Sacred Nectar Sanctuary

11 sites · RVs, Tents280 acres · North Sandwich, NH
Sacred Nectar rests on the land of the Wabanaki Tribes. This land, now known by it's view gifting fields, is one of Sandwich's most treasured gems. The Historic Farm was purchased by Townsend Thorndike from the first colonizing family to claim ownership of this unceded land, the McCrillis family. It was Town's place to get away from the busy life. As time went on and his money dwindled and plans to sell off some of the land arose. Townsend's son, Nick, foresaw a devastating development of conventional homes that would diminish the soul of this sacred land that held so much magic. So, Nick decided to move back to the homestead to create an example of what a healthy life for the land and its inhabitants looks like. HipCamp was the first step towards sharing and opening up the land to create an ecofriendly, Intentional lifestyle. One in which we hope to share our way of being that brings awareness to the natural world we have fallen so far from. Nick and his tribe of like minds are creating a holistic, educational, retreat, workshop, and event center where people can come to learn how to co-exist in a harmonious relationship with nature and each other. Thank you for being a part of the healing. We hope you enjoy what we have created here :)

At parking, guests are provided with a portable toilet, outdoor solar shower, garden hose for washing, a power strip for charging devices, and a spigot with potable water for filling containers. Over two decades ago we created our first campsite for the purpose of hosting family and friends. Folks enjoyed camping on the mountain so much they often would choose our farm over traditional campgrounds. Hosting campers became a regular weekend event, and to accommodate more people we created two more sites spread out across the property. In 2020, we came across the Hipcamp app and started offering private reservations to the public. Since, we have been hosting campers on a daily basis and continuously improving our sites / infrastructure / views. We’re excited to see what the next two decades hold; come join us on the mountain! Things to do on the mountain SPRING-FALL include... Hiking on several miles of maintained nature trails marked with clear signage for easy day/night navigation. Relaxing/taking in the scenery from several scenic lookouts located on and around the mountain’s summit; combined they provide a 360-degree view spanning from the NH/ME Seacoast to the White Mountains of NH, to the Green Mountains of VT. Fishing, paddling, swimming, or relaxing on our dock. Bird/wildlife watching, berry picking, stargazing and leaf peeping. This is a place you can easily spend a few days and keep busy! That said, if you’re looking to venture off-mountain and explore we’re in a great area to do that. We’re located only 7 minutes off Exit 14, NH Route 16 N. Places to visit nearby include... Baxter lake (public access) 5 minutes south. Portsmouth 25 minutes south. Lake Winnipesaukee 20 minutes north. Gunstock mountain resort 25 minutes north. NH’s White Mountains 40 minutes north. Conway 1 hour north. Things to do on the mountain in WINTER include... With snow, our unique network of forestry trails and glades are transformed into downhill ski/snowboard runs, snowshoe routes, and snowmobile trails. Site 1 Base Camp becomes ski-in, ski-out and is our only available site during ski season.

So now there are a hundred acres on each side of the Highway. The old stagecoach road which runs through the property from Canterbury Station to Northfield Station is now part of the main trails system. The early Pony Express riders dubbed the swamp on the land "Wolf Swamp", because there were many reports of riders seeing Wolves in the Swamp. The property is very open, although the sites are very spread out and secluded for ultimate privacy.

Camping near Ashland guide

Overview

The town of Ashland may be small, but its offerings are vast. Mountaineers and hikers can take advantage of Ashland’s proximity to the White Mountain National Forest, though the town offers more than mountains. The Pemigewasset River runs west of Ashland, while New Hampshire’s Lakes Region neighbors the town. After checking into your campsite with a view, you’ll be tempted to explore all of New Hampshire’s best scenery—but start with the town itself. A walk over the Squam River covered bridge feels quintessentially New England, especially with a farmers’ market apple cider in hand. 

Where to go

Wellington State Park

Start your camping trip in freshwater. Wellington State Park overlooks Newfound Lake and can accommodate large groups of campers. Once you pitch your tent, play volleyball on the sand, barbecue some burgers, and watch for birds. If you’re in the mood to hike, try Big Sugarloaf Mountain, which offers further views of the lake. Hike for long enough, and a swim at your lakeside campsite will be all the more refreshing. 

The Southern White Mountains

New Hampshire is only white in the winter—but the state is known for its White Mountains year-round. The White Mountains occupy roughly a quarter of the state, so you’re nearly always near trails, nature centers, and rock climbing hotspots. The southern end of the range boasts plenty of campsites, so pitch your tent and start exploring. You’ll have your pick of peaks and campsites. 

The Lakes Region

For a lake-based camping adventure, head east of Ashland. Lake Winnipesaukee—the state’s largest lake—is within a short distance. Wildlife enthusiasts, however, will flock to Squam Lake. From the outset, the lake looks peaceful and quiet, but is an ideal location to spot loons, herons, and bald eagles. What better way to wake up in the morning than with the call of the wild? 

When to go

Visit Ashland between mid-spring and mid-fall, when the weather is on its best behavior. While New Hampshire stuns year-round, winter tends to get—and stay—dark and cold. You can certainly cozy up in a cabin with a fire pit or visit the ice castles near Lincoln. However, if you want your days long and your nights warm, save your camping trip for better weather. You’ll want to stay outside for as long as possible.
