New Hampshire Camping Tax Passed

A new 9 percent room and meal tax on New Hampshire campgrounds was passed by the state this afternoon.

Ron and Claire Bogan love the great outdoors. But, lately it's not just the rain that's put a damper on their summer camp experience. For the first time, New Hampshire has just passed a 9 percent room and meal tax on all local campgrounds.

David Edgerly manages Great Bay Camping in Newfield N.H. He says with the poor economy, campsites barely have enough money to get through the season. A 9 percent meal and room tax increase could put many campgrounds out of business.

"We charge $2,300 for a season now. It's another $225 for the taxes that will wipe them out basically," Edgerly said.
