Camp Ossipee is a historic summer camp in Holderness, New Hampshire. Located on Porter Road on the shores of Squam Lake, it consists of two adjacent family camps owned by the Porter and Hurd families. The older of the two camps was built in 1902, and features an electric railroad to bring supplies to the camp from the road.[2]

The camp was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2012.[1]
