It may be hard to believe, but the kickoff to camping season in New England is just a few weeks away.  Sure, there are plenty of people who love to camp year round, but the real kickoff for regular people is Memorial Day weekend.

If you have not booked your campsites yet, you are going to want to get a move on.

Well, if you are looking for a new spot to try this year, why not make a trip to New Hampshire's Mount Washington Valley?

Located at the northern end of Mount Washington Valley, just a few minutes' drive from the base of Mount Washington, you'll find Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park: Glen Ellis.  The campground, which is in the town of Glen, has been around for years.  A few years ago, however, it was purchased and became one of the Jellystone Parks.

Almost immediately, the company began to make many improvements to the 55 acre campground.  Cabins, onsite amenities, and more.  One of the largest will open in the middle of next month.

According to, one of the new additions for the 2022 camping season is an epic waterpark.  The 50,000 square foot water park will feature swimming pools, water cannons, a 750 gallon water dump bucket, and more.  The highlight for many will be the 165 foot long water slides!
