We have a nice private location on our seventeen acres in rural Richmond NH. Plenty of room for you to stretch out with your screen house or canopy next to the fire pit. No electricity or water on site but if your water tank is low you can fill up at our house or stop by to use our high speed internet or phone and have tea / coffee with us. The site is right next to a Pond and you will be our guest for swimming or you can fish for bass from shore, canoe, kayak or your small boat. (License required) The property around the lake is undeveloped so it's still prestine. There is a public boat ramp at the end of the road and only small engines are allowed on the lake. We are on a well maintained gravel dead end road with only two full time residents. Large level spot with enough space for more than one big RV. We have free fire wood so you can leave yours home and not break any state laws. You can explore our woods and sit on our big rock or do nothing at all. This is a great place for you to hang your hat for a while and feel safe. We live within walking distance so you may walk up, sit by Susan’s perennial garden and use the high speed internet to plan your next adventure or review our portfolio of local attractions and brochures.

There is more than enough room for you to park your tow or dingy vehicles near your RV.
We are usually around to answer any questions but we won't bother you if you would like to be left alone.
Mount Monadnock a 3200 foot elevation mountain is less than 1/2 hr away. This is the most climbed mountain in the US with many trails and great views of the Monadnock region. Only five miles away is Rhododendron State Park although it’s beautiful year round the blooms in July are spectacular. We have the same wild variety Rhododendron Maximus growing in our backyard (deep hoot). We advise you to go to nhstateparks.org before you visit us. A short drive south on Rte 32 is Tully Lake with hiking trails, frisbee golf and boating. Farther south is Quabin resovoir with nesting eagles.

This is a beautiful piece of property along with a very helpful host. If I lived in the area I would make this a destination at least a few times a year.
I highly recommend staying at Lake Buffalo. Even in the pouring rain, this location is a hidden gem.
Their spot is just off the main road so it's super easy to find, but still quiet and secluded. I spent some time at the main house to do some downloads and the couple was very kind and made great conversation! Overall a great experience and a good time!
This was our first outing with BDW. If other BDW hosts are like this one, it's a great program. We felt very welcomed to his property and because the campsite is 1/2 mile from his house, we didn't feel like we were intruding. We were given information about surrounding areas of interest and with the nearby pond, it was easy to find something to do. We would definitely return to Lake Buffalo if the occasion arose.
What a fabulous spot and friendly just. I can't wait to come back some day. The privacy and swim in the lake is such an added bonus! Loved our overnight stay and campfire with woo provided as a great bonus!
Great place to camp. Nice open, private area. Lake Buffalo was prompt and helpful. We had a wonderful time swapping travel stories.
Camping at its best!
The nicest people there are. We would recommend their place for any stay.
It was a great stay at Lake Buffalo's place. He was gracious and accommodating. There is a pretty lake on the property, accessed by a short path from the camping site. We had a pretty busy itinerary planned, such as a climb of Mount Monadnock (less then a half-hour away), so we didn't get to talk to our host that much. There were mosquitos, which I imagine is routine at this time of year in the New Hampshire woods. Overall, our stay was very enjoyable.
We just had a quick one night stay with Lake Buffalo on our way up to Acadia National Park. Nice location with hiking trails to the adjacent lake. Our host gave us great directions and had plenty of firewood if we had chosen to build one. He also came down and checked on us to make sure we got situated and needed anything. Another great experience with BDW… thank you very much!
We had a wonderful stay at Buffalo Lake. Our host was welcoming and fun to talk with. The spot was off the beaten path and a short walk to a swimming spot.
Peaceful, quiet, private, nice hike to the lake... Very nice hosts! Really happy we found this place. The hosts welcomed us with open arms! Could not have been more perfect!
Fantastic location, extremely quiet. Easy access from the road, plenty of space to turn around. Was wonderful having a cup of coffee and watching the sun rise over the lake. Great communication with the host, hope to stay again some day!
The host was very friendly and accommodating and brought us information re the area. Unfortunately we were only staying one night and were unable to explore. Big spot with plenty of room for 2 rvs and the tow vehicles. Extremely quiet with an easy walk to the lake. My dogs really appreciated being off leash. Would like to return and explore the area. Thanks so much!
We easily found the remote campsite, a large clearing just off a gravel road. had a bonfire going within a half hour and enjoyed it the rest of the evening. Did see some moose tracks, so keep your eyes open, deer too! Jerry dropped by for some pleasant conversations. Nice walk to the nearby lake in the morning....thanks!
The location is exactly as described. We had a great time on the property and in the surrounding area.
Our host was welcoming, attentive, and helpful. We were greeted when we arrived and shepherded into our spot. We were given many tips and directions regarding the area and told where to find the Big Rock on the property (worth a visit).
We will definitely be requesting to stay here again!
