Kevin and Ruth staying at a campground? And it’s a private campground? And at $35 a night!! What’s up with that…!!??
Well here’s the story.
We are going to hike up Mount Washington. In fact, if you are reading this Sunday morning, we’re probably already half way up the mountain.
But with Whiskey not being able to hike with us (at 15 years old, she is unfortunately beyond these kind of hikes) and the heat that has been around lately, we had no choice but to find electrical hookups for Sherman so that we could put his A/C on for Whiskey while we’re gone for a six hour or so hike. Plus, our holding tanks were getting full and our fresh water tank was getting empty…so we figured it was time for a night in a campground.
We could have done better than $35 a night, however this particular campground was also advertising a $10 a night special for just parking in their field and using their dump station. If more campgrounds charged this kind of overnight fee, we would probably use them. So we made an effort to come to this campground simply because of their $10 a night dry camping offer. So, we’re going to stay one night at $35 full hookups, and probably a second night in their field at $10. Average of $22.50 per night, and no taxes.
And, it’s a nice wooded campground, almost reminding us of a State Park type of campground. www.applehillcamping.com
We didn’t really do very much yesterday. We hopped in the little car and drove from our spot at Attitash Ski Hill up to Bethlehem, New Hampshire. We checked out this campground and decided on it. Then drove to to the cog railway and the trailhead parking lot where we will park the little car while we hike up Mount Washington. Then picked up Sherman and brought him to the campground.
A bit of a driving day, but at least most of it was in the little car.
Sorry, no pictures today but we are looking forward to reporting back to you Monday morning about our hike!
