We were lovers of the Lantern and had been spending many weekends there for several years. Last year we were able to get a seasonal spot and we were over the moon happy. This was a great thing for our family as all three of our children have ADHD and in addition our oldest child has an Autism Spectrum Disorder... More

Our stay at The Lantern gas always been great! The camper was spotless and the service was excellent. I cannot recommend this place enough. John and Norma are gracious hosts and ate the reason we keep coming back.

We spent 2 nights in the motel and my kids really enjoyed the hay ride, park and even the kid activites! Amanda was fun and loving, my boys even hugged her good bye. But as someone who is a huge clean freak I feel the bath tub floor could've been cleaner and the toilet should be cleaned as a whole... More

John and Norma Ahern are trail angels!!! While hiking the 165 mile Cohos Trail with a friend this month, we arrived at a trailhead exhausted. We had made reservations for a campsite at the Lantern Resort, so we called to see if we could get a ride. John swooped in, picked us and our gear up, and delivered us! With... More

I have been staying at the Lantern Resort Motel and Campground for the past 6 years. My husband and his family have returned every Labor Day weekend for close to if not more than 20 years!!! There is no doubt that this campground is the best one out there, especially in the Jefferson, NH area. I could go on and... More

We stayed the Lantern Resort Motel and Campground as part of our visit to Santa's Village. We booked the room in June and we asked if we could block off some rooms for friends who might be booking there as well. They were very accommodating and held a block of rooms despite the fact that it was for a busy... More

We rented their RV Trailer Rental four years in a row, August 2009, 2010, 2011, and 2012. We didn't this year as a change, but I would definitely recommend this place. It's resort camping, and the children enjoyed it. Two years we did the Halloween weekend, and the third year we 'took a break' and rented in the week. The... More

We just returned from a three night stay at the Lantern Campground and experienced first hand the customer service that goes above and beyond expectations. We were traveling in a 45' Motorhome towing a Jeep Commander. I had my wife, my daughter and my grandchild as well as my daughters friend and her child. When we approached the Lantern from... More

Thanks to the property maintenance manager, Neil, he keeps this camp ground spic 'n span. There are 2 pools with hot tubs which are also very clean. Camp ground is not dirt, it is well maintained grass ! Young children can enjoy... More

I will send this around to all my employees. They do work very hard all summer long and really appreciate when they are recognized by our guests for doing such a great job. It is a "Team Effort" of the whole staff to keep the property in tip top condition. Thanks again and hope to see you real soon. John More

The only thing that i was disappointed with was they never turned on the heater for the pools on so the water was cold, so we didnt swim which was a disappointment and the hot tub is very small and the kids were always in it so i couldnt use it. But everything else was perfect!! Clean, plenty of towels,... More

Hi CIndy: Sorry about the pool temperature. We have been manually regulating the temperature this season as we have had issues with the heaters being tampered with. The weather has been unusually colder the past couple of days and even colder at night. It is our goal to keep the pool temperatures in the area of 80 degrees. On your... More
