Basic rules and regulations have been established in
order to insure that all of our campers have an
enjoyable stay. For this reason, rules are strictly
enforced. Please observe the following guidelines during
your stay at Tamworth Camping Area.
All of our campsites have a picnic table. A fireplace
with a grate is on all sites, with the exception of
safari sites # 11-20. (NO CAMPFIRES at these sites.) All
Campfires must be out by MIDNIGHT. In addition, the Fire
Warden requires that a six-foot radius around all
fireplaces be kept clear of all leaves, debris, wood,
etc. The Fire Warden has given us the authority to place
our own fire ban if conditions require it. Only severe
drought or unusually high winds would necessitate a fire
ban. Please keep fires low and attended. Please dispose
of ALL smoking materials in fireplaces only. This means
using ash trays outside and dumping ash trays in
fireplaces. It takes only one small spark to start a
forest fire! It is a violation of NH state law to move a
In order to have enough water to get through the busy
summer season, we MUST conserve at all times. Please
conserve water when washing dishes, taking a shower, and
flushing toilets in trailers. Unnecessary use of water
for washing cars or trailers is NOT permitted.
We welcome pets here at Tamworth Camping Area. All pets
MUST be on a leash, cleaned up after, and not left
unattended at any time. There are a couple of local
kennels where you can board your dog if you prefer.
Please call us for information.
The maximum speed limit for all campground roads is 5
miles per hour. Please drive carefully! Pedestrians
ALWAYS have the right of way!
Barrels are placed next to the dumpster across from the
Rec Barn for separation of aluminum cans. All other
Household Rubbish must be placed in plastic bags and
tied tightly. Rubbish bags are available at the office
for FREE if you don’t have your own. Please place tied
bags in the dumpster located across from the Rec Barn.
Put rubbish in dumpster every day by 2:30PM.
No more than one or two cars may be parked on a site at
any one time. Certain sites cannot handle the second car
when the site is filled with camping equipment. Extra
cars or cars which obstruct road traffic must be parked
in the Visitors Parking Area, located along the left
side of the entrance road just before the cabins. Please
refrain from parking extra cars on an empty site or in
open areas between sites or on the grass.
All Visitors, both day and overnight, must register and
pay at the office before entering the camping area.
Visitors must park in designated parking area. ALL day
visitors must leave the camping area by 10:00PM. No

The gate is FULLY operational 24 Hours per day. You may
always leave the camping area by pulling close to the
orange bar which senses the metal in your vehicle and
opens automatically. To enter the camping area, you must
check in at the office when you first arrive. At that
time, you may pay a $10 deposit on a gate card which
allows you entry at your convenience. You receive a $10
refund when you turn your plastic gate card in at the
office. Day Visitors or those who are here for just one
night may gain entry by first registering at the office
and then pulling up to the gate and displaying their car
pass at the passenger window. Only one vehicle may pass
through the gate at one time. The bar must come down
after each vehicle. Attempts to rush through more than
one vehicle on one lift of the gate could result in
damage to your vehicle or the gate. Cost to you of
replacing a damaged gate is $50. If you are towing a
non-metal utility trailer or boat, please check at the
office before proceeding through the gate.
The State of New Hampshire prohibits dumping of gray
water on the ground. Guests who do not have on-site
sewage must use one of the following services to take
care of both “black water” and “gray water” disposal. A
pull through “Dump Station” is provided next to the
Field Bath House for the convenience of our camping
guests. A 22-gallon blue “honey wagon” is available for
your self-service use.
Additional Information for Laconia Motorcycle Rally
Things are shaping up for a fun filled
Laconia Motorcycle Week this year,
as we welcome bikers from all the New England states
plus Florida, Ohio, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, New York,
Michigan, Minnesota, Virginia, Missouri, Maryland, and
beyond. Just a few notes so we will all be on the same
page when you arrive. Please read the following
information carefully since you are responsible for
understanding each of these policies. Please do not
hesitate to contact us if you have questions which we
have not answered.
from the Rally:
We are 25 miles from Weirs Beach, which is the center of
most of the activity. It is about a 40 minute ride on
good state highways.
