Four Season Camping in New England-

A Listing of Off-Season Campgrounds
and RV Parks in the Northeast


The following list includes Off-Season Campgrounds in

Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New York State, Rhode Island,  Vermont

The Season for campgrounds and RV parks in the Northeast is normally Memorial Day through Columbus Day (sometimes Labor Day) due to the early freezing temperatures, and the majority of campground water pipes are either above the ground surface or at a shallow depth.

We have no connection with these campgrounds and suggest you do contact them before setting out.

If you know of a Northeast campground we are missing or changes in any we have listed send us an email to Off-Season Camping.
