Three Mile Island Camp is a family-oriented facility of the Appalachian Mountain Club. Located on Lake Winnipesaukee in Meredith, NH, Three Mile Island welcomes AMC members and the general public to summer and fall vacation opportunities. Situated on an island of 43 rocky woodland acres, this shorefront camp offers families a delightful recreational experience in the heart of New Hampshire's lake district. Exploration of the woods, swimming, boating, and conservation programs are just a sampling of the pleasures this island getaway offers. Meals are served family style in a warm, social atmosphere. Three Mile Island camp is open for nine summer weeks and four fall weekends.
We have some photos from the summer of 2011:
- The newly rebuilt Eagle nest.
- Views that most campers never see from Opening Weekend.
- Volleyball, Ping Pong, and lounging on the dock during Week 2.
- Mushrooms were abundant this summer.
We always want more photos. See the instructions on the home page of our photo gallery.
These photos are older, but recently added to the web site:
- Fall Work Week September 12–17, 2010, featured a roofing project, an outhouse renovation, and some Fall scenery.
- Closing Weekend from 2010. This year's closing weekend is just around the corner.
Off-season manager Dinty Child reports:
Hi everyone, just to let you know the island came through the storm pretty much unscathed. Will and Sam Lemonick were on for the duration and only had a short power outage. We had some minor damage to a couple of the boats and some dock posts because of the pounding waves, but that was it and they will be fixed this week. The yoga retreat is happily ensconced and we are fully operational.
If you have been planning to visit this fall, there is no need to change your plans!
The latest report from Chris Martin (Senior Biologist, New Hampshire Audubon) has some sad news. Here is an excerpt from his August 5 report.
Update: See below for some of the details Chris promised in his August 5 report.
BREAKING NEWS: While I was composing the message below, I received a report from Tony Tur (USFWS) that the VINS Raptor Center in Norwich, VT has received the carcass of black A/S (PTT 79606), the 1-yr old from the Blueberry Island nest whose transmitter mysteriously stopped functioning at the end of December when the bird was in northern NJ. According to available info, it was seen alive in late July in the vicinity of Lake Morey in Fairlee, VT, but was dead when turned in to VINS. More details as they become available.
