leantos are the way to go,august no bugs.my daughter (now 11 yrs old) have been going there for 8 years-very kid friendly.traveller loop much more intense than baxter peak-more above tree line travel. we go there during the perseid meteor shower peak,make some hot chocolate,go out in the canoe,drift around watching the shooting stars-doesn’t get much better….
boating, swimming, hiking, surrounded by beauty. the park ranger we had was amazing. my daughter did not want to leave!
great pond with easy access, nice for day rental of canoe. lean-tos right on water
Small campground with tent sites, a couple of cabins, and several lean-tos. Access to South Branch Pond and the Traveler Mountain Range is unbelievable, with sites right on the edge of the lower pond.
The rangers are very helpful, wood is always available, and the night sky is void of any light pollution. Nearest town is about 1 hour away, so come prepared!
