Swain Brook Campground

Swain Brook campground was first opened in May of 1995 in rustic Wentworth, New Hampshire. Wentworth is located in the southwest section of the White Mountains, approximately 12 miles west of I-93 and 12 miles east of I-91 (Vermont). The town is a small rural community with one general store, various historic buildings, and lots of forest space; this is perfect for campers who are looking to escape the urban scene. Wentworth is part of the Baker River Valley, comprised of several small towns and is considered to be in the “quiet area” of New Hampshire. If you are looking to relax away from all the highway noise, this is the place for you. If you need a few things to start your out-door experience, visit the campground store.

Our campground is a family oriented park with quiet hours from 10:00pm to 8:00am. Campers are allowed to have a fire as late as they want, as long as they are quiet and respect the rights of others. We do have night patrols and quiet hours are enforced. If you are looking to leave us a mess or want to disturb your neighbors, we suggest you try another campground before we ask you to leave.

Get explict directions to the campground.

The campground covers 417 forest acres on the south side of Sentinel Mountain and ranges from 650′ in elevation to 1290′. The top of Sentinel Mountain is approximately 2200′ in elevation. The lower sixty-five acre section of the park is used for tent and trailer camping with the remaining 352 acres occupied by our very own nature park. Swain Brook, the largest of five mountain brooks contained within the campground, drops 520 feet in elevation over its 1.6 mile stretch within the property, offering beautiful cascading waterfalls and dozens of stone and gravel water holes.

Hidden Jewel ! Awesome


August 23, 2007

This is one of the nicest discoveries for us in 30+ years of avid camping. The tent sites are distinctly separated from the RV area and each one seems to have it's own unique flavor and set of amenities. They are mostly all large and wooded & private ! Swain Brook itself is a beautiful little mountain stream with many beautiful cascades and pools to explore. The campground has some surprising nice amenities. Fantastic place for a true natural experience for adults & kids. Will undoubtedly be going back for furthur exploration and R&R !
