Nestled on a small piece of private land in Dorchester, New Hampshire, just minutes from the western areas of the White Mountain National Forest. The River Plateau provides a unique tenting experience. Campers will stay in our cleared meadow that offers full views of the night sky. There is direct access to a private swimming area located on the property. 

While small in size, the property is located next to 1000 acres of wild state forest. There are very few marked trails, which makes it perfect for those looking to get out into some pristine woodlands. Also nearby in town is a very extensive mountain bike trail network. Campers will be in close proximity (within 40 mins) to some major New Hampshire attractions.

Our sites are located close to the parking area and generally offer a cleared grass/moss mix to stay on. There is a central shared fire pit for both sites. 

* Well behaved pets are okay! There are dogs who live on the property and next door. You will be required to keep them on leash while at camp. The lower forest area is ok for off-leash.*

Loved River Plateau! This place is owned and ran by Eric’s dad. He is so friendly and very passionate about the area and land he owns. It is a great and beautiful area that butts up to a state park. I think the listing said there was wifi but we couldn’t access any - which is okay - we were just hoping to plan for a hike the next day and look up directions etc. Would recommend this place! We had our dog with us as well, their dogs were friendly and ran around with ours. Thanks for the great stay and hospitality!

There were weather complications surrounding our plans. Eric was patient throughout the entire process and extremely understanding! I couldn’t ask for a better host.
