We are like 3 or 4 people from CS NYC and would like to go camping to Lake Winnipesaukee or any place around. I wonder if we can take public transportation.
Also we would like to contact any cs in the area, so we can join your group. We just want to leave the city.
Any comments or suggestions will be very appreciated.
I am not an expert on this sort of thing... I think there is is like one bus a day up north... I hope someone else can tell us a good place to go camping in NH because I don't know any place... I never do that sort of thing...
But first you should find a location, and then find transportation. Definitely Lake Winnipesaukee?
It is rather difficult actually... maybe someone can pick you up?
Thank you for the info. I think at the end we'll just go to Martha's vineyard.
hahaha... well then...
I would have suggested somewhere in Franconia Notch if you wanted to camp.... for next time.
i agree that the notch is something worth seeing. plus there is webster lake.
hey man, theres an amtrak that leaves grand central and goes to white river junction, nh, from which you can hike and camp for free on the appalachian trail, or else try to hitch to winepesaukee.
Humberto, I plan to be in the Lake W area during the weekend of May 25-28. I am not available to host per se but I could offer you guys a place to visit and chill out for a few hours and even grill (we have a deck and gas grill). I just thought I'd throw the offer out there in support of your 'Get Out Of The City' mission. We are near the south eastern tip of Lake Winnipesaukee in/around Alton Bay, with the public beach (Alton Beach), great hiking (Mt. Major), and a few camping grounds nearby.
I can look into some transportation options for you but it may require some planning + ingenuity + flexibility on your part. First, a question: Are you planning on taking a bus to NH from NYC? If so, Laconia NH or Portsmouth NH or Rochester NH may be your best bets. Please update the thread as to your tentative plans and I will see what I can tell you about your options more locally.
There is a marina (or two) close by where boats can be rented by the day (maybe hour, as well), if that fits your budget. I think it's around $200 for a big cruising boat for the whole day.
If you do come to Alton, we would be happy to lend a frisbee, fishing pole and/or join you guys at the Beach for a few hours or a day, barring any other commitments we have.
The nearby campgrounds are:
Paugus Bay (Laconia)
Because of the bad weather, 2 of the cs people decided to go to a closer place and my friend doesn't want to go without them. It's a pity that we won't go. I really wanted to go. I will keep your comments for another long weekend.
Hope you have fun. Next year plan ahead, NH is great place to visit, hike and camp. The people are friendly too. Check our events...
