Campton is at the Center of Year-Round Excitement
With an ideal location in the foothills of the picturesque White Mountains, Campton is surrounded by an endless stream of activities that are sure to delight no matter what time of year you plan to visit.
The nearby Waterville Valley Resort is the perfect place to jump start any powder-filled getaway as it plays hosts to 52 downhill trails, terrain parks for every skill level, and a Superpipe where you can catch some serious air. However, if you prefer your winter adventures to take place away from the slopes, the Waterville Valley Nordic Center offers 70 kilometers of groomed cross-country skiing trails in addition to endless opportunities for snowshoeing.
Although Waterville Valley is certainly the most convenient option for snow-covered excitement, don’t forget that there are three other ski resorts just a short drive from most Campton NH vacation rentals. Tenney Mountain in Plymouth and Loon Mountain in Lincoln are both excellent resorts that should land at least one day on your itinerary, while Cannon Mountain in Franconia is a little bit further away but well worth the time if you can fit its 55 downhill trails into your vacation.
If you think that this is more than enough to make Campton your home base, take a look at all the adventures that abound in the warm weather months. The great outdoors take center stage in the White Mountain National Forest, where scenic drives are complemented by a wide array of activities such as hiking, mountain biking, canoeing and climbing.
In addition, water lovers will certainly appreciate Campton’s convenience to both the swimming, kayaking and fishing opportunities of the Pemigewasset River and the family-oriented adventures of the nearby Whale’s Tale Water Park. However, there are bound to be times when all you want to do is relax in a peaceful environment, and that is when the 18-hole Owl’s Nest Golf Course always seems to come to the rescue in this picture perfect town.
