We just recently moved here from Winchester. My family moved here because our life long dream was to someday buy and run our own campground. So last summer we packed up everything and moved here to live and work here at camp full time. The town has been nothing but kind to us supporting us and our business. All of the seasonals here have helped, for the most part, ease our transition in the smoothest way possible to ensure the longevity of this camp ground.

I love the small town experience and sense of community from living in Henniker. I've lived here my whole life and have great pride in the town.
