Bear Brook State Park, NH

349 RV rentals

The state of New Hampshire began buying land in the southeastern corner of the state in the early 1900s with the intent of preserving the region. The park remained undeveloped until the early 1930s when President Roosevelt began the now-famous New Deal program, in which unemployed young adults were put to work across the country. Called Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC), a cadre of New Hampshire residents built several outbuildings and structures in what would later become Bear Brook State Park and blazed several miles of trails.

Today, Bear Brook State Park is also the site of three museums: the Richard Diehl Civilian Corps Museums, which details some of the work they did in the state as well as displays photographs …

Cardigan Mountain State Park, NH

295 RV rentals

The Appalachian Mountain Club purchased a little over 500 acres of land covering Mount Cardigan's eastern face in New Hampshire in 1934. The intent was to create a ski resort or destination to fund their other activities under the guidance of two renowned ski-trail designers Duke Dmitri von Leuchtenberg and Charles Proctor. The Civilian Conservation Corps, which was established by President Roosevelt’s New Deal program, blazed several miles of trails that would be used for both hiking and cross-country skiing (also known as Nordic skiing). Although this notion of making Mount Cardigan a premier ski destination never came to fruition, many outdoor adventurers enjoy exploring the woods of Cardigan Mountain State Park.

Clough State Park, NH

360 RV rentals

In 1938, a hurricane nicknamed Long Island Express (they didn’t receive official names until 1950) roared up the eastern seaboard, flooding cities, and towns along the way. Several towns in New Hampshire were devastated even though the hurricane was weakened by the time it arrived in the upper New England region. To prevent a recurrence, the United States Army Corps of Engineers constructed a few dams in the area, including the one on Piscataquog River. A small lake, Everett Lake, was formed as a result, and the state of New Hampshire created a small state park, Clough State Park, in 1963 to facilitate recreational fun on the lake.

Coleman State Park, NH

The mysterious yet alluring Great North Woods also referred to as “North Country” by the locals, encompasses much of northern New Hampshire.

The rebellion was brought to their knees by British officials, who essentially forced the leaders to sign a treaty at gunpoint. Though it has been a few generations since that event, the old-timers are still disgruntled about it even to this day.
