http://www.nhstatepar... Last year I rented a canoe for the weekend and launched right from my campsite, it was great! I am going to take Monday off and make it a 3 day weekend - but join us however long you can. We will go canoeing/kayayaking and will improvise on some hikes. There is a manned fire-watchtower we can hike to. Bring your own food and be prepared to cook and feed yourself. We can see about sharing when we are up there. Also, please indicate in your rsvp comment if you have made a reservation.
