This August, my family and I took a one week vacation to Rockywold-Deephaven Camps in Holderness, New Hampshire, nestled on the edge of Squam Lake. The Camp consists of two camps merged, these being Rockywold and Deephaven. There are well over 100 cabins, including 65 docks, two dining rooms, 4 tennis courts, a basketball court and much, much more. Most likely, it will be quite a drive (or flight) from wherever you live to get here but believe me, it's worth it. My family stayed in a four person cabin in Deephaven called Park. Our cabin was great, very roomy and definitely easy to settle into. We all slept well at night listening to the loons, and the cabin was always clean thanks to the housekeeping staff that comes every morning during breakfast hours. There is an inexhaustible amount of things to do here because there are at least five activities going on each day. These range from hikes to ping-pong tournaments to yoga and many more. Besides activities, there is always the option to go swimming and that's one that I rarely passed down, especially since the water was a warm 76 degrees! And to top it all off, after an exhausting day of outdoor activities, (if you ignore the temptation to lounge in bed and read a book) you can pig out to the delicious food that the dining hall offers. Trust me, if you come here, you won't regret it!
