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 :)

The best camping near Swans Falls Campground guide

Overview

About

Looking for some quaint family camping and canoeing close to the White Mountains? Hop over the border into Fryeburg Maine and check out the Swan Falls Campground. It’s a great place to camp, hike, or float by the mighty (but very gentle and calm) Saco River. Great family camping awaits at this park, and after just one night we know you will be wanting s’mores.

Notable campgrounds

  • Tent Sites: Secluded spots offering a classic camping experience amid the whispering pines.
  • River Access Sites: Prime locations for those looking to wake up to the gentle sounds of the Saco River.
  • Group Campsites: Ideal for larger gatherings, these sites allow for shared moments in the great outdoors.

Tips for snagging a campsite

  • Book early: Reservations open in advance, so plan ahead to secure your ideal spot.
  • Off-peak visits: Consider camping during the weekdays or outside of peak summer months for better availability.
  • Stay flexible: Have alternative dates in mind in case your first choice is unavailable.
  • Explore nearby camping options: If Swans Falls is full, the surrounding area offers additional camping opportunities.

When to go

The prime time to visit Swans Falls Campground is between May 1 and October 31, when the river access is open and nature is in full bloom.
