After a few years of trying to come to an agreement on a campground that met my requirements (shower, toilets) and my husband's (no swimming pool, video game arcade, and enough space between camp sites for private conversations and room for kids to run) we discovered Pawtuckaway State Campground in Nottingham, NH. Only 90 minutes from where we live, this campground feels like we have left the worries of the world behind. After checking in (a quick process if you have reservations) you drive approximately 2-3 miles down their private road to get to the sites. This means you don't hear cars in the distance, no sounds of civilization at all. The lake is HUGE (by the way, the story is interesting...it's a man made lake and there are rumored to be houses under water from the village that was located there). Marine patrol is strict about the no wake areas (thank you...we kayak). You can kayak for hours and not see it all. We've been going there for about 18 years now and love it. Huge sites allow kids to run and play. The campground roads are perfect for kids riding bikes. Different parts of the campground are best for varying needs. Horse Island (one section) is divided into two parts. The section with the lowest assigned numbers (EX. site #12) is perfect for those with very small kids on little bikes as there is no traffic on this one road that goes in a circle. The other part of Horse Island isn't much busier but there are more roads here and they are longer so you get occasional speed demons and there is one corner where cars come around and can't see if kids are coming. The third part of the campground is more wooded and rustic. We preferred it with very young kids because of the lack of water....no concerns of them falling in and drowning. I can't wait to go in July. We tie our kayaks to a tree for the entire time, making it easy to jump in and out of them at any time. Ah...heaven.
