Sanbornton - 34 Wadleigh Rd, Sanbornton, NH 03269

I-93 north to exit 22. RIGHT at the exit ramp's end onto 127 west.

RIGHT onto Johnson Road (which happens to be across from the southbound exit ramp)

Road winds and comes down to a one-car-bridge, so don't speed.

After bridge, stay uphill to your left.

At the top of that hill, with old cemetery on the right corner and Wadleigh Road mailboxes (Wadleigh Rd sign disappeared in the winter), take that right.  

Red barn on the left. Follow parking directions. 

Barn is a large heated beautiful hall. No high heels, please.


Wind in the Timothy (our house), Canterbury, NH

        322 Shaker Road, third house north of Shaker Village

I-93 to Concord
Exit 15 East ramp onto  I-393 toward Loudon/Portsmouth
Exit 3, Rt 106 North (turn left at end of Ramp) toward Loudon/Laconia
Go 6.5 miles on 106
Turn left onto Shaker Rd and stay straight for 3.3 miles
3rd house after Shaker Village on LEFT is our house (If you get to brick house on Right you've gone too far)
    IMPORTANT: Driveway curves to left immediately, this is to distinguish from a range road across from the brick house that goes straight down and you'll never get out!



Canterbury Parish House in Canterbury Center, off of Rt. 132.

        Canterbury is just north of Concord, NH off of I-93 or Rt. 106.


Gilmanton Academy & Town Hall, Gilmanton, NH

        Junction of Routes 107 and 140


East Concord Community Center, Concord, NH

        Exit 16 off I-93, bear right and right again onto Eastman St


Maine Fiddle Camp, Montville, Maine

Montville is right next to Liberty (in fact, they used to be one town called Davistown), just a little ways off US Route 3 in the inland part of Maine's central midcoast region.

From the intersection of Rt. 220 and Rt. 173 in Liberty, proceed South on 173 one mile, through Liberty Village, then when 173 makes a 90 turn to the right, bear left (it will seem almost like going straight) off 173 for one mile, taking the first right after one mile onto the Trotting Park Road. Proceed to the end of the dirt road one mile, turn right onto the Camp Neofa road and proceed to campgrounds, following the signs.

You can download maps from our "stuff to print" page.

We support and encourage carpooling. It's better for the planet and also helps prevent the campground from being cluttered with so many vehicles.

We also request that once you leave the paved roads you drive slowly (15mph) so as to preserve our good relations with our neighbors on that road.


  • If you are flying to Maine for Fiddlecamp, we recommend that you fly into Portland, Maine (PWM). Portland is about two hours' drive from camp.

  • Boston (BOS) is two hours south of Portland but has more flights and is sometimes cheaper. There is terrific bus service from Boston to Portland and sometimes further north. Check out Concord Trailways for that information.

  • Manchester NH is another option for flights - about an hour and a half southwest of Portland, where you can sometimes find cheaper flights
