Are you more at home in water than on dry land? At Exeter Elms Family Campground, a kid-friendly forest park with a mile of river frontage two miles from Exeter in New Hampshire, you’ll be living your best life in no time.

Exeter Elms is a 20-minute drive from Hampton Beach on the Atlantic coast, where you can take a dip or go on a whale watching trip, and is 30 minutes from Water Country water park. If you’d prefer to stay closer to camp, you can access the Exeter River directly from the property for fishing – the river is also a good spot for kayaking and canoeing, and you can hire either from the site.

There’s plenty to do on site if you’re looking for a break from splashing around: have a go on the volleyball, basketball and bocce courts, play a game of football, fish from the river banks or cool off in the pool.

Once you’ve worked up an appetite, head to the restaurant, grab something from the takeaway or convenience store, or fire up the barbecue and eat at one of the picnic tables dotted around the site.

Local attractions

If you’re still craving some time in the water, head to Hampton Beach State Park, 25 minutes’ drive away, for sea swimming and bathhouses or, if you prefer to keep your feet on dry land, the park is a top spot for hiking and biking. You can also explore the gardens and trails at Prescott Park or go walking and wildlife spotting at Sagamore Creek, both within 30 minutes of the site.

While up in Portsmouth for Prescott Park and Sagamore Creek, there are plenty of museums to visit and walking tours to join – a trip to the USS Albacore maritime museum aboard a decommissioned submarine is a must.

Fans of a tipple should make their way around the breweries, vineyards and distilleries within 20 minutes of Exeter Elms. Not much of a drinker? Get your buzz elsewhere: nab a prime spot at the New England Dragway, 15 minutes away, and let the smell of burning rubber fill your nose.