Just can't say enough good about this property and the hosts. Our first trip with the dogs and a new camper and it was perfect! The pond. The private beach. The canoe. The scenery. Just serene. Highly recommend! Thanks again!
Our hosts were completely gracious! The site they had prepared for us was beautiful and spacious and extremely private, you couldn’t ask for more. He checked in with us every day to make sure everything was ok and pleasure to talk to. The nearby lake was refreshing and stocked with fish. We would absolutely recommend this site and Host. We would definitely stay at this site when back in the area.
Absolutely astounding. Try once you will always return. Hosts with the most caring qualities.
This was an unbelievable stay. Our children met us, grands too. We laughed, played, ate, swam, kayaked, hiked and played ball. Our hosts were terrific. As we are newbies a year at Boondocking I have questions of others for future campers, they sure got me all set up. This is a wonderful stay hands down. Thank you for sharing. Kerls Kastle
Wonderful host and a beautiful site with a gorgeous pond a short walk away. Host went above and beyond to make sure we had everything we needed. He even gave us some fresh green beans from his garden. Our little girl loved the wild blueberries along the path to the pond. We really enjoyed our time there and hope to go back someday!!!
Spot is minutes walk from a lake with a beach. The host gave us a beach permit so we could use it, even offered us his kayak. He was a terrific host, allowing us to pop up to us house to use his wifi. Will definitely be staying here again one day. A true hidden gem!!
We spent a relaxing few days at this great site in the woods. Dan caught big bass in Cass Pond...the canoe and beach pass got good use! This has to be one of our favorite places to stay. We used our solar to keep power charged and dumped our tanks at the Keene Wastewater Treatment site behind the Keene Airport. A great facility! Thanks again!
The place is awesome. There was tons of firewoood for us to use on a huge lot.
Host was so gracious, even offered us a kayak or canoe for the beautiful lake that's a short walk away through the woods.
We will certainly be back!
We spent a wonderful one night stay at "Lake Buffalo" (which isn't really a Lake - ask Jerry).
We were greeted by our host after we arrived. Our host was friendly and curious about us. The site offered so much like the free firewood, outside chairs and walking paths. We availed ourselves of the town beach on Cass Pond - a welcome dip after our dusty rail trail ride. Highly recommend this host and site!
We had a wonderful time. This is a beautiful spot! A lake nearby and hiking trails - who could ask for more. We had a campfire and cooked out. The host was hospitable and very familiar with the area. I highly recommend.
We had a great 3 days boondocking at Lake Buffalo’s site. The host met me upon arrival and directed me to the site which is down the road a bit and near Cass Pond. We had plenty of room to set up the camper and screen room. There was a nice big rock fire pit with plenty of wood. There is no cell service at the site but a short bike ride back to the hosts home we were able to use their WiFi and replenish our water supply. The host had a nice notebook with flyers of local places to visit. We went up to the Keene area and did some great bike riding on the awesome rail trails.
Look forward to an trip to this area as there is lots more to explore :-)
Thank you Lake Buffalo for a wonderful weekend in the woods!
Jerry was the most accommodating host! This was our first Boondockers Welcome stay with our new-to-us travel trailer. Jerry met us, escorted us to the camping area on his property, gave us a beach pass for the local swimming area, and even delivered a canoe to us to use. Dan caught 2 great bass on the pond near our site and we swam each night. We stayed 3 nights and toured all over the area, visiting 6 covered bridges and driving to the top of Pack Monadnock where we could see over 55 miles (as the crow flies) to Boston. We were able to test all of our systems, as well as checking out our new solar panel. We loved the entire experience and hope to visit again. Thanks Jerry! All our future Boondockers Welcome experiences will have a tough act to follow!
Even though I wasn't able to actually stay with these folks because it got too late and I can't drive in the dark, they were so sweet to say if Walmart wouldn't let me stay I could still come on down if I needed to since they would be up late.
We cannot speak more highly of Jerry's hosting site and his hospitality. We had a wonderful time by the firepit and were very thankful that Jerry had us stay. We would love to come back! Thank you Jerry.
We stayed with Lake Buffalo for a couple of nights in early October and were delighted by the spot, which was close to a gorgeous lake and very quiet and secluded. Our host was friendly, kind and a great source of local knowledge and went above and beyond to help us. It was an absolute pleasure to stay there.
Spent a wonderful 3 days dry camping.
Our hosts were very responsive to email and met us on arrival to the camping site.
They took the time to welcome us and brief us on the region, where to go for groceries, and where to go have coffee.
The location is in beautiful New Hampshire with Brattleboro Vermont to the West and Covered Bridge country and Keene To the North.
Quiet and secluded, it was a wonderful spot to relax, have a campfire and enjoy nature.
We'd love to stay here again and recommend it highly!
Response time was super for our last minute holiday weekend getaway. Our host was extremely accommodating, helpful, and offered us many helpful tips while at the same time leaving us to enjoy the quiet solitude of the camp site.
