VISITOR FEES

One of the most perplexing problems in the camping industry today is visitors. Most campers fail to understand why a campground owner requires their visitors to pay a fee for entering and using the facilities. It is not that the campground owner doesn’t want visitors, it is simply that the facilities can only handle so many people. Excess people cause strains on restrooms, pools, and other facilities. They cause extra utility expenses which have to be paid. Who’s to pay for all this? You the camper? No, the user, the visitor. Please advise all visitors prior to arrival that they will be charged a fee for use of the facilities. Thank you

Recommended Fishing Waters

Editor’s Note: The following list of lakes, ponds and streams—as well as those listed in the other regions—will hopefully be a handy addition to a fisherman’s places-to-go file. While fishing old or new haunts the Fish & Game Department would like to remind sportsmen to respect property, both public and private. Everyone participating in a sport is judged by an individual’s actions.

PROPANE SAFETY AT CAMPGROUNDS 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.

ountry camping close to city fun awaits12the traveler in the South Central Region of New Hampshire also known as 10 the Merrimack Valley. Whether on a vacation or a weekend, or spending an entire summer in a campground there is 31 much to choose in this popular section of the state. The cultural center of three attractive cities, Concord (the State Capital), Manchester (the largest city), and Nashua, a shopping and dining center for folks from two states, are close to all campgrounds in this Merrimack Valley region. Just a few miles down the road from each city 12 are farms, lakes, streams and scenic backroads leading to quiet places in which to KEENE camp. There are opportunities for fishing, boating and101 9 swimming on warm summer afternoons. The pleasure is doubled when you can get back to your site, change 63 for an10evening 32 of fun, then go to a theater, a dinner on the town or dancing at a popu12 lar night club. 119 The winding path of the Merrimack River passes through each of these cites and parks are springing up along the riverbanks. In Manchester each summer a river festival is a highlight. Just outside the cities the suburbs fade into rural areas still pastoral in nature. There are historic landmarks such as the Franklin Pierce Manse, the New Hampshire Historical Society Museum in Concord, the Arts and Sciences Center in Nashua and the Currier Gallery of Art in Manchester. This is an area of New Hampshire that once gave an audience to the oratory of Daniel Webster and the countryside that was an inspiration for the poetry of Robert Frost. The Frost Farm in Derry, on Route 28, is now a state park. The Hannah Dustin Memorial in Boscawen, north of Concord, commemorates the courage of a woman taken prisoner in an Indian raid. It is located where the Contoocook and Merrimack Rivers join. Visitors are also welcome at the Anheuser Busch Brewery in Merrimack where one of the attractions is the stable of the famous Clydesdale Horses. In Concord there is the Coach and Eagle Trail that takes a person on foot to 17 historic sites. These include the State House and the New Hampshire State Library. Race fans will also find the South Central Region particularly interesting in July and September as NASCAR comes to New Hampshire Motor Speedway in Loudon, just outside Concord on Rt. 106. Campers

Editor’s Note: The following list of lakes, ponds and streams—as well as those listed in the other regions—will hopefully be a handy addition to a fisherman’s places-to-go file. While fishing old or new haunts the Fish & Game Department would like to remind sportsmen to respect property, both public and private. Everyone participating in a sport is judged by an individual’s actions.

LANCASTER

he mountains are just a mere part of the attraction in this popular region of the state, which is the destination each year for thousands of visitors from out of state. It is a beautiful region of lakes, streams, woodlands, and scenic vistas. There are fun places for the entire family. Campers coming to the mountains should not miss the opportunity to travel to the top of the highest peak in the Northeast—Mount Washington. You can take your own vehicle to the top via the auto road or travel to the peak in the historic Cog Railway. Special vans will take those who do not wish to take their own vehicles. At the top you will find a visitor’s center as well as the place where the strongest winds ever, were recorded. The Kancamagus Highway (Route 112) travels all the way from Bath through Kinsman Notch to Woodstock and Lincoln and then continues over mountain vistas to Conway. This road has been designated a scenic byway. There are many other scenic rides as well – and not just in your car. There are boat rides, gondola rides to the top of some of the peaks, chair lifts, tramways, trolley rides, sightseeing buses, canoe trips, plane rides, helicopter flights and train rides. There are theme parks that take you back in history or to fantasy places where children can enjoy rides themed with their favorite nursery rhymes, a western town or Santa’s summer home. There are also water parks with slides galore and wave pools. The shop-a-holic will find the area abounding with factory outlets, malls, specialty shops, and places with hundreds of gifts, all combining to make the region a shopper‘s delight. A camper can look up from his or her site to a mountain vista or look down from a peak to the picturesque valley below. One can stop at an overlook on a hillside and enjoy some relaxing moments viewing nature above and below you. The panoramic views in autumn are truly spectacular with magnificent fall foliage. There are a greater variety of campgrounds in the White

Mountains than perhaps anywhere else in New England. To the north are places where wilderness is a reality. Moose strolling through a campground or across a highway are a camera bug’s delight. A person can camp where there are a lot of friendly folks enjoying fun and games or in small quiet campgrounds where they are alone with nature there are also dozens of places in between offering a little or a lot of both.

