My wife and I are currently in NH, having road tripped from CO. We are hoping to spend 2-3 weeks climbing at Rumney but have discovered that the camping here is expensive. Most any campground charges $24/day. The commonly used option across from the Meadows parking lot is a no-go because the landowner does not allow pets (we have 2 dogs). Anyone in the area willing to give us a parking spot for our truck/camper? Please call us on our cell at (edit-phone number removed). Thanks a lot.

Fred, the wall mart parking lot up the street is free, good bathrooms and quiet after 11.00pm It's not real level so you need a few planks to level out.

We camped at the Wal-Mart a couple nights. Sometimes quiet but often a trucker wouold be there overnight running his engine 20 feet from us. NOt ideal but doable for a night or 2 if you're new to the area nad trying to get your bearings.

There is one campground in Rumney that are around $10 per night with showers. Of course, I can't remember the name right now! but if you are still in NH and looking I would suggest going to the MA climbers thread in the East Coast forum to ask them.

here is the thread:

Even though this thread is old and recently picked up again, I thought the readers would profit from the Routes Database for Rumney, where camping information is already posted ... http://www.rockclimbing.com/routes/listArea.php?AreaID=576

I'd personally like to see more of this in the RDB for every area. Lots of work, but very helpful information.
