Tent Camping Policies & Procedures

Tent camping takes a little more preparation than when cabin or RV camping. We've outlined a few things you should keep in mind before embarking on your New Hampshire tent camping trip.

On-Site Grocery Store

Regardless of the extra preparation, tent camping at Jellystone Park™ Lakes Region is as stress-free as possible with the help of our Ranger Station! The Ranger Station is always freshly stocked to ensure that any essentials you may have forgotten to pack, we have! From select grocery items and ice, to bug spray and souvenirs, your New Hampshire camping trip will be hassle-free and full of ease!

Pet Policy

While we have plenty of RV and cabin sites that can accommodate pets, we kindly ask that you leave your furry friends at home if you're planning to camp in a tent. However, if you really want to bring your pet along, consider reserving one of our RV Sites or cabins, which can accommodate you and your pet.

No Outside Firewood

Another important policy to note is the prohibition of outside firewood. State regulations prohibit the use of outside firewood in order to prevent the spread of the Emerald Ash Borer. But don't worry, firewood can be purchased at our Ranger Station, with the option of delivery to your campsite, ensuring that you can still enjoy a cozy campfire during your stay.
