Welcome to The Wolf Swamp!

14 sites · RVs, Tents52 acres · Canterbury, NH
The property used to be part of the old Johanson farm, it was a 200 acre dairy farm a hundred years ago. when the State put in the highway (I-93) in 1961 it split the farmland in half. 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. There are several great hiking trails on the property, also used by local mountain bikers and Horseback Riding. Occasionally there will be an ATV or Dirt Bike passing through. We are located in the Heart of the local Trail system. There are several great places to swim and Kayak or Canoe literally around the corner. There are also lots of great local attractions close by, many that have Farm Stores, Shops, Homemade Gifts, Breads, Pies, Cheeses and we even have a few local Breweries. There is something for everyone, just ask and we will point you in the Right Direction.

Lakeside camping in New Hampshire guide

Overview

New Hampshire is the perfect place to find a lakeshore campsite. Set between neighboring Maine, Vermont, and Massachusetts, this small state has a landscape that was carved by glaciers long ago, leaving basins now filled by endless lakes, ponds, rivers, and streams. Today, you can easily access these waters from major New England cities like Boston, Manchester, Portsmouth, Concord, and Portland. New Hampshire even has an official Lakes Region, where you can bike the shores of Lake Winnipesaukee, paddle a kayak on Squam Lake, or explore the hiking trails near Lake Sunapee, Lake Wentworth, and Ossipee Lake. All over the state you’ll be able to find a wide variety of lakeside camping—try a tipi tent high in the trees, a campsite with swimming, or a sandy shore site with your RV or tent. Camping a little too rustic? Rent a cabin with lake access, a lakefront cottage, or relax with pond-front glamping. New Hampshire also hosts many waterfront state parks including Bear Brook, White Lake, Ellacoya, Greenfield, Pawtuckaway, and Umbagog—all offering lake recreation. Find the perfect camping spot or vacation rental near water on your quest for lake camping in New Hampshire.
