Hello happy campers :) Please read to the end before booking!
Bordered by National Forest and a land preserve, Sacred Nectar Sanctuary is cradled by the mighty 4,020 ft. peak of Whiteface Mountain. It is a perfect long day hike for enjoying lunch on top of the world. Some of the camp sites are perched up the steep dirt road and others lie out in the fields with panoramic views of the surrounding mountains.
The area is a great flat place to bring your bikes and enjoy the view of fields and green tunnel back roads. There are multiple trailheads just down the road with hikes for all abilities. We are 20 minutes from Lake Winnipesaukee, Squam, and the very peaceful boat free lake of Chocorua. Check out the Sandwich Creamery Icecream shack down the old dirt road to get your sweet tooth fix. Well behaved dogs are welcome to run as free as can be. The neighbors friendly dogs might show up at your site and hang out with you as well. Do not feed any animals any food! Bears, moose, porcupines, turkeys, and many other creatures call this home, so keeping your food in the car at night is a good idea. Dragonfly Yoga Barn is right down the road and offers absolutely amazing yoga classes in their old post and beam barn. We have WiFi at the house/check in if you need to use it. On 113A Just before you turn onto Whiteface Intervale rd there is a delicious natural spring on the side of the road for you to fill up your water jugs. We also have water available at the house.
Our rustic campsites include loads of space for activities, a fire pit, table, stump seating, and wicked cool outhouses. Dry firewood is available at the house for 5$ a bundle. We ask that you please do NOT peel the bark off of the birch trees to start your fire as it kills the trees. All of the sites have room for a trailer/camper and open space is abundant. Tent spots can have gravel so bring good padding. Make sure before leaving that your fire is completely out. Please make sure to pick up any poopy that your pets may have left around the campsites.
Site #1, #2, and #3 are currently closed due to town regulations.
Site #4,#5, #6 and #7 are about a mile up the dirt hill and have breath taking views and lots of space to explore. AWD drive only.
We do not guarantee your site of choice but we do our best to place you at the site you book. Please choose your desired site when booking or Hip Camp will assign you to a random one.
Every site is built with love and intention and has its own magical feeling to it. Our number one priority is keeping this land pristine, respectful and our campers full of joy. This is not a place to heavily drink and party. Please leave the sites as clean, and maybe even cleaner then you left it. As a courtesy to Mother Earth and fellow campers, please do not burn any trash other than paper products. We have a garbage and recycling at the house you are welcome to use. Enjoying yourself and staying up late around the campfire is encouraged, but please keep noise to a minimum.
Our goal with Hipcamp is to provide a place for everyone to gain a better relationship and appreciation with nature in a world that has forgotten the importance and connection we all have with the planet that sustains us. The Sanctuary land is holding space for the organic growth of sustainable community and will be an example of healthy living practices. Please help us to maintain a positive impact on the land and community.
Children under 5 are free!
If you wish to build forts out of fallen sticks, or make natural art, we encourage artistic and conscious creation. :)
Thank you so very much, we are excited to host you. Have a beautiful day! <3 SNS

This is undoubtedly the best campground I've ever been to and probably ever will. But don't stop reading now. Although that seemed pretty direct, it was an understatement.
We visited the campsite for about 2 weeks last august. We were a group of 3 climbers from Canada. The campsite is about 45 mins from Rumney, an amazing sport crag, but also close to many (many) other cliffs, such as Cathedral Ledge (where we had our first trad multi-pitch experience, simply amazing). The 45 mins morning and night car ride was well worth it, and I would certainly chose this campsite again, compared to the classic option of camping in the common campsite at Rumney.
Now, let's talk specifics.
The campsite (#4 in our case if I remember correctly, but we also saw a few other campsites so these comments should apply to those as well) was amazing. The view was incredible, even breathtaking (and I'm really not exaggerating). The campsites are also very distanced : this is probably the only camping where you are surprised how far other people are, instead of being disappointed at how close they are. Campsites 4 and 5 are the closest together, and yet we never saw the people on campsite 5, and barely heard a sound a number of times I can count on my hands. The campsites are big, or should i say huge, or should I say massive. We each had our own 1 person tents, but we could have fitted 20 (really). From my understanding of how big the property is, they could have fitted dozens of campsites, but they put 6. And that's a good thing : too many campsites (and too close) would have ruined it. Usually in life, good things come in quality, not quantity. No usual campground would have done this, but this is no usual campground
The services were simply on point. The ability to take a shower (every few days in our case) was great, especially since this is on Hipcamp (most places don't have this). The wood for the fire was also of good quality. Near every campsite there is an outhouse for when going to the house to pass, well, bodily residue, is too far (oh yeah, did I say it takes a few minutes by car to go from the house to campsite 5, just to show how distanced everything is). Might sound ridiculous talking about a toilet in the forest, but the outhouses were great : comfortable, well organized, pretty cool even. Legend is Nick made the outhouses himself...
