Willoughby Farm Animal Rescue

9 sites · Lodging, RVs, Tents107 acres · Fairlee, VT
We are a 107-acre forest and farm animal rescue. Sleep with the sheep, alpacas, donkeys, potbellied pigs, and rabbits when you pitch your tent or park your camper on our Vermont Farm! Reserve the group site and sleep in the middle of the action! (You do not need a "group" to reserve the group site -- it is just our biggest site and can accommodate groups!). Co-located in the open, grassy area with the free-roaming farm rescues is our RV site. Co-located sites share a community fire ring, so it's a great way to meet and make new friends! Don't have a tent or RV? Spend a magical night in "The Greenhouse" (it's a real, working greenhouse that doubles as accommodations for those looking for a more "glamping" experience). Want a little privacy? Reserve one of our two tricked-out Tent Deck sites (Buddha North and Grandmother Pine), each with its own picnic table, private fire ring, and commercial-grade park grill. Nestled discretely in the forest adjacent to the area where the animals are, you will feel like you are in the middle of nowhere even though you are less than a 5-minute walk from your car! Looking for something a bit more remote and spectacular? Hike a half-mile to the Big Sky Tent Deck. An incredible vista awaits you for a little effort! Need gear? We have it for rent, from cast iron grill baskets and griddles to make cooking over a charcoal grill or fire a breeze to tents to 1- and 2- burner propane stoves to tarps to water containers. We even have an Anker Portable Power Station and Portable Kerosene Heater for rent! Need Supplies? Charcoal? Propane? We've got it. ----- We are a small non-profit (501c3). When you stay with us, rent equipment from us, or take a tour with us, 100% of the money you pay goes directly for the care and feeding of the rescue animals. Thanks for supporting us in making a difference in the lives of neglected, abused, and abandoned farm animals! ----- CAMP FOR FREE WEEKEND SEPT 20-21 2024 Come for the weekend and make a difference in the lives of Rescues. Spend the weekend helping us prep for Winter, maintaining and building fencing, planting daffodils, clearing brush, pitchforking manure (important and necessary work), hoof trimming, painting, and everything in between. Watch the sunset from the Big Sky Tent Deck on the Equinox. Sit around campfires with new friends. Eat great food -- we'll make you dinner each evening! Just (1) message us that you are interested and (2) sign up on the event page on our Facebook profile. ----- CHECK-IN TIME: 3:00 p.m.—7:00 p.m. Please arrive within this time window. If absolutely necessary, you may purchase a check-in extension for $15 in advance or $30 on arrival.

Franconia Forest - 5 Private Acres

1 site · Tent5 acres · Bethlehem, NH
Live like a local less than 12 minutes from Franconia Notch. Our site is just up the road from some of the most famous hikes, overlooks, swimming holes, formations, and ski resorts in New England—and 25 minutes from the Kancamagus Highway, connecting the eastern and western White Mountains and counted among the most scenic drives in America. You will never run out of things to do in any season or weather. This site is less than 15 minutes from Cannon Mountain, Echo Lake Beach, Profile Lake, Mt. Lafayette, and less than 25 minutes from Flume Gorge, Clark's Trading Post, the seasonal Ice Castles, downtown Lincoln, the Hobo Railroad, North Woodstock, Loon Mountain, Bretton Woods, Mt. Washington, the Cog Railway, and so much more. Our 5-acre forest features just a single private campsite, with a huge tenting platform, granite fire pit, and a rocky creek passing right by the site. From the two-car parking area, a 200-ft. trail winds through the woods, over a wooden stream crossing, and ends at the site itself set far back from the road. Modern conveniences are also close by. It's 5 minutes to the nearest grocery / convenience store, 5 minutes to Rek-Lis Brewing, 4 minutes to Super Secret Ice Cream (James Beard Award nominee), 13 minutes to Polly's Pancake Parlor (our favorite) and countless other restaurants. 17 minutes to the nearest medical facility. Other Notes and Important Things: - Please pack out all trash. Cleaners are in high demand in this region and we will have to charge a steep retroactive cleaning fee if any trash is left at the site. - Likewise please let us know ASAP if trash is present when you arrive. - The tenting platform is 12 ft. wide on its narrowest edge. It's flat and dry, but there are no anchor points for stakes or lines. Freestanding tents are best, or you may want to pack extra-long guy lines. - Don't forget the bug spray, especially in Summer! That goes for all campsites in the White Mountains, especially creekside ones like ours. - A portable toilet with privacy tent is available at the back of the site. Please use the provided trash bags as liners and pack them out if used. Odor-absorbing pine shavings are provided. - Please observe quiet hours between 9PM and 9AM everyday. - Cell coverage is surprisingly strong here. You should have direct 4G LTE access on Verizon and AT&T, and 4G extended coverage on T-Mobile / Sprint. - You may want to pack a wood splitting axe. Feel free to burn any dead, fallen, or cut wood on the premises, but all firewood must be less than 5 inches in diameter.

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.

Lost Cloud Farm

1 site · Tent115 acres · Newport, NH
We offer over one hundred acres of open rolling meadows and hayfields, lined with old stonewalls lining the outline of a time when fields were cleared by hand and horse. Along your travels exploring you will find deer paths, and wild turkeys throughout the pine covered floor of the forest. Fireflies are out every night with the most beautiful stars displayed that you could ever imagine. As a young girl these were our stomping grounds galloping through the fields on our horses, and venturing into the forest. Catching frogs by the pond and late at night.... maybe with a favorite boy gazing at the stars and smiling at one another gently in the moonlight. It's a place as young adults we could have campfires a blazing and many friends pitching a tent to stay the night! It's a special place that encompasses all that one would want. We welcome you to experience the magic and adventure here with us. We have several locations that have campfire set ups waiting with your first firewood waiting! Pitch a tent, or ask us to do so for you! Come visit the farm animals, pick a fresh apple off of one of the trees. Pick your own wildflowers to take home with you. Coming as a family, tractor ride, come pick your own eggs.. bring your friendly dog to frolic through the fields, or to cool off in the pond.

Mountain Home Tent Sites

3 sites · Tents200 acres · Tunbridge, VT
Mountain home tent sites sits on a nearly 200 acre historic hill farm in Tunbridge, VT. The land was cleared for farming in the 1790's and since that time has had only four land owners. The family that cleared the land is buried in a plot on the farm. Over the years the farm has undergone many changes, but dairy farming has been a consistent activity. Still actively farmed as Fledgling Farmstead, our farm is home to cows, sheep, chickens, goats, fruit trees, and a veggie and herb CSA and farm store. We also host workshops and on-farm events including the annual music, arts and food festival called Fledge Fest held at the camp site location. Fledge Fest this year will be on August 9th and 10th, 2024. Find more information on our website! The forest is actively managed for firewood and saw logs. The land is incredibly diverse from a high exposed hill top to a deep a forested mountain brook and everything in between. Come pitch your tent on a remote hill top surrounded by amazing views and nearly two hundred acres of diverse forests and pasture lands. These tents sites are located on an historic hill farm settled in 1790. Outhouses on site! There are trails for hiking and mountain biking (no dirt bikes or ATV's) all over the farm and a beautiful brook in a sheltered mountain valley. Just a 5 minute drive to the bottom of the hill is the first branch of White River; a beautiful clean river for swimming and fishing crossed by multiple covered bridges that lead to the farm. We hope you will come visit the farm and enjoy the remote mountainous beauty of Tunbridge!

Camping near Ashland with horseback riding 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.
