Camp at the base of the mountain in the comfort of your camping vehicle or tent and enjoy private access to our mountain/farm.

Camp with your group of up to 8 people at our private Farm/Recreation/Ski area. Established in 2004, we are a 75 Acre ATFS certified Tree Farm located in the Blue Hills Range in the Foothills to NH’s white mountains. Our Farm spans the northerly side of Hussey Mountain from the base to the summit. Guests are provided with private access to several miles of multi-use nature trails, multiple scenic lookouts on and around the mountain’s summit, a three acre PYO blueberry maze, a dock on our eight acre pond, and weekend access to our abutting organic farm for educational tours and fresh produce.

(Site 1 Base Camp) is located at the base of the mountain and is designed to accommodate camping vehicles and tents. The site is decorated with LED string lights and equipped with a large granite Firepit abutted by benches made from snowboards. A wood rack filled with seasoned/split/bundled hardwood also abuts the Firepit and acts as a wind block.

The site Is equipped with... 

Steel pedestal grill.

Long wood food prep table/bar.

Power strip and extension cords.

Custom wood coffee table.

Porcelain sink fed with potable water.

Outdoor solar shower.

Trash can and free trash removal.

*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... 

We offer the only private ski area in New England accessed by either uphill travel or snowmobile lift service. With snow, our unique network of forestry trails and glades are transformed into downhill ski/snowboard runs, snowshoe routes, and fatbike trails. (Site 1 Base Camp) becomes ski-in, ski-out and is our only available site during ski season. Booking Base Camp provides our guests with exclusive private access to the mountain and all of the ski/snowboard/snowshoe/fatbike terrain via groomed uphill routes; one of which begins right out of the campsite.

We are in a fully contained 36 foot motor home, but if we weren’t, we would have been all set. There are lots of great amenities here for tent campers—my husband did use the outdoor solar-powered shower and liked it. There is a prep table and an outdoor sink, firewood for sale, beautiful fire ring. Eben was great at communication ands very friendly. Highly recommend.

Eben has thought of absolutely everything you could possibly need, when it comes to camping comfortably. He provides a sweet spot with chill vibes and plenty of privacy, smack dab in the middle of an oak forest. Hands down the cleanest campsite we’ve ever encountered.

My partner and I loved our stay at Hussey Mountain! Eben is a fantastic host and helped us get all set up with a camper we had rented for the weekend. The property is amazing with great trails and views. The outdoor shower and sink allowed us to fill up our tanks less. It had everything we needed for the perfect weekend getaway (expect a dump site, which we knew ahead of time)! It feels very secluded but is nearby everything you might need. Highly recommend staying here. We hope to be back for skiing in the winter!

This was the first time that my significant other and I had used Hipcamp and we couldn't have been happier. From start to finish, Eben was great with being available for questions and direction as needed, but also gave us plenty of space. Blueberry picking, hiking, time on the water, and a visit to his brother's farm, there was so much to do on such a well-kept and thought-out piece of land. No hesitations with suggesting a stay here!

We had a wonderful time at the base camp with our almost two year old! It was her first camping trip, and it was perfect. Eben was an exceptional host and gave us all the information we needed. We had a blast hiking and exploring the mountain and just wished we had more time! The other two sites are beautiful, and we hope to come back in the future! Our site was perfect for ease with with little one and would be excellent with a big group. We got to stop at Mountain View Farm on the way out for some beautiful fresh cut veggies.

This will be our 3rd time here, with one more trip this season! AND it wont be our last! Eben is an excellent host, going the extra mile to make sure his guests enjoy their stay to the fullest. Very quiet and peaceful, it’s the perfect getaway without driving hours and hours ( depending on where you are coming from of course.)

We loved everything about our stay! Meticulous care of the campsite and facilities, incredible hospitality by our host Eben, delicious blueberry picking, gorgeous views and an unforgettable yoga session at sunset overlooking the valley. The entire grounds are dedicated to sustainability and appreciation of nature. Hands down the best Hipcamp experience we have had.
