On Tuesday, the Berlin City Council (New Hampshire) heard plans to expand Jericho Mountain State Park’s camping and other facilities.

As per a report, Phil Bryce, director of the N.H. Department of Parks and Recreation, presented to the council during the work session.

Bryce said there would be an expansion of 20 to 25 sites at the campground area with 20 new campground sites, a new dump station, and a septic system.

The plan also calls for an alternative ATV trail from the visitor center to the parking lot and boat launch area with full hookups for RVs. 

Bryce believes that expanding the campground will make the park more financially viable.

According to Bryce, the feasibility study should be c completed by September. The design work will follow next fall and winter, and bidding will begin spring of 2023, with construction slated to begin as early as the fall of 2023.

The council looked at the improvement possibilities to the park with approval. They assured Bryce that the city was willing to work with the N.H. Department of Parks & Recreation in any way possible.

According to the New Hampshire State Parks website, Jericho Mountain State Park provides opportunities for trail riding. Park-goers can also enjoy swimming, fishing, canoeing, and picnicking at Jericho Lake.

The park has a 20-site ride-in/ride-out campground, cabins, a bathhouse, and a Visitors Center. The park is also home to the ever-popular, Jericho ATV Festival.

The campground has 20 campsites that include five cabins, four tent sites, two adirondack shelters, and nine RV sites,
