Kids and Family

With little kids along, the Sugar River Region has taken the stress out of vacation by offering the most kid-approved activities to keep the whole family entertained. Whether it’s a trip to Moody Park or a day at the beach at Sunapee State Park, we have you covered with the ultimate destination for family fun.

Choose your Adventure

Splash around at the beach in Mt. Sunapee State Park.

Visit one of the region’s many farms to pick your own apples, blueberries, or strawberries or take a horse riding lesson. See here for a list of farms in the region.

Work as a team to find your way out of the Escape Factory or have a blacklight indoor mini golf adventure at Blackbeard’s Cove.

Go to Smith Scale Speedway in Charlestown to travel back in time and enjoy the simple pleasure of large-scale slot car racing.

Camp at one of the region’s campgrounds, such as North Star Campground nestled in the woods or Crow’s Nest Campground on the Sugar River.

Take the whole family to the Claremont Motorsports Park for an exciting Friday night race in the summer.
