Bear Mountain Horse Camp (off grid)

5 sites 路 RVs, Tents448 acres 路 VT
EXPLORING AN OFF-THE-GRID HORSE CAMP BEAR MOUNTAIN HORSE RESORT Located in a remote section of Maidstone Vermont near Maidstone State Park is a new totally off-the-grid horse camping experience called Bear Mountain off grid Horse Resort! It鈥檚 not often when a new horse camp lopes into existence. And, even more rare, is to find one totally off the grid鈥攏ot hooked up to conventional sources of electricity and water. But this off-the-beaten-path camp offers some of the best views of the woods you can enjoy from the back of a horse. Some of our riding friends had spoken enthusiastically about Bear Mountain Horse Resort. After hearing about their adventures, we wanted to see what it was like in person and hear the story behind it. So, we loaded up our horses, Ben and Frank, and headed to Maidstone Vermont. For being in such an isolated location, it is a little difficult getting in off of Route 102. No one wants to beat up their living-quarters trailer on a rutted, dirt road. And we had no problems with our living quarters. However, if you have a longer trailer, you may want to drive in first without your trailer and check out the Bear Hill Road for large rocks that could bottom out your vehicles and see all of potential washouts, turns and dips in the road. Maidstone is located near Groveton, New Hampshire off of Route 102, travel on Route 3 as well from Lancaster, New Hampshire. Located 20 miles north of Santa's Village. Don鈥檛 be worried about how far away it is from stores because they all are 15 or so minutes away: the best is yet to come. Turn left on Bear Hill Road if you are traveling from south to north, look for the Bear Hill Mountain Resort sign on the left about two miles after leaving the pavement!
