The Enjoyment of Park Model Living and Destination Camping

The Best Kept Secret in the RV Industry I’ve often wondered why we don’t see higher sales numbers for park model trailers, given the role they play in our industry. Last year there were less than 5,000 park models sold in the entire country. Hopefully the numbers will start to increase now that the Go…

Ashuelot River Campground in Swanzee NH and Covered Bridges

Two Gals and a Dog, along with friend, Kellie, RV'd to Swanzee, NH recently for this New Hampshire destination. We stayed at the Ashuelot River Campground, peaceful, quiet campground with new owners who are investing and improving. As of 2017, they write that "they have 6 new pull-through water/sewer/electric sites; 9 new riverside water/electric sites; a new bathroom and dish washing station at the north end; and we’ve remodeled the existing bath house!"  Everything was very clean.

This video was taken on a Thursday. By Saturday, most of the lots were occupied. The only noise is the highway on the other side of the river, but you can't see it and it's not that bad. There are young maple trees on each RV space in the middle of the field which will eventually provide very nice shade for the full service hookups in that area. Right now, the wi-fi is available in the office area only. Many more amenities. Do check out their website. Highly recommended for a peaceful, quiet weekend. If you can do without the sewer hook-up we recommend the sites under the mature trees on the river.

All of the covered bridges in this video are an easy reach of the campground and a perfect reason to stay there. Timing is everything and we chanced upon a dinner dance on the Ashuelot Bridge and visit a local winery.
