After several weeks of traveling every weekend, we were looking forward to slowing things down a bit as we got into the northeast part of the United States during fall. We originally had intended on staying out in Burlington, Vermont, but waited too long to make our reservation so we opted to continue onto New Hampshire. We choose Ames Brook Campground, located in a small town called Ashland, to be our home for two weeks.
Most of the camp appears to be full-time residents and we noticed that there were several spots that were up for sale. Several of them had decks, sheds, and even full-on sunrooms attached to them! We were down towards the back of the camp which put us close to the nature trail that runs off the back of the property. Having that close by was incredible as it gave Lulu a great place to explore.
Our site was kind of a combination of sand and grass but surprisingly we felt pretty level after setting up. Normally sand tends to give us some issues with swaying, but the grass must have helped out. The site itself was level and we had a fair amount of room outside of our front door to hang out and Aaron turned it into his “office” a few times. The park itself was really quiet and we felt like we just were left alone while we were there, which is a win in our book!
