TAMWORTH — Chocorua Camping Village KOA unveiled its glamping teepees on Friday, June 21, with a ribbon cutting ceremony hosted by the Mt. Washington Valley Chamber of Commerce.

Chocorua Camping Village KOA provides a destination camping and lodging experience on more than 180 acres of lake and riverside wilderness.

The teepees are set in natural beauty with 5 miles of hike-able, bike-able forest trails, 50-acre Moores Pond and the Chocorua River.

Sibo Kizo (Abenaki/Wabanaki for River and Sun) and Waju Abazi (Mountain in the Trees) are 22-foot diameter timber and 100 percent organic cotton canvas teepees.

The destination lodging was designed by owner Tamara Spencer and built by Nomadic teepees of Bend, Ore.

"The two teepees are a unique addition to our existing lodging options which range from camper rentals, off-the-grid cabin excursions, and full-amenity cabins," said Spencer. "Each tipi sleeps up to five guests with a double bed, futon bunk bed, small fridge, set on a deck with a grill, fireplace and picnic table. The shower and restroom facilities are conveniently located nearby."

Family built, owned and operated since 1973, Chocorua Camping Village KOA, located 893 White Mountain Highway in Chocorua, has a camp store, recreation hall, pancake breakfast pavilion and boat rentals available for the ease and enjoyment of their guests. Reservations are available at chocoruacamping.com or by calling (603) 323-8536.
