Directions to the campground:
There are no labeled signs to the campground, just a small sign with a camping symbol on it.
Just after the entrance to Mount Sunapee ski area you will see the sign directing you to the first ski area parking lot on your left.
You will see another sign in the parking lot directing you to the service road that runs to the summit. Follow this steep and winding road up about a mile and turn left at the gate into the campground parking lot.
