Blair Woodland Natural Area (BWNA)
The Blair Woodland Natural Area was given as a gift to the Town of Campton in 2002 to be kept as a natural area for wildlife and the general public for “low impact” uses suchg as nature study and enjoyment while walking, snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, picnicking, or fishing. The 17-acre natural area is maintained by the Campton Conservation Commission and includes several wetland areas, a regenerated pasture, roughly 1,000 feet of riparian habitat, and mixed hardwood/coniferous forest habitat. The natural area also features aspects of Campton’s rich historical legacy.
Pattee Conservation Park (PCP)
Pattee Conservation Park was established in 2009, when the Town of Campton purchased the property of the late Ed Pattee from his heirs with Conservation Fund dollars. The land is comprised of field and forest in a prominent location, at the corner of NH Rt. 175 and Blair Road. It also abuts the Blair State Forest, providing easy public access to this State-owned parcel. There is a small parking area with park rules posted on NH Rt. 175.
There are trails through the forested portion of the property, suitable for family walks and/or picnicking. The field is maintained as a meadow, and is a great place for viewing wildlife. In 2011, the Campton Garden Club partnered with the Campton Conservation Commission and Campton Historical Society to plant a disease-resistant elm tree in the field. Please come and enjoy all that this property has to offer!
