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!

Also shown on page 16!

Landscape Scenes can include hiking, biking, paddle boarding, etc.

Win $250!

great north woods region

points of interest: Kevin Kraft photographed his son intently watching the rushing waterfall at Garfield Falls in Pittsburg, NH.

The unspoiled landscape of the Great North Woods region is ideal for outdoor enthusiasts. Campers enjoy a refreshing blend of recreation and scenery, combined with the peace and quiet of the wilderness. Stretching up to the Canadian border with 97 percent of the land covered in forest, the Great North Woods region offers some of the best hunting, hiking, rock climbing, ATVing, and snowmobiling in New Hampshire. Here, trails outnumber highways and wildlifewatching becomes a sport of its own, with the moose population upward of 3,500. The Connecticut lakes and the upper Connecticut River offer great trout and salmon fishing. Scenic drives are the region’s leading attraction, so bring a camera to capture the natural splendor. Head up Route 3 to view rolling farmland along the Connecticut River, and enjoy a picnic at Beaver Brook Falls in Colebrook. Drive across Route 26 and you’ll pass the historic Balsams Grand Resort Hotel in Dixville Notch, where many first-in-the-nation primary votes were cast in the Ballot Room. Then head to Lake Umbagog, where bald eagles nest. Further south on Route 16 is Thirteen Mile Woods, a stretch of untouched forest along the Androscoggin River, a favorite for kayaking, canoeing and fishing. Enjoy 1,000 miles of interconnected ATV Trails – Ride The Wilds. Many of the towns are ATV friendly where you can drive your ATV on roads.

Overlooking the Androscoggin, the historic town of Berlin was once the center of the pulp and paper industry in New England, and the state’s fourth-largest city. Today, Berlin is home to Moffett House Museum, St. Kieran’s Community Center for the Arts, Berlin Fish Hatchery, and Jericho Mountain State Park. Choose from many state parks or private campgrounds, and create your own adventure by hiking or biking along the same crosscountry trails that skiers and snowmobilers enjoy in the winter.

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 or visit: www.wildlife.state.nh.us

Washington Auto Road! Alton Weagle had a passion for Mt. Washington. To show his passion, he climbed the Mt. Washington Auto Road in a number of unique ways: by car, on foot, walking backwards, blindfolded and finally pushing a wheelbarrow full of sugar…just to name a few. This day honors his spirit and the spirit of all those from camels to unicycles to Segways to pogo sticks to autos who have been the first up the mountain. www.mt-washington.com

white mountains region

Kevin Kraft is our photo contest winner for “Best Landscape Scene”with this awesome picture taken at Franconia Notch.

Renowned for its majestic peaks, natural beauty, and boundless recreation opportunities, the White Mountains Region is a four-season destination for the entire family. Avid hikers seek out this region for its 800,000-acre White Mountain National Forest, home to 48 peaks over 4,000 ft. as well as the northeast’s tallest peak, Mount Washington at 6,288 ft. But you need not hike to enjoy the area’s grandeur. Spectacular views are yours via the historic Mt. Washington Auto Road and the Mt. Washington Cog Railway, as well as gondolas, chairlifts, Canopy Tour, and aerial tramways. Outdoor recreation opportunities abound. Take a drive along the 30-mile Kancamagus Highway and National Scenic Byway (Rte 112), or enjoy a ride aboard the Conway Scenic Railroad. Canoe, kayak, swim or fish in the Saco River. Zoom down a zipline at White Mountain-area resorts such as Bretton Woods, Cannon, Cranmore, Loon, and Wildcat. Bicycle or mountain-bike along meandering paths or challenging trails. Play tennis or golf at one of the region’s nine courses. Bring a picnic and relax at Arethusa or Franconia Falls or the spectacular Flume Gorge. Snowmobile or snowshoe in the winter wonderland of the White Mountains region, and visit the area’s 13 ski resorts for skiing and snowboarding opportunities for all, from novice to expert. Family attractions range from Story Land and Santa’s Village to the Polar Caves, Lost River, Clark’s Trading Post, and the Mt. Washington Observatory and Weather Discovery Center. For year-round shopping and dining, the region offers factory outlets, specialty shops, microbreweries and diverse cuisine.

