Thumbs down Make A Suggestion!

We are considering a New England vacation this year and would be interested in hearing a few suggestions. We are considering the Vermont area (Walking Falls) donít know anything about it per say but weíre not limiting our travels to that alone. Weíve heard about it but donít really know that much about it. We really enjoy lighthouses, good scenery, Victorian houses, some civil war interest and nice campgrounds. We generally like to take day trips from a campground for 2-3 days at a time then move on somewhere else.

Thanks!

New England camping

Are you looking for State parks or private camp grounds? I can not say too much on Vermont, it is a beautiful state. A lot of farm country, Green mountains are nice.

We are partial to NH, have a Camp in the Mountains (Canaan with a few Camp site hook ups) Franconia Notch area is awesome for hiking to water falls, Not far from Mount Washington. Meredith area has Lake Winnipesauke, several real nice areas to camp there. North Conway area has great hiking and water falls. (a hobby of ours is hiking water falls, so we know these areas real well). If you want Light houses the Maine coast is just incredible! Let me know if you need any info on an area, I can dig it up.


Here are a few for NH.

Any cg will work that has a large enough pad. We are almost 40 feet and over that with a toad. We are interested in anything in the whole New England area as well, not just something in Vermont.

Talking

The length will limit you. One of our favorite places is Cannon Mountain State park, they can accomodate any length. It has only a few sites, and not many people know it's even there. Has W/S/E and is local to a ton of hiking oportunities. The photo attached is on top of Artist Bluff looking down on the park. (not our AS this was taken Pre AS we are the 3rd one in from left) Great fishing there too. Located a few hundred yards off Interstate 93 (Exit 34C) If your coming up this way the White Mountains are a must see and this is central to everything in the area.
I'll look to see what Maine has for your requirements.

How about Boston to Cape Cod!

How about Southeastern Mass. Myles Standish State Park is a great park and it's right off of Rte 3 in Plymouth. You'd have several day trip options with Boston only an hour away, The Cape and Islands minutes over the bridge. If you like Victorian houses there are several gingerbread houses on Martha's Vineyard as well as the Main Streets of the Cape. Route 6A is one of the most scenic drives in the US. Chatham Lighthouse is one of the most beautiful places to watch a sunset on the beach (and it's free) don't forget to bring some wine and cheese. If you have kids they'll love playing in the sand and water while you enjoy the view. Further down Cape you'll come to the National Seashore and Marconi Beach (first transatlantic phone line) and the Nauset Lighthouse is there. Plymouth Rock and the Mayflower are minutes from the park. Boston is fabulous with so many historic sites (pre civil war) Bunker Hill, Old Ironsides, Fanneul Hall. Don't forget Fenway Park. There are so many things to see and do around here you'll have trouble deciding. If you do decide to go up to Maine may I suggest Acadia National Park, lots of great camping and bike riding the carriage trails is great fun. Hop a ferry run by the park service out to Big or Little Cranberry Island and enjoy the seals lounging on the rocks. Here's the website for Mass State Parks
http://www.mass.gov/dcr/forparks.htm
and the one for Southeastern Mass and the Islands
http://www.mass.gov/dcr/southeast.htm

I hope this is helpful. Feel free to PM if you want any specifics.

A tour of Lake Champlain is the first thought that comes to mind. Nice scenery, some lighthouses, quaint towns, ferry rides. The grounds of the Shelburne Museum offer an interactive experience of folk life and history in Vermont. The Champlain islands are worth a visit and have several places to stay along the lake.

Route 100 along the spine of the Green Mountains is another scenic route. Campgrounds along the way and historic towns (nearby Woodstock is charming).

Vermont has more revolutionary war sites that it does civil war sites. There is a civil war expo in Tunbridge in late Sept./early Oct. (The Tunbridge "World's Fair" is also held around this time.) Quintessential rural Vermont.

Talking Maine Camping

For light houses Maine may be the best place to visit.
The most photographed Light house in the world is Nubble Light http://www.lighthouse.cc/capeneddick/
Then there is the Famous Freeport Maine, Home to world-famous L.L.Bean http://www.freeportusa.com/
There are several very nice camping oportunities in the area there. (We are planning a trip to camp there in March) http://www.freeportcamping.com/
I could keep going but I think you can get a good idea from the links.

Happy Camping

New England is a great choice!

I hope you are planning a lengthy stay as there is so much to enjoy in the area. Over the last thirty years, most of our vacations were in Vermont, New Hampshire, and Maine.

Since our camping days were as tent campers (with six children and often a guest), I can't suggest too much from an TT point of view. Many of our campsites were a bit remote though we enjoyed state parks in both NH and Vermont but services were not a priority. Our favourite in Maine was Acres of Wildlife near Steep Falls. Somewhat out of the way but great for day trips and then a return to the shade of the woods. It is in the Sebago Lake area and there are many other campgrounds in that area.

The last eighteen years saw us renting cottages in the Lake Champlain Islands, and again I can't say enough about the area.

At the moment, I am a TT wantabe and am hoping to get back on the road to revisit New England and explore other places.

Good luck with your planning.
