About this camp

Rockywold Deephaven Camps (RDC) is a remarkable retreat that was specifically created over a hundred years ago to provide a peaceful respite from the demands of our busy lives. The camps’ natural beauty and rustic ambiance will connect you with an experience that is hard to put into words. We have exquisite scenery made up of vintage cottages nestled along the shores of Squam Lake, one of New England’s most pristine lakes, and the southern edge of New Hampshire’s White Mountains. You may find, as we do, a unique family resort that calls your spirit home.
