder. Please Do Not feed the animals, their survival depends upon their ability to forage for themselves. Observe them, enjoy their company, but always remember that YOU are a visitor in THEIR HOME.

LEARN TO LIVE WITH BEARS… Bear/camper conflicts are most often created by people who (knowingly or innocently) trigger a natural reaction on the part of the bear that sometimes results in damage to personal property. To prevent conflicts with bears, follow a few simple rules: 1. Be Very Careful With Food Scraps. 2. Clean Up After Every Meal or Snack. 3. Do Not Dump Scraps of Meat, Food or Fat Drippings Into Your Fire. 4. Learn the Schedule of Trash Pick-Up In Your Area. 5. Do Not Cook Food Or Eat Inside Your Tent. 6. Hang Food At Least 10 Feet Above the Ground on a Limb That Cannot Support a Bear’s Weight Do not attempt to feed, tease or approach any bear that you do see. View bears from a safe distance. For more information about black bears, contact the NH Fish & Game Dept. at (603) 271-3211. For more information, visit: www.wildlife.state.nh.us
