From the harbor towns that hug the Atlantic to the hilly Appalachian slopes, there's so much to do and see as you weave your way through New Hampshire. The state is dotted with classic New England towns that speak of a simpler way of life. As one of the original 13 states, you'll see a bounty of historic colonial sites.
For those traveling by RV, be sure to steer your rig along the Kancamagus Scenic Byway that winds its way through the White Mountains. You'll also find the famed Appalachian National Scenic Trail not far from a KOA campground, the perfect place to explore miles of invigorating hiking.
To the south is the Lakes Region, another popular vacation destination. Your family will enjoy paddling in the small placid lakes or canoeing in sprawling Lake Winnipesaukee. All this and more makes for an unforgettable adventure in New Hampshire.
New Hampshire is renowned for its gorgeous outdoor spaces, historic towns and New England charm. While camping in New Hampshire, explore what the state has to offer by visiting places like:
Dartmouth-Lake Sunapee: This beautiful, serene region offers outdoor activities year-round. Lake Sunapee is the third largest lake in the state, providing plenty of opportunities to try some water sports. Enjoy a day of swimming, kayaking, fishing or simply taking in the gorgeous lake views.
The area is perfect for mountain lovers, too. Nearby Mount Sunapee and Mount Kearsarge provide numerous trails and slopes for hiking, skiing, snowboarding and snowmobiling.
Enjoy the outdoors while soaking up some local history by visiting The Fells and the John Hay National Wildlife Refuge in Newbury. The property is an early 20th-century summer estate formerly owned by John Hay, Abraham Lincoln's secretary. The estate features Colonial Revival buildings, beautiful gardens and hiking trails along Lake Sunapee.
If you love classic New England architecture, visit the Cornish-Windsor Bridge in Cornish. It is the longest wooden covered bridge in the United States, crossing the Connecticut River from New Hampshire to Vermont.
Great North Woods: The Great North Woods region of New Hampshire is a place of stunning forests, lakes, rivers and outdoor adventures. It is located at the remote northern tip of New Hampshire, poking into the underbelly of Quebec.
In Great North Woods, outdoor sports are a way of life during every season. It is the perfect place to enjoy virtually any outdoor activity, including hunting, fishing, mountain biking, hiking, all-terrain vehicle (ATV) riding, skiing and snowmobiling.
If you are an animal lover, Great North Woods provides many chances to see local wildlife. Spend time moose watching, or enjoy a dog sled ride at Muddy Paw Sled Dog Kennel in Jefferson.
Merrimack Valley: Merrimack Valley is known for its many unique historical sites. It is home to Concord, the state capital, and Manchester, the state's largest city. Today, these towns are hubs for the fine and performing arts, but their rich histories remain on display. The Millyard Museum highlights Manchester's 11,000 years of textile mill history, while 19th-century carriages, known as Concord Coaches, are featured throughout the city.
Just a short distance from Concord is the Canterbury Shaker Village, a community founded 200 years ago by Shakers that today serves as an outdoor history museum with 29 buildings offering tours, programs and events.
Also near Concord is Bear Brook State Park, an ideal location for picnicking, hiking, bicycling and swimming.
Seacoast: New Hampshire's 18-mile slice of Atlantic Ocean waterfront known as the Seacoast region is a favorite of many. Here, you will find the popular Hampton Beach, a gorgeous white-sand beach, and many places to enjoy swimming, fishing, canoeing and other water activities.
The Seacoast is also home to Portsmouth, a historic port city known for its cobblestone-lined streets, charming downtown and beautiful harbor.
