Danforth Bay Camping & RV Resort and The Bluffs RV Resort is owned and operated by the Hoyt Family of East Madison. In July of 2000, the Hoyt family purchased 3 parcels of land on property once known as Shawtown Campground. After purchasing the land, the Hoyts began the task of turning the campground into one of New Hampshire's finest family camping resorts. Construction took a full year before it was ready to open for its first season in 2001.
In 2006, The Bluffs RV Resort opened. The Bluffs is an expansion of Danforth Bay that was designed specifically as a seasonal and extended-stay RV resort for active adults over 50, offering a 10,000 sf clubhouse, tennis and pickleball courts and much more.
