I'm a tenter and have been for the past 20 years of my camping life. I visited this campground last month and had an ok experience. the sites are small but for a tenter it's ok. If you have a camper you should be fine with the hookups but again be warned the sites are small and narrow so just... More

My son was in a weekend lacrosse tournament in Keene, NH. I was planning on commuting the almost 2 hour drive each day. A friend suggested camping over. I was not on board, my son was, he knew best. What a great experience, we had the best time. Now I should mention the weather was perfect and my buddy basically... More

My friends and I had a great experience here. We rented a tent site. It has electricity hook ups, which were a bonus. Yes, you have to walk a little ways for the bathroom, but it is CAMPING. I'm amazed at the reviews complaining about bathroom facilities being far (took me all of two minutes to walk there). I mean,... More

My wife and I chose this campground due to its proximity to Keene, New Hampshire and the Pumpkin Festival that we would attend there. We arrived a little after 9:00 pm and they were kind enough to stay open to allow us to check in. It's a good thing that I called beforehand because Janet informed me NOT to follow... More

My boyfriend and our parents stayed at this campground for the weekend. Our parents have campers and we were in a tent. The sites are very nice and private enough. We did have a hard time fitting our tent on the site with the camper (we have a 6 person tent). There are no open field type campsites. This campground... More

Last weekend I had the pleasure of staying with six of my college friends at Swanzey Lake Camping Area. I am not much of a camper but I have to say, what a great find! What I'd really like to talk about was the sense of community. The owners as well as the seasonable campers treated each other like family.... More

We had the pleasure of camping at Swanzey Lake Campground for several months last summer. Unlike some of the other reviewers, we had a great experience. We were a rare breed at the campground--most seasonal campers were in rv's, whereas we spent the summer in tents with no electricity. We were not treated like second-class citizens as another reviewer said...in... More

Both my son and I have been seasonal campers at Swanzey Lake form many years. We (and our wives) occupy two sites which are across the road from each other. The lake is pristine with water so clear that you can see the bottom while standing chest deep. The fishing is good (the lake is stocked) but you will need... More

The lake is across the road. It's not a long walk, and it is absolutely beautiful. Photographic opportunities abound. Foliage was beautiful around the lake. We had two sites, our daughter's family on one, we were next door. Our granddaughter couldn't stay away from the lake. She is five and loved "fishing." Somebody was walking to the lake with her...

The Good: Really beautiful lake and sunning area! The Truth: Camping area is across the street from the lake... not a big deal, but still a hike from the rentable sites. There are NO flushable facilities or showers in the camping portion of the area. There are only a couple of outhouse's, which are pretty rugged (should be condemned)! If... More
