New Boston Reopens Recreational Venues

After the conclusion of a multiyear investigation, the Air Force has reopened access to the recreational venues at New Boston AFS, N.H., announced officials at the station, which is home to the 23rd Space Operations Squadron. In 2009, officials halted camping and recreational activities there to determine if there were any residual effects from the station’s heritage as a World War II- and Korean war-era conflict training facility, states New Boston’s March 21 release. The investigation found no lasting effects prohibiting camping and recreational activities at the 2,600-acre site, according to the release. The New Boston campground is one of only two FamCamps—services-run camping facilities—in New England, and has approximately 50 campsites. The station, located 25 miles north of the Massachusetts state line, comprises mostly undeveloped forest areas.
