About This Campground

Covered Bridge Campground is located in a thick forest along one of the most scenic drives in New Hampshire. This facility provides access to the heart of White Mountain National Forest and its many recreation opportunities such as hiking, biking, fishing and sightseeing.

The quaint town of Conway is just 6 miles away and provides shops, restaurants and other conveniences.

The White Mountains boast pristine forests, clear mountain streams and rivers and the tallest peaks in the Northeast. The forest encompasses nearly 800,000 acres in New Hampshire and western Maine, and is one of the most popular in the country.

Recreation

The adjacent Kancamagus Highway, referred to locally as "the Kanc," is a National Scenic Byway that offers some of the best fall foliage viewing in New England. The 26.5-mile road connects the towns of Lincoln to the west and Conway to the east, and takes about one hour to drive from end to end.

The cool, cascading Swift River is a great spot to wade or fish for brook trout during warm summer months.

The area is extremely popular for hiking. The 3-mile Boulder Loop Trail and a 0.5-mile nature trail can be accessed near the campground.

Learn more about recreation in the national forest.

Facilities

The facility is organized into two loops. Accessible vault restrooms and a hand pump for water are provided. No showers or dump station are available.

Natural Features

The campground is nestled in an old hardwood forest near the Swift River. The forest is home to many species of northern wildlife, including moose, white-tailed deer and black bear. Almost 200 species of birds, including the rare Bicknell's Thrush, live in the forest.

Nearby Attractions

The nearby towns of Conway and North Conway offer tours, shopping, restaurants and many other amenities.

Within an hour drive, campers can access the Presidential Range, which consists of the tallest mountains in the forest, including the 6,288-ft. Mount Washington, the highest peak north of the Smoky Mountains and east of the Mississippi River.

The White Mountains region hosts four alpine and five nordic ski areas, which provide year-round recreation opportunities.
