Travel Directions

Note please: Your GPS and online mapping may steer you down a road you cannot pass!
Please follow our directions below the interactive Google Map.

Ashuelot River Campground is in the middle of covered bridge territory and covered bridges have limitations! The most direct route to the campground from NH Route 10 will take you over the Thompson Bridge in West Swanzey, but if you have a trailer in tow, or have a rig that is over 8 feet tall, you won’t be able to pass.

  • Trailer in tow or over 8 feet tall: From NH 10 north- or southbound, take South Winchester Street to Denman Thompson Avenue. Turn right on Denman Thompson and cross the river; turn left onto Homestead Avenue. Homestead turns into Railroad Avenue at the stop sign; continue on Railroad and veer left onto Pine Street. Pine Street curves around, back toward the river – we are at the end of the road. FROM ROUTE 12 NORTH: Turn left onto 32 South just below Keene. (You can also continue past this turn and turn left – West – onto Route 101, then onto Route 10 South in about a mile. Follow directions above.) Follow 32 South for about 2.5 miles and veer right at the fork between the two schools onto Eaton Road. In about 3 miles look for the blue and white trailer icon on a sign at Pine Street. Take a sharp right onto Pine and come all the way to the end.
  • Single vehicle under 8 feet tall, with nothing in tow: From NH 10 north- or southbound, take California Street and cross the river on the Thompson Bridge. Continue through the village and turn left onto Railroad Street at the stop sign. In a short way, veer left onto Pine Street. Pine Street curves around, back toward the river – we are at the end of the road.
  • For supplies on the way in: On NH 10, coming from the north, there is a Market Basket grocery store between Swanzey and Keene. There is also Gomarlo’s Food and Circus near the turn onto South Winchester Street. We are a short ten-minute drive from Keene where there are all the stores and shops anyone could want.
