6 Glorious Campgrounds In New Hampshire Where No Reservation Is Required

Maybe you’re the kind of person who plans out each summer weekend months ahead, complete with campground reservations and dinner menus. Or, maybe you’re like most of us and you tend to wing it a little more. If that describes you, bookmark this list of campgrounds with designated walk-in only campsites for those weeks when you suddenly decide on a Friday or Saturday that you absolutely need to go camping, but don’t have a plan.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/

We hope this list makes your summer bucket list a little easier to achieve! Of course, it never hurts to call ahead to make sure campgrounds aren’t already full – but a list of places that don’t require reservations is a great starting point. Please also note that walk-ins can be possible at New Hampshire state parks depending on availability – calling the site to ask is a great idea. The New Hampshire State Parks website has contact information and a great tool to let you see what’s still available on the next weekend, if you have a little more notice.

Happy camping!