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.

dartmouth/lake sunapee region

points of interest: • Mt Sunapee State Park and Beach, Newbury (summer adventure park, winter skiing) Kristin Love took this great picture of Lake Sunapee taken from The Fells Historic Estate & Gardens with heather in full bloom.

Shaped by ancient glaciers and widely known as the Upper Valley, the Dartmouth/Lake Sunapee region has charm that stems from its rich history, striking landscape, abundant natural resources, and agricultural roots. Artists, writers, educators and craftsmen from around the world have made their homes here. Situated on the west side of the state, the region is home to Dartmouth College and other respected institutions. Textile and other manufacturing played a major role in the area’s history, and agriculture rounds out its character with organic farms, orchards, private stock farms, tree farms and maple sugaring. Outdoor enthusiasts find four-season opportunities to explore the region’s splendor – via foot, bicycle, horseback, kayak, boat, snowshoes, and snowmobile! Hikers enjoy the Appalachian Trail and Mount Sunapee, plus hundreds of other scenic trails ranging from easy to expert; golfers enjoy lush greens; boaters and swimmers enjoy the nine-mile Lake Sunapee; and skiers and snowmobilers enjoy groomed trails or forge their own. Summer visitors to the Mount Sunapee Resort enjoy the Outdoor Adventure Park with Ziplines, a Tree-top Obstacle Course, plus hiking, concerts, Segway tours, and brewfests. Snow skiing and snowboarding are popular winter activities at Mount Sunapee. Nationally-acclaimed scenic byways beckon motorists and cyclists to experience spectacular vistas and landmarks such as the Pier Bridge, the longest wooden covered bridge in the world.

Hiking to Solitude One of the best hikes in the

Sunapee area takes you up to Lake Solitude and the White Cliffs. It’s a wonderful 2-to-3 hour hike. If you’re hiking with your dog, this is perfect as there are plenty of brook crossings and of course the lake at the top, so no need to carry water for your dogs.

“Walk your horses or pay two dollar fine”

That’s the sign you’ll see as you head into the CornishWindsor Covered Bridge in Cornish, NH. This bridge is the longest span covered bridge in North America. It is still open to passenger cars and is two lanes. It spans the mighty Connecticut River and connects two states and two local communities. Many a tourist has stopped by to photograph it (a much better shot on the NH side as you can have Mt. Ascutney in the background).

things to do…

The “Goshen Ocean” Goshen Ocean is the nickname given to Gunnison Lake, created in 1983 as part of a multi-phase federal dam and flood control project. The dam was built as part of a ten dam project intended to protect rivers and watersheds extending to the Connecticut River. Gunnison Lake is beautiful and peaceful. The water is the clearest and cleanest you will ever see in a man-made lake. It is an excellent place for swimming, kayaking or canoeing, picnicking and hiking. Formerly the land was a farm. Today old stonewalls, now underwater, can be seen by kayakers and canoeists. Enfield Shaker Village Nestled in a valley

between Mt. Assurance and Mascoma Lake, in Enfield, NH, the Enfield Shaker site has been cherished for over 200 years. At its peak in the mid 19th century, the community was home to three “Families” of Shakers. They practiced equality of the sexes and races, celibacy, pacifism and communal ownership of property. Shakers farmed over 3,000 acres of land, educated children in model schools and worshipped in the “Shaker Way.” www.shakermuseum.org

That’s Entertainment The Lake Sunapee region comes alive in the summer with all kinds of great entertainment. The free outdoor concerts in New London, Newbury, Newport and Sunapee Harbor feature an incredible variety of live music including blues, rock, jazz, bluegrass, pop, big band and reggae. Annual League of NH Craftsmen’s Fair

Starting the first Saturday in August and running for nine days, the Annual Craftsmen’s Fair showcases the work of some of the finest craftspeople in the country. The Fair is the place to explore how design and passion inspire our lives. See and shop for one-of-a-kind fine craft that is both beautiful and functional.

Richard Hunt, a seasonal camper at Silver Lake Park Campground, photographed these two fledgling Bald Eagles, hatched in one of two nests located on an island in Silver Lake.

CAMPING SAFETY

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.

For... Kids!

