We had a great time camping and activating the past three years with SOTA operators from several states. This is an opportunity for those who participate in or have interest in the “Summits on the Air” SOTA program to meet each other, have conversation, learn and activate SOTA summits in the White Mountains of New Hampshire. Join in for the entire three-night campout or for as many nights as you would like or just stop by for a while, it is an informal gathering.

Make your reservation at: Campton Campground

There are both tent and RV sites available. Senior Pass allows for discount.

Please email me at: bobac1z.nh@gmail.com to let me know which site you reserve or if you are interested in stopping by the campground for a while or joining others for dinner at the nearby Mad River Tavern Saturday July 17th 6:30pm.
