Come summer, a good portion of Boston and much of southern New England is thinking about heading up to New Hampshire’s Lake District to escape the heat and humidity. Many choose to go RV camping in places like Glendale or Wolfeboro on the south side of Lake Winnipesaukee – the crown jewel of lakes in the region. But if you want to avoid the hoards of summer tourists, you might prefer something like the Chocorua KOA near Ossipee and Silver Lake. Not only is it farther from the state’s primary travel corridor around Interstate 93, but it also has some fantastic amenities like full hookups with 50 amp service, 40-foot-long sites, a laundromat, and a Kamping Kitchen where you can prepare your meals outside of the motorhome rental.Chocorua KOA also has some great family-friendly facilities like hay rides, a game room, a basketball court, and an ice cream bar. If you’re traveling with a four-legged companion who is just as much a part of the family, there’s also a doggy daycare and dog park for them to run around in.Chocorua KOA is a little bit outside the town of Tamworth, which doesn’t have a whole lot of people, but does have easy access to the splendid White Lake State Park. When you book an RV in Carroll County, New Hampshire, you can also use the Blue Loon bus to get around the Lakes District if you’d prefer to leave the RV rental back at the park. It goes through towns like Wolfeboro, Conway, and North Conway – all great destinations for your New Hampshire road trip.

Camping with an RV

Have you ever wanted to sleep at the foot of a mountain or wake up to the sound of the ocean’s waves gently crashing on the shore?

Camping in an RV allows you to adventure on your terms. Whether you’re looking to bond over an open fire with family and friends or you just want to get away for a while, there’s no better way to do it than from behind the wheel of an RV.

The Great Outdoors

Most people that are RV camping at Chocorua KOA are coming there for the beautiful scenery. The White Mountains sit just north of the campground, providing an exquisite frame to the tranquil waters of the region’s many lakes. The Whites are some of New England’s most popular mountains to hike too, with iconic trails like Mount Washington’s Tuckerman’s Ravine and the Franconia Ridge Loop.Of course, it wouldn’t be a trip to the Lake District if you didn’t spend some time out on the water. If you’re an angler, Moore’s Pond on the east side of the campground offers some excellent fishing opportunities without the effort or expense of traveling to one of the larger lakes in the region. To explore the big lakes though, you might want to rent a kayak or something motorized, which can be found at outfitters in Laconia and Conway.A scenic drive is always in order when you’re near the White Mountains, and RV camping at the KOA is no exception. Block out a day for a drive along Highway 112, which runs from Lincoln in the west to Conway on the White’s eastern face. The views are nothing short of spectacular, especially in the Rocky Gorge Scenic Area. Trails branch off from the highway every few miles, so be sure to budget enough time to get out of the rig, stretch your legs, and enjoy the grandeur of this amazing alpine forest.

Exploring the City

While Tamworth may be the closest town to Chocorua KOA, if you’re looking for city amenities, you’ll need to go a few towns over to Conway. It’s the gateway to the eastern edge of the White Mountains, so it sees a lot of tourist traffic and has a more diverse selection of restaurants, shops, and things to do. The outdoor shopping center known as Settler’s Green is probably the most popular spot for some retail therapy when renting an RV in the area. There are all sorts of name brand outlets selling their products at discounted prices.If you’ve brought the kids along on this Tamworth camper rental adventure, you’ll probably want to take them on the Conway Scenic Railroad. The station is straight out of the mid-1800s, and the cars are a luxury experience in themselves. Having a delicious lunch in the dining car while observing the snow-capped peaks as you trundle through the mountains – what better way is there to see northern New Hampshire? For a bite-size version of the adventure, check out the North Conway Model Railroad Club. Stop in after your train ride, and you can retrace your journey in miniature scale.Those in need of a little culture with their rental RV adventure will appreciate the M&D at Eastern Slope Inn Playhouse. This community theater is as local as it gets, but their performances are professional through and through. Productions usually run for about a week once a month, so check their schedule to see if anything is happening during your visit.

Questions about RVs?

Q.

What type of RV should I choose?

A.

Start by determining how many people are planning to travel with you. Going on a solo-journey? Choose a camper van or a teardrop trailer. Bringing the whole family along for the ride? Consider a spacious Class A or five-wheel.

You’ll also want to consider amenities. For example, if you’re planning to cook on the road, you’ll want a kitchenette. If your campground doesn’t have public restrooms, you’ll want to search RVs with bathrooms. Check out full descriptions of our models to help you decide here.


Q.

Do the RVs have bathrooms?

A.

Yes. Class A’s, Class B’s, and Class C’s and five-Wheels typically have bathrooms. Depending on where you plan on camping, you’ll want to double-check the availability of restrooms if selecting a rig without a bathroom. Nervous about renting an RV with a bathroom? Owners can help show you how to clean the tank or will offer to do it for you for a fee.


Q.

How does check-in work?

A.

Once an Owner approves your RV reservation, you can coordinate a time to pick up your rig or have it delivered to your doorstep or campsite. At that point, the owner will do a key exchange with you and walk you through the RV and answer any questions you might have.
