Sweet Song Acres is 100+ acres of secluded forest nestled along the Little Sugar River, at the base of Perry Mountain. Located in rural Unity, NH and Charlestown, NH, just across the Vermont state line. Southernmost point, located in Charlestown is one of two campsites. The other is Shady Grove, located in Unity. 

The two sites, located in bordering towns share the same entrance and are connected by a 1/4 mile trail. Both are very large sites. Campers would drive to both sites down a trail so we highly recommend a vehicle with decent clearance and 4WD or AWD. Southernmost Point is a fully drive-in site. Shady Grove campers park above the site and the campsite is down a short path, just a few hundred feet or so.

The property consists of varied terrain of rock ledges, lush moss, streams, and panoramic views at the summit. There are many options of local outdoor activities in the area or if you prefer, just sit and "listen to the river sing sweet songs to rock your soul".

Such a nice camping spot!!! Chiefly and Tina were great hosts and grounds keepers! The bathroom was clean and stocked with little toiletries! The open spaces had been nicely cleared! Plenty of space and the water was refreshing! Not very buggy. Lots of mushrooms and woodland creatures 🦎🐌

Great spot! We had a great time. Tina was very nice and let us fill our shower bags at her house before heading out to show us the camp spot. 2 options for the camp area, right off the road or “down by the river”. We chose down by the river and it was nice to be near the water and hear the river all day and night. 2 beautiful wildflower arrangments and a 5 gallon full water container were waiting for us. Only complaints were the traffic and visibility from the street and the wood we purchased (much of) burned very quickly, a harder wood would last longer.

Great secluded spot! So much space for more guest or to just spread out and explore. Site had great basics with wood delivered. Great private river spot to wake up to and spend the day in.

A lovely, private camping space placed perfectly between the river and Perry mountain. Details, such as flowers on the picnic table, 5gallons of fresh water, and a comfortable outhouse, made our stay comfortable and peaceful.

Beautiful and peaceful campsite right by the river. It’s huge and can accommodate at least 12 people. We spent a day & night in a hammock & in the water, roamed around the beautiful property and just relaxed. Doesn’t get much better than that!

Shady Grove is a great camping spot with plenty of room for tents and a camper and very peaceful. Also a picnic table near the parking spot for the camper as well as one near the stream. Pluses: outhouse was very clean, extra fire pit and picnic table, incredible little water fall swimming hole down the road, Tina was a great host, plenty of parking.
Things you should know: there is a public hard road on the other side of the stream which after a while we didn’t even notice, but if you are wanting complete silence, it’s something to consider.
Overall critique is five stars for us. This is an awesome spot and we definitely hope to return.

Great tent spot near the stream. Shot from the picnic table from the lower section of the camp spot. Breakfast cooking.

Our second trip here was just as lovely and calming as the first. Tina and Chiefy are wonderful hosts and the site is beautiful. It is both remote and convenient, and we can't wait to come back for our next anniversary!

Great campsite! This was our second time staying. We’ve stayed at both sites 1 and 2 and both sites are great. Very private. Each site has its own very clean outhouse. Can’t beat it!
