We enjoyed the location, cleanliness and staff minus the owner. I have an outside rv tv and the volume was so low I didn’t even know it was still on. I was told my tv was unnecessary. I apologized and turned it off. 30 minutes later the owner approached me with a flashlight in my eyes saying my fire poking was too loud. I was offended and scared as a female alone at my campsite with a strange man blinding me with a flashlight. He asked me if I cared about my neighbor and I asked them both the next day if they heard anything and they both said no. Not right and quite a bullying technique if you ask me.
If you like to smell trash/listen to the highway while you are camping this place is for you. Also don’t let your children have fun riding their bikes on their granite walkways as that also is frowned upon. Our dog was also forbidden to leave the campsite because he was a Rottweiler ( we have been camping three years and never run into this problem) They could have disclosed all of this and we could’ve booked elsewhere. Only plus side was Shep Browns marina. If we hadn’t brought our boat we would’ve have even stayed one night. It’s a shame that a place with such potential is a total letdown.
We’ve driven by this campground numerous times and never thought to stop. It is right off a busy main road so how good could it be. Plus it is close to Meredith harbor and that is an expensive touristy area. We’ll surprise, surprise. It was great. The people that work here were friendly and everything was clean and neat. The campground is very wooded. The camp sites were very very large. The roads were mostly dirt and wandered all over (could use a few more signs). The bathrooms were clean and a bit rustic and were scattered about with in a reasonable distance w/showers. Did I say the sites were large and wooded? The water pressure was good. But the sewer just sat in the inlet (not screwed in), so I had to balance a few rocks on it to keep it in place. We got a site fairly close to the office so traffic noise was an issue. The camp store was very limited in what was available plus it was expensive. The pool was really really nice but only heated by solar (sunshine). Lots to do in the area. Loved this place We will be back. I heard this place gets full during the summer months so book early.…
My family and I stayed here for a few days while on vacation near Lake Winnepesaukee. It’s within minutes of downtown Meredith, but the traffic can be a bit of a nightmare. Especially on the weekends. Campsite was in a nice location, kids had plenty of space to run around without getting in anybody’s way Bathrooms were very clean, but similar to an outhouse. Two small outdoor stalls next to each other, with the hand washing sink around the corner. The dishwashing sink was directly across from it, with an automatic light overhead. Showers you have to pay 25cents for 5 minutes, I guess so you don’t waste water? Only one shower though, so you’ll have to wait your turn or walk to another bathroom Two playgrounds on site but nothing too exciting Pool area is great, lounge chairs for sunbathing and plenty of seating Campground is bigger than it looks, we took our kids for a walk to explore everything and they had fun Only negatives I would say: - maybe only have one really nice playground instead of two mediocre ones? The play areas were okay, but it didn’t keep my kids busy for more than 5 minutes - Also really didn’t like having to pay for the shower, amenities like that should be included in your stay. Would probably stay here again regardless of the negatives, which aren’t that big …
My aunt and uncle have a permanent site here and my wife and I came for a week to visit them. When we arrived we went to the front desk to check in and get our gate pass. The staff was very friendly and helpful. They gave us a map looked up where we had to go and highlighted our route over and made it very easy. There are 3-4 bath houses a playground and a pool. The campground is very clean and quite. It's also very close to everything in meredith. We had a great time and would definitely stay here again.
We stayed for a week in July. The grounds were quiet, clean and had everything you might want. Campsites were spaced out for privacy. The seasonal campers were friendly but not intrusive. Very very quiet and relaxing. Convenient location for day trips.
Went back to basics with my daughter from a relaxing tent camping weekend. Great staff, clean restrooms and nice tent sites. Could be more space depending how neighbor sets up tent. Peaceful, walk aroundable, on site trails and pool.
Hats-off to RJ and Staff for a delightful one-week stay at the Harbor Hill Camping Area! Our request for a private and quiet area was accommodated by Harbor Hill assigning us to Site #7. However, the adjacent sites in our area (#5, #8) offered a similar experience. Note that sites #7 & #8 have 50A and #5 has 30A. These sites are on the outside of a small loop near the athletic field and are oriented at an angle that affords the awning side of your site a view into the woods and not to your neighbor's site. At night, the campground is very quiet and other campers were very respectful of the quiet hours. In fact, the only sound that we were able to hear was from the traffic on Rt. 25 at the front of the campground's entrance. By midnight, all was quiet. If you are a late-sleeper, you'll love the quiet mornings as you have a cup coffee and watch the woodpeckers, robins and sparrows move about the woods. The site services (full hookups) were excellent. Electricity was a steady 118V (per our PT30X EMS) and water pressure was limited to 40psi by our campground site's pre-installed water pressure regulator. Our sewer pipe required the use of a sewer doughnut for a perfect seal, so be kind to your neighbors and don't forget to bring one! The cable TV hookup brought in 20+ stations with excellent picture quality on every one. We loved walking our dog on the campground roads day and night. Such friendly campers! However, bring a headlamp or flashlight as most of the campground is unlit. While you're out at night, head over to the athletic field and view the dark and starry skies for a while. We saw several meteors steak across the sky at the tail-end of the Delta Aquariids meteor shower. Harbor Hill is at the northern tip of Lake Winnipesaukee and, as others have mentioned, just about 2-3 miles east on Rt. 25 from all the conveniences found in Meredith, NH. However, getting into Meredith can take some time if the traffic is heavy. We enjoyed going east to Center Harbor to shop and walk the town. While you are there, treat yourself to some incredible, freshly-made bagels at Winnipesaukee Bay Gulls just over the Center Harbor/Moultonborough line on the south side of Rt. 25. Our departure day brought the realization that we had lost our one remaining CH751 key and a padlock key while we were visiting Wolfeboro. The missing keys left us without a way to unlock/lock our hybrid's bunks and remove our EMS from the power pedestal! RJ and Staff rescued us in about 10-minutes with a replacement key and a bolt-cutter to free our EMS. We were so impressed with the beauty of the campground and by the attentiveness of the staff! They are truly customer driven and strived to make our stay as enjoyable as possible.…
This is my second review on a return visit. Great campsite. Has all the hook-ups you need with free wifi and cable TV. Quiet, clean with super clean bathrooms and showers. The camp is well maintained. Has a pool and a couple playgrounds for the kids AND a recreation room with arcade games, pool, ping-pong and other games. Free DVD and book lending library, so if you aren't enjoying the great outdoors or walking on their nature trails, you can just read or watch. Easy access to the lake or hiking trails in the area. Also just a mile away from downtown Meredith where you can do all kinds of stuff. Staff is friendly and accommodating.
Campsites are level and maintained. Bathrooms and showers are very clean. Campsites are a little close but far enough for some privacy. The pool is also very nice for a campground pool. They take pride in taking care of their campground and it shows.
