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.

Coleman State Park, NH

92 RV rentals

The mysterious yet alluring Great North Woods also referred to as “North Country” by the locals, encompasses much of northern New Hampshire. The residents in this region very nearly seceded from the United States in 1835 over a dispute that was started by a debt owed to a hardware store. 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.

The town of Colebrook, just about 12 miles west, has a variety of restaurants, shops, and a small hospital with an emergency health center. The town is …
