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 White Lake State Park guide

Overview

About

Set on the shore of a small glacial lake in central New Hampshire, White Lake State Park offers some of the best swimming in the state. A large sandy beach area is surrounded by thick pine forest with views of the surrounding mountains and a two-mile footpath circles the entire lake. Trout fishing, canoeing, hiking, and birdwatching are other  activities in the park and the park’s campground is one of the largest in the area with over 203 campsites, many with views of the lake. When the snow falls, the park is also popular with snowshoers, cross-country skiers, and snowmobilers. 

Tips for snagging a campsite

  1. White Lake State Park can get very busy on summer weekends. Campsite reservations are strongly recommended and can be reserved up to eleven months in advance online or over the phone. 
  2. A handful of sites are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Arrive early in the day to find a spot or call ahead for availability. 
  3. Not all sites are large enough for RVs or trailers. Be sure to check campsite size before booking a site.  

When to go

The White Lake State Park Campground is open from Memorial Day weekend through the second Monday of October. The park gets very busy on weekends in summer so visit during the week if you can. Day use visitors also need to book a beach reservation since parking at White Lake Beach is limited. Beach reservations can be made up to 30 days in advance and a few first-come, first-served spots available.      

Know before you go

  1. Campsites include fire rings, picnic tables, and access to drinking water, coin-operated showers, and a dump station. No hookups are available. 
  2. The park has a camp store where you can buy ice, firewood, and other camping essentials. Canoe rentals are also available at the lake. 
  3. Pets are not permitted anywhere in White Lake State Park.
  4. The city of North Conway is 20 miles north and has grocery stores, restaurants, and many other visitor services.
