Milan Hill State Park is located ten miles north of Berlin near popular areas for hiking, picnicking, fishing, canoeing, kayaking, and wildlife viewing. From this hilltop campground and the fire tower located there, you can get a complete view of the mountain ranges in New Hampshire, Maine, Vermont, and Canada. The park has undergone an extensive renovation and this primitive camping area has added four yurts and relocated six campsites. The campground is open for walk-in camping beginning on May 9, 2014.

The New Hampshire State Park Experience

With storm clouds threatening on my visit to Milan Hill State Park, I checked into one of the yurts secluded in the thick forest of the park. The big purple yurt was dry as a bone on the inside and made for the perfect escape from the sudden showers of the day. Making use of the great over-sized chair, I grabbed my book and listened to the “thwap” of raindrops on the yurt as I waited for a break in the weather.  Just before sunset the rain stopped and I took my chance to explore the rest of the Milan Hill State Park.  To read more about my experience click here, The Milan Hill Yurts.

      
Below are some pictures of our new Adirondack shelter which has been built on site C6, close to yurt 4. It is a 16x16 foot area. The deck itself is closer to 16x12. It is presently a non-reservable site and should stay that way for the rest of the season.  Next year it will be a reservable site.
