There are two chairs in the tipi, which if removed at night, make floor room for four other sleeping bags. 'Forest Bathing' for miles!

An established Western facing four point sacred Medicine Wheel site being established on Askari Ridge - our name for the slope starting with the two fire pits - 'Askari' being Swahili for night guard. Here is where we envision a great touch-point area for those leading groups to be for a base-camp by day or night, where eventually a multi-use tenting platform/performance stage will be constructed for outdoor entertainment, creating an authentic 'stadium style' seating on the hill. You will see on your way up to Salamander Hollow main clearing - the Kula Bata Tiny Kabin on the left of the dirt road- now available to rent with its small guest room for two, infrared sauna, hot shower, kitchenette, dishwasher and laundry.

Souhegan Shores

2 sites · RVs, Tents21 acres · Merrimack, NH
21Apr'24 Update: The road in to the sites is drying out and the soft spots are firming up. All the same, if we get a lot of rain this May, please don't drive to Merrimack and book the site 10 minutes before your expected arrival? (I think somebody must have booked it from my driveway) Best to check first with your host to ensure the access road is passable to your type of vehicle. (back to our regularly scheduled camp description...) Camp alongside the tree lined bank of the Souhegan River. Fall to sleep to the sound of river flowing over the rocks up stream. In season, enjoy the swimming hole 100 feet from your campsite. Site-1 is located under the trees adjacent to a 3 acre meadow and Christmas Tree farm. Camp above the bank of the Souhegan River in the shade of white pine and shag bark hickory and listen to the river tumble over the ledges upstream. In season, enjoy the swimming hole 100 feet from your campsite. On the other side of the fence is a pasture where two horses graze. If you don't like friendly dogs then you'll be better off on site 2 where we can better keep our dog Wilson from dropping in to visit. He loves people too much not to want to greet folks on Site 1. Site-2 is located at the downstream end of the property and is completely private. You'll see nothing from your site but trees and the river. If you or your dog don't like dogs, this is the site you want. It's far easier to keep Wilson away from this corner of the property. The other side of the river is town conservation land so the only people you're likely to see will be passing by in canoes or kayaks. In the dry season, this is a great place to start a float trip and you'll likely have the next 1.5 miles all to yourself since the rapids upstream become unpassable in late July and August. Now that TENTRR has gone bankrupt, Site 2 is available year round. If planning a winter trip, just check ahead to ensure your host has finished plowing the access road. If southern NH gets really clobbered with snow, check with your host about the possibility of constructing snow caves.