1. Toasting marshmallows is fun but be careful because 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.

monadnock region

points of interest: • Keene Swamp Bat Baseball Team • Hillsborough Balloon Festival, Hillsborough (July) Sonya Reed photographed her daughter and a friend beginning an ambitious MSG (Monadnock-Sunapee Greenway) trail.

The Monadnock Region is symbolic of old New England charm. Small villages and traditional homes, churches, farms and rolling countryside are set to the backdrop of Mount Monadnock, one of the most frequently-climbed mountains on earth and the subject of Ralph Waldo Emerson’s famous poem, “Monadnoc.” The hub of the region is the attractive city of Keene, with a broad main street and lively downtown filled with shops, restaurants, and the Thorne Art Gallery. Other area events include the Hillsborough Balloon Festival in July, the Cheshire Fair in Swanzey in August, the Winchester Pickle Festival in September, and the Pumpkin Festival at the Cheshire Fairgrounds (Swanzey) in October. Also the Festival of Fireworks by Atlas is back in Jaffrey the 3rd Saturday of August. This region offers an all-season, slow-paced camping experience. Spring is the ideal time to visit Rhododendron State Park in Fitzwilliam. Enjoy the Apple Hill Center in Nelson for Chamber Music, and Friendly Farm in Dublin to picnic and pet the farm animals. MacDowell Artist Colony in Peterborough is the oldest of its kind in the nation, and the Cathedral of the Pines in Rindge is an outdoor shrine that honors the men and women who have died in service to our nation. Go hiking or biking at Miller State

things to do… Climb the Twins There are two “Monadnocks” in the region. Mount Monadnock in Jaffrey, one of the mostclimbed mountains in the world and lesser known “Pack Monadnock,” located in Peterborough’s Miller State Park. The bigger Monadnock at 3,165' offers 40 mi. of well-maintained trails. Although 2,290' Pack Monadnock is the smaller of the two, it’s also a bit more steep in places. Tackle them both! Feeling lazy, take the auto road at Pack Monadnock to the summit. Mt. Monadnock does not allow dogs, but Miller State Park does.

Accessible Trails The longest accessible trail system in a mountainside setting in the country, the Gregg and Dutton Brook trails at Crotched Mountain Rehabilitation Center in Greenfield provide easy access for people of all abilities, including people who use wheelchairs or other devices for mobility, seniors and families with children. See page 35 for more information. Stonewall-ing in Keene The Stonewall Farm

in Keene is an agricultural gem. It’s a working farm using both historic and modern farming techniques that includes an animal feeding program, farmstand, a learning center, a discovery room and more. Visit Belgian draft horses, a dairy barn where you can observe a daily milking, and a sugar house. Set in a scenic valley, the Farm is open 365 days a year.

Gorgeous Gorge The Chesterfield Gorge Natural Area is a 13-acre hiker’s paradise. Cross bridges, listen to running water, stand beside cascading waterfalls stemming from Wilde Brook, and make your way across small streams and scenic paths. Well-maintained bridges will help you view the steep gorge and beautiful cascades and waterfalls. Enjoy this recreational area that is more reminiscent of the White Mountains. Rhododendron Reverie Located on Rt. 119W, the best time to visit the 16-acre grove at Rhododendron State Park in Fitzwilliam is mid-July, when the fragrant clusters of flowers burst into bloom. A wildflower trail within the 2,723-acre park is in perpetual bloom from early spring through fall. The trail runs adjacent to the Rhododendron grove, which is the largest in New England. Bird lovers will appreciate hearing the songbirds that make their home here. Rail Trailing The 42-mile long Cheshire Rail Trail

is thought to be the second longest rail trail in New Hampshire. It runs from Keene to Winchester. Mostly a dirt trail for mountain biking, horseback riding and hiking, the trail offers a variety of settings including the Stone Arch Bridge that crosses the Ashuelot River. In winter, cross-country skiers, mushers and snowmobilers also enjoy this old railroad bed for recreation.

The year the first free public library in the United States was opened in Peterborough.

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.

Amanda Walker photographed her son, Evan, catching this beauty at Woodmore Campground on Lake Contoocook.

