Welcome to Tentrr Camping in New Hampshire’s Monadnock

Camping in New Hampshire’s Monadnock region is a serene and memorable experience that will take you back in time. Around Mount Monadnock--a word that comes from the Abnacki Indigenous People’s word for “mountain that stands alone.” The word has been adopted by geographers to refer to any singular mountain that rises above a plain.

Camping here you’ll be tied to the literary works of Henry David Thoreau, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Mark Twain and Abbot Thayer, who all drew inspiration from this idyllic land.

Hiking to the summit of Mount Monadnock is the primary activity of campers, but there are four different trails you can use to climb the 3,165 feet in elevation, including the trails White Dot, White Cross, White Arrow, and Birchtoft. The shortest of these is White Dot, a two hour hike that leaves from the Park Headquarters, but they all offer different views.

The vision of the Monadnock’s conservators is to ensure that the area can be used year-round, with camping, hiking, snowshoeing, cross-country skiing and picnicking. They also want it to be a quiet and restful place for hikers and camper, providing recreation that is low-key and non-commercial.

As a haven for wildlife, Monadnock campers can expect to see a lot of wildlife, including beavers, black bears, bobcats, eastern coyotes, moose, New England cottontails, raccoons and red foxes. And if you’re into birding, there are nighthawks, ospreys, peregrine falcons, and terns. And if you’re in the right season, there are butterflies! Monarchs, White Mountain Fritillaries, and Karner Blues.

So if you’re looking for a non-commercial camping getaway with lots of wildlife, beautiful hikes, and a tie to history, camp at New Hampshire’s Monadnock.
