How far is it from "civilization"??

Depends on your definition of civilization.

Its in New England, the northeaster corner of the US in the state of New Hampshire, perhaps 50 miles south of Canada or a little less. The town has about 900 people in it but they mostly live in a few pockets.

It takes us about 4.5 to 5.5 hours or 320 miles to get there but worth every minute. Someday when I dont need a job I'll live there.

That is great!! This is the paradise if you can live in a few pockets with all nature around you.
No cars, no cell phone, no stress, no job, no crime. A place like it is the "gate" of heaven, in Brazil or USA. The life will be better.

I camp all the time, though I haven't actually visited a proper camp ground in some time. Usually we just pack up the trucks and head to the forest service land around here (Sierra Nevada). My friends and I found a very beautiful spot that's exactly one hour from my house. It's well off the beaten path down miles of logging roads, and it's an expansive meadow with a swim-able (and fish-able) creek running through the middle of it. A five minute drive up the logging trail takes you to a waterfall with a natural granite water slide that lands in a 10-15 deep splash pool. It's awesome. We figure that the meadow is probably big enough to camp 100 people if we wanted to, and there are a ton of ATV trails all throughout the area. I'm looking forward to getting back up there once the snow melts.

I always like camping, I haven't been camping since 1996. Hopefully one day I'll get to go back.

Hope it's OK if I bump this up.

Tin Knocker, I like the same kind of camping you do. The less people the better. Mind if I ask the general area where your pictures were taken (no need to reveal your secret spots)? Or if you have any recommendations on a nice, quiet spot to spend a weekend?

I haven't camped in years because we had our own little cabin and woods prior to moving to NH, but now we're renters and I need my nature fix.


Brazilian, thanks for posting those pictures. Looks like your family knows how to have fun.

Not at all. Most of the are from up in Coos county. Our camp is in Stratford. Theres a campground just south of us on RT 3, Big Rock campground, theyre on the web if your interested. But I'm not sure I'd call it quiet. They cater to ATVers & snowmobilers, might be quiet now but in a few weeks they start getting busy.
There are however a couple different cabin rentals up the road in Columbia that might suit your needs.
Theres also cabins for rent/lease in Stratford bog. Those are fairly remote & while I'm certain it gets busy sometimes most times I go out there its very quiet, I like watching the loons & theres often moose in the bog pond. I dont know the perticulars, just that I always see for rent/lease signs on the camps.

Up a bit further in Pittsburg there are more camping spots & cabin/hotels too, many very close to or on the Connecticut lakes, its a truly beautiful area, a few of my pictures I posted were from Lake Francis & the First CT lake.

What I like the most about the north country up there is its all open, if you see something you think might be interesting to hike, hunt, fish, canoe or whatever its usually there for the taking.

Thanks, Tin Knocker, that's really helpful! Stratford Bog sounds perfect, I'll probably look for places there first. Might take a ride up there tomorrow, in fact. I'd like to scope out some areas in case we get drawn in the moose lottery.

Thanks again for the help. Those pictures are just awesome. What a great state this is.