Accessible Trails in NH

The longest accessible trail system in a mountainside setting in the country, the Gregg and Dutton Brook trails at Crotched Mountain Rehabilitation Center in Greenfield provide easy access for people of all abilities, including people who use wheelchairs or other devices for mobility, seniors and families with children.

The trails combine hardpack surfaces, boardwalks, moderate grades, switchbacks, and rest stops to create a natural, yet accessible, hiking experience for everyone. Each trail provides a different outdoor experience and meets the Federal accessibility standards released by the U.S. Forest Service in 2013. The Dutton Brook trail winds through the woods and around a beaver-built wetland. The Gregg trail meanders up through a meadow, forest and blueberry fields to a scenic vista. The 2 ½ miles of trails provide opportunities for hikers to see wildflowers, mountain views, and wildlife. Interpretive signs inform hikers about the outdoor environment. For more information, visit crotchedmountain.org. Some accessible trails of the White Mountain National Forest include Forest Discovery Trail and Lincoln Woods Trail, both located along the Kancamagus Scenic Byway. For more information on these and other accessible trails, contact the White Mountain Visitor Center at (603) 745-3816.

seacoast region

points of interest: • Hampton Beach, Hampton Photo Contest Participant Melinda Avellino took this great picture at 3 Ponds Campground in Brentwood, NH.

The Seacoast Region features 18 miles of Atlantic coastline, with long sandy beaches, working ports, offshore islands, and popular resort towns that date back nearly 400 years. At the hub of the region, the city of Portsmouth (settled in 1623) combines modern day convenience with historic charm. The Olde Port and downtown areas are home to brick-paved streets, historic buildings, art galleries, specialty shops, jazz clubs, sidewalk cafes and award-winning restaurants. Prescott Park features beautiful gardens and hosts concerts and festivals. Strawbery Banke Museum provides an historic recreation of life in Colonial days. Neighboring towns such as Dover, Durham, Exeter, Greenland, Lee and Newmarket also have much to offer. Tour the Children’s Museum of New Hampshire in Dover, the Seacoast Science Center in Rye, or Great Bay Discovery Center and Great Bay Wildlife Reserve in Greenland. History buffs will enjoy Exeter, one of the first four settlements in the state and its capital during the Revolutionary War. Exeter is home to the American Independence Museum, and Phillips Exeter Academy is one of the nation’s finest preparatory boarding schools. There are several breweries and wineries worth exploring… Flag Hill Winery in Lee, Redhook Ale Brewery in Portsmouth, and Throwback Brewery located in North Hampton.

For a quieter experience, visit Wallis Sands State Park or Jenness State Beach. Explore walking trails or enjoy a picnic at Odiorne Point State Park in Rye. The historic and remote Isles of Shoals, located six miles off the coast, is a great day-trip option.

Route 121A Sandown, NH

Where the Potters are If you like to watch artists at work, take a trip to Salmon Falls Stoneware in Dover. The beloved stoneware is highly prized and has become an American tradition for more than 20 years. Hand-made and hand-decorated, the pieces are uniquely New England, making this shop a true landmark in the City of Dover. No Ordinary Odiorne Visit The Seacoast Center at Odiorne Point State Park. The state park is worth exploring all by itself, for its 350-acre park with hiking trails and multiple habitats, located right on the Atlantic. The Seacoast Science Center offers a tide pool touch-tank, interpretive exhibits, a 32-foot skeleton of a humpback whale, amazing views of the seashore, and a rare blue lobster in their “Gulf of Maine” exhibit hall. Why Rye? Rye Harbor State Park showcases the rocky New Hampshire shore better than any other location along the 18-mile coastline of the state. Saltwater fishing is popular with the many chartered boats that set out from the harbor. This is also a popular spot for weddings and picnics. Escape the hustle and bustle of Hampton Beach with a short ride to Rye. Also explore Rye Beach and Wallis Sands State Park while visiting Rye. Go Back in Time Strawbery Banke Museum in

Portsmouth provides visitors with the opportunity to experience and imagine how people lived throughout four centuries of New England history. This is achieved through restored furnished houses, exhibits, period gardens, historic landscapes, and costumed role players. www.nhlovescampers.com

Wilderness Camping & Hiking

N

ew Hampshire provides many special places to get away into 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 back country 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.

