Tully Lake includes the Campground, and a wonderful recreation area with picnic tables, a large Picnic Pavilion that can be reserved for free, and multiple launch sites for Kayaks & Canoes and one boat launch for motorized boats. I love it here, and have been many times. Maintained by the Army Corps of Engineers, I find it to be well-cared...

Our site supposedly was right on the lake, though we couldn't see the water from it. The grass was so tall, and the soil right next to the water was muddy and smelly. The picnic tables are tiny compared to other campgrounds. A day before our camping start date they sent us an e-mail with the warning about a swimming...

This is a beautiful lake with several islands to kayak around! My friend and I launched our kayaks from the Tully Dam boat ramp (free) where there are waterless toilets and a well maintained picnic area. This area is right on Route 32 in Royalston just north of the Athol town line. It wasn't too busy for a Saturday afternoon...

Camped here this week, and it was beautiful. There are private sites and more open sites, in general a lot of space between sites. Many are on the water. It is fairly quiet, there was a family with children near our site but they were always quiet and did not disturb us in any way. The kayaking is great and...

We have been there twice and have loved it both times. Sites are larger than most campgrounds and easy to arrange for two adjoining sites for larger groups. It is car camping, but you have to leave your cars in the entry parking lot and use their wheelbarrows to bring your stuff to your site (very easy to push). While...

I used to camp here almost all summer every year for 10-12 years. When the corps of engineers ran it the daily rate was $2.00 a night. Then they played games with the camp; declaring it not to be opening then quietly without fanfare opening it for 3 or 4 years. Many people didn't take advantage of it during those...

This Trustees campground is awesome. You must haul all your gear with a cart so pack wisely. Most sites are fairly private and a lot af families camp here so we never encountered any loud party people There are flush toilets and a shower. Rent canoes or kayaks. Lots of nice hiking trails. Serene and lots of nature but still...

Camped here the past couple nights and we had a great time! The sites are secluded and each has a fire and room for at least one tent. There are some with lots of room and the maximum is 4 tents I think. You park your car in the lot and sign in and take your stuff to your site...

Wow the setting here is pretty awesome - very deep woods and most are on the water. Very private sites (most of them) and seem very large. But I have had similar settings at other sites in NH so I was disappointed by some of the challenges here: - swimming is tough without a public beach (our site was swampy...

A friend told us about this tent-only campground and when we checked a few weeks ago only three sites were available. We booked # 11 and do not regret at all. It was spacy and private, not close to the water but we cannot swim in May, so it was perfect for us. Rangers are super nice and friendly and...