1 site · Lodging14 acres · Mason, NH
Welcome to Sweet Retreat and Yurt Farm! Come experience a romantic, private four season yurt experience in a secluded piece of nature on our 14 acre property, enveloped by a variety of tall trees and distant view of the farms pasture and barn. Whether you are looking for a romantic getaway for two, a family or group experience, the yurt provides 492 sq. ft. of comfortable space with top quality amenities, including Wi-Fi, and is available for all seasons: rain, snow or sunshine. There is a viewable pond and two running brooks on the property. We have Nigerian Dwarf goats, numerous chicken breeds and ducks. When we are available, you may interact with the farm animals if desired. The small town of Mason has a number of homesteads/farms nearby, a fine dining restaurant, a Maple House and restaurant, a venue for live concerts of talented singers/bands, and a swimmable quarry. PLEASE READ THE DESCRIPTION IN FULL BEFORE BOOKING WITH US. BOOKING THE PROPERTY ARE ACCEPTANCE OF THESE TERMS AND RULES. Be mindful that we have multiple animals on our little farm including a barn cat, dog, goats, chickens, and ducks. As such, you may hear animal noises. However, the barn is approximately 400 feet away from the yurt where most of the animals stay. We have made extensive efforts to make your stay as comfortable as possible. However, the Yurt is a “Glamping” (Glorified Camping) experience. As such, here are some following considerations before you decide to book our yurt: 1. The walkway from the parking area to the yurt is approximately 150 yards long over a grassy path that can be wet, uneven and in the winter covered with snow or ice. Wear appropriate footwear. 2. The yurt is heated by a wood stove. You will need to build a fire and maintain it in the wood stove to keep warm in the winter months. We provide the tools, the wood and the training for those who need it. If you are away from the yurt all day, you will need to restart the fire to get the yurt back to a comfortable temperature. 3. Yurt guests exclusively have access to the outhouse lavatory for all bathroom needs. We utilize a composting bag/toilet in the outhouse, and guests must follow the posted instructions related to its use. 4. The outhouse is NOT insulated. It can be cold in the winter. 5. The outdoor shower is available for guest use during the warm months (approximately May through October, or when outdoor temperatures are consistently above freezing). We DO NOT have running water to the shower area. Solar shower bags are provided. 6. We DO NOT have hot running water in the yurt. There is up to an 18 gallon container over the sink for cleansing needs, washing dishes, etc…Refills may be required. Guests may boil water in the kettle for hot water needs. 7. Guests are welcome to use all items in the kitchenette. The kitchenette has all of your cooking needs. 8. The yurt is located on a farm. Although unlikely, guests may encounter associated sounds and smells related to raising animals during their stay with us. If you proceed to book a stay, you can expect to have a unique lodging experience that will detach you from the routine and reconnect you to nature and those you are experiencing it with. Careful consideration has been taken to design and furnish the space to provide you with a comfortable, memorable experience. From the artistic pieces, to the memory foam top bed, cast iron wood stove, and outdoor fire-pit; to name a few. Clean towels, linens, robes and slippers (robes and slippers are provided during the winter months and slippers are for you to keep) are provided, and there are extra blankets stored in the chest and stools for those extra cold nights. The composting outhouse is just a few steps away from the door. It has a skylight and a solar lamp during night time hours. The yurt area is private, but you may experience wildlife such as deer, fox, bunny or other sightings. You may see our goats in the fenced pasture from a healthy distance, but you may choose to approach them at the fence, if desired. You will get a sense of what homesteading life is like in rural New Hampshire. Cell carriers may be spotty. AT&T works best. Wi-Fi is provided with speeds up to 140 mbps. Currently there isn't a television provided. You may bring a laptop or other screened device to stream your favorite television shows. You must provide your own subscription account/login. DOGS: When you book, please confirm these rules and be sure your reservation includes your pup. > One dog maximum > Your dog is at least one year old and FULLY potty trained > He or she gets along with other dogs - we have a dog and cat here > Dog stays off all furniture - this is important to us and to our future guests; please note that we charge a minimum additional $250 cleaning fee if this rule is broken > Please bring bags and pick up waste > Dog stays with you when you go out and is not left alone in the space COLD SEASON VISITORS: In your reservation request, please acknowledge you have read and understood the three important points below. The yurt is a wonderful and cozy place to be in the cold season. That said, there are some unique aspects to staying in the yurt during winter that you should review and feel good about: 1. Making fire in a wood stove is an enjoyable feeling, AND, you must do it well in order to stay warm. If you have never worked with a wood stove before, plan on reading the detailed instructions we have left you. We would also highly recommend you come before dark rather than late at night. 2. There is a lovely outdoor shower space outside the yurt, next to the outhouse. It is useable anytime during the year; however, during the cold months it will likely be intolerable. We DO NOT have running water to the shower space area. During the warmer months of the year, solar water shower bags are provided. Soap and Towels are provided. 3. The yurt is about 400 feet (a 2 minute flat walk) from your parking spot. That said, it's an easy walk. WHAT TO BRING: We provide all bedding, linens, pillows, towels, robes and slippers (robes and slippers are provided during winter months only and slippers are for you to keep). We provide all of the basic bbq/cooking supplies. There is a coffee/Nespresso machine provided, including coffee and coffee pods, snacks and fresh farm eggs when in season. We encourage you to bring appropriate clothing and foot wear for the season you visit, including jackets, shoes, beach towels if you will be swimming in the summer, slippers and cozy layers for the cold months, and foods and drinks (coffee is provided). If you are interested in streaming your favorite shows, we recommend you bring your screened devices (i.e. laptop). SUMMER VISITORS: We can provide suggestions in our area for great hikes, swimming holes, paddling spots, and the best ice cream stands. There is a viewable pond on the property; however, there is No Swimming allowed in the pond. The yurt will have a window A/C installed to keep you cooler during the hot summer months.

The best camping near Pearl Hill State Park guide

Overview

About

If you are looking for a truly secluded haven of nature, Pearl Hill State Park is a must. The camp spots here are known to be some of the largest and most private in all of the grand state of Massachusetts, all shaded under a canopy of sturdy pines. Enjoy a little shore side relaxation at the five-acre pond created by Park Hill Brook during the summer time and picturesque strolls or hearty hikes through orange and red hued trees in the fall. Explore the newest trail that connects Per Hill to Damon Pond from Willard Brook State Forest, giving you double the state park scenic beauty. That sounds like a pretty solid combo if you ask us.

Notable campgrounds

  • Pine Canopy Campsites: Immerse yourself in nature by camping beneath the towering pines.
  • Pearl Hill Brook Pondside: Enjoy the convenience of a swim with campsites located near the water.
  • Group Campgrounds: Perfect for larger gatherings, offering a communal outdoor experience.

Tips for snagging a campsite

  • Book early, especially for peak season, to ensure your spot amid the pines.
  • Weekdays may offer more availability than weekends, so consider a mid-week stay.
  • Keep an eye on cancellations for last-minute opportunities to reserve a campsite.
  • Explore nearby camping options if Pearl Hill State Park is fully booked.

When to go

The best time to visit Pearl Hill State Park is from late spring to early fall, when the weather is warm and all facilities are open. Summer offers the full experience with swimming and group activities. Winters can be harsh, with limited access and activities mainly geared towards snow sports.

Know before you go

  • Check the weather forecast and park alerts for any closures or safety advisories before your trip.
  • Parking is available, but it's wise to arrive early during busy weekends and holidays.
  • Accessibility is a priority, with beach wheelchairs available for those who need them.
  • Remember, no alcohol is permitted, and all dogs must remain on-leash throughout the park.
  • For a smooth visit, familiarize yourself with the park's rules, including the no-littering policy.