The Northern Forest Canoe Trail (NFCT) links the waterways of New York, Vermont, Québec, New Hampshire and Maine.

Planning and being prepared are the keys to a successful wilderness camping experience.

A Few of New Hampshire’s More Popular Hikes 1. Hut-to-Hut Presidential Traverse Hiking the Presidential Range from end-to-end is one of the United States’ classic treks. Of course, numerous trails can be used to accomplish this trip. Gorham, NH - Hiking - 25.5 miles  2. Franconia Ridge This trip is easily near the top of the list of best hikes in New England. Of course, Franconia Ridge also can be a very busy place on any weekend with good weather. Lincoln, NH - Hiking - 8.9 miles  3. Arethusa Falls Trails Dropping more than 200 feet in a swath of lacy mist, the plunge of Bemis Rock creates New Hampshire’s highest falls and a premier natural wonder. North Conway, NH - Hiking - 4.5 miles  4. Mount Washington via Boott Spur At 6,288 feet Mount Washington is the highest point in New England, and its weather is considered the worst in the world. Gorham, NH - Hiking - 9.5 miles  5. Mount Washington, Ammonoosuc Ravine Trail The Ammonoosuc Ravine Trail is the most direct western route to the alpine splendor that cloaks Mount Washington’s shoulders. Berlin, NH - Hiking - 9 miles  6. Mount Monadnock, White Cross Trail A solitary peak with centuries of tradition, Mount Monadnock is one of the world’s most frequently climbed summits, New Hampshire’s version of Mount Fuji. Nashua, NH - Hiking - 4.5 miles

8. Mount Major Locate a short hike to a beautiful view on one of the main tourist arteries in the Lakes Region and you’re sure to generate plenty of interest. Within easy driving distance of Meredith and Weirs Beach. Laconia, NH - Hiking - 3 miles  Photo courtesy of Alexandra Baer at Bald Mt.

NH IN

7. Mount Cardigan A challenging hike to one of the best viewpoints in New Hampshire. The state of New Hampshire’s website for Cardigan State Park lists hiking as the only activity in this 5,600-acre park. Bristol, NH - Hiking - 5.6 miles 

9. Mount Pawtuckaway (North Peak) An interesting boulder field, good wildlife habitat, and excellent views on one of the best hikes in southeastern New Hampshire. Deerfield, NH - Hiking 6 miles 

10. Appalachian Trail: Mount Washington & the Southern Presidential Range Nearly two centuries after it was first blazed, the Crawford Path to the summit of Mount Washington remains one of the grandest walks in America. The nation’s oldest continuously maintained footpath. Willey House, NH - Hiking - 12.4 miles  11. Mount Lafayette / Mount Lincoln, Bridle Path Loop Trailheads located within yards of an interstate highway seldom promise extraordinary mountain adventure. All the more special, then, is this classic loop hike that departs the Franconia Notch Parkway. Littleton, NH - Hiking - 8 miles  12. Mount Chocorua, Champney Brook Trail Originating from the magnificent Kancamagus Highway, the Champney Brook Trail ascends the gradual, northern facet of Mount Chocorua’s jutting peak. Conway, NH - Hiking - 7.25 miles  13. Crotched Mountain The path to Crotched Mountain provides the finest views for the least effort of any walking trail in the Monadnock Region. This exceptional family outing opens wide-angle vistas of southwestern New Hampshire. Greenfield, NH - Hiking - 3 miles  14. Mount Chocorua Mount Chocorua (pronounced Chu-COREooh-a) is a popular peak at the eastern end of the Sandwich Range, south of the Kancamagus Highway. Chocorua, NH - Hiking - 7.5 miles  15. Belknap Mountain, Red Trail Belknap Mountain rises 600 feet above the bald pate of Mount Major, yet thanks to the carriage road, the walk to its summit is much less demanding than the ascent of its smaller neighbor. Gilford, NH - Hiking - 1.6 miles  Descriptions were taken from the following sources: From the guidebook “Discover the White Mountains of New Hampshire” From the guidebook “Hiking New Hampshire” From the guidebook “Exploring the Appalachian Trail: Hikes in Northern New England” Read more at Trails.com: Best Hiking in New Hampshire