THE LAW Based on a need to send safe, well-informed hunters & trappers into the field and to improve the behavior and reputation of hunters & trappers, New Hampshire Law requires all first-time hunters, bowhunters & trappers to be graduates of a hunter/bowhunter/trapper education course. The law applies to everyone regardless of age, military service or hunting/bowhunting/trapping experience. This law, however, has a “grandfather clause” allowing experienced hunters, bowhunters & trappers to produce an old hunting, archery or trapping license, which can be from New Hampshire or any other state or province from any year in lieu of a course. Students must have attained the age of twelve to attend the hunter education course. IMPORTANT Legislation enacted in 1981 prohibits the taking of any furbearing animals with a nonresident small game license. Furbearer, deer and bear seasons are established after public hearings and may change. Check N.H. Fish and Game Department’s Hunting Digest for new regulations.

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.

MOOSE FACTS • The average moose weighs 1,000 lbs. — that’s 4 times the size of a big trophy white -tailed deer.

• Moose are 6 feet tall at the shoulder — your headlights are apt to shine right through their legs, which are the same color as the pavement, and their dark bodies camouflage them at night.

• Moose eyes do reflect light, but they are higher than the beam of your headlights and you may not see them.

• The hood of your vehicle fits neatly under the belly of the moose — when you lift him off his feet the full weight is thrown against the windshield of your car.

• Moose are extremely unpredictable — don’t assume the moose has seen you and will wait until you pass to cross the road.

• When threatened, a moose may stand his ground, run in the opposite direction of the danger (your car), or run to the right or left. • Moose are more active at dusk and at night.

• Moose are a safety concern primarily from May to October. There are peak periods of activity in May and June. This is the time of year when the yearlings leave their mothers and moose move from winter to summer habitat. They are attracted to moist roadside areas which hold salt from winter run-off. Another peak period occurs in Sept. and Oct., during the rut (mating season).

71

• Always be aware of the danger — moose cross the road randomly, not just at moose crossing signs. The signs simply denote areas of higher frequency.

• Drive well within the reach of your high beams. This may mean less than the posted speed limit. • Watch the sides of the road.

Safe Boater Education Certificate

In response to large increases in the number of boats on NH public waters and rising concerns over the safety of these waters, the NH Legislature has passed and the governor has signed into law a Boating Safety Education Program.

What is the intent of the Law? The law aims to reduce accidents and increase the pleasure of the lake experience for all lake users.

What does the Law do? The law requires that boaters of the public waters of New Hampshire, while operating a motorized vessel having power in excess of 25 horsepower, carry a safe boater education certificate. The certificate can be obtained by successfully completing a National Association of State boating Law Administrators‘ approved eight-hour course provided by the state, and passing an examination with a minimum grade of 70%, or by waiving the course and passing a safe boater equivalency examination with a minimum grade of 80%. Certificates will be valid for the lifetime of the holder. Temporary certificates, valid for a period of 14 days, will be available from dealers and renters of boats who themselves have (1) passed the boating safety education course and (2) been approved by the Commissioner of the Department of Safety to administer the examination leading to a temporary certificate.

When must boat operators be in compliance? The safe boating education law will be phased in over a period of seven years. As of the date indicated below, boaters of the age indicated are required to carry the certificate. (Any boater may obtain a safe boater certificate prior to their respective compliance date.) Age Date 19 years old & younger 1/1/02 26 years old & younger 1/1/03 31 years old & younger 1/1/04 38 years old & younger 1/1/05 43 years old & younger 1/1/06 50 years old & younger 1/1/07 All Boaters 1/1/08 Who does not need a certificate? New Hampshire will recognize any boater safety education certificate that meets or exceeds the standards of the state. This may include Coast Guard Auxiliary, Power Squadron, or any other state‘s safety certificate that meets this standard. Therefore, boaters in possession of these certificates are not required to obtain a New Hampshire safe boater’s certificate. In addition, any boat operator licensed by the state or the US Coast Guard to operate a commercial vessel is exempt form this law. For information on a boater safety course near you, contact the NH Marine Patrol at (603) 293-2037. Provided by the State of New Hampshire Marine Patrol Bureau

SOMETHING’S BRUIN IN NEW HAMPSHIRE: Learn to Live with Bears…

New Hampshire’s bear population is growing. This magnificent animal can be found in every county in the state. With this expansion, there is a greater likelihood that campers will see a bear. Sometimes, the meeting between the two is not pleasant. 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. Carefully clean your tables and around them. Deposit any waste food in the trash can.

2. Clean Up After Every Meal or Snack. Foods should be stored in closed containers and kept in the trunk of your car or inside a truck-mounted camper. Do not leave food (even in containers) outside or in tents. 3. Do Not Dump Scraps of Meat, Food or Fat Drippings Into Your Fire. Place these in a closed container (screw-type bottle, etc.) and place in the trash can.

