Summer Camping Special in New Hampshire State Parks

(Concord, NH) The 2010 summer season marks the 75th Anniversary of the state park system under the NH Division of Parks and Recreation.  
            “We are excited to be celebrating 75 years of New Hampshire State Parks," said Ted Austin, Director of the Division of Parks and Recreation.  “We encourage people to get out and enjoy and celebrate outdoor recreation in our state parks.”
            In celebration of the 75th Anniversary, the Division is offering a summer camping special.  For new reservations that are made, campers can receive $7.50 off a campsite per night during a midweek stay, Monday – Thursday nights, from July 6th - August 26th.  To take advantage of this summer special, reservations can be made either by calling 877- 647-2757 or online at, using the promo code "75summer”.  
            Starting July 1st the fee to make a reservation will increase from $8.75 to $9.25. The Division has been working with ReserveAmerica for its camping reservation system since 2008.  The relationship has streamlined the reservation process by allowing campers to make reservations 24/7, providing extended hours to make reservations on the phone, and offering the ability to make reservations 11 months in advance.  
            The Division also offers seasonal options for those who will be frequenting the parks more often.  A family season pass is available which gets two adults and two children into the day-use parks for the season.  Coupon books are another way to save money when visiting several times during the season.  All the options are fully described on the division’s website at
