Hinsdale RV Resort and Campground in southwest New Hampshire is an excellent place to set up camp for packs passing through the Granite State. Hinsdale is just minutes away from beautiful Pisgah State Park, which is no surprise considering the park's postcard-like setting and vibrant old-growth trees.
When you're not reconnecting with nature, you can enjoy a relaxing swim in one of the resort's two in-ground pools, kick up some dust on the ATV riding trails, or spend some family time at the on-site playground with the human kiddos. If that's not enough fun for your group, hit the shuffleboard or basketball courts for a healthy dose of competition.
The forested surroundings and its large population of wildlife make this campground a big hit with pooches as well, since there is so much to see and sniff. Be sure to clip on a leash on Fido before you go exploring — it is easy for a little dog to get lost among the trees. Stuff some disposable bags in your pockets when you head out to walk Fido so you can promptly clean up any deposits they make along their way.
The campground has 88 sites, 10 of which are tent-only, and the rest are split between back-in, pull-through, and extra-large RV sites. Though the RV spots aren't paved, the packed dirt and gravel make for fairly level sites, though they can get muddy after a heavy rain. Guests can choose between a site with full hookups for maximum comfort, or stick with a basic site with only water and electric. Regardless of your camping style, each guest has access to the restrooms, bathhouses, and laundry rooms — all of which are ADA accessible. Rates start at $40 for tent sites.
There are some breed restrictions here, although the specific breeds aren't listed on the resort's website. Be sure to call ahead to confirm your canine can accompany you. You'll also need to provide vaccination records at check-in.
Hinsdale RV Resort and Campground is open from mid-April to the end of October yearly, but don't wait until spring break is almost over to start making plans — this is not a campground to hibernate on!