4. Learn the Schedule of Trash Pick-Up In Your Area. Have all trash accumulated prior to trash pickup. Trash that must be kept overnight should be packaged in such a way (closed plastic bags, etc.) to reduce odor and placed in the can with the lid securely in place. 5. Do Not Cook Food Or Eat Inside Your Tent. Food odors will remain and attract bears.

6. Hang Food At Least 10 Feet Above the Ground on a Limb That Cannot Support a Bear’s Weight if you do not have an enclosed vehicle or are driving a convertible. Your actions can influence a bear’s habits. When you take the time to remove food from your tent and table, you are helping the bear maintain its normal foraging habits. Failure to do so invites the bear to develop bad habits and creates bear/people/problems for campground visitors. If you see a bear, you should respect it but not necessarily fear it. Unprovoked attacks by black bear on humans are so rare as to be almost non-existent. However, do not attempt to feed, tease or approach bear that you do see. View any bear 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 PAID ADVERTISEMENT NH FISH & GAME

FAMILY CAMPING

VISITOR FEES

One of the most perplexing problems in the camping industry today is visitors. Most campers fail to understand why a campground owner requires their visitors to pay a fee for entering and using the facilities. It is not that the campground owner doesn’t want visitors, it is simply that the facilities can only handle so many people. Excess people cause strains on restrooms, pools, and other facilities. They cause extra utility expenses which have to be paid. Who’s to pay for all this? You the camper? No, the user, the visitor. Please advise all visitors prior to arrival that they will be charged a fee for use of the facilities. Thank you

1. Allowing pets to roam freely around the campground. 2. Allowing 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. Leaving pets unattended on your site, which causes them to bark and whine disturbing fellow campers. 4. Not picking up after your pet. 5. Bringing pets to beach and pool area.

2. Let your folks start grills and campfires, they have longer arms and have less chance of getting burned.

5. If you get lost in the woods, try to be brave! Stop and hug a tree. Make a lot of noise too. If you have a whistle, blow it! People looking for you will hear you better and find you faster if you STAY IN ONE PLACE. 6. Fireworks and sparklers are exciting but you should only use them with a grownup. Never wave sparklers around, those skinny little sticks can slip out of your hand and right into your eye or your friend’s.

1. Toasting marshmallows is awesome and fun to make for you and your moms and dads, but be careful cause they are very hot inside.

4. Always have a grownup with you when you’re near the water, sometimes it’s deeper and water is moving faster than it looks.

CAMPING SAFETY TIPS CAMPING

7. Making new friends can be the best part about camping but remember to ALWAYS... ALWAYS let your folks know where you are. Making them worry is NOT COOL! 8. Playgrounds are great and you and your friends can use your imaginations. But remember... YOU ARE THE COOLEST if you treat things with respect and follow the safety rules. 9. Animals like our little friend below are cute and fun to watch. But be careful you don’t get too close. They get scared, and a scared animal could be DANGEROUS.

SUNAPEE

hare with the folks who live in the Monadnock Region of New Hampshire the relaxing pattern of living in this picturesque southwestern corner of the state. Campers return year after year to break away from the hectic pattern of the daily work world. It’s a place to enjoy nature, to explore back roads, to shop for antiques, to enjoy summer concerts or theater performances, to fish, swim and go boating on the many clear lakes. Most of all though, the attraction is the mountain. Mount Monadnock, because of its location and the way it towers above the farms, lakes and woodlands, dominates the region. Folks who visit the area cannot resist its charm and appeal. It comes into view as you drive the many bends in the country roads. It stands majestically opposite a clear lake. It forms a backdrop for meadows and farms and provides a spectacular view from all over the region. In addition the mountain is a climber’s delight. The trails are for family climbing, not designed to test the strength of experts. It is perhaps the most climbed mountain in the northeast. In the center of the Monadnock region one will find the City of Keene. With its wide streets and attractive downtown area Keene is the place that shoppers go when they visit the region. There are malls, fine restaurants, movie houses, the Thorne Art Gallery and Keene State College. The little towns across the region each have a charm typical of New England in bygone days. The town of Dublin is where Yankee magazine is published. Peterborough has often been referred to as the “Our Town” of Wilder fame.

Fitzwilliam is alive with blossoms. The birthplace of this country’s fourteenth president, Franklin Pierce, is located in the Town of Hillsborough. Chesterfield Gorge, located in Spofford, features a deep and spectacular ravine and is one of many places around the region in which to enjoy a picnic lunch. The gardens and farms of the area provide campers with fresh-picked corn for roasting, melons for dessert, and strawberries for shortcake. In the autumn the country roads offer a panorama of color equal to any section of New England. 112

ANY DAY.

Mom and Dad take us to New Hampshire every year on a camping trip. We’ve set up our tent deep in the woods, in the mountains and this time we’re camping on the edge of a lake! Yesterday we rented a canoe and paddled way out to the other side to look for turtles and moose. Last night, my sister and I roasted marshmallows and had a contest to see who could spot the most shooting stars. TV...who needs it?

New Hampshire has 72 beautiful state parks, many of which feature pristine campgrounds. Bring your family and visit them all!
