Even though it may be hard to believe, we are quickly rolling through spring.  That means we're only a few weeks away from the start of camping season!  If you are in the process of planning your summer camping trips, and you want to go somewhere different this year, you definitely need to plan a trip to Moose Hillock Campground.

One of the really cool features of the campground, located in the White Mountains of New Hampshire, is the Blue Lagoon Tropical Swimming pool.  Not only is it heated and lit for evening swimming, it has its own shipwreck!

Their website describes it as having an authentic Spanish Galleon that is:

an adventure for both young and old. The ship was commandeered by a group of ruthless pirates during a raging storm and ran aground within our “Blue Lagoon Tropical Swimming Pool”. Come experience for yourself the adventure of exploring this shipwreck, its Pirate Treasure and Water Cannons, along with the cave, waterfall, and slides. Kids of all ages will have a blast! Our pool is open Memorial Day weekend thru the weekend following Labor Day.

Also, throughout the summer, they set a movie screen up next to the pirate ship to create their "swim-in" movie theater.

In addition to that really cool pool, the resort features an arcade, a playground, basketball court, volleyball court, and trails for hiking and biking.  And, they have weekly entertainment throughout the summer.

If you have a camper or tent, they have campsites.  If you don't, they rent cabins.

You can find Moose Hillock Campground on Batchelder Brook Road in Warren, New Hampshire.  It's about three hours from Central Maine, but we would suggest planning to take 4+ hours because there is so much to see and do along the way.

Take A Peek At Bayley's Camping Resort

Located in Scarborough, the massive camping resort is more like a small town. It had pools, playgrounds, a store, restaurants, and more. Get more details on their Facebook page. These photos come from a Youtube video of the resort.

Take A Peek At Terramor

Opening in late summer 2020, Bar Harbor's Terramor Outdoor Resort is a breathtaking "glamping" resort. Glamping is glamor camping. Instead of "roughing it" you're camping with all modern amenities nearby. It's really the best of both worlds - the beauty of Maine with a real toilet a few steps away. Get more details about the resort and book your stay at their website.
