Small Campground with Adequate Privacy, Lots of Road Noise

Big Rock Campground is a small campground with 28 wooded sites situated immediately off the Kancamagus Highway in the White Mountains of New Hampshire.

Big Rock is a short 8 minute drive from the town of Lincoln, which offers many amenities for restocking groceries and supplies.

Big Rock was a small campground- we stayed at campsite #3, which had a long driveway and was unexpectedly private considering the proximity to other sites. There were several sites in the campground that offered ample privacy. Site #3 is very close to the bathroom but not so much that you lose privacy.

We did not have cellular service at Big Rock, but did have access to cell service in the town of Lincoln, 8 minutes away.

There was nothing particularly memorable about this campground and we did not stay there for an extended period of time, as we were just passing through. Our van fit well and the site was level. The highway is very close and therefore very loud, but it quiets down at night.

Campsite #3 is directly across from the big rock for which the campground is named, so this is a feature that kids might enjoy. The remaining sites mostly appeared to have decent privacy and ample space.

Though we did not have a chance to utilize them, the tent sites at Big Rock look to be exceptional, deeper into the woods and offer a view of the river, and are probably better than the RV sites.

Hilly campground with huge sites!

One of the greatest features of this campground, aside from being in the White Mountains, is that each site is very large, often terraced.  Several of the sites in the loop had steps approaching the tent area, either up or down.  

The campground host was found immediately upon entry to this campground, past the self-pay station. Water spigots were found throughout this campground with each site having a picnic table and firepit.  Also interesting was that this campground had several LARGE solar panels inside the campground....what they were used for was unclear.  

It was almost a 4-star campground, but with pit toilets, no showers and no cell service, it was just simple - perfect to stay a night or two!