Our campsites are large, level and private, so you have
room for your camping equipment, and/or motorcycle
trailer, tow vehicle and bikes right on your site. There
is ample parking nearby for motorcycle trailers or extra
cars which you may not be needing during your stay.
Please ask a staff person for directions to the extra
We do limit our site occupancy to four adults at any
time, including daytime visitors, so that our facilities
will operate efficiently when every site is occupied.
Basic site prices range from $29-$38 per night,
depending upon the amenities of the site, for 2 adults.
Extra adults are $10 per night each. A day-only visitor
is $5 per adult. Day visitors must leave by 10PM. All
visitors must check in and out at the office!
Our security gate is always operational and requires a
card to enter the camping area. All two-wheeled and
four-wheeled vehicles must use the gate. Every campsite
has an assigned card which you receive at check-in. A
second card may be requested at that time if your
camping party members will be returning at different
times. A $10 cash deposit is required for each card. A
security person is on duty in the evenings, and the
answering system for the office phone is checked
Our office hours are generally 8:00AM to 8:00PM, Sunday
through Thursday, and 8:00AM to 10:00PM on Friday and
Saturday. Check-in time is from 2:00PM to closing. If
you have problems along the way, we welcome a phone call
to let us know when you will be arriving so we can make
arrangements for you to find your site when you arrive.
Bathroom & Laundry Facilities:
We have a total of 10 showers located at three different
bathroom facilities and they are all unisex and coin
operated. A fourth bathroom facility has sinks and
toilets only. We have washers and driers at the Rec Barn
and next to the office. Change is available at the
office or store (no change machines).
We have several very nice restaurants within a few miles
of the camping area, as well as MacDonald’s, Subway and
Dunkin Donuts. We also have a small store next to the
office where we sell campfire wood, cold drinks (not
alcoholic), ice, and a limited variety of groceries
(including coffee, ice cream, snack foods, fishing &
camping accessories, health & beauty items, toys, gifts,
souvenirs and clothing.) Larger full service grocery
stores are 8-14 miles from our door (about 10-20 minutes
Available at the Camping Area:
On Saturday, June 17th, we will have a Bikers “All You
Can Eat” Pancake Breakfast at our Rec Barn beginning at
7:30AM and running until 10:30AM. The cost is $7.00 per
person for juice, coffee, tea, cocoa, plain or blueberry
pancakes with real maple syrup, fruit, and yogurt.
Proceeds benefit Heifer International, an organization
helping the world’s hungry to feed themselves by
teaching them to raise animals and practice sustainable
agriculture. Our animals enjoy being patted and fed with
grain we sell in our store. Swimming and tubing may be
enjoyed from our beach or directly from your waterfront
site. Fishing with bait or flies may be enjoyed upstream
from our swimming area or downstream from the last
campsite. Fishing upstream beyond the bridge across
Route 113 is fly fishing only.
& Refund Policy:
There is a $10.00 fee on each site that is cancelled.
Cancellations received prior to May 20th will receive a
full refund less the $10.00 fee per site. Cancellations
received on or after May 20th will be refunded only for
the actual days the site is re-rented.
We anticipate that everyone will be considerate of their
fellow campers by operating their bikes as quietly as
possible, particularly if you are returning to your
campsite after the 11:00PM quiet time. Quiet Hours
should be maintained until 8:00AM.
All of our staff will be happy to assist you with any
problem or emergency. Please report such situations to
the office immediately so we can contact any needed
local emergency personnel. Their response time is quite
good. Our local Hospital in Wolfboro operates their
outpatient as a daily walk-in clinic, and their
Emergency Room is always available. Emergency phone
calls are delivered as soon as we get them.
Cell phone service has been spotty but is getting
better. US Cellular, Nextel and Verizon seem to be the
most consistently available. We also have a public phone
on the deck to the right of the office door (free call
to our office after hours).
For those who are traveling from outside New England, we
are geographically in the middle of New England. Within
an hour’s ride, you can be at the lakes, in the
mountains, or at the seacoast. We maintain a well
stocked brochure rack for area attractions. We also have
a small farm right here, and our waterfront along the
Swift River exemplifies the pristine mountain stream.
We have two motorcycle shops within a few miles of our
door, plus the Harley dealers shops in Meredith and
North Conway. There is also a local NAPA dealer within a
few miles of the campground.
