Be Prepared: Please be prepared to be self-sufficient. Have your own provisions such as first aid kit, food, water, extra clothing for unplanned weather, etc. Have your EMERGENCY CONTACT SHEET completed and in your backpack; it may save your life, and help reach someone who greatly cares!
Pace: There may be activities when the group is either slower or faster than your current ability. Please know that because this is a group activity, it's hard to accommodate everyone's pace perfectly. Our desire is not to leave anyone, however there have been times when it is in the best interest of all to split up. Please do your part by knowing your own abilities, communicating with the organizer head of time if you would like to start early and have us catch up or fine with finishing on your own.

Join us for a relaxing, high summer camping weekend at centrally located, all male, Mountainside Campground in Hinsdale, NH.  

Mountainside, located in a picturesque, natural setting is in the hills of southern New Hampshire. Additional campground and facility information and pictures can be found at

Reserved for us is the new Indian Pipe campsite, which includes large group site, fire ring and grill, covered cooking area and two picnic tables.  The site has one enclosed, double sleeping area for two at $50/night. Additional tent sites are $35/night for two and $20 for single tents.  

The plan is a relaxing and sociable weekend get together for GO members.   We can share group meals at our site (by prior arrangement), socialize at the Mountainside bonfire and hike, kayak and / or swim on Saturday at nearby Harriman Reservoir or Rock River, Vermont.  We can collaborate on planned activites as we get closer to July (it is minus 5 today as I write this)!

Gear and Food:  Car camping gear - tent, sleeping pad and summer sleeping bag, day pack, camp chair, coleman stove, cooler and ice, provisions for camp breakfasts and dinners.   There is a Walmart in Hinsdale for almost anything you might need. Let me know if you have any questions regarding car camping gear.

Campsite costs can be remitted upon arrival on July 20th.  Please let me know if you want to reserve the double sleeping area.

Please contact me for questions or suggestions.


Driving directions to the location and spot to meet at:

We will meet at Indian Pipe campsite anytime between 1 PM and 7 PM (not after sunset). 

Mountainside is at 87 MacDonald Drive, Hinsdale, NH 03451.