The location, too, is great. I already talked about the multiple climbing areas nearby, but there are countless other outdoors activities to do in the area. The camping is secluded yet not too remote. On our last night at the campsite, we decided we wanted to, of all things, have ice cream. We went to Holderness, at the Squam Lakeside, about 30 mins away. To our surprise, there were fireworks on the lake that night, and our trip was fittingly ending with them, really an amazing moment. I can't promise there will be fireworks when you go though.
But above all else, the people were amazing. Nick is an incredible host : always helpful, in a good mood, all around fun! Michelle was amazing : probably the nicest and infectiously happy person I've ever met. Nick's mother helped us once when our car battery wasn't working, and Nick's dad was very nice. During our trip, Nick and Michelle had at various points some of their friends over and we were able to spend time around the fire with them, at our or other campsites. We even brought Nick and Michelle climbing at Rumney!
When we left for this trip, I thought I'd know what to expect. I thought we would have some good climbing and a nice fire at night. I thought we would see great landscapes and escape the swarming nature of city life. And I was right. This place simply has a magical feeling. At a normal campground, you pay the hosts. But this is no normal campground. Now, the hosts are our friends. That's the part you don't expect.
Yeah, we'll be back.
Our stay at Sacred Nectar Sanctuary was amazing. Our site's view of the mountains was incredible. At night we could see all of the glittering stars in the sky. The site was spacious, clean, and had a great compost toilet! Warm showers were a quick drive back to the main house. Michelle was a great Hipcamp host- very kind, welcoming, quick to reply to any questions, and with awesome recommendations of things to do nearby. We would recommend Sacred Nectar Sanctuary to anyone looking to stay at an awesome campsite. We are looking forward to returning in the near future!
This was truly an amazing camping site, with stunning views and complete privacy.
There are many different trail heads around and even a local swimming hole with only a couple minutes driving.
The host Michele was incredible helpful in so many ways.
We will definitely return!
Our site had a beautifully crafted outhouse, a large wood pile for burning, seats around a campfire and 180* views! It was amazing. We want to go back and stay at their other sites. A local swimming hole is available just a few minutes away as well as a fresh water spring for drinking and hiking paths right off our site.
Michelle was prompt and helpful in responding to us and was more than welcoming during our stay. They really have created a camping experience in nature and encourage people to make it theirs. Can’t wait to return!
Oh and look for fairy houses.
The place was amazing! The view from my site was out of control and I felt complete privacy. I would recommend this place to anyone who is a nature enthusiast and wants to enjoy camping the way its intended . Not to mention Michelle the site host was one of the nicest people I've ever met! My friends and I will definitely be returning!
Awesome views, private, central to everything we wanted to do. Nick was really helpful and responsive. A big bull moose wandered into our site which was amazing to see. This place was home base for a perfect weekend. 10/10.
There surely are only a few places that deserve 'Sanctuary' to be part of their name. this place truly does.
the sun was about to set, when we arrived at the Sacred Nectar Sanctuary and we were awed by the beauty of the place. we spent two nights on site 6 and one night on site 1. each site on Nick's land has a special view and atmosphere, and the place is filled with the magnificent details that he has added to them: the outdoor bathrooms (my 10 year old thought Nick should exhibit his creations at an art museum!), the path he opened behind the land that leads to the Whiteface Mountain trail (which has been so far one of the most interesting and beautiful hikes for us), the little friendly signs along this large piece of beautiful land (where you feel both completely alone in this wonderful nature and at the same time feel like a welcome guest of Nick and his family).
Nick has been an amazing, generous host, available for all our questions. he helped us find the trails that were perfect for us, and pointed us to the places worthwhile to see and visit.
this is one of the most peaceful places we have been to and we had a really hard time to leave. we so hope to be able to go back for some more of the light, and the sounds, the beautiful views, and the fantastic hikes!
Perhaps the best 4th of July fireworks display I've seen in my 62 year old life.......1000s of fireflies in the adjacent field.....with a full bullfrog chorus. Camping doesn't get much better than this!!!
Wow, it's hard to tell who had a better time on our site, us or the dog. The site was huge, the view of the mountains all around us was beautiful, amazing and inspiring. Nick and Michelle are the definition of awesome hosts, they gave us the proud campers tour with insight of things to come and the ideas they have for the property. They were super helpful with questions and anything we needed. We look forward tp our next trip!
