    Welcome to Bear Brook State Park Campground, nestled deep in the woods near Allenstown, NH. This place is a gem for those who crave a bit of wilderness without straying too far from civilization. The campground is open from early May to late October, offering a perfect escape during the warmer months.

    The sites here are spacious, giving you plenty of room to spread out and enjoy some privacy. You won't feel like you're on top of your neighbors, which is a big plus. The setting is a beautiful mix of maple and conifer forests, with some sites offering views of a nearby pond. It's peaceful and quiet, with no road noise to disturb your stay.

    One of the standout features is the availability of clean flush toilets and individual shower rooms. You won't have to rough it too much here. There are also potable water spigots scattered throughout the campground, so staying hydrated is a breeze. If you need to dump your tanks, there's a sanitary dump station available.

    For those who like to stay connected, be aware that cell service can be spotty. AT&T users might get 1 to 2 bars, but Verizon users might be out of luck. However, the campground store is well-stocked with essentials like ice and firewood, and the staff are friendly and helpful.

    Activities abound with hiking and mountain biking trails right from the campground. The nearby pond is perfect for a bit of kayaking or canoeing. If you're into fishing, bring your gear and enjoy some quiet time by the water.

    Pets are welcome, so feel free to bring your furry friends along. Just remember to keep them on a leash and clean up after them. All in all, Bear Brook State Park Campground offers a great mix of nature, comfort, and activities to make your stay memorable.
