Tent and RV vacations at fun at many New Hampshire campgrounds

Campgrounds with very reasonable rates for family vacations operate at state parks and state forests in all regions of New Hampshire (there is even one along New Hampshire’s small portion of Atlantic beach front, at Hampton Beach State Park). In addition, NH has several private campgrounds with nearby lakes, water sports, and fishing. Campgrounds offer a wide variety of amenities in terms of bathrooms, showers, dumping and hookups. Also, accessibility to nearby fishing, hunting and other outdoor sports varies widely. Be sure to contact individual campgrounds for detailed information on accommodations and nearby attractions.
